Question
In Celtic mythology there are a number of instances when Otherworld beings visit the world of man and vice versa (Niamh, Oisin, Liu, the Morrigan, Cuchulain, Emer, Etain).  Are there any accounts of this happening in the post-pagan period up to the present (?Green Children of Woolpit)?

Thanks

Answer
Dear Michael,

Not to my knowledge.
However, you might contact Sandy Percevel at Templehouse, Ballymote, Sligo who has a much better feel for the otherworld and can
possibly assist. You can write him using the above address.

With best wishes,
