    Default National Irish Bank closes ALL 27 of its branches and rebrands as Danske Bank

    National Irish Bank closes 27 its branches and rebrands as Danske Bank - RT News

    It's the end of banks on the main street - regardless of the state of the economy it was going to happen.

    Haven't been in a bank in years.

    Could be a great opportunity for An post though - might save them.

    Banks all over the world are trying to move their customers onto different channels (Internet, Phone, Mobile, etc). However there is still huge worth in talking to their customers face to face, that's how they crosssell. So the bank branch still has a role to play. A lot of banks are rejigging their branch layouts though, so that the "relationship" emphasis is front and center, and the service aspect is pushed to the background. Bank of Ireland are actually looking at this at the moment.

    Less than 7 years ago, the ESB (ESB Retail) sold many of it's offices to Bank of Scotland Ireland (BOSI), so that it (BOSI) could open a branch network here in this country.

    Changed times utterly in banking throughout Ireland.
    Politics.ie moderators should moderate instead.
