Waterford Chamber Mayor Wyse opens new AIB self-service lobby


ayor of Waterford City and County Council, Cllr Adam Wyse, cut the ribbon on the new self-service

lobby at AIB Bank, The Quay, at a Corporate evening co-hosted with Waterford Chamber. The new self-service lobby is now open

364 days of the year from 8am to 9pm and is a significant move marking another import- ant milestone in the bank’s customer-led strategy.

Speaking at the event Waterford Chamber

President Laurent Borla said: “The invest- ment by AIB Bank shows their commitment to Waterford and I’m led to believe the branch here on the Quay is only one of a select few who have been approved for such a modern and dynamic transformation”. Over the past number of years, AIB Bank

has transformed its business to be more focussed on customer needs, with flexible banking hours, the latest in in-branch tech- nologies and significant improvements in mobile and online banking. AIB Bank Branch Manager Marian Keane

thanked the invited guests for their atten- dance and continued custom. She said, as a team, they are extremely pleased with the refurbishment and look forward to bringing the banking experience to a whole new level for the customer. “We are proud and delighted that our

Branch was one of the flagship branches to be chosen for this level of upgrade and we are one of 20 branches in the Country to have a Lobby with extended opening hours. This is thanks to the support of the people of Waterford and its environs who have supported AIB over many years.”

Festival are a GO, GO B

elieve it or not, Waterford City and County is one of the busiest festival regions in Ireland – FACT! The annual Waterford Council Festival

Budget distribution, took place at the first Plenary Council meeting of the year. Much of what was brought into the public gallery was of course discussed, agreed and preordained, behind closed doors, in “secret” Committee Meetings. With circa €1,400,000 to be allocated across the whole City and County, this is one of the key functions of our 32 sitting Councillors. The breadth and variety of festivals and

events right across Waterford is something to behold. From Lismore to Tramore, Dunmore to Ardmore, Comeraghs to Dungarvan..... there are so many to choose from, that in reality we do not need to venture outside of our county boundary to find something that tickles our fancy. Circa 80 festivals/events were granted

some form of Council assistance. Ranging from a few hundred Euro, to hundreds of thousands of Euro. I suppose that the tricky part will be

encouraging all these festivals and events cross promote. Working together for the

betterment of the whole County and across the wider South East region. If we are to put our stamp on the festivals and events map then we need to shout collectively! Our cornerstone events would be the

Harvest Festival, West Waterford Food Festival, Spraoi and the Sean Kelly Tour (50km, 100km, and 160km cycling sportifs). In addition we can ALL, not just cyclists, look forward to the official opening of The Greenway on 25th March. Just look at what Galway espouses!

According to their blurb, they are Ireland’s only festival City – a hum!
