The summer tourists are certainly having an impact here - even where my parents live, far out in the countryside (in the NW of Ireland), they've had several Spanish, French and a few Dutch coins already!

Here in Dublin, I see quite a few German and the odd French banknotes and just yesterday got an Italian €5 in change from buying ice-cream :) Quite a few Spanish coins can be seen here now as Dublin gets many Spanish (and Italian) students over for the summer to learn English.
