Legends about seeing the elusive Irish Leprechauns are hundreds of years old, but a more current example exists. In 1989, the late P.J. O’Hare, a pub owner (of course) in Carlingford, claimed to have seen evidence of one and displayed its clothing and bones in his establishment. The reason some believe that people no longer see leprechauns is that they are an endangered species. The European Union has actually declared the area around Carlingford to be protected Habitat. This interview with the Kevin Woods, last Leprechaun Whisperer in Ireland, further explains this story.
