I knew I could use British Pounds throughout the UK and Euro throughout the EU, but I wasn't sure about the whole Irish Pound thing. I was wondering why they chose to print their own instead of using the British Pound. Do Scotland and Wales print their own as well, or is it just an Irish thing? I will only be in Ireland this trip, so I guess it doesn't matter which Pound I get.Thank you, Corey and Michelle. Fortunately, I'll be able to use my credit card for the accommodations and probably at the grocery store and petrol stations as well, so maybe I won't need too many Pounds. Excess Euro won't be a problem because I'll leave it with my daughter - I'm sure the "starving college student" won't mind taking them off my hands. I was more worried about the Pounds.Excellent idea about donating them on the plane - and here I was donating Dollars on previous flights...silly me.
