Appointment of Acting Governor of Central Bank of Ireland

10 May 2019 Press Release
The Central Bank Commission has appointed Sharon Donnery as Acting Governor of the Central Bank of Ireland for the period 1 June – 31 August 2019. This follows the announcement from Government last week of the nomination of Gabriel Makhlouf for appointment as Governor.

As Mr Makhlouf is due to take up this position on 1 September 2019, it is necessary to appoint an Acting Governor for the period in which any vacancy arises. Ms Donnery will take over as Acting Governor on 1 June 2019 following the departure of Governor Lane for his new role at the European Central Bank.

Under the Central Bank Act, the Acting Governor has all the responsibilities and powers of the Governor. During this period Ms Donnery will also continue to perform her role as Deputy Governor, Central Banking.
