Tower Credit Union celebrates 60th anniversary with coffee morning

Article contributed by Tower Credit Union

TOWER Credit Union Ltd (formerly known as Clondalkin Credit Union Ltd) was founded on Friday, September 28, 1962 at a general meeting held in the library on Monastery Road.

Some 45 people were present at the inaugural general meeting.

The initial savings of the credit union amounted to £101, which was collected from the 45 members present at the inaugural meeting.

Today, Tower Credit Union has grown to over 47,000 members with savings in excess of €175 million and loans of over €47 million.

This week, we celebrate ‘A Lifetime Together’ with our 60th Anniversary.

To commemorate our history within the wider community, our branches will host individual coffee mornings on Thursday, September 29, between 10am and 12 noon.

We would like to invite any member who is passing by to pop in and say hello to informally meet staff and board members for tea/coffee and buns.

We are committed to continuing our legacy for the next 60 years, providing excellent financial services to all our members, both old and new.

All our members can continue to have access and friendly financial services whether it’s face to face across all our branches, over the phone via our dedicated call centre or our online facilities, including a TowerCU App.
