Every tiny leprechaun had a huge pot of gold hidden somewhere. with all his might. Quietly, Liam crept through the grass, reached out his large hands Got you! cried Liam as he squeezed the leprechaun Oooof! cried the leprechaun. Let me go, you big bully! Tell me where your gold is and I will! said Liam. Put me down and I promise I ll show you where my gold is hidden. A broad grin spread across Liam s face as he lowered the leprechaun back down on the grass. The leprechaun told Liam, My gold is buried under here in the middle of the field. And he pointed at a clump of dandelions. You ll need a spade as you need to dig quite a way down! But I don t have a spade with me, he grumbled. What shall I do?

But when Liam O Leary reached the gate, he stopped, dropped his spade and scratched his head. Oh my!! All over the field, thousands of red silk handkerchiefs were tied onto clumps of dandelions.
