A LOT OF Bank of Ireland customers are unhappy this morning after waking up to find their wages haven’t hit their bank accounts yet.

Christmas time has drained some customers’ funds and the delay in getting paid is not going down well, especially with those complaining that their direct debits are now going to bounce.

A lot of customers have taken to Twitter to air their dissatisfaction.

The bank said payments are being processed as normal today and should hit accounts at some point throughout the day.

This is not the first time the bank has been criticised for delayed payments. A similar situation happened in April and October of this year.

In a statement to TheJournal.ie Bank of Ireland said:

Payments are up to date having processed overnight and through the early morning. All payments due were applied to customer accounts before 9am. Payments are also processing normally throughout the day, and we always advise customers that payments do credit over the course of the day.
