Four AIB Branches To Go Cashless In Tipperary This Year.

AIB Thurles, Co. Tipperary.

More than one in three of current AIB branches, in the country, to go cashless
It has been announced that 70 Allied Irish Bank (AIB) branches will no longer offer cash and cheque services at the counter, or through their infernal, internal machines within the bank, from the 30th of September and the 21st of October next.

The AIB banks marked to make these cashless changes within Co. Tipperary by October 21st are:

Roscrea, Co. Tipperary.
Carrick-On-Suir, Co. Tipperary.
Cashel, Co. Tipperary.
Cahir, Co. Tipperary.

The AIB branch in Thurles is expected to remain as it is currently, due to the Ulster Bank at Liberty Square, slowly receding from public view.

These moves at above named branches will see: no notes, coins, cheques, foreign exchange transactions, bank drafts and the removal of drop safes and night safes.

AIB, laughingly, maintain that it is making these changes as part of a €40m investment programme and as it deepens its intimate relationship with An Post.

Where ATM’s exist outside of branches; where the threatened services are to be withdrawn, same will now be totally eradicated.

It would appear that AIB is failing to understand the importance of economic rural functions and social inclusion.

Time now for rural communities, in particular, to raise their voices.
Where does County Tipperary Chamber now stand, regarding this announcement?
Time now to take a closer look at how Credit Unions do business.
