Leprechauns who they really are l.jpg
Leprechauns: Who they really are!

  • Leprechauns’ jobs are to put the pot of gold under the rainbow that we see after rain showers.

  • Leprechauns wear red boots and caps.

  • Leprechauns love to make mischief.

  • A leprechaun is a tiny elf only found in Ireland.

  • If you find a leprechaun and pick him up he is sure to tell you where the pot of gold he has hidden is.


Quotes l.jpg

“Mischief’s what leprechauns do.”

“There’s a bit of magic to the finding, and a bit of luck, and a bit of imagination too. That gold’s waiting for just the right person.”

Slide8 l.jpg


Tales From Old Ireland: A collection of stories, greatly enhanced by the illustrations of Niamh Shakey. The collection of seven stories includes "The Children of Lir," one of the most well known and loved Irish folktales, "Fair, Brown, and Trembling," an Irish Cinderella story," and "The Twelve Wild Geese," a fairy tale about family love and loyalty. Some of the tales are unsettling, some are sad, some have satisfying conclusions; all have a depth missing in many modern retellings.

A Pot O’ Gold: Delightful collection of Irish folklore, legends, poems, recipes, songs, battle cries, limericks, riddles, nonsensical ballads, folk cures, advice from Oscar Wilde, and a bit of blarney. Enchantingly illustrated. (Chapter book)

O’ Sullivan Stew: The Irish village of Crookhaven is in for trouble after its residents offend the local witch. Hoping to set things right, Kate O'Sullivan only makes matters worse. Now Kate's only hope of saving her family and neighbors is her skill as a storyteller.

Viking Ships at Sunrise: When the magic tree house whirls Jack and Annie back to ancient Ireland, they visit a monastery filled with books of wonder. Will they escape the Viking raiders with their jeweled treasure?

Count Your Way Through Ireland: An advanced picture book that counts from one to ten describing the history, sports, and different facts about Ireland.
