Interest rates have been cut by 0.5% by US EU and US banks. When and if will Irish banks pass this on and when will we be affected for mortgages?

If you're on a tracker it def benefits you because a tracker is ECB + a % say ECB + .8% would have been (before decrease) = 5.05% this will now reduce to 4.55%. The only people not benefiting are the fixed rates! The banks have to pass it on within a certain time frame or the government are applying penalties
