The Irish Nationwide thread

Fingleton reassured state everything was fine during his watch - Matt Cooper -> examiner.ie/opinion/columnis … 63225.html

So why did Liam O’Reilly not pursue this and other matters about Fingleton?


#402

Maybe Fingers gave him one of his preferential 100% mortgages


#403

In fairness to BB (and not overlooking some of his other foibles) this was good work on this part. When somebody comes in for such a hard time on this forum it’s a pleasant surprise to be able to commend them for something instead.

Fingleton: bank queries €88,000 of ‘suspect expenses’ at Nationwide - SIMON CARSWELL -> irishtimes.com/newspaper/fro … 01942.html

Anglo turns up the heat in quest to recover cash from Fingleton - Simon Carswell -> irishtimes.com/newspaper/fin … 98867.html


#414

It really was a piggybank, wasn’t it?


#415

It’s mind boggling…it just demonstrates the sort of sociopaths who ran our financial institutions…of course the personnel issue has all been sorted now


#416

We need to stop looking to get money back off these people. This is embezzlement. Anglo needs to call in the Guards.

Today’s Indo contains a similar case of a more blue collar variety. I see no difference between the 2 other than the fact that this guy is in front of a judge.
