    Background: The Irish are a romantic race: they believe in fairies. So much so that when a new bridge was built at Castlerea, County Roscommon and road widening was scheduled, their feelings for the fairy folk soon presented a problem for the engineers. In the path of the proposed road-widening stood a tree -- to many people, perhaps, an ordinary tree. But to the people of Castlerea, this was a fairy tree, and the little people, they said, would be angry if their 'home' was uprooted for some trivial reason like the widening of a road. So the people of Castlerea objected - strongly to the removal of the tree. And their objections were so strong that the workmen stopped operations. And at the moment, the tree stays while cold logic fights against romanticism. But there's a strong feeling that the fairies will win in the end!
