Athlone Credit Union Limited

About Us

Athlone Credit Union Limited was founded in 1966, making it one of the oldest credit unions in the country. At the time it operated from above Foys Shop on Church Street. In the mid 1970s owing to the growth of the credit union, the premises was moved to Friary Lane. In 1995, the credit union moved again to where it is currently located in Northgate Street.

It now boasts assets of €65mn and a membership base of over fifteen thousand. Athlone Credit Union Limited is affiliated to the Irish League of Credit Unions and is regulated by the Central Bank of Ireland.

A new office was opened in Monksland in Oct 2012.
