Sorry, didn't read the entire thread, but red is traditionally the color of the Little Folk or indicating Magick in Ireland. See refernces to white animals with red ears, or red animals.

Women wore petticoats of red and allowed a little of them to show to keep the little folk at bay. The "attentinos" of the Wee Folk were not always desireable.
