A third of Bank of Ireland branches will shut their doors for the final time today.
88 branches are closing as part of a move towards online transactions.
While other services will be offered via the Post Office.
In Mayo, branches will close their doors for the last time from today in Ballyhaunis, Kiltimagh and Charlestown.
The closure of the Ballyhaunis branch means that people will have to travel to Claremorris or Castlerea, both around 20km from Ballyhaunis.
A protest outside the Ballyhaunis bank is taking place this lunchtime by business interests to oppose the bank’s decision to close the branch.
Following the closure of Ulster Bank in Ballyhaunis five years ago, the Ballyhaunis chamber of commerce said the area was now being left without access to vital services.
President of the Chamber and business owner in the town Tom Forde says they want to find a solution to this problem.
Ann Cunnane who is the CEO of the Chamber says it’s a shocking decision by the bank.
