Also strange that the 2.8% isn't being advertised even though anecdotally, we see a lot of posters here have got it (or just offered it).

"Bank of Ireland is also increasing its five-year and 10-year fixed rates, a move that reflects the fact that it expects European Central Bank rates to start moving up in the next year or so."

There is absolutely no connection to ECB rates.
All banks hedge their fixed rates in the market. It is cheaper today than a year ago to hedge 5 and 10 year rates.

I've said before. The only driver of interest rate changes in the past few years is competition. After the rate increase, it's still the cheapest 10 year rate, even without factoring cashback.

BoI have recently offered me 3.0% on one-, two- and three-year rates.

I pushed very hard, making three phone calls and telling them that I would switch, but the best they would give me was 2.8%.

What about the 5 year though, they've now made it less attractive relative to EBS considering they both offer the same cashback now. If anything I'd have thought they'd drop the 5 year rate also since EBS recently upped their cashback to 3%.
