The folklore of Ireland is filled with famous tales of this fairy shoemaker.

The Leprechaun is depicted as having a wizened face, gray beard, and twinkling eyes.

He wears a red jacket with silver buttons, brown breeches, black, silver-buckled shoes, and a high crowned green hat.

In pictures, he usually appears in an apron, holding a hammer and mending shoes.

This wee creature is tricky, and likes to make mischief with humans.

He also has a reputation for having a huge stash of gold hidden in a secret place.
