@TheHardShoulder @PearseDoherty @sinnfeinireland @AskKBCIreland @bankofireland PUP payments and mortgage breaks are masking the financial catastrophe, KBC and Ulster bank know this, Pearse won’t mention that because he’s a lockdown hawk and it’s astonishing that you can have an entire interview on this problem and not mention the cause of it.

Permanent TSB is hoping to acquire Ulster Bank's deposits to drive its ambition to become a third banking force. But to get the deal done, PTSB will have to solve a wickedly difficult IT problem – and NatWest is concerned that it is not up to it.
