After yet another Bank Holiday weekend where Manorhamilton town was left without access to an ATM, Fine Gael TD for Sligo - Leitrim, Tony Mc Loughlin has called on the management of Bank of Ireland to ensure that its ATM in Manorhamilton is kept filled with money during busy holiday periods.
Local people took to social media to say this is the third Bank Holiday the ATM was not working fully to access funds.
“It’s not good for local business or local people seeking to access their money during the holiday period,” stated Deputy McLoughlin.
“People had been left without access to money in Manorhamilton and had to make trips to either Sligo or Bundoran to access funds. This is unacceptable and it is not helpful to SME’s in Manorhamilton or other small villages close by.” He noted the ATM in Manorhamilton covers a large catchment area.
McLoughlin called on AIB to establish an ATM facility in Manorhamilton to help alleviate this problem.
