International Credit Union Day

Credit Union Difference Celebrated on Historic International Credit Union Day

Tipperary Credit Union joins more than 68,800 credit unions around the world to celebrate the 70th annual International Credit Union Day(ICU Day) on October 18th next. In addition to being an important anniversary for the global movement, credit unions here are also celebrating 60 successful years of service in Ireland. To mark this significant milestones in Irish credit union history, this year’s ICU Day celebrations will focus on the unique financial services offered by credit unions.
The celebrations will revolve around the theme of the credit union difference”, putting people at the heart of everything we do, which has endured for the past six decades in Ireland. All credit unions remain not-for-profit institutions that operate independently. All credit union decisions on services, products and the future direction of the organisation are made at local level, and in the best interest of the local membership. Credit unions remain a trusted and reliable provider of affordable credit in the communities they serve. In short credit union members always come first, above all else.

To mark the occasion, Tipperary Credit Union is holding:
A Free Fun Quiz Night
• Where: Leahys Bar, Davis Street, Tipperary Town
• When: 9pm sharp on Thursday the 18th of October.
• Teams of four
• Loads of spots prizes on the night
