Best to take advice from a lawyer on this one as not sure what the rules would be Ireland as compared to Britain.
If someone writes you a cheque and sends it to you then you may be entitled to cash it, however don't spend the money as they in turn if it is a mistake I would imagine are entitled to expect it back from you when they realise that a mistake has been made. Maybe pay it in and keep the interest but be ready to give it back when requested!
