We Put You First

Claddagh Credit Union is all about our members. We’re different because we put you at the heart of our business. We are a not-for-profit organisation which means no external shareholders. This means you have a say in how your credit union can work best for you. Each member has a voice and each member has a say in our future.

Supporting Our Community

Claddagh Credit Union is 100% owned by our members. As a result, we can lend a helping hand and offer support to a variety of local projects. We do this by way of sponsorship, charitable donations, our College Bursary supporting students as well as our dedicated Community Engagement Fund. In addition, we also work with local businesses to reward members with our loyalty club, the Connect Card.

Not only do you get the best financial services designed for your needs, your membership benefits your local community as well.
