Not talking small money are we & considering they have already been bailed out so where is the money going? this is almost £70 Billion they have needed?

Down a bottomless pit by the looks of it.

It's just a silly rumour.

They're part of the much quoted prosperous Celtic fringe like Iceland, which Alex Salmond would like to join!

they are an endless money pit like bank of scotland and should be wound up.

I expect they still plan to pay massive bonus payments to those that got it in debt and those senior managers for poor supervision.

I am surprised that GB has not been blamed for it !

"Spain’s banks haven’t yet been forced to disclose the full extent of the losses" so basicly Spain can also be projected to be much worse than is made public?

GB Greedy Bankers?

Why ?
The bank is a business.
It cant trade - Its toast!
The longer this goes on the more it will cost !
If I lived in Ireland i would be truely pissed!
Hell i live in England and I still cant come to terms with this ...
If anyone can (without the platitudes ) explain just why the bank cant fail I would appreciate it (truely)..

from uboat
£70 Billion they have needed
Ireland has a pop. of 6 mill (7 tops = easier sums)
So everyone in the country could just be given £10K let the bank fail ... and everyone start again
May focus the minds

I'm not sure what that means, but I can provide an explanation, if not the explanation.

The main worry as far as we're concerned is that around 40 billion euros of the money that was lent to Irish banks by other countries - of which we were one - is not covered by the Irish government's guarantee. If the banks go down, our money will go down with them. That seems like a fairly good reason why we and the other creditors should try to see it doesn't happen.

Spot the platitude - I hope you can't.
