Good morning all, just a quick question please. all advice greatly appreciated. I have savings in the credit union and h2b has them with Bank of ireland what we want to do is open one account to set up a standing order into for our savings each week.

We have been with Permenant TSB for the past 6 years, and Im deligted with them! Couldnt ask for more. We also have a joint account and a cheque book for this account which we use to pay suppliers. I find their Open 24 brilliant and you can do all your banking on line.

I second PTSB. We've been with them since we got our mortgage over a year ago and we've had no problems with them at all.We have a joint current account and a cheque book to go with it. Their online service is great too.

Theres no such thing as a good bank. I heard on the radio on Monday that AIB are about to introduce a 20% charge on Cash Back transactions - and these buggers make €millions per DAY. They're all robbers, but unfortunately necessary. I would second the aboe poster and check out Sorry for the ramp.

You cant have a cheque book on your savings account so IMO you will need to set up 2 accounts. We have our savings in Rabo and make nice interest on it. Then we have a current account and we transfer money into that regularly so that we can write cheques against it. You can transfer the money easily on line.
