Irish banknotes ca1693-1754

Early Private Banks, up to 1754. An age of merchant bankers

Before 1754 anyone could engage in banking activity, regardless of their other business activities. Two general kinds of banking emerged, based around merchant economic activity and based on the remittance of rent to landlords.

Dublin and Cork emerged as early centres of banking, with the first banking businesses being established in the two cities.

Very few examples of banknotes issued prior to 1754 have been seen.
