Check Out Pictures Of Defunct Anglo Irish Bank Getting Stripped Of Its Name

THREE LITTLE WORDS can pack a lot of power.

Onlookers, bemused tourists and a pack of photographers and TV cameras witnessed the removal of possibly the most-hated moniker in recent Irish history. Several vehicles honked their horns in approval in the post-lunchtime traffic round the Green – including the driver of a cash-in-transit van.

Was it cathartic? Probably.
