Ireland: External debt and/or exposure of its main banking systems

The BIS provides statistics on the exposure of the main banking systems on the debtor countries. These are available in table 9B (consolidated claims on immediate borrower basis) of the BIS Consolidated Banking Statistics. The most recent data is end-June 2010 (provisional data). Historical time series are also available in csv format.

Statistics on the overall external debt of a country  from the data reported by its creditors are available on the Joint External Debt Hub website (JEDH) in the creditor/market tables. JEDH also provides the external debt data as reported by the debtor country itself (national tables).
