Keep cash services in Kilmallock, Limerick

People-power forced AIB to reverse their decision. AIB has said it has “decided not to proceed” with the proposed changes to its services that would have seen our AIB branch no longer process cash.

Stop the rollback of cash services in AIB bank branches in our local area.

Why is this important?

AIB is moving 70 of their branches to cashless banking. [1] Not only will going cashless mean no notes, coins, cheques, foreign exchange, bank drafts - it will remove any drop safes, night safes and ATMs outside.

This is going to cause huge hardship for many people - especially older and vulnerable people, local businesses, people who don’t have access to the internet.

The greed and recklessness of banks, including AIB bosses, played a crucial role in bringing about the financial crash. [2] Homes were repossessed by banks, families lost their incomes, young and not-so-young people were forced to emigrate, businesses had to close.

We cannot stand by while our majority state-owned bank hurts our communities again.
