In its annual report, the bank said it continued to be the largest lender in the country with 6.9 billion euros of new loans issued in 2015.
It said all of its trading divisions were profitable during the year, while it has also continued to strengthen its capital position.
The bank said it reduced its non-performing loans by a further 3.8 billion euros, adding that it anticipates further reductions in non-performing loans this year and beyond.
“With our strong franchises, we are well positioned to meet credit demand which is recovering as the Irish economy grows and confidence returns,” said the bank’s CEO Richie Boucher.
He said the bank has maintained its progress towards dividends and has updated its distribution policy.
