Paper Money of Ireland classifies this notes as a Tradesman Issue. Given the shortage of coinage at the time, many businesses issued their own notes although their main trade was not banking. Interesting to see that the name of the individual who issued this note is in scrolling text on the left side, a Christopher Galwey. He appears to have been the owner of the Mill. The embossed stamp for 3 pence suggests that stamp duty was paid to the Government by this issuer.
