Allied Irish Bank produce two types of comma separated value statements. The Business Banking output is different from the Personal Banking statement. Both csv outputs have problems.
Both statements contain transaction descriptions that allow comma's. These cannot be converted easily via spreadsheet.
The Personal banking statement produces an 'amount' column which contains the transaction value in a more human friendly piece of text. For example 1400 will be shown as "1,400.00". Similar to the problem above, the additional comma separation causes issues.
