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 Celebrations

As Tipperary Credit Union are celebrating 50th years of serving our members this year, we have various events planned for 2017.  We are encouraging all our members to particpate in the various activties. We will be running  competitions and Open Days, so please check our website and follow us on Facebook and Twitter where we will be keeping you up to date on any future event planned.

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.

Actively involved in the community

We at Tipperary Credit Union take an active role in the community and often get involved in charity events- be it fundraising via a Quiz night or taking part in local events to raise money for local charities.

Secondary Schools Programme

Our Secondary Schools Programme is an extension of our Primary Schools Saving Scheme. This allows students who have been involved with our School Savings Scheme to continue to save on a regular basis with the Credit Union. It also affords those who are not yet members the opportunity to join the Credit Union and get involved.

We currently have a credit union operating in St Anne’s Secondary School. This is run by the transition year students. The students must prepare a CV if applying for a position in the credit union. After the interview process students are selected to operate the credit union for the year. They are given the training, tools and a budget for promotions to run it for the school year. With our Secondary Schools Programme students have the added benefit of gaining valuable work experience in different roles within the Credit Union as the Schools Credit Union is run by a number of students as opposed to Parents/Teachers. Students will gain experience in the following roles:

  • Chairperson
  • Secretary
  • Treasurer
  • Manager
  • Marketing & Development
  • Teller

If you are a teacher, a parent or a student in any secondary school in our common bond and are interested in having a Credit Union in your school, or would like some more information about the scheme, please contact Tipperary Credit Union on 062 80400

Schools Savings Scheme

Tipperary Credit Union with the co-operation of the Principal and teachers of the local primary schools operate a school saving scheme for all the children. The main aim of the saving scheme is to encourage the children to adopt a regular savings habit and thereby to sow the seeds of good financial management for the future.

The scheme operates as follows:

  • Tipperary Credit Union comes to the school and gives a presentation to the children on the benefits of savings.
  • The children get to meet Beanie our mascot for saving.
  • The school are then issued with Beanie Saving Stamps.
  • school employee is responsible for collecting and issuing the Beanie Stamps to the children.
  • The stamps prove very effective as the children can see the fruits of their hard saving when they stick their stamps into their stamp book.
  • The stamps are €1 each and a full book contains €25.
  • The students can only cash in their stamps at their local Tipperary Credit Union branch.

If your primary school is interested in joining our Schools Savings Scheme contact our Head Office on (062) 80400
