Banked

Ireland is an interesting mix of old and new, developed and undeveloped. Some aspects of it are cutting edge, up there with the best in the world. But banks, oh boy. They are not open on weekends at all, only Monday to Friday. Even then many close for lunch and the hours are just 9am to 4pm. So you are screwed if you have a job and need to use the bank. The pay-off for me is that they are cheap, really cheap. Most transactions are free or just 20 cents. Coming from South Africa, where a recent report showed that South African banks are the most expensive in the world, this is a good thing.
