Welcome to Blarney's Blog
Who is Blarney, you might ask?
I am Blarney Killarney from the grand clan of Killarney Leprechauns.
A 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?!
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.
Write to me:
Please place all letters in the mailbox located above my door
in the Children's Room at Liverpool Public Library.

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.
