Crock of Gold 14

“After the Thin Woman of Inis Magrath had left the god she visited all the fairy forts of Kilmasheogue, and directed the Shee who lived there to be in waiting at the dawn on the summit of the mountain;... these, with their hosts, sang upon the summit of the hill welcoming the god.... From north and south they came, and from east and west, bright and happy beings, a multitude, without fear, without distraction, so that soon the hill was gay with their voices and their noble raiment.”

From Chapter XVIII, The Crock of Gold by James Stephens
