I’d like some advice. I’m living in Northern Ireland for a long time now but I originally came from the Rep of Ireland
Before the complete collapse I sold some shares in a Southern company. The shares were willed to me many, many years ago. My nest egg!
As you’ll appreciate the cheque came in Euro. If I take it to my local bank then, I assume, they will discount it quite heavily even though it will be going straight into my regular account until I start renovations next May
What I’m trying to discover is if there is any (legal) way I can get this cheque changed into Sterling without loosing a big chunk of it. For convince sake I’d rather keep it in my Northern account but if I had to keep it down South till I needed it then I would, but I don’t think I could open an account there
Any suggestions? If you would prefer to contact me me privately then great. I just want to get this sorted out
