S&P eases Irish ratings
RATING agency Standard & Poor's have removed Bord Gais, ESB and the Dublin Airport Authority from credit watch.
The semi-State organisations have been moved from "negative-watch" to negative by the ratings agency.
The changes were announced as part of a revision by Standard & Poor's of its ratings and outlooks on Government-related entities in the euro zone. They had been placed on credit watch with negative implications on December 8.
