A Word on Leprechauns
Stories of leprechauns have been interwoven into the folklore of Ireland for hundred of years. These mythological creatures are believed to live amongst the green clover of the Emerald Isle, busying themselves tending their hidden stashes of riches. Legend has it that their pots of gold can be found at the end of rainbows. These elfin fellows take the form of little men, dressed in buckled shoes, top hats and coats and they make as much mischief as time allows. They've remained elusive creatures over the years and although one has yet to be captured, tales of their exploits continue to be written.
