It’s not hard to find a Leprechaun in Northern Ireland

This quirky little film tells a tale about a tail, a monkeys’s tail which appears on orphan boy, Shamus, when he steals an evil leprechaun’s pot of gold. Shamus wanders woefully, tail in tow, around the streets of Belfast before stowing away on a ship to Liverpool where he is befriended by a wholesome English family who are enchanted by his quaint and lovable ways. This quirky, rarely-seen film by British director Eric Marquis provides a fascinating portrait of 1950s Belfast bustling with street vendors, dockers, children and chippers.
