"Faith I have you now," says he. "And I'll never let you go till I get your purse, that's what I won't. So give it here to me at once now. '"Stop, stop!" cries the leprechaun. "Stop till I get it for you!"
"So my grandfather, like a fool you see, opened his hand a bit and the little fellow jumped away laughing. And he never saw him anymore, and never a bit of the purse did he get, only the leprechaun left his little shoe that he was making, and my grandfather was mad enough angry with himself for letting him go, but he had the shoe all his life. And my own mother told me she often saw it, and had it in her hand, and 'twas the prettiest little shoe she ever saw.'" Source
A leprechaun is a clever influencer and pretty much never gives up the gold.
