FOUR Ulster Bank branches in Donegal are being bought today by Permanent TSB as part of a deal between the two.
Ulster Bank said today that it does not plan to close any branches in 2021, and said it does not anticipate closing any branches in the first half of 2022.
The branches in Ballybofey, Buncrana, Donegal Town and Killybegs are among the 25 branches involved in the deal.
Earlier this year Ulster Bank announced a phased withdrawal from the Republic of Ireland over the coming years that will be managed in an “orderly and considered manner”.
The bank said it will “proactively contact customers when they need to move bank and/or close accounts”.
“We will ensure that customers have ample time/notice periods as well as the support they need to complete the process,” Ulster Bank said.
