The Central Bank of Ireland (Irish: Banc Ceannais na hÉireann) is Ireland’s central bank, and as such part of the European System of Central Banks (ESCB). It is the country’s financial services regulator for most categories of financial firms. It was the issuer of Irish pound banknotes and coinage until the introduction of the Euro currency, and now provides this service for the European Central Bank.
