Ireland Running out of Cash-will be out of 10 cent coins by Christmas Day
Ireland has been asked to send back all of it's coinage to the European Union. Starting with the ten cent coin- Ireland will be coin free by February 2011. A new Minister has been appointed by Taosieach Brian Cowen to ensure Ireland meets it's EU directive. Batt McGonigle a previously unknown backbencher last night became the minister for small change. Batt told Begorrah Begorrah "Tis a big ask but there is no better man than me to embrace change". On December 20th- 36 trucks will arrive from Brussels and collect all the ten cent coins in Ireland and take them back to Europe where they will be redistributed to the needy in Portugal.
