5 stories, 5 minutes, 5 o’clock.
The two Ministers will be holding a press conference from 4pm about the promissory note agreement. Let’s see what they have to say.
While the troika was happy with the continued implementation of the bailout programme, it warned that “unemployment remains stubbornly high” and turning into a long-term condition.
The European Central Bank President said that no decision has been taken on the IBRC promissory note.
“We have not received formal confirmation of precisely what is to be agreed,” Ruairí Quinn told the Dáil.
Why on earth were the Dáil and Seanad sitting until the small hours of this morning? This might help…
The Finance Minister also said that there “is no deal” with the
ECB at this point.
TDs voted by 113 votes to 35 to wind down the former Anglo, laying off its employees with immediate effect.
Watch live from the Seanad Chamber as members deliberate on whether to immediately wind down the former Anglo.
Here’s the total voting chart for how the Dáil divided on its final decision to liquidate the former Anglo Irish Bank.
Catch up with text commentary from the Dáil as TDs voted to wind up the former Anglo.

It’ll be a late one in the Dail.
