Irish Leprechaun Stories Summary

Irish Leprechaun Stories by Bairbre McCarthy

An attractive new edition containing ten stories that feature the mischievous figure known as the leprechaun.
  • Eye-catching title at an impulse-purchase price point.
  • Perfect for the tourist market.
  • Author is a genuine full-time storyteller.

This collection contains ten stories which convey the sense of wonder of the world of fairies, where the marvellous and unexpected can always happen.
The leprechaun is the shoemaker of the Irish fairy kingdom. He is a solitary, fun-loving and very crafty fairy. Often he is seen sitting cross-legged with a tiny hammer in his hand, working on a fairy shoe. Those who have been lucky enough to catch a glimpse of him have described his appearance. He is no bigger than three feet tall and sometimes as small as twelve inches. Usually, he wears a suit of green and has fine leather shoes adorned with silver buckles. Sometimes he wears a cap with a feather. The leprechaun is the keeper of the crock of gold at the end of the rainbow and he knows where all the wealth of the world is buried. If you are lucky enough to catch him, you must keep your eyes on him at all times and not allow him to distract your attention or he will disappear. If he does not outsmart you he can make you very wealthy and make your wishes come true!
