A note from the author. There are several ways to study the culture of a nation, such as through historical records or documents.
However, literature can also provide interesting information about culture. Myths, fairytales and folklores may have the hidden realities of the culture being explored. Leprechauns are the most well-known elves of Ireland. They are considered by many people as one symbol of the country. This story of Leprechauns which I wrote will tell you the reason why Leprechauns are solitary and how Leprechauns think of humans. The context in this story is in the 9 th century when the first group of Vikings attacked Ireland.
In the Droppin Bombs - Various - 2Q: Tools For The Third Deck Vol.1, you will notice that Leprechauns get involved with many immortal beings, mortal beings and also some magical plants.

And it is the duty of Heimdall, the Norse god of light and dawn who has to be a guardian of Bifrost. From the myths, Leprechauns seemed to hate the rainbow since it will show where the gold is. Anyway, rainbow is the other important symbol in myths. The Story of Leprechauns. Chapter 1: The Vikings of the North Sea.
