Welcome back to the Downhome Podcast.
Long-time Downhome contributor Dennis Flynn joins us to talk about the endurance of fairy stories in the province. His article The Fairy Month of May appeared in the May 2018 issue of Downhome magazine.
Fairies could lead you astray in the forest, wreak havoc on your life, or peacefully pass you by. Newfoundland and Labrador is rich infairy lore, brought over by Irish settlers hundreds of years ago.
Dennis recounts his childhood growing up in Colliers surrounded by cautionary tales about these supernatural creatures and offers helpful advice on how to avoid being the target of these imps.
