The National Treasury Management Agency said it plans to raise between €1 billion and €1.5 billion in five, ten and 14-year debt in a bond auction on Thursday.

The NTMA has so far raised €13.25 billion of its €16-20 billion target for the year.

Last week, the NTMA said it would hold two bond auctions during the third quarter of this year with the first of these auctions on Thursday.

It plans to hold a second bond auction in September.
