A petition to put Conor McGregor's face on the €1 coin has been deemed inadmissible.
It has been struck down by the Oireachtas petitions committee, which said it could not contact the person responsible for submitting it.

However it has urged anyone favouring the call to contact the Central Bank.
The UFC champion has himself backed the petition, tweeting his support and saying it would be a "huge honour".
It would be a true honour for me to be immortalised on the €1 coin!
Thank you to my fans for the petition!Let's go Oireachtas! Vote YES :-)— Conor McGregor (@TheNotoriousMMA) January 13, 2016
Committee chairman Padraig Mac Lochlainn said that he regrets having to dismiss the petition.
"Well, unfortunately we can't deem it admissible, and take further action on it," he said.
"It is a matter of public interest around how decisions are made, around who goes on coins, and issues like that.
"So that's the decision."
The fighter later took to his official Twitter account to express his disappointment.
