Beware the Beansidhe!

The Beansidhe (usually written in English as Banshee) is the Celtic faery spirit whose keening wail announces an impending death. Her lament is usually heard at night. The beansidhe can appear as an ugly hag or as a beautiful woman. To hear the shriek of the Beansidhe or see her is quite scary indeed. An unearthly light radiates from her pale blue skin, green hair and ragged garments.
