It is the first dividend of 25% of what is owed to the taxpayer
The State has received a payment of €280m from the liquidation of the Irish Bank Resolution Corporation (IBRC).
It is the first dividend payment of 25% of what is owed to the taxpayer.
The liquidators have said they hope to pay out somewhere between 75% and 100% of what is due to unsecured creditors.
Finance Minister Michael Noonan says the payment will reduce the amount he has to borrow.
The Joint Special Liquidators - Kieran Wallace and Eamonn Richardson of KPMG Dublin - say a first interim dividend is being paid to admitted unsecured creditors of IBRC in the amount of 25% of admitted unsecured creditor balances.
The payments will be issued over the next two weeks.
