Volunteer with your local Credit Union
At the heart of every credit union is its volunteers. The Board of Directors of every credit union is drawn from members who have the skills and knowledge to lead and manage the long-term success of the credit union.
Mallow Credit Union now has 8 branches open across their Common Bond area, with 2 in Mallow (Main Street & Ballydaheen), Millstreet, Buttevant, Doneraile, Charleville, Dromcollogher and Broadford. There are a number of voluntary positions open on their Board of Directors, the Oversight Committee & Planning & Development Committee and they would like to invite members of the community to apply. These committees provide experience, learning and an active role within the credit union.
Mallow Credit Union relies on the enthusiasm and commitment of volunteers who give their time freely to develop and enhance the services of their credit union.
In return for volunteering, credit union volunteers are afforded the opportunity to;
- Become responsible for directing the affairs of a local business
- Gain new skills and experience with a professional financial services provider
- Enhance personal development through targeted training programmes
- Increase career prospects by adding a valuable achievement to CVs
- Meet like-minded people from the community
- Know that they have helped the continued development of a professional service which benefits the entire community.
Finance, information technology, management and communications skills are particularly welcome. However, any ability to make a contribution is appreciated. There are policies and training in place to support volunteers in their roles.
If volunteering with Mallow Credit Union sounds like something you might be interested in learning more about please call into your local branch or email: <email@example.com>.

Every success in the years ahead and long may the spirit of Nora Herlihy continue in true evidence. Here we share images from the wonderful occasion on Friday night.

A move that will see Mallow Credit Union Limited merge with Buttevant & Doneraile Credit Union Limited, Dromcollogher Credit Union Limited and Millstreet Parish Credit Union Limited has been announced.
All four credit unions, which combined have seven branch offices (Buttevant, Doneraile, Dromcollogher, Broadford, Mallow, Ballydaheen, and Millstreet) have been in discussion about the possibility of a coming together over the last year. As talks have progressed, each credit union undertook a strict examination of each other’s finances, governance, procedures and policies, and satisfied themselves as to the strengths and merits of this merger. The coming together of these four credit unions, known as a ‘Transfer of Engagements’ under the transferee, Mallow Credit Union, will result in a stronger and more vibrant credit union with increased membership.

Up to the 1990’s Jerry O’Riordan’s was one of a number of grocery shops in the Square in Millstreet. In June 2003 the three houses at the corner of the square which made up the shop and store were to be demolished to make way for the new credit union. Seán Radley was on hand to take photos of the demolition and at the time were published on what was then for a short time, the Millstreet website (millstreet.20m.com).
