Joining Thurles Credit Union is the best decision you could make for your money. We accept new members of all ages from our surrounding areas in our common bond. This covers those who live or work in the Thurles Postal district (with the exception of Borrisoleigh, Templemore, Castleiney, Drangan and Fethard) and within a 10 mile radius of Roscrea Post Office.
JOIN ONLINE AND SAVE TIME
Anyone living, working, or studying in the common bond can now become a member of Thurles Credit Union without stepping foot in their offices. It’s all thanks to their new mobile app. You can apply in minutes, and once approved, you can transfer funds, apply for a loan and a whole lot more. It's fast, easy, and secure.
‘We’re delighted with the new app and everything it can do’, says Brian King, CEO of Thurles Credit Union. ‘It makes the process of joining a lot easier. You can upload your proof of ID, address, and PPSN on your smartphone. Advanced biometric facial technology is used to capture and verify who you are. Simply take a selfie and you are done. We think it’s going to be a real game-changer for us. If there are people out there who have been thinking of joining Thurles Credit Union but were put off by paper forms, this app is for them.’
Apart altogether from the new mobile app, becoming a member of Thurles Credit Union is one of the best decisions you can make for your money. We are a not-for-profit community organisation and offer great value loans with flexible repayment options and free protection insurance. In these challenging times, we are always there for you.
To download the app, just go to Google Play or the App Store and search for 'Thurles Credit Union'.
