Irish Folklore~~ Cluricauns

There is much debate about whether Cluricauns are simply leprechauns out on an all night bender after work or a more rambunctious, ill-tempered, nocturnal cousin. Cluricauns do resemble leprechauns, aside from a rosy, inebriated blush around the nose and the fact that they’re never seen in work clothes. They’re known to drunkenly entertain themselves by capturing farm animals or goats and race them in bogs or fields. Cluricauns can sometimes be found in wealthy men’s cellars , drinking wine and breaking bottles, but if they’re cut off from their alcohol supply, they’ll move on to pester someone else.
While it appears that the cluricaun has little saving grace, he is a lovable creature and is most important in Irish Folklore. One important fact worth noting. There are no female Cluricauns.
