Leprechauns are part of the Irish faerie folklore. They are smart devious little cobblers who love to play pranks on their human counterparts. Musical, fond of dance, song and drink, they are said to hide pots of gold in the Irish countryside.
Ériu, the patron goddess of Ireland. When humans first arrived in Ireland, three important sister goddesses all asked that the island be named after them. Ériu was given the honor, and therefore the ancient name of Ireland is Éire.
