One of the country's larger banks has told to its customers that it is to stop handling cash in its branches.
National Irish Bank says it is moving to a Scandinavian model of "cashless banking" - with an increased reliance on ATMs and debit cards.
NIB has told customers that its branches will no longer handle cash withdrawals or lodgements, nightsafe lodgements or foreign exchange cash.
They are instead urging customers to use ATMs or get cash back on their laser cards if they need notes. Branches will continue to accept cheques and postal orders.'
Easy, Just close your account and move elsewhere where they do handle cash, if all customers closed their accounts then they would soon go back to taking cash
