The full list of the 103 Bank of Ireland branches closing in Ireland and Northern Ireland
Branches will close in all of the 32 counties in Ireland and Northern Ireland.
On Monday morning, Bank of Ireland confirmed that it will close 103 of its branches across Ireland and Northern Ireland.
The move comes after the bank agreed a new partnership with An Post, which will offer Bank of Ireland customers banking services at more than 900 locations across Ireland.

Francesca McDonagh, Group CEO of Bank of Ireland said:"Technology is evolving, and customers are using branches less, year on year on year. Covid-19 has accelerated this changing behaviour, and we’ve seen a seismic shift towards digital banking over the past 12 months.
"We’ve now reached a tipping point between online and offline banking. Our mobile app is our most popular way to bank, with almost half a million customer logins every day and traffic up by a third in the past two years. Seven in 10 personal customer product applications are made digitally, and we expect this to grow to over eight in 10 by the end of this year.
"In contrast, the number of people visiting branches has sharply declined, and is now just over half of what it was in 2017. Footfall at the branches which are closing is down even more, by c.60% since 2017.
"That’s why we’ve announced changes to our branch network. However, through a new partnership with An Post, we continue to protect local access to physical banking for those who want it while also operating a nationwide branch network of 169 locations. Combined, our customers will be able to bank at about 1,100 locations nationwide.
"We know news like this can cause concern for some customers, and for the communities that we serve. We’re not making these changes immediately – no branches will close in the next six months."
