“If you slide down the rainbow”, the Leprechaun says to them, “and you shout out something on the way down, to be sure you will find it at the bottom”.
So, Michael jumps and slides down the rainbow, and as he is sliding down he shouts “gold”.
When he gets up, having reached the bottom of the rainbow, to his amazement he finds he has landed in a huge pot of gold.
Next, Seamus gives himself a push, slides down the rainbow, and shouts “silver” on his way down.
He too is surprised to find that he has landed in a huge pot of silver.
Finally it’s Paddy’s turn.
He takes a flying leap, slides down the rainbow at great speed, arms and legs going everywhere, and as he slides down he shouts out “wheeeeeee”!”
