Speaking to The Echo today, the Taoiseach clarified:
“I misspoke yesterday in the Dáil and made a mistake in terms of how I articulated it.
“Essentially I was making the point that the shareholders…themselves weren’t bailed out.
“But obviously the banks, there was a huge rescue package for the banks, of course there was we know that, in terms of both protecting depositors and protecting bond holders,” he said.
