It's hoped a new 24 hour ATM service in Granard will be up and running before Christmas.
Permission was granted by Longford county planners this week for the installation of the machine.
The town has been left without a 24 hour cash point service following the closure of the local Bank of Ireland branch last month.
Plans submitted by the Irish branch of Euronet 360 Finance Ltd call for a new machine to be placed at the front of Granard Credit Union on Barrack Street in the town.

A similar application is currently being processed by Leitrim County Council for an ATM in Drumshanbo following the closure of their Bank of Ireland branch.
Chair of the Granard Credit Union, Kieran Rogers says the machine will help the public support local businesses in the run up to Christmas:
