I've had my dollar bills turned down in the US

TARA Gannon, from Indiana, USA, complains (Letters, April 7) about Irish banks not accepting her $100 notes. She felt offended that her "foreign currency" was not welcomed here.

Before she has a go at us Irish for not accepting her $100 notes, I would suggest she take a much closer look at the problem. I have also had numerous issues trying to use similar US currency notes -- including $50 notes -- and guess what? Each time it was in the land where they are supposedly legal currency -- the United States.
