Irish euro coins all share the same design by Jarlath Hayes, that of the harp, a traditional symbol for Ireland since the Middle Ages, based on that of the Brian Boru harp, housed in Trinity College, Dublin. The same harp is used as on the official seals of the Taoiseach, and government ministers and the Seal of the President of Ireland. The coins' design also features the 12 stars of the EU, the year of issue and the Irish name for Ireland, "Éire", in a traditional Gaelic script.

The Harp And Celtic Harp Music Has Been An Important Emblem Of Irish Nationalism Since The 10Th Century. King Griffith Of Wales Employed Harpists In His Court At The End Of The 11Th Century. By The End Of The 12Th Century, Manuscript Illustrations Show Harps With More Advanced Designs. The Irish Were By Then Playing Harps With Brass, Or Bronze, Strings. Records From The 15Th Century Show That Both The Terms "Harp" And "Clarsach" Were In Use At About The Same Time And Seemed To Have Been A Distinction Between Gut-Strung European-Style Harps And Wire-Strung Gaelic Clarsachs Of Scotland And Ireland.
