Here at the park office we have recently received six unusual reports, all of which have people who visit the park on the hunt for the ever-elusive Irish Fairy known to some as a Leprechaun! From the six stories told to the park staff we might have to agree there may be something out in the park playing tricks on people. We only ask that if you happen to see anything suspicious to please share your experience with the staff, so we can get to the bottom of this! As you start on this adventure and retrace the steps of the individuals you will be free to decide if you believe a Leprechaun has taken up residence at Fort Stevenson State Park.
The third account of the Leprechaun came from Olive Roberts and Ginger Adams who were walking their dogs in mid-January. They described finding a shiny green coin laying on the side of the road near the Prairie Dog Town. This coin had a shamrock on one side and the words “Erin go Bragh” on the other side. They stated this was their first time visiting, so they brought the coin to the park office to see if this was something the park had been handing out as part of a prize. They refused to allow park staff see the coin as they felt it was far to valuable and did not want to lose it.
Once again, they too saw a rainbow ending near the coordinates. N 47 35.686 W 101.25.746
“Erin go Bragh” is a Gaelic phrase most often translated as “Ireland Forever” as an expression of support for the Emerald Isle. Erin go Bragh is the English translation of the phrase, with bragh, or brach, meaning until the end of time or, according to some translations, “until doomsday.”
