NIB shuts all branches

NATIONAL Irish Branch has closed its 27 branches around the country and rebranded as Danske Bank.

NIB customers now have to use post offices, phone or internet banking, or use one of the bank's new small advisory centres to conduct their banking business.

About 100 staff are leaving under a voluntary redundancy scheme because of the branch closures.

Danske Bank Advisory Centres will be open in nine locations next week, where customers can meet advisors face-to-face.
