Irish banknotes are issued in £5, £10, £20, £50 and £100 denominations. The pound (£) is divided into 100 pence (p), and coins are issued in the following denominations: 100p (1 pound), 50p, 20p, 10p, 5p, 2p and 1p. In the south of Ireland the pound is called the 'punt'.
UPDATE: Since January 2002 the South of Ireland uses the Euro while the North is hanging on to the pound.
