The only National Irish Bank branch in Co Leitrim is set to close its doors on November 14, 2012. Following the closure face to face meetings with bank staff will only be available through nine locations across the country: Althlone, Cork, Dublin (IFSC, Tallaght, Swords and Stillorgan), Letterkenny, Limerick and Waterford.
In a one page letter issued to customers of Carrick-on-Shannon’s NIB, the bank said the closure date had been fixed and issued a leaflet entitled ‘Banking with us’ to explain in more detail how they planned to service customer banking needs into the future.
The Bank said that it planned to change its trading name to Danske Bank as part of the change and would launch its new international name her in Ireland from November 15.
“To reflect our change in trading name and branch closures, we have revised our terms and conditions, terms of business and product names and interest rate names,” the bank noted.
“These changes will take effect from 15th November.”
From this date the Bank will also direct customers to their new website address www.danskebank.ie and advise customers using smartphone apps that they will have to download the free update from either the App Store or Google Play prior to November 15.
“It’s important to emphasise that most day-to-day aspects of your banking arrangements with us will remain the same such as your account number and sort code. You can also continue to use your cheque books, debit cards, credit cards and ATM cards as before. These will be replaced by Danske Bank branched cheque books and cards on expiry or when your cheque book runs out,” notes the letter from NIB.
Anyone with questions about the closure or the subsequent changes is asked to call the bank on 1890 882 535 Monday to Friday, 8am to 8pm and Saturday and Sunday from 9am to 4.30pm. Alternatively you can visit www.nationalirishbank.ie for further information.
