Leprechaun Camera Exposes Shamrock Shams

BELFAST, Ireland (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – This St. Patrick’s Day (Mar. 17), a webcam in Belfast, Ireland, is making it easy – sort of – to spot a leprechaun.

For 10 years, leprechaun investigator John Murphy has run, 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, “We’ve 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 it’s an enchanted land, so if you can’t 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. Paddy’s day sighting are ‘greatly enhanced by several drinks.”
