Hmm.. it may be better in 2002, but at the moment, getting a Euro draft
has a 3.5% commission on it, which I thought was illegal.. getting
an IEP draft has a flat charge of 1.50 or whatever from AIB.
I'm a little miffed at this..
(I also thought the changeover was 2001, but according to the brochure
I got this morning with the rest of my paper spam, it's 2002)
