 Sept 23 (Reuters) - Ireland sold on Thursday 400.1 million
euros of treasury bills, the middle of a planned 300 million to
500 million euros target range, while average yields fell on the
February paper and rose on April paper from the previous sale. 
 Ireland, which is fully funded until the middle of next
year, has recently shrunk the amount of short-term paper for
sale but is continuing with scheduled auctions to reassure
investors that it can still tap debt markets despite concerns
about its financial situation. 
 Similar to auctions of other issuers on the euro zone
periphery, including Ireland's auction of bonds earlier this
week, demand was good in Thursday's t-bill auction particularly
or the April bill.
