Bank of Ireland offers 'profuse apology' for wages blunder

Bank of Ireland has said that customers of the bank and other institutions who did not receive their wages today will have their cash tomorrow.

Bank of Ireland said that a delay with a payments file has delayed credits going into some customers' accounts.

However, the file includes payments from the public-sector body which handles payroll for the vast majority of public sector workers.

A spokeswoman for Bank of Ireland said the bank offered a "profuse apology" to the workers affected.

She said the bank could assure people that the problems would be solved today, and that wages would arrive in workers' accounts first thing tomorrow morning.

It is understood that tens of thousands of public servants were not been paid today.

Workers at a number of private companies are also reporting that they have not been paid.
