A few Irish Vampires that got lost in my drafts folder.

I’m so sorry Deamhan Fola, Dreach-Fhoula, and Dreach-Fhoula for overlooking you.

Deamhan Fola pronounced DJOW-agn FUL ah Diabhal Fola, Deamhain Fhola, Dearg-Due,
Deamhan fola is a term used in Ireland to name a vampire. It means “Blood Deamon”.

Dreach-Fhoula pronounced Droc Ola Dreach-Shoula, Droch-Fhoula
In ancient Ireland Dreach-Fhoula meaning tainted blood was a type of vampire fairy. In modern times it refers to a blood feud between families. A castel in Kerry County, Ireland is named DU’N Dreach-Fhoula, the place of tainted blood.
