Friday, 10th August 2018 marked the historic 50th Anniversary Celebrations of Millstreet Parish Credit Union. The magnificent occasion began with the celebration of Mass by Fr. Paddy O’Byrne in St. Patrick’s Church, Millstreet with the participation of many Credit Union Committee Members in the special liturgy enhanced by Millstreet Parish Choir. Dermot Kiely with Ted Kiely then unveiled a very impressive plaque at the Credit Union H.Q. in The Square. Then followed a most enjoyable evening of refreshments, speeches, a special Draw and lots of memories evoked in the Wallis Arms Hotel. We extend sincere congratulations to All who have given so generously of their time, talents and dedication over the past decades where friendliness, support and sound advice have been hallmarks of our very own Millstreet Parish Credit Union. 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. (And some more pictures to follow later.) Click on the images to enlarge. (S.R.)
Strength in numbers Credit Union merger announced for North Cork and Limerick
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).
