It had been forty years since Richard, James and Theodore insulted The O'Monahan and he put a vexing blessing on them. All three have obtained their dreams of grandeur, but they all live in a single house as bachelors. Into this grand house comes 7 year old Sheila with a request that these three become her guardians. But they do not want her and let her leave until they find that they need the property that Sheila has inherited. They then take her, and O'Davern, into the house with the expressed intention of relieving Sheila of her property so that they can donate it to the University in their name and buy remembrance in the future. But Sheila cannot sell the property because of the 'little people'. Written by

Deforestation is beneficial to the Fay because it means barista jobs aplenty.
And while the fairy-tree in this fantasy isn't becoming a Starbucks, it's about to be uprooted.
Determined to leave a legacy that'll allude to their generosity, three misers (Lionel Barrymore, Edward Arnold, Lewis Stone) donate land to the university.
But their vanity project is put on hold when they learn the property actually belongs to an Irish orphan (Margaret O'Brien) whose grandmother all three had courted.
But the waif is unwilling to sell on account a tree on the parcel is refuge to the wee-folk.
Despite its unfortunate casting of little people as the forest imps, this 1946 adaptation of the stage-play does capture the enchantment of Irish folklore, and the transformative effects it has on the disillusioned.
However, if we saved every tree based on fairy tales all we'd have to show for it would be stupid oxygen.
