Modern Irish Legal Tender Notes

Four Types, by Signature and Design. Five Denominations

The theme of C Series Legal Tender Notes is centred on the formation of modern Ireland in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. The notes were designed by the Irish artist Robert Ballagh, and the first of them, the £20 note, made its appearance in 1992. The last note to be introduced was the £100, in 1996.

The banknotes continued in circulation until Ireland joined the Eurozone in 2002, whereupon they were replaced by Euro notes.
