A Made for TV Movie by Hallmark, about two couples who are dealing with very different romantic strife and yet have a large amount of impact on the others' stories.

The first couple is a man from New York, employed by a developer company to look for land in Ireland to use for resorts, and Kathleen, the plucky and surprisingly not redheaded Irish woman he meets there.

The second couple is a leprechaun named Mickey and a trooping fairy named Jessica, whose newfound love for each other is challenged by long-running blood feuds between their species.

The fairies' side of the story is essentially a Lighter and Fluffier retelling of Romeo and Juliet.

Not as Light and Fluffy as it sounds, staying well clear of Tastes Like Diabetes territory.


Contains examples of:

  • Genre Savvy: Jentee, who has apparently read Romeo and Juliet, as he suggests to Mickey and Jessica that killing themselves would bring their families 'round.
  • Aw, Look -- They Really Do Love Each Other: Both sets of the fairy lovers' parents, at the end of the film.
  • Duel to the Death: Mickey and Grogran
  • Everybody Lives
  • Faking the Dead: Mickey and Jessica, as a last-ditch attempt to get their families to reconcile. It works, but only after they die for real. Then they get better.
  • Feuding Families (though rather expanded to Feuding Species): the Fairies and the Leprechauns.
  • Leprechaun: Averted to a degree: while leprechauns are stereotypically Irish, wear green coats, and can turn invisible, they are only about a foot tall, are represented by all major genders (or at least one gender plus Mary and the female dancers), and are far from the only mythical creatures living in Ireland.
  • Masquerade Ball: Three guesses as to where Mickey and Jessica meet, and the first two don't count.
  • Mighty Whitey: Lampshaded by Kathleen, who makes a snarky remark about how the American has come to save the Irish peasants from destruction. Jack insists this isn't the case.
  • Painting the Frost on Windows: It's what the fairies do.
  • Slobs Versus Snobs: The Leprechauns and the Fairies.
  • Star-Crossed Lovers: Again, Mickey and Jessica.
