Bank of Scotland (Ireland) Limited was a bank based in Ireland and a wholly owned subsidiary of the Bank of Scotland, itself a subsidiary of Lloyds Banking Group. It offered commercial and corporate banking services under the Bank of Scotland brand and retail banking services under the Halifax brand. Since 10 February 2010 the bank has no longer accepted new business, and ceased to operate as a licensed bank on 31 December 2010. The assets of the bank were merged into Bank of Scotland plc.
The company was founded in 1965 as Equity Bank Limited. In 1999 it was purchased by the Bank of Scotland. Later, the parent company established its own brand in the Irish market through the direct sales of mortgages from Edinburgh. Following this, it was decided to rebrand the existing Irish operation as Bank of Scotland (Ireland) in 2000.
