Irish Leprechauns Legend
Legend of the Leprechaun's
Leprechauns, or little people, are Irish fairies about two feet tall. Leprechauns are dressed in green and are shoemakers. They can be found by following the sound of their hammering. They are believed to have hidden away a pot of gold. If you catch a Leprechaun, they have to lead you to their treasure. But, be wary, if you take their eye off of them they will get away.
Leprechauns are sly little elves. They will try to trick you into looking away so they can escape and not have to give you their treasure. They are also a bit of a loner, and rarely seen in groups. Seldom do you even see pairs of Leprechauns together.
While Leprechauns are small, they are big in Irish folklore. They have earned a special day all to themselves. See Leprechaun Day
