Bank of Ireland To Close In September

For a long time now, the banks have been embracing technology and replacing friendly human faces with machines. Because of that, are we surprised that footfall has been declining. Recently, I entered the bank to transfer money but was escorted back out to the hole in the wall to complete the transaction.

So we have a choice here,

We can waste energy lamenting the loss of a bank in our community or we can scale up our banking activities at our wonderful local post office, so well and efficiently managed by Mary Delaney and her team. There is always a welcome on the mat and a conversation to be had in addition to great service. Mary and her team care about and are interested in their customers unlike machines, cold and soulless.

The answer is simple but critical to ensure the longevity and growth of our local post office and in time the bank will be consigned to a distant memory.
