Ireland’s central bank has earmarked around €1.7 billion for a payment to the government, sources have revealed.

The payment, which is in line with last year’s, stems from the bank’s profit in 2015, according to insiders who want to stay anonymous because the organisation’s annual report has yet to go to government.

It is understood the details may be announced as early as next week.
