    Here's a good one: Ireland's 2 biggest lenders - Bank of Ireland (IRE) and Allied Irish, both majority-owned (in AIB's case 99% owned) by the state - reject a request by the government to lower variable interest rates after the ECB cut its benchmark 25 basis points. "Pathetic," says a member of the finance ministry.

Barclays (BCS -3.5%), Bank of Ireland (IRE -13.9%), Santander (STD -3.9%).

    Seeing that the EFSF may be expanded to help recap French banks, Ireland looks to get some candy as well. The government is seeking to have the EFSF take over its stakes in AIB and Irish Life & Permanent, reducing the nation's debt load by more than €20B. EU sources react coolly, saying Ireland has been "dealt with."

    Reuters is reporting the EBA (the EU bank regulator) is performing more stress tests, this time requiring a core tier 1 ratio of 7%. Given conservative haircut figures, this would imply the need for EU banks to raise nearly €100B in capital. Of the major banks, RBS would need the most, €5.7B.

    "The fundamental advantages of Ireland are intact," says Wilbur Ross, who believes the country - having taken its medicine - will be first to emerge from the PIIGS debt crisis. Ross has been heavily investing in cheap assets there, most recently joining with others to buy 35% of Bank of Ireland (IRE).
