    1. Once upon a time there lived a Leipreachan. he lived under a mushroom, and was always making shoes at night. He used to be heard hammering at twelve o'clock, where fairies lived.
    So one night a man named Pat Burke was trying to find him. He found him at last, and would not let him go. "Mind the big dog that is behind you" said another little man that was beside him, but Pat would not let go, so he got a fortune from the Leipreachan, and he found ti under a big tree.
