Ireland to exit bailout in mid-December


Ireland is set to become the first eurozone country to exit a bailout program, with Prime Minister Enda Kenny saying that the nation will leave its €85B scheme on December 15.

Ireland may exit without the insurance policy of a precautionary credit line, which would stop the country from obtaining funds from the European Central Bank's Outright Monetary Transactions program of government bond purchases, but would also reduce the the conditions involved and the close monitoring from EU officials.

    Agreed! Buyers speculating on IRE just under two years ago that are still holding, are now up about 100% and still growing.

    Bank of Ireland was a great investment so far and I'll stay on board. Happily so.
