Cheat - use the Irish keyboard layout. You want 8059-15 anyway.
You _can_ hand hack the keyboard mappings: I seem to recall
that the authors of the Spanish package to hack the Euro onto
Spanish keyboards had details. UTF-8 will also do it.
[Emacs under X displays ¤ as a Euro and alt-gr c as a ¢ but will
also still display $ and £]

I think this may answer it?
