London & Dublin Bank Ltd
London & Dublin Bank Ltd (1843-7) was a past constituent of The Royal Bank of Scotland.
London & Dublin Bank commenced business in 1843 as a non-note issuing institution. Its aim was to compete with the Bank of Ireland in the Dublin area, where that bank held a note issuing monopoly. The monopoly was lifted, however, with the passing of the Bankers (Ireland) Act 1845, and shortly afterwards, in 1848, London & Dublin Bank was absorbed by National Bank of Ireland. The bank’s directors continued to meet after the takeover to settle outstanding debts.
