Fianna Fáil leader Micheál Martin has today called for the publication of a report on Irish Nationwide that was concluded 18 months ago.

The building society required almost €5.5bn in bailout funds from the taxpayer.

The Department of Finance said that it has no plans to publish the work from Ernst and Young accountants and McCann Fitzgerald solicitors.

Officials say the reports are confidential and subject to legal privilege.

Micheál Martin insisted that the report needs to be made public however.

“I’m calling on it to be published, I’ll raise it in the Dáil,” he said.

“I think it should be put into the Dáil library, and it should be brought before the relevant committee in Dáil Éireann, for members of Dáil Éireann to have access to it, because it’s part of the banking crisis.”
