Commenting on the results, David Drumm, Group Chief Executive, said: "2007 has been another outstanding year for the Bank with high quality lending growth of €18 billion and underlying earnings up 44% to €1,221 million.

Asset quality remains excellent with a specific impairment charge of 9 basis points, consistent with last year. The Bank has a resilient funding platform, excellent liquidity and capital strength - these position us well to take advantage of the significant potential in each of our core markets while maintaining our relentless focus on asset quality.

We are confident that our proven organic strategy will continue to deliver strong performance in the years ahead and anticipate underlying earnings per share growth in excess of 15% in 2008."
