This bank was around for only a few years, and went bust around 1839.

The bank produced two designs of notes. The £5 note you posted is of the earlier design.

The Agricultural and Commercial Bank of Ireland section on Irishpapermoney.com has been upgraded with the addition of many new examples of the bank’s notes.

Over the past few years, a lot of banknotes from the Agricultural and Commercial Bank have turned up in auctions and other sales, images of many of them have now been added to the website.

There are three types of note issues known, covering £1, 30 Shillings, 35 Shillings, £3, £5 denominations.
Also added to the website is a section on Agricultural and Commercial Bank of Ireland Branches 1835-1839, with an image where available of a banknote from every branch of the bank. Hopefully, this gallery will grow over time, as more notes turn up.

Super new section there. It gathers all of the notes that have turned up in the last decade.

Yes, I have been gathering pics of the Agrucultural & Commercial notes for a good few years.
Some of these pics pre-date the internet!
Denominations other than £1 are very scarce.
Examples from a good few of the branches remain to be added. Not sure how many have been seen though, or if a note has survived from each of the branches.
Lots to be done there yet.

Agricultural and Commercial Bank of Ireland, 30 Shillings Parsonstown branch.

Image added to the listing of Agricultural and Commercial Bank's branches. Parsonstown had had its name changed from Birr in 1620. In 1899 the name was changed back to Birr. It is a large prosperous town in the middle of Ireland.

Can't be too often that one of these turns up which hasn't been seen before! Most of them seem to be Enniscorthy.
