Proof that there are leprechauns in Ireland

Some funny pictures from my dad’s visit to Ireland. Also, irrefutable proof that there are indeed leprechauns in Ireland.

Longman Dictionary:  leprechaun = an imaginary creature in the form of a little old man, in old Irish stories.

Wikipedia: A leprechaun (Irish: leipreachán) is a type of fairy in Irish folklore, usually taking the form of an old man, clad in a red or green coat, who enjoys partaking in mischief. Like other fairy creatures, leprechauns have been linked to the Tuatha Dé Danann of Irish mythology. Popular depiction shows them as being no taller than a small child. (


This is the populair depiction of a leprechaun and here is my proof:


That footprint is way too small to be human! Must be a leprechaun!!!!


This building is supposed to be ancient and ancient people (especially in Ireland) weren’t that tall and therefore didn’t need houses this big, so either that building is younger than it seems to be, or I’ve just taken a picture of a leprechaun standing next to a normal sized house ;-) .


See? More proof! I’ve captured that same leprechaun on yet another picture! That rock can’t possibly be that big, so it must be a leprechaun standing next to a pebble!


And here I saw him again in Wicklow!


Here he was trying to hide from me! Wikipedia said that they liked partaking in mischief, but they didn’t say they were so bad at playing hide and seek!

So there’s my proof that leprechauns really do exist! I can guarantee that none of these pictures were photoshopped or fabricated. Everything you see is real. You don’t want to believe me? That’s your choice. I am convinced that there was a leprechaun in Ireland, and he was there between St. Patrick’s Day and 22 March 2010. And I had a lot of fun taking pictures of him to prove that leprechauns exist!

(This is just a teaser, the rest of the pictures of our cliff walk, Glendalough, the Cliffs of Moher, and the many other things we’ve seen on our trip will come soon.)
