So who's going to play Seanie?
Seriously, the movie will be playing in a couple of years time and Fitzpatrick will be watching the World Cup somewhere with DOB and John Delaney
http://www.irishtimes.com/newspaper/...319600368.htmlFUNDING TO develop a feature film script telling the story of Anglo Irish Bank has been awarded by the Irish Film Board.
It will be based on the book Anglo Republic: Inside the Bank that Broke Ireland by Irish Times finance correspondent Simon Carswell. Two Irish scriptwriters are behind the Anglo Irish project: Eugene O’Brien (who wrote the play Eden) and Neal Rowland (involved in the film Once as development executive at Samson Films).
A €16,000 script development loan was given to the project in the film board’s latest funding decisions announced this week.
Carswell’s book details the rise and fall of Anglo Irish Bank – and the men who presided over it – and examines how its collapse affected the State’s finances
McAteer has been arrested this morning and is due to be charged this afternoon, according to RTE
Would you mind if I moved these posts to the Anglo Irish investigation thread?Mr McAteer is facing 16 charges under Section 60 of the Companies Act, which is the provision in Irish company law that essentially prohibits a private director from giving direct or indirect financial assistance for the purchase of its own shares.
Surely, McAteer's share interests in McInerney's, heavy Anglo borrowers, were also worth a look by the Gardaí ?

Looks like a second arrest coming up today. Seanie?
http://www.thejournal.ie/willie-mcat...30299-Jul2012/TheJournal.ie understand that the man in question is McAteer and that another arrest in connection with the investigation is expected later today.
There was a report last week saying that Gardaí were leaking again that Fitzgerald was, again, going to be arrested, and this time charged.
Is there an appropriate way we could mark this occasion on this thread (two years old now) or should we wait and see if there is a trial, and a verdict ?
Two people have been arrested and one has been charged in relation to an alleged share price support scheme at Anglo.
A degree of caution in our comments on these proceedings would be good. No-one would wish to prejudice the right of the accused to a fair trial.
I hope the enforcers of the law do not stop there. There is a long way to go before they can earn back the respect of the public they are supposed to serve.
