Blarney's Blog

Welcome to Blarney's Blog

Who is Blarney, you might ask?
I am Blarney Killarney from the grand clan of Killarney Leprechauns.

  photo_2.jpgA wee bit of Irish magic an' grand ol' fashioned Irish luck landed me in the Liverpool Public Library. Why might a leprechaun end up so far from Ireland? 'Tis a true tale that I tell. I was out for a stroll among the heather, when I happened along a couple of tourists. Now I have a little hobby of climbing into the backpacks of tourists because you never know what kind of interesting reading materials they might have, and I love to read. 'Twas so nice and warm inside the backpack that I found meself drifting off to sleep. Now, leprechauns do not sleep often, but when they gets their mind set to sleeping they can sleep for days. One minute I was reading snug in the tourist's backpack, and next thing I know I'm tucked away inside the pages of a book on a sale shelf inside a library lobby. To awake surrounded by books! What glorious fortune! 'Twas no small bit o' magic there. I no longer have to sneak into the backpacks of tourists. I have many lifetimes of reading materials here. I looked around for the best place to build my home, and noticed several nice young lassies above me, new friends, books from floor to ceiling-- what better place to call home?!

So that 'tis the tale of how I, Blarney Killarney, came to live at the Liverpool Public Library.

I'm a wee bit shy, so you will never see me, but you can write to me or visit my house located in the Children's Room of the Library.

Team Variety Pack, 

Ever' day be grand. I am lovin' the fall, 'tis acorn season n' I love cookin' with acorns. People can't catch what they can't see, 'tis a good bit of luck, that is. Thanks for the great day wishes.

Cheers! Blarney

 How did you get so small? We wish we could fit into your little house. Do you ever make home visits?

Sincerely Team We (Wii)

Team We (Wii),

Sometimes I take a holiday to some o' me pal's houses. Ye willn't see me, but I will be aroun' ye hous' explorin'. 'Tis grand that ye likes me hous'.

Your Pal, Blarney

I 'ave a green pap'r crane in me hous' made by me friend Diane. She n' some youngin's made a lovely display of cranes ov'r the summ'r n' the library.
 
Thank ye for ye lett'rs, Jonathan. I sometimes comes out when ye visits me, but ye can't see me, I be invisible. 
 
Isabel, I be glad that ye has such a grand family. Family 'tis a wonderous thing. I 'ave grand family. I do not have a wife or any kids yet. I come from the grand clan of Killarneys from County Killarney, Ireland. I has tons of cousins, brothers, n' sisters. I have a mammy 'n da. We leprechauns only live with our family 'til we turn fifty, then we are bachelors until we settle down and start our own families around our 200th birthday. I'm in my wanderin' n' explorin' age. I still visit me family for special occasions. I'm only 131, so I still have plenty o' time to settle down an' find me a wife.
 
Nathan, 'tis grand that ye likes me hous', doors, n' me bed. 
 
Lily, I got both o' ye lovely emails.
 
Shane, 'tis not me choice to show meself, as I wrote befor': I am aroun' justinvisible. It 'tis leprechaun law that only our elders get the choice to show themselves to humans. We young'ns are invisible to all humans. Older ones of us sometimes choose to reveal themselves to humans, but rarely so as they loose bits o' their magic 'n don't live near as long as if they stay hidden. But I be here, ye just can't see me. 
 
Ashley, 'tis very lucky indeed that ye leprechaun left ye some gold coins. 'Tis rare that we leprechauns spare any o' our gold.
 
Audree, a pet 'tis a grand idea. But we leprechauns be friends o' nature n' lovers of all creatures n' don't keep pets like ye humans do, I 'ave many friends that I visit n' visit me that be animals. I did keep a snail once as a hous'mate n' Ireland. 'Twasn't a particularly chatty fellow, if I recall. I do not think I'll take on anoth'r hous'mate just yet.  I often take tea with the woodchuck that lives 'n the library's side yard. He's brillant but too large for me hous'. 
 
 
   

 

Jana, thank ye fo' ye lett'r. Boo Kitty n' Pooh Bear 'twere pals I made at the Stuff'd Animal Sleepov'r.  The rock 'tis a souvenir from tie-dye, 'tis a tie-dyed rock!

Annabella, thank ye fo' ye many lett'rs, ye be a grand pal!

Ben, I cleaned me workroom just for ye n' rearranged me kitchen! I hopes ye likes it.

Stephen, 'tis a grand drawin' ye sent me. I'm home lots, and I watched ye draw me picture the oth'r day. Stephen, I recently be tellin' Audree "A pet 'tis a grand idea. But we leprechauns be friends o' nature n' lovers of all creatures n' don't keep pets like ye humans do, I 'ave many friends that I visit n' visit me that be animals. I did keep a snail once as a hous'mate n' Ireland. 'Twasn't a particularly chatty fellow, if I recall. I do not think I'll take on anoth'r hous'mate just yet.  I often take tea with the woodchuck that lives 'n the library's side yard. He's brillant but too large for me hous'."   

David, 'tis grand to be loved! I came out n' tugged on ye shoelace whilst ye were here, but I be invisible, ye didn't see me.

Tea 'tis lov'ly, Hannah.

I'm glad ye likes me house, Lydia. I've been 'n New York since last April. 

Dominique n' Nadia, best wishes to ye Mum n' Da.

Makenzie, I hope ye had fun at ye aunt's, visitin' with family can be grand. 

Morgan, human cameras do not work on me n' Leprechaun Law forbids leprechauns o' me age from being seen by humans. Perhaps, me cousin Erin will draw me likeness. I will write to her n' ask her. But me portrait would be small. Me middle name be Darby, what be yours?

Hi to ye, Jonathan.
