In Pictures: Official launch of refurbished St Canice’s Credit Union in Rathdowney

St Canice’s Credit Union officially launched its refurbished and modernised Rathdowney Branch Office on Main Street in the town last week.

The Branch is now open four days per week (closed Wednesday) with late opening till 7pm on Friday evenings.

The aim of the refurbishment is to provide a bright modern, accessible branch for our members and to reaffirm St Canice’s commitment to the area in providing the best possible service to their members.

On the day of the launch, the three staff in Rathdowney – Margaret Powell, Elaine Delaney and Marion Phelan – were joined by well wishers from across the area.

These included local hurling star Ross King and former Chair of Rathdowney Credit Union Board Oliver Kennedy who officially opened the branch.

Other attendees included members of Rathdowney-Errill GAA and the Rathdowney Events Committee both of whom received sponsorship support from St Canice’s during the year.

As well as presentations to local community groups the car draw was also held where members can win a car and €5,000 in cash every month!

St Canice’s CEO Claire Lawton said of the day “It’s wonderful to be here in Rathdowney to celebrate a new dawn for the Credit Union in the area.

“The Credit Union is a not for profit co-operative that exists for the good of its members and it’s great to see so many of those members turning out today to support us.”

St Canice’s is the largest community credit union in the country with a membership of over 57,000 and assets in excess of €330 Million.

It offers an extensive range of products and services to members with online and phone banking facilities, electronic fund transfers and all with no transaction fees!
