What are leprechauns?

Updated on February 27, 2015

I thought they are good...

What are leprechauns?

Any idea? It's an Irish elf. I always thought they were good creatures... No, there are very mischievous indeed. The pranksters of Irish. You would expect them to be wearing a green coat and green hat and to be of a size of a child. They are shoe makers and have a pot of gold hidden somewhere.

They are a big part of Irish folklore, and I love them! It's especially fun to be dressed as a leprechaun on St Patrick's Day!

Here you will find a collection of best Irish costumes, top internet links with leprechaun info. If you want to be dressed as leprechaun for some occasion, you'll find the best costumes and accessories. Do you want to laugh? I have a leprechaun dancing river dance. As well learn how to draw the!

The Legend of the Leprechaun By Sheri Amon

Oh, the leprechaun, a mysterious fellow,

An Irish fairy he be.

An unfriendly sort who keeps to himself,

A miserly fellow is he.

Making shoes for his living, not a bit does he spend,

Instead stores it all in a pot.

At the end of the rainbow his hiding place is,

And to find it will bring you good luck.

If you happen to hear a shoemaker's hammer,

tis the sound that a leprechaun makes.

Find him and corner him,

he'll tell you his secret,

If a stare you can maintain.

Look not away for this fairy is

Looking for a costume?

St Patrick's day is very close. Do you need one? Why don't you celebrate St Patrick day with with a shamrock theme?

Riverdancin Leprechaun
