I wouldn't be surprised if it were real, but just a bit of whimsy. Every now and than some goofy government proclamation will be made just to punch up a local legend or tradition.

How large is the area in question? If it's a small green space that was in no danger of development, or part of a larger protected wildlife habitat, I can see going along with the leprechaun gag to give the locals something to tell the tourists.

Never underestimate the resourcefulness of small towns with a tourist trade!
