Ulster Bank will today be urged to give a clear timeline for its exit from the Irish market.

The organisation will appear before the Oireachtas Finance Committee, on which sits Kildare North Fine Gael TD, Bernard Durkan.

It follows the announcement of its withdrawal from the Republic.

The bank has been here for 160 years and employs 2,800 people across the state, including at 5 branches in Kildare.

John O'Connell, from the Financial Services Union, will also appear before the committee - he wants a firm timeline on the bank's exit.
