Ulster Bank is set to shut the doors to new customers for a host of its banking products later this week, as it enters the next stage of its departure from the Irish market.

The bank first announced that it would exit the Republic back in February, although it had been signposted some time in advance of this date. Thus far, banking customers haven’t had to do much, unless it was at their own behest.
