One of the most famous creations of Irish folklore are the leprechauns. These “little people” are solitary creatures, avoiding contact with mortals and other leprechauns. The leprechaun pours all of his passion into the concentration of carefully making shoes. A leprechaun can always be found with a shoe in one hand and a hammer in the other.

Leprechauns guard the fairies’ treasures against being stolen by mortals. Although they hide the treasures well, the presence of a rainbow alerts mortals to the whereabouts of horded gold. Female leprechauns do not exist.
