Today we are continuing with Newstalk's 20 x 20 topic, where we reflect upon the 20 most influential moments of the last 20 years.

Here on Lunchtime live we are looking back upon the introduction of the Euro in Ireland in 2002; how it affected business and our economy across the board.

Andrea was joined by Tony Morgan, Shop keeper in Clones who, between the years of 2012 and 2017, accepted the Irish punt in his store, in an effort to bring money back into the community, giving the change back in Clones town vouchers which could be spent in other businesses in the locality.
