Government 'considering selling Aer Lingus stake'

The government is reported to be considering selling its 25 % stake in Aer Lingus.

Although, the value of the shares, estimated to be €100m, may be considered too low at present.

According to the Irish Times, an inter-departmental group has identified a range of assets that could be sold as part of the terms of our bailout agreed with the troika.

Dublin Port, Coillte and parts of Bord Gais have also been listed as potential assets to be sold.

The Troika want €5bn to be raised from selling state assets but the Government has only committed to €2bn so far.
