Important information

An overdraft is repayable on demand and may not be exceeded without prior permission. If you exceed your limit, surcharge interest plus debit interest will be applied to any amount over the authorised limit. A set up fee of €25 applies and other charges may also apply. Please see A guide to personal accounts fees and interest for details.  

We may carry out credit scoring, where we assess whether credit is affordable for you based on the information you provide.
