In November 1967, Rev C.D. O’Riordan, Prior, Holy Cross formed a study group with a view to establishing a credit union in Tralee. In keeping with Nora Herlihy’s motto “No Study, No Credit Union” they studied hard examining the concept, formation and running of a credit union.

Using their own money they pooled together nearly £50 as the starting capital needed to form the credit union.

Today that pool of funds has grown to €174 Million in Local Members Savings.
