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.
