[Also], legislation set as a statutory objective of the [central bank and financial regulator] the promotion of the financial services industry in Ireland, the situation was ripe for the emergence of a rather accommodating stance vis-à-vis credit institutions.” Honohan Report on the Irish banking crisis, May 2010, p.44.
