Allied Irish Banks has suffered a second technical issue in as many days, disrupting services for customers.

The bank said its systems were affected for less than 30 minutes on Friday morning but were quickly back up and running less than 24 hours after the first interruption.

"Everything is working normally," a spokeswoman for AIB said.
