You can leave a note like this from the elusive leprechaun and leave some St Patrick’s Day themed treats.
The note from the leprechaun says:
Miss me, Miss me – now you can’t kiss me
I’m sneaky and fast
Your trap didn’t last
I left you some sweets
and a few gold treats
I’m free & in the clear –
Better luck next year!
