Our History


Credit Unions have been part of the Irish landscape since 1958, when they were introduced to uplift communities by placing people before profit.


Dundalk Credit Union opened ten years later in 1968. Fr. Frank Donnelly saw the need for a credit union in Dundalk and worked tirelessly to open one in the community.


Today we have more than 25,000 members and support them wholeheartedly in realising their dreams and aspirations. Members can avail of our loans at very competitive rates and build their savings with our generous dividend. We also offer our members peace of mind from our stable financial model and strong reserve position and we are also covered by the Government Guarantee of up to €100,000 per member.


Dundalk Credit Union provides local employment and is a well-known and respected locally recognised employer.
