FitzPatrick signs on at Garda station

Accused former Anglo boss Seán FitzPatrick adhered to his bail conditions yesterday morning when he signed on at Irishtown Garda Station.

The one-time chairman and chief executive of Anglo Irish Bank skipped past photographers after complying with the requirement at the south city station.

The silver-haired financier was charged last Tuesday week on 16 counts of authorising allegedly illegal loans to individuals to buy shares in Anglo on dates in Jul 2008.

The 64-year-old was granted bail in Dublin District Court on the basis of an independent surety of €10,000, provided by his sister Joyce O’Connor.

Judge Cormac Dunne attached conditions to his bail, including that he continued to reside at his home at Carnaderry, Whitshed Rd, Greystones, Wicklow.

He was instructed to provide gardaí with 48 hours notice of any change of address or travel plans outside the jurisdiction, while also being required to sign on every Wednesday between 9am and 9pm at Irishtown Garda Station.
