EU Support in the Irish Financial Crisis

10 mins 31 secs

Overview

Ireland’s financial system had hit rock bottom and the need for international assistance loomed. This support arrived through the ‘Troika Programme.’ The result was capital injections into the BOI as well as the IBRC in promissory notes, leading to their liquidation. Ireland’s financial system was on the road to recovery.

Key learning objectives:

  • Explain the background to Ireland’s Financial Crisis and the need for international assistance

  • Identify the motives behind the ECB actions

  • Discuss the role of the Troika Programme and its liquidation of IBRC which secured recovery.
