The bank said the changes will allow staff from temporarily closed branches to support the bank's larger branches and help contact centres manage the increased volume of customers requiring Covid-19 support, especially for mortgage and SME loan payment breaks.
The Bank of Ireland also said that all of its branches will continue to provide an external ATM cash withdrawal service.
Normal opening hours will continue in the branches that are open, the bank said.
These branches will also continue the provision of prioritised services for over 65's and carers between 10am and 11am, Monday to Friday.
The closed branches include college campus at universities and Institutes of Technology and hospital branches, which closed last week due to the increased public health restrictions in place at these locations.
Branches at Cork and Dublin airports are also closed. ■
