Permanent TSB hit by 'short-term' technical glitch

But don’t worry, it’s all fixed now.

A SMALL NUMBER of Permanent TSB customers were hit by a technical glitch earlier today resulting in their debit cards being declined.

A spokesperson for the bank described it as a “very short term issue”.

They said that the cards were inaccessible for ‘a minute or two’, but within that space of time as many as 200 transactions were affected.

“The issue has now been resolved,” the spokesperson added, “We apologise for any inconvenience caused to our customers.”

Earlier this year in July, the bank suffered a similar issue, leaving customers unable to pay in shops or withdraw money.

This issue lasted for a longer period of time, and affected more customers.
