Abstract

We present a review of the Irish banking collapse, detailing its origins in a confluence of events. We suggest that the very concentrated nature of the Irish banking sector, which will emerge from the policy decisions taken as a consequence of the collapse, runs a risk of a second crisis. We survey the literature on size and efficiency and suggest some alternative policy approaches.
