image for Leprechauns not taken seriously says O' Driscoll
A newly harvested Leprechaun

A group of 1000 leprechauns will boycott the Six Nations Ireland/England rugby match on Saturday. The leprechauns who have to be painted green to remain visible, are said to be sick and tired of "fairy taleist" abuse from crowds at home and away sports matches. The Leprechauns who are invisible players normally on Irish sides are frequently accosted by crowds of foreign supporters demanding pots of gold, particularly when there is a rainbow which renders them visible.

A spokesperson for the Leprechaun Relations Board said that legislation is expected to be passed before next year's International rugby matches which will make it an offence to ask a Leprechauns for their gold, or to generally refer to their size or vivid green colour in a derogatory manner.

Dermot O' Driscoll, who manages a Leprechaun farm in County O'Tool said this morning, "The EU was supposed to act on this problem when we joined, but claim that because the delegation last year could not see them, their hands were tied. They seemed to have had no trouble seeing the pots of gold though."
