Some have described the IMF presence as darkest day in Irish history
Today I spent many hours outside the Department Of Finance hoping to get some interesting photographs but there was one major problem in that I do not know what any of the IMF delegation look like. The local and international journalists had the same problem so their solution was to photograph every person who walked by the building.
The darkest day in Irish history- that’s how the leader of the Labour party described the Irish Monetary Fund’s presence in the country to discuss a bailout.
Talks on a multi billion euro rescue package are expected to intensify this morning as the remainder of the IMF officials arrive in Dublin.
After days of denials by the Government over what was happening both sides will discuss what exactly is needed to address the problems in the banking sector and at what price.
Labour leader Eamon Gilmore said in light of whats happened in the past two days the Government has no option but to stand aside.
