Meet Ireland's last leprechaun whisperer

Recommended Posts

Still Waters

IRELAND’S LAST living leprechaun whisperer says the mythical Irish fairies are coping well with lockdown and “don’t have a problem” with the restrictions in place. 

Kevin Woods from Carlingford in Co Louth, is a prominent leprechaun advocate and activist with a history of campaigning for leprechaun rights. 

In the past, he has successfully lobbied for the mythical Irish fairies to receive EU protection. 

He also happens to run a tour business named Last Leprechauns Of Ireland, and considers himself an authority and "custodian" of the iconic Irish sprites.  

With Ireland caught up in the current coronavirus global health crisis, Woods sought to reassure the public that Ireland’s leprechauns are doing just fine, during an appearance on ITV’s This Morning.

"I'm really the custodian of them and their lives and I've been doing that since I got them a protected species. Leprechauns are spirits, they manifest themselves to me as leprechauns. I visit them each day, I haven't broken the restrictions."

I see... So, he got them registered as a "protected species", meanwhile, they are magical spirits who can manifest themselves in the little lep form. Now, why is it they need protection? If I could wisp in and out and operate as a spirit, odds are, I wouldn't need anyone to protect me. I'm sure this guy had quite a racket going on and then the virus hit and people weren't ponying up the cash anymore. Hence coming out of the woodwork (so to speak) and telling us he has access to the gold, but that's not what it's about. LOL! The saddest part is, he probably have gullible people sending him truckloads of cash before the pandemic.If he were in the US, he could probably get stimulus checks for all the little guys. Come on! If criminals can burn down buildings, riot and steal and get a check in the mail on top of it, then why not?

Leprechauns are a load of rubbish but children - while they are children - love them. This man operates a Leprechaun & Fairy Underground Cavern for kids. Similar to Santa's Grotto at Christmas and no doubt equally attractive to children. He advertises it as follows:

'Tour takes an hour and is indoors. Cost  €8 per child and includes a  model Leprechaun to take home. Adults accompanying children €4.00. Adults without children €8. Please Note: If your children are younger than 5 years old and do not have a child accompanying them that have lost at least one tooth then they are really too young to get any value out of this. If children are crying or disruptive parents may be asked to leave with them to allow other attendees to enjoy the whole experience Adults should enjoy it at any age!'

I am curious because as a kid i would dream about going and helping them. But I need a little more clarification on this insanity, like how do spirits that can manifest as leprechauns even die?

James M. Barrie said "Every time a child says 'I don't believe in fairies' there is a a little fairy somewhere that falls down dead." Guess it works for leprechauns too.

Genies come out of lamps. Leprechauns come out of whiskey bottles.

I've never seen a Leprechaun movie without somebody in it passing a pint around.

Why would any supernatural creature (pretending for the moment that they exist) care about human mandates and laws?
