    Evil, racist, genocidal murderers in the night, or patriotic heroes
    defending their homeland, depending on your POV...

    Actually, I remember hearing that the 'd' was silent, so I've always said
    something like "Galley Sea", like this ship and the water.

    Actually Sidhe is not. Sidh (no 'e', singular) refers to the fairy mound,
    not necessarily the inhabitants. Sidhe (pronounced in Gaelic as SHE-eh) is
    plural.

    Tuatha De Danann (TOO-ah day DANan) is the name of the the inhabitants.

    Waaaaay simplified, but I hope it answers your question.

    Funk and Wagnalls Standard dictionary says that the word sidhe and sid' are
    pronounced shee (and is indicative as being the name for burrows/hills from
    which the race took their name they originally were the aes side or the
    fir side (and were indeed the descendants of the Tuatha De Danaan who were
    defeated by the Milesians)
