Former Anglo Irish Bank chairman Sean FitzPatrick will go on trial next May on charges of breaching the Companies Act.

The 66-year-old from Whitshed Road, Greystones, Co Wicklow has pleaded not guilty to 27 offences including making a misleading, false or deceptive statement to auditors and furnishing false information between 2002 and 2007.

He had been due to stand trial earlier this month, but the High Court ruled that the trial should be put back by seven months due to adverse publicity.

Judge Martin Nolan has now set the trial date for May 25.
