ULSTER Bank has confirmed the closure of 22 branches on the island with four of them to go in Cavan.

Eleven of the offices are located in the Republic, with those to be shut made up of five branches and six smaller sub-offices to go.

The other 11 are in the North.

All the branches are set to close by the summer - exactly a year since Ulster Bank was paralysed when its computer system crashed.

Ulster Bank announced in January 2012 it would cut 950 jobs, with 600 positions lost in the Republic.

Banking union the IBOA said it was not expected that any further job losses will come about as a result of confirmation of the closures.

Among those earmarked for closure by May include branches in Belturbet, Killeshandra and Kilnaleck in Co Cavan; Castlepollard in Co Westmeath; and Glenamaddy, Co Galway.

Sub offices in Carrigallen in Co Leitrim, Swanlinbar in Co Cavan will also go, along with Delvin, Co Westmeath; Kilcormac, Co Offaly; Kilkelly, Co Mayo; and Rathangan, Co Kildare.
