Sir Edwin Lutyens completed Heywood Gardens in 1912. Its walls enclose lawns, lakes, trees, hedges, pools and much more to surprise and enchant the visitor.

The Irish euro coins share the same design by Jarlath Hayes, that of the harp, a traditional symbol for Ireland since the Middle Ages, based on that of the Brian Boru harp, housed in Trinity College, Dublin. The same harp is used as the official seals of the Taoiseach, and government ministers and the Official Seal of the President of Ireland. The coins' design also features the 12 stars of the EU, the year of imprint and the Irish name for Ireland, "EIRE", in the traditional Gaelic script.
