Three Tipp BOI Banks To Open On Saturdays To Help People Move Accounts


Bank of Ireland is to open three branches in Tipperary on four Saturdays in October to assist KBC and Ulster Bank customers moving accounts.

The branches involved are in Thurles, Nenagh and Clonmel and they will open from 10am to 2pm on the 4 Saturdays.

The branches will be open on dates between October 1st and October 22nd .

In total  61 branches across the country will open to help customers needing information on moving accounts and  assistance for customers in the account opening process will be available for those ready to move their account on the day.

Such customers will need to provide at least one form of photo ID and one form of proof of address. 

KBC Bank of Ireland and Ulster Bank are both withdrawing from the Irish retail market and their customers have to set up new accounts and notify those making payments to or  receiving payments from the account with their new account details.

The bank says moving account and making the related changes – including changing direct debit arrangements for utilities and services  has become a more pressing priority for Irish consumers and businesses.

Three Bank of Ireland branches in Limerick will also open on the 4 Saturdays between October 1st and 22nd – these are at 125 O’Connell Street, Limerick city,  University of Limerick in Castletroy and in Dooradoyle.
