Builders, Secret Millionaire and O'Brien on list
Information obtained by the Sunday Independent has revealed for the first time the top 13 borrowers of the former Anglo Irish Bank, which is now called IBRC.
The 13, which include developers such as Joe O'Reilly and Bernard McNamara, owed a total of €13.9bn in March 2009, according to a government review by accountants PWC, which was completed around May of that year.
PWC told the Government that the bank's top borrowers would only cost the State €629m and that the bank was "not unreasonable" in its prediction in March 2009 that losses on the entire loan book would only be €4bn.
This figure has since ballooned to between €25bn and €30bn demonstrating how badly the property crash caught out the then government and its many advisers.
Despite the O'Brien bashing tone, I think this too is interesting...
edit: I hadn't read far enough, it's pretty sympathetic to Mr. O'Brien and it seems clear that he is performing admirably on his loans...
edit2: anyone want to admit to reading the paper edition and give us the other 12 borrowers?
