Paddy Plastique BS: St Patrick`s Day Cards (18) RE: BS: St Patrick`s Day Cards 14 Mar 02


They may be all descendants of that horrible looking thing I've seen on Notre Dame merchandise -
a fists-raised leprachaun straight out of Punch. I always find it odd that an image drawn
up by London caricaturists with obvious anti-Irish leanings has become an Irish trademark in the US.
As to leprachauns over in Ireland - the damn photos never come back from the labs right..
Was it on here, by the way, I saw something about the origin of the word 'leprachaun' which, bizarrely
enough, is the same as the Irish for 'ashtray', I think Junior Crehan's nephew contributed
an anecdote that his uncle used to recount about it.
