Gleeson clings to misguided belief his bank was impregnable before crash
I never thought I’d see the day when a banker would be able to shock me again. The banking crisis and the subsequent economic crash put paid to that possibility, or so I thought.
But just two days into the key evidence phase of the banking inquiry, I had to do a U-turn.
Thanks goes to former AIB chairman Dermot Gleeson, who, okay, is technically not a banker, but who oversaw the board of what was once Ireland’s biggest bank right up to 2009.
