According to the Irish fables the leprechaun is an Irish male fairy. He appears like a little, out of place guy who is about two feet tall frequently dressed in a shoemaker outfit. He can be an old man with old ways and a crooked hat dressed in a leather apron rather shabbily.
In accordance to the Irish fairy tales, the cute and funny leprechauns are distant and detached, residing on their own passing their time making and repairing footwear. But the legend of Ireland also states that the leprechauns can be very helpful in spite of being shy. They have hidden treasures which they give to generous and benevolent people. Many of them have a concealed pot of gold which they are guarding and try their best to hide them from pillagers, bandits and thieves.
