Deputy Doherty claims IBRC had major agreement with Denis O’Brien

pearsedoThe Dail has heard new claims that IBRC's liquidators were involved in a major agreement with Denis O'Brien - which will not be investigated by a Commission of Investigation.

Sinn Fein TD Pearse Doherty says the liquidators agreed a loan facility of 315 million euro with the businessman - nine months after the bank was put into liquidation.
