The National Treasury Management Agency said today it plans to hold an auction of Irish Treasury Bills on Thursday October 21.

The NTMA said it will offer €750m of Irish Treasury Bills, which are due to mature in April 2022, at Thursday's auction.

Last week, the NTMA completed a triple auction of €1.5 billion of benchmark Irish Government bonds at the upper end of its €1-1.5 billion range.

The NTMA has now issued €17.5 billion of bonds in 2021.

It has a full year target of €18-20 billion.
