Bank of Ireland announces arrival of Android app

Just three weeks after the successful launch of its iPhone app, Bank of Ireland is delighted to announce that its mobile banking app is now available for Android users.  The addition of the Android app will enable even more of the Bank’s 500,000 personal registered online customers to bank on the go.

Commenting on the announcement, Gavin Kelly, Head of Direct Channels, Bank of Ireland, said:
