Hidden Camera Will Catch Leprechaun
Location of Leprechaun Cam in Ireland
Thursday, March 11, 2010 17:19 GMTBELFAST, Ireland (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) If a real leprechaun is ever spotted, itll be caught by a hidden camera in Belfast, Ireland.
For more than 10 years, leprechaun researcher John Murphy has been running a webcam on irelandseye.com thats set up in a remote farmland known as the fairy ring.
The area is said to be enchanted, the perfect place for a leprechaun to live.
Though the camera has yet to catch a clear image of a little man in green, Murphy is sure it will someday.
He thinks the leprechaun will be a two-foot-tall man wearing rustic clothes, though he isnt sure about the top hat.
Murphy says alleged webcam sightings spike around St. Patricks Day (Mar. 17) probably because the booze is flowing.
Hes seen more interest in leprechauns since the recession and figures everyone is after that elusive pot of gold. He calls dibs on it, though.
