...Click to expandBank of Ireland announced on Monday morning that over one hundred of its branches will close during the coronavirus outbreak. The bank said it has seen a drop in the number of customers coming into branches during the pandemic. As a result, 101 of its locations across the country will be closed - but their ATMs will be in operation. And 161 of BOI's branches will remain open during this period with 13 of those being "Advice and Self Service" locations, which do not provide a counter service. Opening hours will continue to remain as normal, with the hour between 10am and 11am earmarked for over 65s and carers. A statement said: "During the pandemic the Bank has seen a reduction in footfall in branches predominantly at Advice and Self Service locations. "These changes will allow colleagues from temporarily closed branches to support our larger branches and our contact centres in managing the increased volume of customers requiring COVID-19 support. "These changes also refocus our branch network to our larger locations, which will help us support social distancing. "This is extremely important for our customers and colleagues, whose safety and wellbeing is our top priority. "Open branches will continue the provision of prioritised services for over 65’s and carers (10am – 11am, Mon – Friday)."
