How do you pronounce unseleighe?
What are the Seleighe and Unseleighe court referred to in Celtic myth?
Sidhe is a Gaelic word which means hill which is used incorrectly to refer to faeries because they are reputed to live in hills (or burial mounds). The Seleighe and Unseleighe courts, sometimes spelt Seelie and Unseelie, are groups of trouping faeries. Seelie basically means "blessed" amd Unseelie "unblessed". The Seelie court are beautiful and basically considered good. The Unseelie are basically evil and are supposed to ride across the sky during during or preceeding storms.
