Eastern County Clare - Remains of the home of Biddy Early (born Bridget O’Connor in 1798) who was the most famous Witch of Ireland. One legend is that when Biddy was a young girl, she was babysitting a neighbor’s child when the Fairies came, took away the human baby and left a “changeling” in its place. The Fairy child grew very fond of Biddy so he gave her a magic “blue bottle” which gave her the power to see into the future and to cure all sorts of ills.
