History of Irish Currency
Until 2002, the Irish pound was the official currency of Ireland. However, it was superseded by the euro in 1999, with circulation of the currency coming into effect at the beginning of 2002.
The exchange rate between Ireland and the European Currency Unit (along with 10 other EMC currencies) was fixed on 31st December 1998.
The next day, the virtual euro was introduced, but it wasn’t until 2002 that Irish banknotes and coins were replaced with the euro specie. As such, they ceased to be legal tender on the 9th February 2002. The euro has been the currency of Ireland ever since.
