That was interesting read, thank you,

At work today (this does have a point) I was trying to explain to someone that you had two currencies in Ireland, the EURO and the sterling...they thought it was all Euro, I was like nope, I needed two currencies, and you still do.

We used only EURO and drove over 1000 KM in the West of Ireland. We had no problems at all, I have heard that in Londonderry you have to have two.

It's just the way I said it. I was meaning in Republic of Ireland its euros and Northern Ireland sterling, they classed the whole of Ireland as the same which was very naive!
