A cabinet minister has played down the extent of the new inspections Ireland will face after the bailout.
It ha been confirmed that the Troika will continue their visits to Ireland every six months to examine its progress.
The inspections will continue until Ireland repays three-quarters of the bailout, which is set to take two decades or more.
But the Minister for Communications, Pat Rabbitte, said the inspections won't be as tough as the ones under the bailout:
"It's not significant as it affects sovereignty," he said. "It's not something that I would take offence at."
"We're willing members of the European Union. And perhaps if there was better surveyance a few years ago, we wouldn't have gotten into the mess we got into."
