Bank of Ireland confirmed this evening it is investigating another 
allegation of a stolen laptop.

It's understood the laptop was stolen in County Kildare in 2001, and 
contained details of several thousand life assurance customers.

It's also understood that although the theft was reported to line 
management at the bank, customers were not informed.

In a statement released this evening, Bank of Ireland said it would like 
to reassure customers that the risk level of any data from seven years 
ago being used for fraudulent purposes is extremely remote.
