You can bank on it: BOI to re-open all Wicklow branches
Three local Bank of Ireland branches closed down because of the Covid-19 pandemic will reopen before the end of the month, it was confirmed today.
There had been fears some of the 161 branches which were temporarily closed down at the end of March, may not re-open once the Coronavirus emergency passed.
However, Bank of Ireland today confirmed they will be opening the branches in Carnew, Rathdrum, and Tinahely once again on June 29.
The branches in Bray, Greystones, Wicklow Town, Arklow, and Baltinglass remained fully open during the Covid-19 lockdown.
In a statement released today, the bank said: “The Bank has been keeping all operations and services under review in line with the progress being made to re-open the economy, public health advice, and the evolving needs of our customers for branch, telephone, and online banking.
“With welcome progress being made on the nationwide easing of restrictions and reopening of the economy, Bank of Ireland will be taking a number of steps to respond to the changing landscape.”
Bank of Ireland also said it will be introducing special supports for over 65s, carers and healthcare workers once the branches reopen.
The bank said it will make modifications within their branches to allow for social distancing and the protection of customers and staff, while full ATM services, including lodgements, will be available once more.
