Suggest you read it again. Sounds like something the author made up, so he/she's the best source. Never heard of such a language

oh Faerie isn't the language. :oops:

Faerie is the place, you know where faeries live. I know one is Magh Ablach, the Plain of the Apple Trees.

The mythical place where the faeries are. They say the oly way to get there is to enter through a sidhee mound. People also say a sidhee mound is in Tara.

You are talking about a book of fiction that few, if any, of us have read. If actual Irish words were used in the book, you have to help us out and tell us what they are so we can translate them. Otherwise, no one knows what you are talking about. :nixweiss:

"Sidhee" isn't an Irish word. You may be thinking of "sidhe," which is an old way of writing what is in Modern Irish "sí" (pronounced "shee")...a fairy mound ("faerie" is a fanciful spelling favored by fantasy writers. The standard form is "fairy")

I've never heard of a fairy mound at Tara. Tara was the seat of the Irish high kings.

You might want to be aware that fairies aren't lovely, cute, nice people in Irish mythology. Actually, most of them are rather nasty.
