THE list of high-profile borrowers compiled by the former Anglo Irish Bank before it was liquidated last year is as necessary as it is a source of fascination. As well as developers, the IBRC (formerly Anglo) counted among its clients high-profile figures from Ireland's business, legal, sports and entertainment worlds.

No doubt similar lists were compiled in all covered banks.
