When banks close local branches, another part of the community is reduced


We are all aware that we need to evolve with the times and update practices, but many of us cannot help but regret that so many local banks are closing their doors.

n Dublin, Limerick, Laois, Offaly, Cork, Kerry, Mayo, Donegal, Westmeath, Bank of Ireland is closing several premises – a third of Bank of Ireland branches will close.

Nowadays, people do a lot more of their business online and through apps; fewer people visit real banks, and obviously they feel they have to go with the flow. I once worked for a very practical Frenchwoman who only knew three words of English – “business is business” – and that’s quite true. The business is not a charity, it is not a community service; it has to work in a way that makes business sense.
