The National Asset Management Agency Act 2009: Annotations and Commentary

A Guide to Irish Law

By Hugh B. Byrne, Louis McEntagart

Ireland's National Asset Management Act 2009 has been widely described in the Irish media as the most important piece of legislation in the history of the state. It is the Irish government's attempt to resolve the current economic and banking crisis in Ireland. The plan is to establish the National Asset Management Agency to function as a 'bad bank,' acquiring all property development loans of over E5m from Irish banks. This book will be invaluable, since there is widespread confusion about what the Act will do. It comprises the full text of Act, with detailed notes, including definitions and cross-references.
