Bank of Ireland reports that a technical issue which impacted on a number of its IRT services has now been rectified.

Same service glitch meant that customers were able to transfer and withdraw funds that did not actually exist in their personal bank accounts.

Queues formed at ATMs across the country last night, as people rushed to withdraw cash, after transferring non-existent funds to their Revolut accounts.
There are reports on Social Media of mass purchases of cigarettes, TVs, petrol & diesel.

Apologising for the impacted services, this morning, Bank of Ireland have confirmed that in such cases the transfers and withdrawals will be fully applied to customer accounts today.

They are also urging any customers who may now find themselves in financial difficulty, because of withdrawals on their account, to make contact with them.

In a statement the bank said “Overnight payments to accounts may appear throughout the day. We are aware that the technical issue meant some customers were able to withdraw or transfer funds above their normal limits. These transfers and withdrawals will be applied to customers accounts today. We urge any customer who may find themselves in financial difficulty due to overdrawing on their account to contact us. We sincerely apologise for the disruption this outage caused – we know we fell far below the standards our customers expect from us.”
