Thread Name: folklore: Macananty 'King of the Fairies'
Subject: Macananty 'King of the Fairies'
Can anyone shed some light on 'Macananty' (or sometimes known as Macalinden)King of the Fairies in County Down, N Ireland?
I read a poem about him lately and have tried to find out more but sad to say 'NOTHING' has turned up. The poem was written in the 1800's so I thought there might be some folklore about him in local books, libraries (anywhere) but nothing! can anyone help?
