Are my Irish pounds any good?

I was cleaning up around the house and I ran across some Irish money from back in 2000 when I made a trip to Dublin. Now that Ireland uses the Euro, is the money worth anything? If so, how would I go about turning it into American greenbacks?

The Central Bank in Dublin is the only place I know of where you can still exchange Irish pounds. The exchange rate is £1 = €1.27. If you ask nicely you can probably find a Dublin Doper willing to trade them in for you.
