Irish Central Bank issue a €2 coin in 2019 commemorating 100th anniversary of first assembly in Dáil Éireann. Likely to be issued in January, I don't however know if this is the final design.

Almost. ;)  The central bank just published the details about the coin, and the year "1919" at the top looks a little different. From what I have read, the design shows the first session of the Dáil Éireann at the Mansion House in Dublin. The many dots represent the delegates in the plenary hall, with some visitors above.

The commemorative €2 coin (mintage 1 million) will be issued on 21 January. Later this year it can also be had in BU and proof sets. There will be a €100 collector coin too, with basically the same design.
