The National Treasury Management Agency said it sold €750m of 14 year bonds as planned today at a yield of 0.978%.

Today's auction was the NTMA's final scheduled bond auction of the year. 

The auction received bids worth 2.6 times the value of the debt on offer, the agency said in a statement.

The NTMA has raised €8.25 billion this year out of a guided range of €6-10 billion to fund the state during 2017.
