EU, IMF Officials Fly Into Dublin as Bailout Nears

European Union and International Monetary Fund officials jet into Dublin today as the Irish government edges closer to accepting a bailout for its national finances and the banking system.

The government will hold talks with the EU, IMF and the European Central Bank across the capital “over a number of days,” a Finance Ministry spokesman said yesterday. Discussions will be held at the Irish central bank, the country’s bond agency and the Finance Ministry. No press briefings are planned today.
