Important information on using Notice to make withdrawals from your account:

If you are transferring funds to another Bank of Ireland account, the transfer takes place on the day after the notice period expires. This means Day 32 for an Optimum Account

If collecting funds from a branch, your withdrawal will remain available for 5 working days after the notice period expires. If not collected in this time, a new notice instruction will be required and a new notice period served before the funds become available again.
