Euro under pressure after bail-out

European ministers have agreed on a bail-out package for the Irish Republic worth around 85bn euros ($113bn; £72bn).

But investors are not convinced the fund will end the country's crisis, putting new pressure on the single currency.

There are also concerns that Spain and Portugal may need help to deal with their huge debts, pushing the euro's value to a two-month low.
