Ulster Bank officials to meet with community representatives in Raphoe and Ardara

Ulster Bank has agreed to meet community groups from Raphoe and Ardara to discuss the proposed closure of two bank branches there, according to Junior Minister Joe McHugh.

Minister McHugh met senior bank officials in Dublin earlier today to protest at the planned closure of the branches which was announced last week.

The Donegal representative says he has now secured a meeting between committees in both towns and senior Ulster Bank executives.
