The Central Bank inquiry investigating the stewardship of the now defunct Irish Nationwide Building Society has been adjourned for two days due to the illness of one of its key figures. 

The inquiry had been due to hear evidence from former financial regulator Patrick Neary, who held the role between 2006 and 2009. 

However this morning it was told that former INBS chief executive Michael Fingleton, who is representing himself at the inquiry, was unwell. 

The inquiry is now due to recommence on Wednesday.
