On the point of the four nations it does lead to some odd situations. Not least that Ireland has two international teams, Northern Ireland and Ireland while rugby and cricket are the whole of Ireland. Some northern players don't want to play for Northern Ireland and prefer the Republic. It's all a bit daft. Meanwhile the Captain of the England cricket team is Irish.

In the Olympics there's Team Great Britain including the three countries and the statelet that is NI, but it should be team UK because Northern Ireland is not part of Britain.

There are other oddities both Northern Ireland and Scottish banks issue their own banknotes. So alongside Bank of England notes there's at least five others Bank of Ireland, Bank of Scotland, Ulster Bank and most strangely Danske Bank. Bet that confuses tourists.

Then there's the Channel Islands and the Isle of Man. They are British but not part of the UK. They have their own money too!

All very odd.

Well, it's a well done to he good old U. S. of A!!!!! I only saw the frst 75 minutes coz I was on shift last night, but the USA was already winning 2-0 by then. They deserve it because they were the best team!!! I hate it when politics gets into sport, so I won't say anything of the teams political stance.

Yes Marie it is strange how at the olympics the UK goes in as GB, not withstanding they finished 2nd last time, not bad for it's size! I always thought that, for sure Ireland is part of the British Isles that is geographical, but it is not part of Great Britain in any way. In England down South, you almost never see the other currency notes, but I have seen all those you have listed and some shopkeepers, if young, either refuse them or get someone else to look at them.... I still use cash a lot, but it is fading away with the new age of plastic!!!

Anywya team USA won!!!!!

The team has a political stance?

That is unfortunate.
