    Cemeteries Ghosts Graveyards Spirits: The Dullahan is an Irish headless horseman and a harbinger of death. It bears its head in its hands and a whip that is actually the spine of a human corpse. It strikes down all those who, having been marked by Death, are to perish. To ward it off, carry a piece of gold.

The Bean-Nighe or "Washing Woman" is a type of Banshee who haunts the lonely streams of Ireland, washing the blood-stained garments of those about to die. It is said that these spirits are the ghosts of women who died in childbirth and that they are fated to perform their task until the day when they would have normally died.

The Banshee, from the Irish “bean sí” (“woman of the síde” or “woman of the fairy mounds”) is a female spirit in Irish folklore, usually seen as a harbinger of death, as well as a messenger from the Otherworld. In Irish legend, a banshee is a fairy woman who begins to wail if someone is about to die.
