What profession does the leprechaun supposedly practice?

I've read that they are supposedly cobblers...that is, shoemakers.


Leprechauns are little old Irishmen who are shoemakers for the fairies. They usually stand about 2 feet tall. Treasure hunters can often track down a leprechaun by the sound of his shoemaker's hammer. The legend is that if you catch one you can force him to tell you where he hides his gold.

they are belly dancers, paticularily they like dress up in many beautiful outifts made completely out of coconuts. so, if you see a especially small belly dancer, it is most likely a lerprechaun.
