Cash Only

Popped to the local Spar and they are cash only as the card readers aren’t working. The chap behind the counter said its citywide. Are we under attack!

Spar card readers in Galway not working either as of 6:15pm this evening.

Same in ballyragget today

Cash only in the centra on the South Douglas Road. It’s happening gents…

Its nationwide. Just AIB tho I think

Centra on Gort Road you couldn’t tap but inserting card worked

Nothing wrong with a cash world lads… drink it in!

Same on my local shop. Massive server gone down in UK apparently

Had to put back a basket of goods at the shop earlier. Drove up to the other shop and had do the same. Dunno what would have happened if I’d filled the car with petrol.

You’d have had to drop your pants cowboy

No fear of that I’d say

Did the shop offer you no alternative? Local shop surely tell you call back in the morning with the cash no

I can confirm I was able to buy a headlamp bulb using a debit card earlier today. However the system for issuing receipts was down so my purchase was scribbled into a big book.

Ffs And I’m just after burying a bag of cash from my Cheltenham winnings in a field.


I think it was @TheUlteriorMotive described a similar place that was either a Chinese or a Chipper in Ranelagh. They’d never had a card reader and then during the first lockdown put a sign up that said ‘Card Machine out of order, Cash Only’ or something like that.


The Chinese takeaway in Irishtown is cash only, no card machine.
