Sinn Féin councillor Sean McGlinchey has slammed the decision by Ulster Bank to close its Dungiven premises.

Cllr. McGlinchey said “The word today that the local branch is to close next year along with a number of others across the North is a hard blow to the town.”

“Dungiven Main Street has seen a serious decline in the last number of years and this closure will mean there will be no banks in the town. People will now have to travel to Limavady, a 20 mile or more round trip, for their nearest bank which shows how the banks are abandoning rural areas.”

“This is very upsetting on a number of levels, the disruption to the people who use the bank and its services, another empty building on main street and local jobs could be moved miles away or lost completely.”

I have contacted the Dungiven branch seeking a meeting to ensure that alternative banking services are put in place, that the ATM service is retained and that local jobs are protected.

Cllr. McGlinchey was in the process of arranging a meeting with businesses in the town on Monday night coming at 7pm in the Sinn Fein office on a number of issues. The banks closure will now be included in the discussion and all are welcome to attend
