Credit Unions at the Heart of Every Community

Community 3 min read

01 Mar 2021

Friendly, personable, and face-to-face: it’s what members know and love most about their credit union. Credit unions offer a range of services to their members including, loans, savings, current accounts, debit cards, apps and online banking. Lately, with a huge increase in members requiring online and phone banking facilities, many credit unions have expanded or promoted existing services. More members can now transfer money and apply for loans online, via email, a mobile app or over the phone - so they can bank on the go, or from the comfort of their home.

With the unfortunate closure of 103 Bank of Ireland branches across the island of Ireland, we are once again reminded of the important role of the credit union sector. Credit unions, as established financially inclusive cooperatives, exist solely to meet the needs of their members.

Below we’ve listed the 103 credit unions who are open to meet the needs of their members in the locations affected by the bank branch closures recently announced. Bank customers can very quickly become members of their local credit union to avail of the range of services available. As well as the 103 locations below, there are credit unions in every community across Ireland. Find your local credit union today and become part of our story!
