Celtic folklore. On this Halloween episode, I decided to look at the most famous ghost of them all - The Banshee, an omen of death which originates in Irish folklore. This episode looks at the possible origins of the myth, similar figures from other folklores, and tells a few stories, one about a young girl named Alice, and the other about a young girl named Maeveen.
