Rate this mythological creature: The Leprechaun?




a type of fairy in Irish folklore. They are usually depicted as little bearded men, wearing a coat and hat, who partake in mischief. They are solitary creatures who spend their time making and mending shoes and have a hidden pot of gold at the end of the rainbow. If captured by a human, they often grant three wishes in exchange for their freedom. Like other Irish fairies, leprechauns may be derived from the Tuatha Dé Danann. Leprechaun-like creatures rarely appear in Irish mythology and only became prominent in later folklore.

Modern depictions of leprechauns are largely based on derogatory 19th century caricatures and stereotypes of the Iris

  • The real tale's of these wee folk aren't so pretty though. They are really evil and nasty little spirit's. But I love the them/concept. Think of the Horror film adaptations, but 12x's way worse! Running into one is in no way LUCKY, esp trying to take his gold would be your last sighting ever😯 that's all I'm saying lol.
