Gardai in Limerick have warned that counterfeit notes are doing the rounds again.
A spokesperson said that an off-licence in County Limerick took in a €50 note from a young male.
“He purchased goods to the value of €11 and the change was handed out before the staff member checked the note and found it to be a dud note. She did attempt to stop the male from leaving but he ran off.
Every business should at least have the marker pen to establish whether it is a legitimate note or not before change is handed over to the customer,” they added.

Money Point does not recommend that business owners rely solely on counterfeit pens or ultraviolet lights as a means of protecting their business from counterfeit banknotes, as these devices can be easily fooled by good quality counterfeits.
