Following on from last Thursday's (2 August) public meeting in Collooney regarding the closure of the town's only bank, the Allied Irish Bank branch (See SligoToday.ie 2/8/12
) scheduled for October a meeting has been arranged with the bank's local management.
Politicians and activists will meet AIB's regional manager Peter Green in Sligo tomorrow (Wednesday at 10.30am) to highlight the effect of the bank's imminent closure on the town and region.
A bank source has told SligoToday.ie
that the meeting will make no difference to the bank's decision, "Its all about commercialism and the bank chiefs are only interested in the bottom line of the balance sheet, nothing else. The closure will go ahead as planned. This meeting is just a political ploy, its futile giving false hope to people" the source said.
The bank branch is believed to service a wide area which includes Geevagh, Carraroe, Ballisodare and Ballymote.
