THREE LITTLE WORDS can pack a lot of power.
Three words in particular – Anglo Irish Bank – were in the spotlight today as they were removed from outside the toxic bank’s St Stephen’s Green HQ.
Onlookers, bemused tourists and a pack of photographers and TV cameras witnessed the removal of possibly the most-hated moniker in recent Irish history. Several vehicles honked their horns in approval in the post-lunchtime traffic round the Green – including the driver of a cash-in-transit van.
Will the removal of the name from the Anglo Irish facade right the wrongs of the Irish financial collapse? No.
Was it cathartic? Probably.
