Two of the three Anglo Irish Bank officials jailed last month for hiding accounts connected to Sean FitzPatrick from Revenue have lodged appeals.

Lawyers on behalf of former Anglo head of treasury Tiarnan O'Mahoney and former assistant manager Aoife Maguire filed their appeal papers with the Court of Appeal office earlier this week.

O'Mahoney and Maguire, along with former company secretary Bernard Daly, were jailed by Judge Patrick McCartan last month at Dublin Circuit Criminal Court after they were convicted of conspiring to hide or delete accounts connected to Mr FitzPatrick in 2003 and 2004 so they could not be assessed by Revenue for Deposit Interest Retention Tax (DIRT).

O'Mahoney, the most senior official on trial, is appealing both his conviction by the jury and the length of his three year sentence.

Maguire, the most junior of the three, is appealing hte length of her 18 month term only. Daly received two years but has yet to lodge an appeal. He has until Friday to do so. Appeals must be lodged within 28 days of sentence but exceptions can be made by the court.
