Durrow to get new ATM – Fleming

Sean Fleming T.D., Minister of State at the Department of Finance with special responsibility for Credit Unions is pleased to announce that Durrow is to get a new ATM machine.  

St. Canice’s Credit Union in Durrow will install a new on-street ATM on their Credit Union building in Durrow.

“This is great news and I want to thank the Credit Union for this important initiative, not only for their own members but it will also benefit everybody in Durrow and the surrounding areas and all people who require an ATM service while in Durrow.”

“In the meantime, the existing Bank of Ireland ATM will continue in operation until the Credit Union ATM is in place. The Credit Union is now applying immediately for planning permission for this new ATM.”

“Last September Bank of Ireland closed a number of their branches throughout the country. This resulted in four towns being left with no ATM service. Durrow was one of these four towns.”

“I immediately contacted Bank of Ireland about maintaining an ATM service in the town. Separately I met with the senior management in St. Canice’s Credit Union and asked them to provide ATM facilities in Durrow, which they have agreed to do. This positive response from the Credit Union is acknowledged and appreciated.”

“Bank of Ireland has also agreed to maintain their current ATM service in Durrow until such time as the Credit Union ATM is operational.”

“This is important news for everyone in the area and I am pleased with this good outcome.”

“Finally, I urge all people to use their local Credit Union. I encourage people who are not members to join their local Credit Union as they provide excellent community based services and are the most trusted brand name in Ireland.”
