The 2013 IBRC Promissory Note repayment (non-cash settlement) resulted in €25bn of long-dated Government bonds being issued to the Central Bank of Ireland on liquidation of IBRC. This transaction results in a large increase in the share of resident holdings in March 2013. Rounding can affect totals.
