40 YEARS IN SERVICE
Balbriggan Credit Union celebrates 40

interest and promote the welfare of their communities. The credit unions
motto is Not for Profit.
Ten years later in 1977 the Credit Union
was ten years old and had 1054 members. The total Savings were £147,000
and there was £143,000 out on loan.

1990 the Credit Union moved to the converted Dr. Ryans house in Dublin

years to reach £1m in Savings, it took less than five more to reach £2m.
In 1992 the Credit Union
celebrated its twenty-fifth birthday. The 4,200 members had Savings of
£2.19m and Loans of £1.97m. As the 90s progressed, the Credit Union
