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.

Emily I be glad that ye had so much fun at the library. I'm grand today 'n every day that brings me such grand friends like you. Cheers!

"How old are you, Blarney?"

I be of the young leprechaun age of 131, and most o' me people live to 'round 500 years. Those that be showing himself and herself to humans lose bits o' their magic and don't live near as long as the rest of us, 'twich be why ye won't see me. Smart leprechauns stay invisible to humans their entire lives.

Alaina & Ryan, ‘tis nice to be loved, thank ye.

Hugs to ye too, Jenna!

'Twas a good decision I made building me house in the Liverpool Public Library, with so many nice young'ns writing me letters n' drawing me pictures! In me country 'tis customary to welcome others into the home, so céad míle fáilte to you all!
