Facts About Leprechauns for St. Patty's Day

Irish mythology is filled with fairy folk, and the leprechaun is one of the many little peoples of the far in Irish folklore.

Leprechauns are shoemakers by trade, but full of mischief and pockets full of gold coins.

Irish mythology has it that if you capture a leprechaun, you can earn three wishes if you agree to free the little fairy.

Leprechaun pictures usually depict these wee folk wearing tall top hats with a buckle, knee-length knickers and long beards.

In terms of classification in mythology, this wee one is most like the trickster, not entirely good nor bad, but always full of fun.

It is said that these fairy folk have a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. They are the descendants of the mound-dwellers or Tuatha Dé Danann of Ireland.
