PHOTOS: Inside the vaults at Anglo Irish Bank

A TV3 camera crew got access to the vaults at the old Anglo HQ on Stephen’s Green in Dublin. Here’s what they saw.

THERE MAY NOT be any cash left there any more but if the walls could talk…

A TV3 camera crew was given access to the vaults underneath the former head office of Anglo Irish Bank (now IBRC) on Dublin’s Stephen Green and found an eerie space filled with tokens from Ireland’s economic crash.

In a piece due to be broadcast on TV3′s evening news show The 5:30 this evening,  finance correspondent Brian O’Donovan said the rooms were full of boxes of old files, empty safety deposit boxes and items removed from branches and offices that are now closed.

The signage which used to be outside the building was also in the vaults, ready to be taken away by the National Museum to form part of an exhibition on 100 objects that represent this period in Ireland which is due to open in Collins Baracks museum tomorrow.

Here’s what the vaults look like now:
