Some banks are not open on Monday

By Dan Walsh

Eighty-eight Bank of Ireland branches nationwide will not open their doors on Monday morning, the day before the 2022 Budget announcement in Dáil Éireann. Customers who were so proud of supporting their local branch service in rural parts of the country are disappointed and feel betrayed at losing another integral part of rural villages.

The bank has ceased services at more than a third of its locations as part of significant changes to its branch network and local banking services. The move was first announced on last March.

Two branches are permanently closed in Co. Wexford at Rosslare Harbour and Taghmon. But other closures also affect customers who do their banking outside the Wexford border at Carlow where Tullow and Borris are closed and Bank of Ireland branches in Carnew, Rathdrum and Tinahely in neighbouring Co. Wicklow.

Banks services, such as cash withdrawals and lodgements, will now be available through the post office network.
