The Central Bank of Ireland will not appeal against a ruling by that minutes of a historic meetings of the bank’s board should be released.

Earlier this year the Office of the Information Commissioner found the Central Bank was wrong in its interpretation of the Freedom of Information (FoI) Act, which had seen it refuse access to some records.

The Central Bank then had the option of accepting or appealing the ruling. Minutes just released of a July meeting of the Commission, or board, that oversees the Central Bank, show members were told  that the Bank had decided not to appeal the decision.

Members of the board will be issued with the final records that are now set to be released.
