An Irish MP has blamed damage to a road on fairies, saying that disturbance to their forts caused a dip in the tarmac.
In Irish folklore, tampering with fairy forts can cause one to become cursed.
A dip on the N22 road in Ireland was repaired recently, but re-appeared mysteriously.
Danny Healy-Rae claimed the issues with the N22 were caused by “numerous fairy forts in the area” in an interview with the Irish Times.
He said “there was something in these places you shouldn’t touch” and that the road passed by a place that was full of fairy magic and folklore.
