Welcome to Blarney's Blog

Who is Blarney, you might ask?
I am Blarney Killarney from the grand clan of Killarney Leprechauns.

  photo_2.jpgA wee bit of Irish magic an' grand ol' fashioned Irish luck landed me in the Liverpool Public Library. Why might a leprechaun end up so far from Ireland? 'Tis a true tale that I tell. I was out for a stroll among the heather, when I happened along a couple of tourists. Now I have a little hobby of climbing into the backpacks of tourists because you never know what kind of interesting reading materials they might have, and I love to read. 'Twas so nice and warm inside the backpack that I found meself drifting off to sleep. Now, leprechauns do not sleep often, but when they gets their mind set to sleeping they can sleep for days. One minute I was reading snug in the tourist's backpack, and next thing I know I'm tucked away inside the pages of a book on a sale shelf inside a library lobby. To awake surrounded by books! What glorious fortune! 'Twas no small bit o' magic there. I no longer have to sneak into the backpacks of tourists. I have many lifetimes of reading materials here. I looked around for the best place to build my home, and noticed several nice young lassies above me, new friends, books from floor to ceiling-- what better place to call home?!

So that 'tis the tale of how I, Blarney Killarney, came to live at the Liverpool Public Library.

I'm a wee bit shy, so you will never see me, but you can write to me or visit my house located in the Children's Room of the Library.

Natique, ye guinea pig sounds grand, me loves that ye named 'im Cream! I do not have a wife or any kids yet. I come from the grand clan of Killarneys from County Killarney, Ireland. I has tons of cousins, brothers, n' sisters. I have a mammy 'n da. We leprechauns only live with our family 'til we turn fifty, then we are bachelors until we settle down and start our own families around our 200th birthday. I'm in my wanderin' n' explorin' age. I still visit me family for special occasions. I'm only 131, so I still have plenty o' time to settle down an' find me a wife.

Gary, ye asked if all leprechauns be Irish. 'Tis a touchy question to answ'r. Leprechauns are all descended from clans from the grand country of Ireland. Many leprechauns choose to make their homes in oth'r countries like me. Aft'r awhile, sometimes generations, a leprechaun's family will start a new clan in that country 'n they'll consider themselves both Irish 'n apart of their new country. I suppose if I stay here long enough me thinks I'll be Irish American. 


'Tis grand that ye wrote me so many lett'rs. Me life 'tis grand, I love readin' 'n making new friends, which 'tis why I loves livin' at the library. Me life 'tis never boring. I have lots o' friends, so much nature to explore 'n so many books n' lett'rs to read. 


P.S. I 'tis glad that ye likes me house.
