Bank of Ireland is moving to quell the panic caused by the discovery of a skimming device at an ATM in Knocknacarra yesterday.
Customers do not need to cancel their cards after all, according to the bank
The bank has anti-skimming software built into it’s pass machines so no details were stolen from it’s customers despite the discovery of a skimming device.
Salthill Gardai removed the suspect device and camera from the Bank of Ireland ATM at Joyces’ supermarket at 6 last evening.
The ATM is back in service this morning and is totally safe to use.
Panicked customers have since been inundating the bank’s helpline trying to cancel their cards.
But Bank of Ireland Manager of Group ATM’s Ray Clarke says there’s no cause for alarm.

Concerns have been raised over traffic delays at the railway crossing in Oranmore.
Councillor Jim Cuddy says he has received many representations from local motorists who have been experiencing extended delays.
He says the closed barrier can sometimes cause a traffic tailback as far as the roundabout near the Maldron hotel.
Cllr Cuddy has brought the matter to the attention of Iarnrod Eireann and has asked for an explanation as to why the crossing is closed for so long.
