7. Back in the leadup to the introduction of the Euro in 2002,

there was a massive rush to buy properties in Spain by Irish customers. They went over with suitcases full of Irish pounds, converted it to Spanish pesetas, and bought the property. Then after a year or two, sold it for little or no profit, but received the money in Euros !

The Russians are there now, buying up lots of properties !
