Calls For Council To Take Over Soon-To-Be Vacant Bank Building

The branch is due to be shut this Friday.

A midlands councillor is calling for the Bank of Ireland building in Moate to be purchased for public use. 

The branch is due to be shut this Friday.

Fine Gael's Tom Farrell feels the premises should be bought to prevent it becoming derelict.

Although funding has not yet been allotted, some local reps are suggesting it could be converted into an enterprise hub or a co-working space. 

Councillor Farrell says it would be a great boost to enterprise in the town.
