Hi all,

Could someone please confirm if quid is used even for euros in Ireland or if it was used only for pounds?

    Thank you both so much for your replies and the links. Interesting. We've also kept part of the old slang for pesetas and now use it for euro.

    Hi Xiroi

    I can confirm that the use of the term "quid" has continued in the Republic of Ireland since the changeover to the euro. It's interesting to hear that the old colloquial terms are still also used in Spain.

    Thank you for your confirmation Dub boi. I suppose most languages must have kept many of the old terms for the new currency. Easier than creating new ones.
