    Whatever monies that were held in accounts were automatically converted to Euro at a rate of €1 = IR£0.787564.
    So, in theory, if the Euro currency was to cease to exist, we should convert back to IR£ at the same rate.

    Nothing will happen, apart from the collapse of the entire financial world and all will be lost. There will be nothing to covert it to.
