The house that a billion euros built
By Stephanie Hegarty

BBC World Service

This is an unlikely consequence of the Irish economic crisis. Artist Frank Buckley decided to express his anger about the property boom and bust by building a house from more than a billion euros of decommissioned notes.

In the lobby of the Glass House, an empty office building that stands as a relic to Ireland's cataclysmic property bust, money is changing hands between an old woman and a 15-year-old girl.

"Go off there and get a couple of sweets for yourself," says the woman, as she hands over a block of €50,000 (£42,000) notes.

"I should have brought my handbag in here, I could have made a fortune," she jokes.

I'm surprised the mint was so willing to participate in the project.
