BOI mortgage rate hike.

BANK OF IRELAND and ICS Building society are to increase their mortgage rates. BOI will increase its variable rate by 0.45% and ICS by 0.6%. BOI says it has no further plans to increase its rates this year unless the ECB increases rates. The move follows Permanent TSB’s July rate hike.
