Permanent TSB's expansion plans

Permanent TSB seems to have successfully weathered the financial crisis without resorting to government bail outs and seems intent of becoming a much larger player. It's reported that it's intent on taking over EBS and Irish Nationwide.
Any views on whether it would be interested in taking over First Trust bank, the former TSB bank in NI which AIB is currently trying to sell?
