The Credit Union is run for the mutual benefit of the members so you get a fair deal with us, not forgetting you get to be part of a movement of nearly 3 million Irish people who have came together to achieve financial well-being and a better way of life, not just for themselves, but for their families and their community as a whole.
Members who cannot make it into our office as often as they may like can set up a standing order from their bank account to transfer money to their savings or as a loan repayment.
However it is the responsibility of the member to ensure that their bank account is in credit at all times otherwise their standing order will cease.
We will buy/sell currency notes, we keep Sterling, US Dollars and Australian Dollars in stock, other currencies can be ordered on request and we aim to have them within 2 working days.
Click & Collect
Credit Union members can now order foreign currency online and collect it at your local Credit Union via the – “Click & Collect” Service: http://www.fexcocurrency.com/
Members can now have salaries, social welfare/pensions paid directly into their credit union account via their own BIC/IBAN. Please contact the office for details.
You can also transfer funds from your credit union account to your bank account, funds to be in your account next working day, subject to cut-off times. All we ask is that you have your bank details to hand when you call to our office.
You can lodge money to your savings or make a loan repayment using your laser/visa debit card in our office or by telephone. (Minimum €10 payment)
