Whelan's career with Anglo Irish

Patrick Whelan was head of group risk at Anglo Irish Bank before joining the executive board in 2006 and heading Irish operations.

The 50-year-old stepped down from the board a month after the bank was nationalised in January 2009 but continued in his role as managing director of lending in Ireland.

Whelan, from Malahide in north Dublin, stayed with the bank for another 10 months before pursuing other business interests.

He has been allowed to keep his passport and ordered to sign on at his local garda station on a Sunday as he spends much of his working week in London.

Whelan made 2.14 million euro in his last three years working for the bank.

In 2007, he took home a remuneration packet of 1.21 million euro including pension, benefits and a 640,000 euro performance bonus.

He made 650,000 euro in 2008 and 277,000 euro in 2009 - both including pension and benefits.
