A small, rougish elf, often thought of as a cobbler, who possesses a huge buried treasure, although this treasure is popularly thought to be hidden at the end of a rainbow. If caught, a leprechaun can be made to tell his secrets and grant wishes, but if his captor stops looking at him, even for a split second, he will vanish. Leprechauns were said to guard the gold mines of County Wicklow, which, to this day, have not been found, and yet golden ornaments of ancient Irish design, and dating back to at least 1500 BC, have been discovered throughout Europe. Leprechauns are popularly referred to as Fairyfolk, or the 'wee people'.
