Fairies (Daoine Sí or síoga in Irish) are widespread in Irish mythology. In the age of Christianity, the mixture of Celtic and Christian folklore was combined into many of the stories we know today. When the Tuatha de Danann were defeated by the Milesians, it is said that they fled into the Sidhe underground. After that, they became known as the Daoine Sidhe (Sí). Thousands of years ago, people believed that the Fairy World/Realm was located underground where the Tuatha de Danann was forced to flee and that a fairy tree connected the Fairy realm with our everyday world. High importance is still placed on a Fairy tree.
