There is a story told in Glasgow about St Patrick
When he stole away from Miolchu, the latter followed him and tried to take him back. Patrick dug a sod and immediately it was turned into gold. He handed the golden piece to Miolchu who returned home and left the gold on his table.
Miolchu said then that he would follow St Patrick again and take him back. Then the gold was turned into the sod again, so Miolchu had neither money nor Patrick.
