About Us


Our History

Mallow Credit Union was founded in July 1963, to serve the financial needs of the community in a not for profit basis. In the early days business was conducted in the town hall and run by volunteers.

In 1969 Marian House, O Brien street was purchased and during the period 1972 to 1974 the building was completely renovated and extended. From then on Mallow Credit Union expanded and developed.

In November 1982, premises were purchased at 135 Bank Place and refurbished during 1985 and opened for business on Thursday the 20th January, 1986. In June 1992 the premises adjoining the credit union, 134 Bank Place, were purchased and refurbished giving a more spacious banking area with reception desk and interview offices. This new area was opened for business in July 1995.

In August 2002 we opened a branch office in Ballydaheen, Mallow.

The office in the main street is now fully refurbished, giving our members a more comfortable environment to conduct their business and for our staff to work in.
