Former shareholders in Anglo Irish Bank are being invited to make submissions on the shares they held prior to the bank's bailout. 

A Government-appointed assessor will determine whether the shares had any value when the bank was nationalised in 2009. 

But given the scale of the losses, there is scant hope that any shareholders will get a return.

Submissions must be made by email or by post by March 29. 

For a submission to be valid, it must include such details as the name of the person making the submission, an address, a phone number and the number of shares in Anglo Irish Bank before January 15, 2009.
