International Credit Union Day

International Credit Union Day has been celebrated on the third Thursday of October since 1948. The day is recognized to reflect upon the credit union movement’s history and to promote its achievements. It is a day to honour those who have dedicated their lives to the movement, recognize the hard work of those working in the credit union industry and show members our appreciation.

Every year Tipperary Credit Union celebrates Mass for members past and present and we also hold a Free Quiz on the night. We would like to thank everybody who has supported these events through the years.

Thank you to everybody who came to our Free Quiz Night at Lowrys bar recently. It was a brilliant night and the fight for first place was very tough.
The winning team nominated Kilfeacle RFC as the recipient of the €300 prize. Pictured below are Claire Costelloe (TCU), Jamie Keaty Kilfeacle RFC and Breda McCarthy (Director TCU).

The second place team nominated Tipp Town FC as the recipient of the €200 prize. Pictured below are Robert Creamer (Tipp Town FC), Claire Costelloe (TCU) and Michael Glasheen (Tipp Town FC).

Transition Year Bursary Awards

This is the first year we held the Transition Year Bursary Awards. The cost of putting a child through Transition Year can range from €500 to €1,000 depending on the school. As a result of this very costly expense the Transition Year Bursary was created. The four secondary schools in our common bond each get €500 for one student to help with the expense of the year. In order to enter the student had to complete an application form and return it to Tipperary Credit Union. We would like to thank all the students who took the time to fill out the entry forms. Pictured are the recipients for this year awards were:

  • Cliona Roche St Ailbe’s Secondary School
  • Anna Ryan Scoil na Trionoide Naofa
  • Helen Treacy (Tipperary Credit Union)
  • James Hanly The Abbey CBS Secondary School
  • Ava O’Callaghan St Anne’s Secondary School

Digital Media Competition

This year Tipperary Credit Union decided to run a Digital Media Competition for students. Our goal was to engage with our younger members in a medium that they can relate to.  Their task was to create a 30-60 second advert about Tipperary Credit Union using the theme “The Credit Union Difference”. Three schools: St Anne’s, The Abbey CBS and Scoil na Trionoide Naofa Secondary School (Doon) came on board. The prize was €2,000 for digital media equipment for their school. The competition was a resounding success! The entries were amazing and really took us by surprise by how professional and creative they were. All the videos can be found on our Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/tipperarycu/ and we would encourage everybody to view them.

Tipperary Credit Union would like to take this opportunity to thank all the students who participated in the competition, their teachers and schools for encouraging them and supporting them. A special thanks to Tipperary Credit Union’s Youth Committee and Board whose vision and hard work made this competition possible.
