The Irish Republic's prime minister has marked the end of the country's bailout programme with a speech to the nation.

In a televised address, Enda Kenny said Ireland's "good name and our credibility" had been restored.

He warned that difficult economic decisions remained, with a new medium-term economic plan due to be set out this week.

But he promised that never again would "Ireland's stability be threatened by speculation and greed".
