Irish bail-out fails to quell bank worries

The Irish Parliament passed the EU/IMF bailout plan yesterday

Five-year upfront credit default swaps (CDS) on Irish banks rose again today, despite the Irish parliament's approval yesterday of an €85 billion European Union/International Monetary Fund bail-out, including €35 billion to support Ireland's banking sector.

CDSs on Bank of Ireland rose steeply from 13.5% up front at 1.00pm UK time yesterday to 14.5% at 1.00pm today, an all-time high for the bank.

The upfront cost of protection against Allied Irish defaulting rose from 18.5% yesterday to 22.5%
