Is there anything happening on the Emerald Isle for the 100th anniversary of the Limerick Soviet?
Or will Ireland be its usual minimalist self where historical events are concerned.

A number of events are scheduled this week to celebrate the 100th Anniversary of The Limerick Soviet. I came across this interesting link which shows a slightly different design for a Limerick Soviet 10 Shillings note.

Interesting, the signatures are correct. Casey has signed himself as James M Casey, his non-standard signature, which we have seen on various non-issued instances of the notes.

I wonder if this is an early proof note ? Perhaps the note was redesigned to make it clear that The Workers of Limerick were Against British Militarism. In the image above, Against is isolated in the top panel.

Yes, 'against' is a little lost up there.

There may well have been other design proofs also.
As we have learned more about the issue, a greater variety of notes have been turning up.

Hopefully other interesting items turn up as people check their heirlooms during centenary year. In the meantime, here is a link providing details about an interesting new commemorative currency issue. An example of the new 10 shillings note is attached.
