And yes, statistically, humans are taller than ever. It is attributed to better nutrition, believe it or not. As for weaklings, we might not toil
outside the way we used to, but we have awesome gyms.
You got abs? Lots of people do.
Who first came up with the term "Leprechaun" and when exactly this narrative was first told is hard one to pin down with facts, but essentially, the
believe is there was a strange race of people living on the Island of Ireland long ago called the (Tuatha de Danann)- who then after a few hundreds
of years had past with them living in Ireland, just packed up and vanished to be never heard from again.
Stories throughout the ages claimed the Tuatha went underground and are still there today in places Irish people call the "Sidhe" Other stories
claim they'd escaped to an Island (for fear of invading humans) and other stories claim they were aliens from another time or place not of this
Earth? Basically the Leprechaun allegedly seen by people in the past is the Tuatha reappearing again?
The funny thing about the Tuatha de Dannann is mainstream Irish historians do not rule it out this race of people existed in the past. There view is
definitely not paranormal or weird. The belief is the Tuatha were a race of ancient Greeks who came to Ireland by sea in the past, settled, and then
moved on again?
The Folklore and Myths about the Tuatha de Dannann that exist are describing paranormal events and happenings. Make from that what you wish.
The fact is and this is fact.
The Tuatha de Dannann are depicted in some of the oldest ancient manuscripts and books now held in the library in Dublin Ireland, to have been real
One been the manuscript of the 'The Annals of Four Masters' written in 1616 claims the Tuatha came here to Ireland in the year 1897BC
Other books describes a mystical race been forced to move from thier homes due to the barbaric nature of invading humans? Some claim the emergence of
Roman and Christanity lead the Tuatha to decide they no longer could live aboveground. How true any of these stories are is anyone's guess.
