You really couldn't make it up: an artist so angry at the property boom and subsequent economic crisis, he decides to build an entire house from more than a billion euros of decommissioned notes.

Irish unemployed artist Frank Buckley built the installation inside Dublin's Glass House (pictured) from pulped bricks of shredded notes and sheets of plywood and frames donated by a local DIY shop, reports BBC News today.
