Better take note.
AIB announced earlier today that almost half of all of its Cork branches will be going completely cashless.
The bank will be removing cash, ATMs and cheque services from 70 of its 170 branches across the country, with 12 of the 26 branches in Cork affected by the change. According AIB, digital banking is at an all time high, and the cost of providing cash services has become increasingly unsustainable.
The change will come in to effect in the Bishopstown, Glanmire, Carrigaline, and Western Road branches from September 30th, and in the Castletownbere, Kinsale, Kanturk, Dunmanway, Millstreet, Cobh, Mitchelstown and Youghal branches from October 21st.
Customers will be able to access cash in all other AIB branches, such as Douglas, as well as their local Post Office, ATM and point of sale locations (cash back). Thanks to a strengthened national investment partnership with An Post, AIB customers will be able access banking services (including cash and cheque services) from all 920 An Post locations nationwide, six days a week.
AIB has also mentioned that the decision to go cashless will enable them to focus on the development of more account-opening facilities as KBC and Ulster Bank leave the market.
