KBC Bank Ireland will officially open the doors to its newest retail banking hub in Maynooth at 10.00am on Saturday 22nd November 2014. Bringing greater competition and choice to Ireland’s university town, KBC has lined up a fun-filled morning of activities and special guests at the new hub in Manor Hills Shopping Centre to welcome customers and mark the occasion.

RTE Radio personality Brenda Donohue will be MC for the morning’s activities, which include a special guest appearance from former international and Leinster rugby star Shane Horgan. Shane will be on hand to sign autographs, take pictures and participate in a special sports Q&A with Brenda. There will be complimentary refreshments and plenty to keep the kids busy with free face painting, a play area, drawing station, competitions and games throughout the morning. Look out for the KBC minis which will be traversing the town, offering a lift to local people to check out the new hub! 

Michael Dixon,  Manager of KBC’s Maynooth Hub, said “We are excited to be opening KBC’s new hub in Maynooth. The preparations are well underway for our opening event, which promises a very warm welcome for customers. I would encourage people from the town and surrounding areas to come along, meet the KBC team in person and see for themselves what makes KBC one of the most innovative consumer retail banks in Ireland today."
