Credit unions were introduced to Ireland in 1958. Pioneers introducing the mutual self-help philosophy in credit unions couldn’t have foreseen that today there are nearly 400 active credit unions in the Republic of Ireland. Over 2.9 million people in Ireland are a member of a credit union in Ireland and, collectively, have close on €11.9 billion in savings. More than 3,500 people are employed by credit unions in Ireland and a further 9,200 people actively volunteer in their community’s credit union.
