Former Anglo Irish Bank chief executive David Drumm spent his first day of freedom in five months signing on at a garda station.

Dressed in a pair of blue jeans, a navy fleece, a black gilet jacket and a pair of Nike runners, Mr Drumm (49) was dropped off at Balbriggan Garda Station in north Co Dublin just after midday by his sister.

He spent less than five minutes inside the station signing on for the first time and left without making any comment to the waiting media.

Mr Drumm arrived in Ireland on Monday morning following his extradition from the US, where he had spent five months in custody. He appeared before the Criminal Courts of Justice where he was freed after he lodged €50,000 in cash and his parents-in-law Danny and Georgina O'Farrell put up €100,000 sureties for his bail.

As part of his bail conditions he handed in his passport, agreed to live at an address in Skerries and to sign twice a day at Balbriggan Garda Station.

He faces 33 charges relating to his time at the failed Anglo Irish Bank, including fraud, forgery and false accounting.

He will appear in Dublin Circuit Criminal Court on April 8.
