An unusual article in that rather than being about coins, it is about the absence of coins – specifically about an Irish chieftain, recorded as Aodh Mór Nach Glacadh Airgead (Aodh the Great Who Did Not Accept Money) who lived as late as 1407. He appears as a late, if not the last, holdout as a monetary refusenik Irish chieftain. And by him, the final adoption, or at least the final acceptance, of coinage throughout Gaelic Ireland may be dated to 1407 at the earliest.
