Coins with Éire on them are from the Republic of Ireland. If they are Euro coins, they can be used in any country that uses the Euro as its currency. If it is from before 2002 they are no longer in use, as the Euro started being used on Janary 1st 2002.I Many Irish people would have kept some of the old coins and notes, so they are far from being a rare item and of any real value as a collector's item.
