New York - Ratings agency Moody's on Tuesday cut Ireland's bonds to junk status and warned of further downgrades as the eurozone economy struggles to pull out of a financial crisis.

Moody's Investors Service said it reduced Ireland's government debt ratings by one notch, to Ba1 from Baa3, saying there was a "growing possibility" that the country will need more bailout aid in late 2013 when the current European Union-International Monetary Fund support programme ends.
