Thomastown Credit Union Limited is a financial co-operative with assets of €25 million founded in 1969, serving the communities of Thomastown, Bennettsbridge, Inistioge, Dungarvan, Ballyhale Knocktopher and Stoneyford.
We have a team of volunteers who are involved in setting the strategy for our credit union. We are not for profit. This means that we operate to provide for the needs of our membership. We provide savings, loans, and insurance products. All the surplus that is generated is returned to members: sponsoring our community clubs and groups, by setting a side in reserves for the future, & paying out a dividend and rebate to savers and borrowers.
We provide personal loans, business loans and community loans for all members. We also allocate sponsorship to different clubs and projects within our Common Bond, helping to develop communities. Working with clubs is an important part of our focus, and we have a specific Community Loan for Clubs who borrow for both large and small developments. We have a long association with Thomastown United AFC, and in more recent years with Bennettsbridge GAA, Kilfane Handball Club and Ballyhale GAA.
In addition to helping your community, serving on our various sub-committees and/or board will give you exposure and experience in a wide variety of business disciplines from formulating strategy to understanding risk in a regulated environment. It will also provide you with opportunities for training and development, all of which will stand to you in other areas of your career. All volunteers are subject to the normal fitness and probity regimes for credit unions as outlined by the Central Bank of Ireland.
