ON December 29 last, we published a round-up of the news stories from 2013.
In doing so, we mistakenly referred to Peter Fitzgerald in relation to a statement which was in fact made by another person who occupied the position of head of treasury at the former Anglo Irish Bank.
In particular, it was incorrectly stated in the context of explaining how a figure of €7bn in relation to a loan application between the former Anglo Irish Bank and the Central Bank was arrived at: "just as Drummer would say, I picked it out of my arse".
This statement was not made by Mr Fitzgerald. We are happy to make this correction.
