Bank of Ireland will close 101 branches from tomorrow while 161 will remain open.
The branches in County Wexford at Enniscorthy, Gorey, New Ross, Wexford, and Bunclody, will all remain open.
In a statement, Bank of Ireland said it has seen a reduction in footfall in its branches, while it was seeing an increase in customers needing a different range of supports.
Gavin Kelly, CEO Retail Ireland, said,
“the bank is constantly reviewing its operations to ensure we are providing the right supports for customers through this challenging period.”
“These changes help us to respond to the most pressing needs of our customers right now – that’s support in managing the impact of coronavirus on their personal finances and on their businesses.”
“These changes also refocus our branch network to our larger locations, which will help us support social distancing,”
“This is extremely important for our customers and colleagues, whose safety and wellbeing is our priority. This will complement the enhanced cleaning and hygiene measures we have in place in our branches,”
