Should we feel sorry for poor Patrick O Reilly as the adage never trust a Leprechaun rings true in this old story re-adapted by Steve Dunford.  Steve brings his wide knowledge of Irish mythology to this story, so much so, we begin to wonder whether this is indeed fact, not fiction.  One thing is certain whether we trust Leprechaun’s or not we certainly don’t want to offend them, just in case…

This story was adapted from an old local story, written and read by Steve Dunford and recorded on a beautiful day in Steve’s home overlooking the Killala coast.  The poem that opens the story is read by Jho Harris.   We are also delighted to have some of Steve’s illustrations on show on this section of the site and, if you haven’t already, you can visit Steve’s page in our featured Prose Writers section.
