Up to 33% of Irish people believe Leprechauns exist, according to a poll carried out by Cooley Distillery.

The online survey comes ahead of the second annual National Leprechaun Hunt, in aid of Our Lady’s Children’s Hospital in Dublin, which takes place in Carlingford, Co. Louth on Sunday, March 27.
