We should not expect to find any with ZZ prefix.
Less to collect there then.

Here are some nice scans of the issued Bank of Ireland £5 and £10 polymer notes. As sections of the notes are transparent, the appearance can vary depending on the colour of the background used for the scan (black for the attached examples).

In the new design, the Bank has dispensed with the line of heads at the top of the note, a feature present on Bank of Ireland notes stretching back to 1838. In a nod to tradition there is one head on the right side of the note. The Bank describes this head as ‘The Head of Medusa’ in the attached link :?
