The Republic of Ireland's currency was the Irish pound until 2002, when it was replaced by the euro. The Irish pound was often called the punt in English too.

I don't hear the ''id" in "úsáidimid".

Neither do I. I hear úsáidim.

Neither do I, even after cranking up the sound on my external speakers — but I'll allow that "we do not use the Irish pound" sounds more like a sentence one would actually hear than "I do not use the Irish pound."
