New KBC Bank Hub opens on Eyre Square

KBC Bank Ireland this week opened its newest retail banking hub on Eyre Square in Galway City.

The new KBC Bank hub is the latest in a scheduled eight branch expansion taking place across Ireland over the coming 18 months. 

The new hub is a departure from the ‘high countered environment’ commonly associated with traditional branch banking, which has been replaced with a more informal, relaxed meeting space where customers can interact with KBC’s personal finance experts on a range of competitive products including savings, insurance, mortgages, and the recently launched current account.

The retail hub will be managed by Keith McDonagh who will oversee the team. KBC’s office on Dock Road will remain open for corporate banking customers.

The new hub will open from Monday to Friday between 9am and 5.30pm, with late opening on Thursdays (until 7pm) to facilitate customers and their busy schedules. This latest hub opening follows the opening of retail banking hubs in Dublin, Cork and Limerick earlier this year.

As part of the current account launch KBC is also running a current account student promotion, with €100 One4All vouchers for students opening an account for a limited time.

Galway is leading the way with community benefit investment from wind farms – receiving €831,860 out of the national total of almost €3.5m last year.

That’s according to the second annual community benefit report from the Irish Wind Energy Association shows Galway moving to the top of the pile, having been second nationally in 2018 with communities benefitting to the tune of €383,500.

Across the country, energy efficiency projects and third level scholarships, sports clubs, active retired groups and local festivals were just some of the schemes to benefit from almost €3.5 million in community investment from Irish wind farms in 2019. The figures were released this week in a new report from the Irish Wind Energy Association.

The report identified the top five counties for wind energy community benefit funding.

Galway leads the way with €831,860, followed by Cork on €424,740, Roscommon on €334,600, Tipperary on €258,700 and Limerick on €243,250.

Part of that comes from Galway Wind Park, managed by SSE Renewables in conjunction with their partners Greencoat Renewables, which runs a third-level scholarship fund for students from the locality.

New chapter…FIX Auto Head of Operations Trevor Lee (left) with Frank Byrnes.

Ownership may have changed, but both the old and new at Frank Byrnes Autobody Repairs – now part of FIX Auto – are guaranteeing that the traditional commitment to service and excellence will remain exactly the same.

Following an announcement in early November that FIX Auto and NOVUS Glass had acquired Frank Byrnes Autobody Repairs in Oranmore, Head of Operations Trevor Lee said this week that he was excited to prepare facility to become the hub of FIX Auto operations in the north west of Ireland.

“Frank Byrnes is fitting into the global FIX Auto network quickly and smoothly, thanks in the main to the diligence and hard work of the original Frank Byrnes team, who have been as dedicated as ever to the quality of their work and the satisfaction of their customers,” he said.

“The group have been particularly welcoming to all of us from FIX Auto and an absolute pleasure to work alongside the last few weeks.”

The Oranmore operation – a mainstay of manufacturer and insurer approved repairer networks for the past 17 years – was purchased by Managed Automotive Repair Networks Limited (MARN) and is set to become an integral part of Fix Auto global network of close to one thousand repairers.
