Uh-oh! Bank Of Ireland cards are experiencing ‘technical difficulties’

by

If you're buying food today, or trying to top-up your Leap Card, or pay a bill you might run into a spot of trouble if you're a Bank Of Ireland customer. 

That's because the bank is experiencing 'technical difficulties,' and a lot of its cards simply aren't working. 

Twitter today has been flooded with frustrated folk who claim that they're unable to access funds via ATM withdrawals or electronic visa debit payments.

The institute said in a statement today: “We are aware some customers are experiencing technical difficulties using their visa debit cards. Please be assured we’re looking into it, and apologise for the inconvenience.”

The Irish Times reports that Bank Of Ireland’s stock was the worst hit by Brexit on the Irish stock market on Friday, having been down 25 per cent at one stage. Bank Of Ireland takes close-to a third of its earnings from the UK.
