    The Truth About Leprechauns

    To some, he is an impish figure full of harmless mischief, forever guarding his elusive crock of gold.

    To others, he is an evil gnome bent on disrupting the lives of mortals with his black magic and malevolent acts.

    Historian and folklorist Bob Curran looks at the origins of this hero of Irish lore - fallen angel, diminished god or son of fairies - and at his habits, occupations and characteristics.

    He explore the superstitions surrounding the leprechaun and his enduring place in popular culture, and turns the spotlight on the 'real' leprechaun - mysterious, complex, and contradictory.
