Of the three banks to receive assistance, the Anglo Irish Bank was given 1.5 billion Euros ($3.1 billion) – buying Irish tax payers 75 per cent of voting rights and essentially nationalising the bank.

The Bank of Ireland and Allied Irish banks each received two billion Euros, giving the government approximately 25 per cent of voting rights on directorial and board appointments.
