The Irish authorities have adopted the extremely non-English habit of
saying "30 euro and 5 cent" instead of the natural and correct "30 euros
and 5 cents", as if English were German. This style is required in
legislation, but there is no reason to use it in common life.
Michael is conducting a one-man crusade to bring this sociolinguistic
nightmare to an end, so far without success.
