Ireland has credit rating cut again
Thursday 3 February 2011 - by Will Henley
Standard & Poor's has downgraded Ireland's credit rating from A to A- and warned that a further lowering could be on the cards for the beleaguered country.
Last week the Parliament passed a crucial Finance Bill, one of the conditions of an €85bn joint ECB-IMF bailout.
On Wednesday, the Central Bank of Ireland revealed the individuals appointed to its new Consumer Advisory Group, tasked with advising the central bank on its performance in protecting consumers.
The group includes Consumers Association of Ireland chief executive Dermott Jewell and former commissioner of the Financial Consumer Agency of Canada, Bill Knight.
