Managing Financial Debt

Thurles Credit Union | Managing Financial Debt


One of the first Thurles Credit Union Offices at Milk Bar. Around 1960's

Thurles Credit Union was founded in 1961. Initially it had the use of the Muintir na Tira Hall in Rossa Street, Thurles. After a short period, the Girls Club opposite the Presentation Convent (now the CMAC offices) was used as membership had grown. Soon, this location was inadequate and required larger premises. This was obtained by the purchase of the Shamrock Bar. This building, while solving the immediate needs, was soon too small to provide proper surroundings for members to conduct their business. The Milk Bar came on the market and was purchased. Some four renovations and expansions later, the present premises had been developed.

The establishment of a sub office in Urlingford in 1986 brought the Credit Union to the community in that area. The first collection took place in the Court House and later in the old primary school. This was an unsatisfactory arrangement, which was solved by the purchase of a building in Main Street. This building was renovated and now provides comfortable surroundings for members to carry out their business.

The development of the Killenaule office commenced in 1993 with the renting of facilities in River Street. As with Thurles and Urlingford, the need for a larger office soon emerged and the credit union was fortunate to purchase a suitable premises for development.
