And it's even easier than that nowadays !
Your existing bank is, if asked, obliged to offer you an 'account
migration code' which you give to your new bank. This will effectively
migrate *all* your direct-debits, standing-orders etc to the new account
with minimum fuss.
More details from your local, friendly, regulator www.ifsra.ie or your
new bank (just ask for an account migration pack !)
As for linux support:
Both the personal offerings from AIB and BoI seem to work fine
in most browsers. I can't speak for the others. Business banking is
somewhat more complicated, partially I believe, due to requests from
many small businesses to support certain windows-based accounting
packages, which in turn requires the bank to have IE-only extensions to
their business sites.
