"Well I'm from Mobile, AL where this story comes from. This s**t was a joke made up by a few people in that area to see how far they could get the joke to go. They were going to stop but the s**t exploded like wild fire. The hood hyped up the story because they were able to charge people $1 to park in their hood to see this “Leprechaun”. One guy made between $150-200 in a 2-week span from this complete bulls**t. They got so much buzz going that the media came out to do a story on it. Two of the people in the news story are from that area and showed they a** on TV to increase the hype. The only sad people in this story are the media people who spent time covering this s**t. So lighten up people it was just a joke. If you noticed, no one spoke real serious about seeing the Leprechaun. They all said it with a joking smile. The funniest # in that story was the black guy saying he was a leprechaun hunter and the flute he had was passed down to him through his Irish heritage. I get so sick of people trying to make everything into a racial issue. There are hundreds of stories done every year in small hick towns in the Midwest about White people seeing aliens and everyone in that city plays along to increase the revenue in that area. That is all that happened here."

That made me really laugh, but I was left wondering - Leprechaun, or crackhead?
Plus that guy with the flute which was thousands of years old. I'm not sure, but I don't think there were Afro Caribbeans in Ireland millenia ago.
Geez, "Some people will do anything for a pot of gold."
The silly twits don't seem to realize that Leprechauns are found ONLY in Ireland. We don't have any leprechauns in the U.S.

These people believe they have a leprechaun living in a tree in their neighborhood.

I am not sure if I believe in them. However, something odd occurred in '89 when I first came back home to the UK. I was in the garden helping my dad attend the weeding. They had a massive back garden in the back of the house they rented.
Anyway, I was weeding under one of the conifers. I heard something rustling, but there was no wind that day. It was a cool summer and no breeze.
I carried on with my weeding. To my surprise I saw what appearred to be legs in reds boots and black-striped leotards. I just shirked it off and thought it was a bird, then I thought,' why would anybody put red boots and striped leotards on a bird?' I forgot to mention, when I spotted it-it hurried through the conifer and disappearred. No, I hadn't been drinking, nor was I on drugs.
