Leprechaun



A mischevious little person of Irish folklore, Leprechauns are usually said to be about three foot tall and wear green clothing with stockings and a hat. They are also often said to have their own hidden stash of treasure.

In popular culture the sterotypical leprechaun is often portrayed with a strong Irish accent, a green outfit and an obsession with pots of gold and four leaved clovers.
