With as many as one-in-four bank branches set to close, we’re asking you if you use online banking or still prefer to visit your local branch.

IT IS REPORTED today that as many as one-in-four bank branches across the country are to close as part of a massive shake-up in retail banking.

The Irish Independent reports that AIB, EBS, Bank of Ireland, Ulster Bank and Permanent TSB are all targeting branch closures as more and more customers turn to the internet to carry out their banking.

The emergence of online banking means that customers can carry out most of their financial transactions without having to visit their bank’s local branch. But there are concerns about internet penetration in rural areas while the recent problems at Ulster Bank that have forced many to use their local branch rather than online banking will not have inspired confidence in the so-called banking of the future.

So today we want to know do you use online banking?


Poll Results:

Yes, for all my banking needs (1256)
I use both (1121)
No, I still go to my branch (1096)
Don't have a bank account (755)
