The Dullahan - Ireland’s Headless Horsemanby Bridget Haggerty
*
It is said that after sunphối, on certain festivals and feast days, one of the most terrifying creatures in the spirit world, the Dullahan, can be seen riding a magnificent blaông chồng stallion across the country side.Wherever he stops, a mortal dies.Clad in flowing blachồng robes, the Dullahan has no head on his shoulders. He carries it with hlặng in his h&, and because he is endowed with supernatural sight, he will hold the head up high. This allows hyên ổn lớn see great distances, even on the darkest night.But beware watching hyên pass by. You’ll be punished by either having a bucket of blood thrown in your face or you might be struông chồng blind in one eye. The biggest fear of all, however, is if he stops wherever you are & calls out your name. This will draw out your soul & you’ll no longer be aao ước the living.Unlike the Banshee, which is known lớn warn of an imminent death in certain families, the Dullahan does not come to warn. He is a definite harbinger of someone’s demise & there exists no defence against hlặng - except perhaps, an object made of gold. For some reason, the Dullahan has an irrational fear of gold and even a tiny amount may be enough khổng lồ frighten hyên ổn off.

One story from Galway says that a man was on his way trang chủ when all of a sudden he heard the sound of horse’s hooves pounding along the road behind hyên ổn. In dread , he turned around to look. It was the Dullahan. He tried to run, but nothing can outrun the angel of death. Then the man remembered that if he couldn’t outrun hyên, he could outsmart hyên. With that, he dropped a gold coin on the road. There was a loud roar in the air, high above sầu hlặng, và when he turned khổng lồ look again, the Dullahan was gone.

While no-one knows for certain how the Dullahan originated, it is thought that he is the embodiment of the Celtic fertility god, Crom DuBảo Hành, who was worshiped by an ancient king of Irelvà, Tighermas. Each year, Tighermas sacrificed humans khổng lồ Crom Dubảo hành, and the usual method was decapitation. The worship of Crom Dubh ended in the sixth century, when Christianity came to lớn Irelvà and the old sacrificial traditions went out of favor. But Crom Dubảo hành was not to be so easily forgotten, for it’s said that he then took on a physical khung - the headless Dullahan - which means dark man - riding his mighty charger and using a human spine for a whip. And, while this is the way he is most often described, in some parts of Irelvà, he drives a blachồng coach drawn by a team of six black horses. They travel so fast that the friction from their hooves is said to phối the hedges on fire along the sides of the road. And, no matter how firmly they are locked, all gates fly open to let the Dullahan through.So, if you’re in Irel& this Hallowe’en season, be safe at home by sunphối, don’t look out your window, và definitely keep a gold object cthua at hand!See our other articles on Samhain and Halloween below:An Irish Hallowe"en - Part 1An Irish Hallowe"en - Part 2How the Irish Invented HalloweenA Triple Treat For Hallowe"enThe Churchyard BrideCreepy Irish Castles and HousesCreepy Irish CreaturesIrish GhostsSomething Wicked this way comes - Irish Ghosts by RegionProtect your property và yourself - Make a Parshell Cross for Hallowe"enThe DullahanSamhain - The Irish New YearThe Day after Samhain - All Souls Day

The Irishman who designedthe Osoto satuette

Ireland’s first và most lasting contribution lớn the Academy Awards is at the ceremony’s very heart: the Oscar statuette was designed by Dublin- born Cedric Gibbons, an art director with Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer, who also became Ireland’s first winner. Although his first Oscar (for art direction on The Bridge of San Luis Rey) was the only award he received individually, Gibbons was nominated for 38 Academy Awards & received 11 Oscars. By most yardsticks, this record makes Gibbons the most successful Irish Oscar winner in history.Source: The Irish TimesPhoto lớn Credit: Hollywood Confidential
