first_imgOn the eve of St Patrick’s Day a leprechaun has been found near the bell town beside Acres Church in Burtonport!The discovery was made earlier today by Burtonport native Pauline Sweeney Moulds who was in town to help out at the Honda Run in aid of the Donegal Branch of MS.Over thirty bikers took part in the run raising over €900 but none of the bikers reported seeing any leprechauns on the route around the Rosses or any miniature Honda 50s. Local snapper Brid Sweeney was on hand to photograph the normally elusive leprechaun but declined to say where it went afterwards.“He was there one minute and gone the next. It’s one of the most amazing photos I’ve ever captured,” she said!There is an annual leprechaun hunt on the railway walk in Burtonport every year for St Patrick’s weekend so it remains unclear if this one strayed from a hideout there!“Wow, I’m just home from Dublin to visit the family for a few days and never expected to find a leprechaun. We heard all about them when we were small but this is just amazing. Unfortunately he wouldn’t reveal where the pot of gold is but I always had an idea there were some wealthy bucks about the Port,” added Pauline!  LEPRECHAUN SPOTTED IN BURTONPORT! was last modified: March 16th, 2014 by StephenShare this:Click to share on Facebook (Opens in new window)Click to share on Twitter (Opens in new window)Click to share on LinkedIn (Opens in new window)Click to share on Reddit (Opens in new window)Click to share on Pocket (Opens in new window)Click to share on Telegram (Opens in new window)Click to share on WhatsApp (Opens in new window)Click to share on Skype (Opens in new window)Click to print (Opens in new window)last_img
