St Patrick’s Weekend Celebrations

This year Tipperary Credit Union sponsored Tipperary Town’s St Patrick’s Day Parade and St Patrick’s Festival Food Market and Family Fun Day. With one of the wettest weekends we have had in a while (it was the really wet rain that fell, along with a wind that decided it would be of the blustery and cold kind) the spirits where still high. As this is our 50th year serving our community we decided to go all out for our St Patrick’s Day Parade.

50th Anniversary Flag Competition

Tipperary Credit Union is servicing the financial needs of our community for 50 years in 2017. To mark this wonderful achivement we asked our members to design a new flag for Tipperary Credit Union. This flag was launched in January 2017.

The winning design received €200.

A Flag’s purpose is to represent a place, organisation, or person. We wanted our flag to incorporate what Tipperary Credit Union means to the individual, the family and the community.

The theme of the Flag is “50 Years of Tipperary Credit Union”.

Pictured the winner Iobhar Stokes with Anna Tuohy Halligan (Director) and Pat Shanahan (CEO).

Iobhar’s flag really captured all elements of Tipperary Credit Union, and the attention to detail is amazing. Congratulations Iobhar from all at Tipperary Credit Union.
