Return Gaeilge Option to BOI ATMs

Return Gaeilge Option to BOI ATMs

Reversing this decision would be of little cost to Bank of Ireland but would be a significant symbolic gesture to Irish speakers right across the country.

Why is this important?

For many years, this Irish language option has been a very welcome addition to banking services in this country and it’s removal shows very little regard for those who use the Irish language daily and live in Gaeltacht areas.

The latest Census figures tell us that 190,276 people speak Irish every week. Initiatives like being able to take out cash as Gaeilge are a novel way of inserting the Irish language into your daily life.

Reasons for signing

  • The money of the Irish speakers who use this service was just as good to BofI as the money of those who don't use the service when we were ALL bailing out the banks not so long ago. Turning their backs on Irish speakers is an insult from an organisation which brought this country to the brink of disaster.
  • It saddens me that so little is thought of our heritage and language.
  • Scaip an achiní le bhúr dtoil!!
