Fiona’s Luck is an original folktale about a greedy Leprechaun King who has taken all the good luck throughout Ireland and locked it away in a chest. Without luck, the people of Ireland have fallen into misfortune as chickens are unable to lay eggs, potatoes cannot grow, and cows cannot produce milk. Cunning Fiona has devised a plan to outsmart the Leprechaun King and get the good luck back for the people of Ireland.
