Re: Leprechauns, Fairies and other little people

Leprechauns, fairies etc, no one has ever presented a good argument for why they could not exist. Oh, go on then... Although I can't help but feel I'm having my chain yanked. :wink: It's not that I don't think they could exist, it's just that I haven't seen anything to convince me that they actuall...

Re: Leprechauns, Fairies and other little people

My mother-in-law (from Waterford) absolutely believes in all these things. Sometimes she almost convinces me too... I look at it this way, when the first reports about gorillas reached civillisation most people denied such a creature could exist. It has taken a long time for giant squids to be take...

Re: Leprechauns, Fairies and other little people

My grandfather wouldn't allow anyone near one especially in the dark because you wouldn't come back alive unless you were dead first. But there was far equally other dangerous things to be found at night. My father remembers his Uncle Pats calling one night about 1924 to have a drink with my grandfa...

Re: Leprechauns, Fairies and other little people

Look up the term "otherkin" and you'll find people who believe themselves to be decended from various mythological creatures. Most of them are full of it, but some do have actual physical abnormalities that make you wonder. Pointed ears, extra bones, that sort of thing. I have a friend who swears t...

Re: Leprechauns, Fairies and other little people

I've never seen them, but I believe in them (hence the username!). Or maybe it was too much Enid Blyton growing up... Me too. There was also another incident in my father's village. A farmer called Rumley had a 'fairy fort' on his land. This was an iron or bronze age circular fort made of clay and ...

Re: Leprechauns, Fairies and other little people

Just a liitle over a few hundred years ago the local people decided to build a graveyard near the church for burying the dead people in. They built a stone wall around it. The next morning all the wall had been moved up to the top of a hill. So they moved it down again but the same thing happened an...
