  1. A woman in Doora, was out picking mushrooms at about four o'clock in the morning and she saw a leprechaun sitting on a rock mending shoes. She said the vestments he wore was a red coat and green pants. She told the neighbours about it. Many people saw the leprechauns as they were going to the horse-fair.
