A Leprechaun is a type of fairy in Irish Folklore.

Like other fairy creatures, leprechauns have been linked to the Tuatha Dé Danann of Irish mythology. But the leprechauns are far more ancient than the fabled Tuatha. In fact, they might just have been the very first people ever in Ireland (9000 BC). They were in fact Capoids from Morocco, who were very short people. They probably came to Ireland for gold prospecting, as well as hunting and gathering; in those days in Ireland, you could walk three feet in any direction and stub your toe on a big piece of gold! They probably came to Ireland via Scotland, where they are called the Brownies. Pygmies from Africa went to Germany via Sicily 80,000 years ago, where they no doubt had dustups with Neanderthal man. When they intermarried with Capoids (and probably Neanderthals), they became much lighter, and are probably the basis for the famous Elves and Dwarves!
