Keep your eyes open on Slieve Foy Mountain, the home of the Leprechauns. 

Just over 20 years ago the suit and bones of a leprechaun were found on the Slieve Foy mountain by the late, well known businessman PJ O'Hare. He discovered them after hearing a faint crying and when he went to investigate, he was shocked to find the suit of a leprechaun, along with coins and bones.  This suit is still on view in PJ O Hares Pub.
