GLENCAR WATERFALL in lovely Leitrim, about 8 miles north of Sligo town.  William Butler Yeats immortalised this waterfall in his poem 'The Stolen Child'. The poem is based on Irish legend and concerns faeries beguiling a child to come away with them. Yeats had a great interest in Irish mythology about faeries, which resulted in his publication of 'Fairy and Folk Tales of the Irish Peasantry' in 1888 and 'Fairy Folk Tales of Ireland' in 1892.
