    The leprechaun is Ireland's national fairy. He stands less than 3 feet tall, is dressed all in green, and wears a pointy, feathered cap atop his head. Legend states that if you are lucky enough to find a leprechaun, you must be careful not to let him out of your sight until he tells you where the pot of gold is. You had better be on your toes, though, because leprechauns are known to be cunning and quick. In the blink of an eye, he will disappear taking your hopes for good fortune with him.
