Bank of Ireland Alumni Network

Welcome message from Francesca McDonagh, Group CEO

In this short video, Francesca McDonagh, Group CEO, announces the establishment of a new Alumni Network for Bank of Ireland and explains why it is important for colleagues past and present.

Our purpose is to enable our customers, colleagues and communities to thrive and one of the most important communities we have is our Alumni. Colleagues working in the Bank today are part of a much wider Bank of Ireland family who want to stay connected with former colleagues and friends. So, whether you’ve spent your entire career with the Bank or worked here for a part of it, we’re keen to help you stay connected and keep you up to date. Please join our Alumni Network and get involved.


Age Action Positive Ageing Week

Bank of Ireland are headline sponsors for Age Actions Positive Ageing Week for the 4th year. The theme chosen for 2019 is ‘Ageing in Place’. Age Action will be running a number of events nationwide during Positive Ageing Week and will be focusing on how best to enable older people to remain in their homes and/or communities and live as independently as possible for as long as they wish. Bank of Ireland will host 6 events during Positive Ageing Week focusing on some innovative solutions to support ageing in place and launching our Financial Wellbeing programme for Seniors to help address the financial concerns and barriers that often contribute to a reduction in choice of older people when choosing where they wish to age. The Bank of Ireland events will run nationwide on the following dates:

  • Dublin – Sept 30th
  • Limerick – October 1st
  • Ballina – October 3rd
  • Wexford – October 10th
