It may not be an actual licence to print money, but one Galway-based firm is banking on the astonishing popularity across Europe of the 'zero-euro' note.
The zero-euro is an souvenir banknote authorised by the European Central Bank and printed by Oberthur, a facility in France that also prints the real euro banknotes.
Like a traditional banknote, it has a watermark, holographic protection and tactile marks that are visible under UV-light. As well as looking and feeling like the real thing, it can be personalised with a picture of any visitor attraction, event or building. Euro Note Souvenir owns the exclusive Irish licence for the zero-euro banknote and is currently in the throes of rolling out a service whereby visitor attractions here can purchase banknotes with their own attraction or motif displayed, and market them to their visitors on-site via an ATM-like machine, or online.
