Withdrawal of Retail Banks from the Irish Market

If you are currently in the process of closing the current account your mortgage Direct Debit is paid from, you will need to update your Direct Debit so it is paid from your new current account. If you have not commenced the process to switch your current account, we would encourage you to engage with your retail bank to do this as soon as possible.

Information on switching bank accounts is available on the Citizens Information website

If you have queries in relation to your Direct Debit, please contact the Customer Support Team for Residential Loans on 0818 818 181 and for Commercial Loans on 0818 818 798.
