Anglo duo to appeal convictions for conspiring to defraud Revenue
Tiarnan O'Mahoney.

An appeal against the convictions of two former executives of Anglo Irish Bank for conspiring to defraud Revenue is due to get underway today.

They have spent the past five months in prison after a jury found them guilty of trying to hide accounts connected to a senior figure at the former bank.

After being convicted on all charges last July, Tiarnan O’Mahoney, who used to be second in command at Anglo, was jailed for three years, while the bank’s former Company Secretary Bernard Daly was jailed for two.

Aoife Maguire, who used to work there as an Assistant Manager, was handed an 18-month sentence, but was released following a successful appeal just before Christmas.

The trio were found guilty of trying to hide accounts from Revenue between March 2003 and December 2004.

The Court of Appeal has set aside three days to hear O’Mahoney and Daly’s attempts to have their convictions set aside. Both men are also appealing the sentences handed down.
