Minister Noonan welcomes KBC commitment to Ireland's banking consumers

 

The Minister for Finance Michael Noonan T.D. welcomed the announcement that KBC will be remaining in Ireland and the helpful clarity for staff and customers alike after a period of uncertainty.

He said:

"This is another strong sign of the recovery in Ireland and shows confidence by KBC Ireland in the Irish economy."
