Credit Unions across the country featured in a series on RTE 1 called ‘The Borrowers’.

The first episode aired on Tuesday the 16th April and will continue each Tuesday @ 8.30pm for 7 more episodes.

Credit Unions look at people as individuals, with their own stories and their own reasons to borrow. No two loans are the same and, equally, no two borrowers are the same.

Credit unions are open for all types of loans, to people from all walks of life.  We hope you can tune in to see the real side of how the Credit Union works.
