The Central Bank of Ireland commenced printing A Series banknotes itself on a phased basis from 1974, with all denominations being printed by the Authority by 1977. 1974 also saw the first usage of a marked Star Replacement note system for Irish notes. single letters were used on notes (£1 through to £20) printed by De La Rue, and a double 0 plus letter prefix (£1, £5) were used on banknotes printed by the Central Bank. £100 and £50 replacement notes continued to be unmarked. The 10 shilling note denomination had been discontinued with decimalisation.
