Did you know that Leprechauns were shoemakers?


Leprechauns are a type of fairy in the Irish folklore.  They are usually shown as a little man with a green coat, hat and a belt with a big buckle.  As legend goes, these little mischief makers were shoemakers for the fairy folk. Along with being a shoemaker, they were also known for their pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.

According to legend, when you capture a leprechaun, he only has to be honest to you when you look him in the eye.  As soon as you take your eyes off of him he can trick you, lie, or even vanish, and there goes those wishes and his pot of gold!

sneaky leprechaun

If you are able to catch a leprechaun, you might consider yourself lucky or cursed. Leprechauns are not only shoemakers but are trouble makers, too!  They give you the chance for three wishes but be careful what you wish for.  It is said that these little guys are very smart and clever.

“One common story was of Seamus in County Mayo who wished to be the richest man on a tropical Ireland – but when his wish came true, he suddenly realized that there were no shops or pubs on the island to spend his money, or even people to talk with. Unfortunately Seamus became bored after a few hours on the Island and had to waste his third wish to return to Ireland. This could be how the phrase ‘luck of the Irish’ originated.”

At Hollowbrook Foot Specialist, our three wishes for you on St. Patrick’s Day are:

1. Great weather for all the people marching in the parade

2. Comfortable shoes for all the people standing or marching

3. We hope you find that pot of gold at the end of the rainbow!

Leprechauns Hope you find your pot of gold

Hope you find your pot of gold

If you had a very active day  – whether it was standing, marching or dancing – and your feet are hurting give our office in Wappingers Falls a call for an appointment (845) 298-9074
