One date is known for Bank of Ireland £100 notes with the McGowan signature, namely, 1st March 2005. Specimen and standard issue notes are known and illustrated. Curiously, no replacement notes have been observed.

The McGowan £100 notes are the most recent £100 notes issued by Bank of Ireland and likely to be the last paper issue of this denomination. Should £100 notes be issued in future, they are likely to be polymer notes.

Here is an example of the last date of issue for the Queen’s University Series, a 22nd February 2007 £20 note. A nice feature is that this is also a number 1 note.

In 2008, Bank of Ireland introduced a new series of notes to mark the 400th anniversary of the granting of a license to distil whiskey to the area around Bushmills in 1608. The reverse of the £5, £10 & £20 notes now feature the Bushmills Distillery and all notes are dated, 20th April 2008. The first prefix is BD (for Bushmills Distillery) even though this was used on the previous series.

The £5 note bears the signature of David McGowan, Chief Executive U.K.

Standard issue, replacement and specimen notes are available to collectors. Examples of the standard issue and replacement £5 notes are attached.
