AIB Rural Ireland Offices Downgrade – A Deplorable Act – Danny Healy Rae, TD

“This action by the AIB will leave many people in Kerry without cash,” Danny Healy Rae, TD.

Deputy Danny Healy Rae has condemned yesterday’s announcement by the Allied Irish Bank of the downgrading of branches throughout rural Ireland as a deplorable act.

“This action by the AIB will leave many people in Kerry without cash. This impacts five branches of AIB in Kerry-  Kenmare, Castleisland, Killorglin, Cahersiveen and Dingle,” said Deputy Danny.

Cash to Survive

“Many people still use and need cash to survive.

“Many businesses, farmers, tradesmen and elderly people won’t be able to manage and won’t be able to get change or make lodgements.

“This will be set families and households up for more robberies.

“The Government has already closed a lot of post offices and they still want to close more of them.

All Raving or What?

“Now they are downgrading the banks and telling us to go to the post offices, are they all raving or what?

“The Government has a large share in the bank. Why is the Government totally silent on this?

“I am calling on the Minister for Finance Paschal Donohoe and the Government to step in as everyone is still paying for bailing out the banks in 2009,” said Deputy Danny.
