Origin: Pagan Ireland
Example: If you catch a leprechaun he must grant three wishes to secure his release.
A leprechaun is a type of fairy in Irish folklore that usually looks like a tiny old man in a red or green coat. According to Irish legend were a magical race that fled underground when humans came to live in Ireland. Leprechauns are said to hoard buried treasure at the feet of rainbows and other hard-to-access places.
A similar creature is a Cluricaun, which has a reputation for mayhem the hours of darkness, raiding households for liquor and food, and riding around on farm animals. But some authorities say a Cluricaun is just a Leprechaun on a drinking spree.
