Tradition has it that leprechauns are mischievous little people, often
cobblers, with pots of gold hidden away. Humans are always keen to find
the gold, of course, but are outwitted by the leprechauns' cunning and
magical powers.
In all of the six tales, humans are taught a lesson by the little
people, whether as a result of overwhelming greed for the gold, picking
flowers where flowers are not supposed to be picked, or merely not
believing in leprechauns. They have even been known to help humans in
great need--when sufficiently pleased by a kind act.
There is something for everyone to enjoy in these stories, especially
the battle of wits between "them" and us. These tales have been
passed down from one generation to another, and have been a part of Irish
folklore for hundreds of years.
