A public meeting will be held in Gallen Community School on Thursday 6th December, at 7pm to discuss the planned closure of Ulster Bank, Ferbane Branch in March 2015. The meeting is being organised by the community in order to gain support and mount a campaign to reverse this decision. The withdrawel of financial services from Ferbane would have a highly negative impact on the whole West Offaly region. All are encouraged to attend as a strong community representation will be vital to its successful outcome. Account holders with Ulster Bank in particular are strongly encouraged to attend.
