They have these in my local branch (Lucan) too. They are a REAL PITA. I
was discussing just how much of a PITA they are the other day with the
porter, and he informed me that they had trapped two villains in them.
They were observed outside the bank looking suspicious. When they came
into the airlock (for want of a better word) manual override was
selected from inside, and they were caught like bees in a jar.
This AIB is just across the road from Lucan Garda station, so they
can't have been the brightest villains in town.
