Ulster Bank closed its Navan branch and all of their remaining 63 branches across the Republic of Ireland.
Navan was the last Meath remaining branch after Trim, Kilcock, and Ardee branches closed in January before being reopened as Permanent TSB banks. 14 of its branches, including Athboy and Ashbourne, closed in 2015.
ATM services have also stopped but customer services and support is still continuing to help customers move and close their accounts.
Ulster Bank has reduced their branch services in phases since January 2021 with branch transactions seeing a 99 percent reduction since then.
“As the closure of current and deposit accounts materially concludes, I strongly urge any remaining customer who has not yet moved their current and deposit account to act swiftly to find a new provider and move their accounts,” Ulster Bank Chief Executive Jane Howard said. “Although our branches will no longer be open after today, we are still here to support our remaining customers.”
They are expected to put the 31 branch buildings they own up for sale before the end of the year, but said it would be next year at the earliest before returning its licence to the Central Bank.
