Some time ago, Bank of Ireland closed its doors in Millstreet and now it’s the turn of A.I.B. They are not closing their doors but from October next they will only function as an office where you can discuss investments, open an account or take out a loan. The A.I.B. in Millstreet will be cashless, no A.T.M. inside the building or outside, no cash transactions whatsoever. The bank with no cash; it’s like the pub with no beer. We have been told that our nearest A.I.B. with cash is Macroom, twelve miles away. The local Post Office will take over some limited number of transactions.
UPDATE: ATM is now fully operational.
Please note that we have just now been alerted (Sat. 1st Aug. 2020) to the fact that when Customers arriving at AIB’s ATM in Church Street, Millstreet and inserting their Bank Card- their Bank Cards are Not Being Returned. The Bank is not scheduled to reopen until Tuesday. We shall publish an update if we are alerted to the fact that the problem is solved. UPDATE: The ATM is now fully closed. We thank the very kind Mary of “Guys & Dolls” who made contact with us. (S.R.)
