Although the local Post Office will be providing financial services, locals have highlighted concerns over where they can access cash outside of regular business hours.

A North Longford councilor is calling for ATM services to be retained in Granard when Bank of Ireland close their branch in the town later this year.

Independent councilor Turlough McGovern is urging the council to engage with the bank to keep the service available to people across North Longford.

The bank is closing 88 branches in the Republic, and 15 in Northern Ireland due to a drop in customer demand.

Branches in Strokestown and Elphin in Roscommon as well as Drumshambo and Manorhamilton in Leitrim have also been earmarked for closure over the next year.

The bank has entered into a new partnership with An Post to offer banking services through Post Offices.

According to councilor McGovern, local businesses will suffer if customers cannot easily access cashpoints:
