Every town has their heroes and legends. Missoula has quite a few memorable characters in our rich history. One of which is someone we hear about every Saint Patrick's day. Im talking the legend of Tommy the Leprechaun a.k.a Tommy Dorset.

As Corey G Lewis wrote in a post on Facebook

Tommy the Leprechaun was a legend in Montana. Street cat, made ends meet entertaining. Knew him from my hometown of Livingston and my years spent in Missoula. He finally received the respect he deserved and was the Grand Marshal in Butte and Missoula during their St. Patty's Day Parade.
