Nationwide UK opens branch
Nationwide UK (Ireland) opened for business in March 2009 as a direct savings provider.
Part of the world's largest building society, it employs 21 people at its Spencer Dock offices in Dublin's IFSC where it operates a dedicated account opening and customer service centre.
Brendan Synnott, managing director of Nationwide UK (Ireland), said the opening of their first high street premises was a direct response to a growing demand from customers for a face-to-face service offering.
At the opening was Mr Synnott with broadcaster George Hook.
