2020 has been a challenge…to say the least! And the management of Mallow Credit Union wish to thank the staff and members for their support and co-operation over the past 5 months. Thanks to the staff, they were able to maintain normal office hours across all branches in Mallow (& Ballydaheen), Buttevant, Millstreet, Doneraile, Dromcollogher & Charleville and services were largely uninterrupted.

Kieran O’ Callaghan, Head of Lending said: “After receiving the green light from the Central Bank to increase our lending limit, we now have the opportunity to lend larger amounts to our members who wish to extend or improve their homes. So whether they’re planning on converting the attic or adding an extension, we’re in a position to do more for our members.”
