The name comes from Gaelic words meaning lover, mistress or concubine and a term for a burial mound or burial ground. According to another variant, liaian shi can be translated as fairy lover or fairy mistress.

Dirg-do can be translated as "sucking red blood".

Creatures from folklore Ireland and the Isle of Man, which are found mainly in wells and springs. 

Usually she appears to some man in the image of a written beauty, invisible to everyone else. That's just not so sweet and friendly this golden-haired girl in a green dress when she lures lonely travelers to her voice. She bites through the neck of the poor devils who are tired of singing and drinks all the blood, killing her victim. 

Like other vampires, only garlic and silver are saved from her.
