Vinnie the leprechaun makes gleaming buckles for leprechaun shoes and shiny buttons for leprechaun jackets. He loves his job, and he has a happy life and many friends -- but, oh, how Vinnie longs to be rich!   

When he finds a lucky horseshoe, Vinnie sets out for Las Vegas to make his fortune. However, he soon finds that there is such a thing as too much good luck …

Stephen Walsh has a long association with leprechauns. He is the inventor of the emblematic leprechaun costume seen at many public events. He participated in a record breaking gathering of leprechauns which made the Guinness Book of Records in 2011, and he has run several marathons dressed as a leprechaun. His work with Connemara Marble has connected him to Ireland’s landscape, heritage and mythologies - of which leprechauns are a natural part.

In a life of many incarnations, Marita has been a child, scholar, student, teacher, civil servant, mother, and animal enthusiast.  She has an abiding interest in Ireland’s history, culture and folklore, is an inveterate scribbler, and likes to read late into the night.
