Bank of Ireland closures blow to workers and customers

Slieve Gullion area Sinn Féin Councillor Aoife Finnegan has said the announcement by Bank of Ireland that the Crossmaglen Branch which is one of the 103 branches across the country which will close, is a huge blow to the local economy but first and foremost to the workers and their families.

The local Councillor said:

“This announcement by Bank of Ireland is a huge blow to our local economy. My thoughts first and foremost are with the workers impacted and their families. It is always difficult to get such news but this is a very challenging time in the middle of a pandemic.

Newry and Armagh MLA Cathal Boylan commenting on the news that the Keady Branch would also close, expressing his disappointment and concern said,

“Bank of Ireland must engage fully with its workers and their representatives as this unfolds

All efforts must be made to redeploy workers and reskilling opportunities should be made available to support workers.

A Sinn Féin delegation will be meeting with Bank of Ireland and the Financial Services Union to discuss these closures and their impact in full.”
