I don't know about Eire, but in England you either need a bank acct or a Post office to pay a Barclaycard. The number of POs has dropped dramatically.

The number of standalone PO's has dropped dramatically. But, the number of corner shops offering PO services has increased dramatically.

Yeah, maybe it's different here but all banks here will let you have a credit card without having an account.

There are pay as you go debit cards in the UK. They are just not that well known.

Another Spanish bank is on the brink:

Don Quijones: Another Spanish Bank Teeters at the worst possible time

Don Quijones wrote:
Here’s what that profile looks like:
•The bank’s capital expansion will represent 55% of its operating capital, based on Wednesday’s share price, which has crumbled 20% in the last two days.
•Liberbank’s non-performing loans ratio is a staggering 22%. Worse still, the vast bulk of the bank’s unproductive assets are real estate investments. After the now defunct Popular, it is the Spanish entity with most exposure to toxic real estate assets, according to the financial daily El Confidencial — a remarkable feat given the bank already had the lion’s share of its impaired real estate assets transferred onto the balance sheets of Spain’s “bad bank,” Sareb.
•By the close of the first quarter of 2017, Liberbank’s default rate had reached 13%, compared to the national average of 9.8%, while its unproductive asset coverage rate was just 43%, compared to 47% for Banco Sabadell, 48% for Bankia, 50% for CaixaBank and 55% for Unicaja.
