Tak­ing note

The Irish Times - - Comment & Letters -

Sir, – I brought my two daugh­ters to see Hamil­ton in the Vic­to­ria Palace The­atre in Lon­don. It was mes­meris­ing. Not so mes­meris­ing was when I went to buy some ice-creams at the break. The ice-cream seller re­fused to take my North­ern Ire­land £10 note, de­spite it be­ing le­gal cur­rency in the UK. Given the sub­ject mat­ter of the mu­si­cal and the fact that a North­ern Ire­land po­lit­i­cal party is prop­ping up the UK gov­ern­ment, it seems per­verse that my £10 note was not ac­cept­able. I know what Alexan­der Hamil­ton would have done – but then the no read­mit­tance pol­icy would then have come into play. – Yours, etc,

Sir, – I read that North­ern Ire­land is to get new poly­mer ban­knotes (Busi­ness, Novem­ber 6th). What? More plas­tic? – Yours, etc,

PETER LYNCH, Knock­lyon, Dublin 16.
