Anglo Irish Bank

Anglo Irish Bank

A nationalised Irish bank that mainly deals with business and commercial banking. The bank lent heavily to property developers meaning that it was badly affected in the downturn of the property market in 2008, this resulted in the Irish government buying 75% of the bank for €1.5 billion in December 2008 to save the bank. On the 30th of September 2010 the Government announced that the estimated total cost of bailing out the bank would be in the region of €30 billion.
