76 per cent of Irish people believe it's time to get rid of one and two-cent Euro coins.

A new Eurobar survey shows that Irish dissatisfaction with these particular coins is the second highest in the EU just after Finland.

Ireland, at 86 per cent, also has the highest share of people who think the Euro currency has made travelling easier and less costly. 

Jonathan Claridge of the EU Commission office in Dublin says one and two-cent coins are proving to be unpopular in this country.
