Here's the list of the 70 AIB outlets going cashless this year
You'll no longer be able to use the ATM at a number of branches.
Allied Irish Bank (AIB) has announced some major changes to 70 branches across the country, by making the outlets cashless.
This means the branches will not have notes, coins, cheques, foreign exchange, bank drafts and will also remove any drop safes and night safes. ATMs outside the branches will also be removed.
"We regularly review our services to make sure we continue to provide a modern, community-based, sustainable banking service," AIB said on its website.
"During our most recent review, we decided to change our services in some of our branches.
"We based our decision on falling levels of cash usage and cheque transactions, and a rise in the popularity of non-cash alternatives such as digital and card payments. The cost of security and handling cash has also risen."
If there is an ATM outside the branch where services are changing, that will also be removed.
The changes will be rolled out in a number of branches from 30 September and then more from 21 October, with 70 branches being converted in total.
Here's the full list of banks being converted, and when:
Branches going cashless on 30 September
- New Ross
- Western Road
Branches going cashless on 21 October
- The Lab
AIB customers will be able to use their local post office to withdraw and lodge cash into their Current Accounts, along with other banking services.
“An Post welcomes the strengthening of our relationship with AIB," said Debbie Byrne, Managing Director of Retail at An Post.
"We are delighted to partner with it, providing everyday banking services to AIB customers, six days a week, across our national post office network.
"Our network of c. 920 post offices are intrinsic to the financial and social fabric of Ireland. The positive impact of this enhanced partnership recognises the needs of local communities and helps underpin the future sustainability of the network as we continue to innovate and re-imagine the role of the post office in communities into the future.”
More information, including the nearest branch with cash services, is available on the AIB website.
