We investigate the thermonuclear bursting behaviour of IGR J17473−2721, an X-ray transient that in 2008 underwent a 6-month long outburst, starting (unusually) with an X-ray burst. We detected a total of 57 thermonuclear bursts throughout the outburst with AGILE, Swift, Rossi X-ray Timing Explorer (RXTE) and the INTErnational Gamma-Ray Astrophysics Laboratory(INTEGRAL). The wide range of inferred accretion rates (between
