* With the sky falling in, David Drumm, Seanie's anointed successor, told his staff at Anglo: let's party in 2008.
And so the bank spent €53,000 on hampers and wine for clients and €24,000, bringing customers and their children to the annual Christmas panto in the Gaiety.
The previous year, Anglo spent €272,000 on Christmas staff parties in Dublin, London and Boston and €229,000 on three Christmas parties for clients, in addition to €87,000 on hampers and wine for customers.
The Irish taxpayer has subsequently spent €63bn bailing out the banks.
That's some party.
