For 10 years, leprechaun investigator John Murphy has run irelandseye.com, a camera trained on a remote area called the fairy ring which offers viewers the chance to capture a glimpse of the legendary little green creature.
Murphy, however, has never actually seen a leprechaun, and believes some web cam watchers might be making a sham out of the shamrock sightings.
He says, Weve had plenty of reports of people who saw a little green man drinking green beer. As if a real Irish person would do that! But its an enchanted land, so if you cant see a leprechaun there, where will you?
While the leprechaun has been Disney-fied, and a true one is only six inches tall, Murphy still encourages people to scour his site, and says the chances of having a true St. Paddys day sighting are greatly enhanced by several drinks.
