Cavan Credit Union has been providing members a current account and debit card facilities since summer. The account provides members with access to a full suite of current account services to meet their daily banking needs.

Speaking to The Anglo-Celt, Therese Conway, CEO of Cavan Credit Union, said staff are "very busy" opening current accounts for new and existing members. "With the fast approaching withdrawal of Ulster Bank and KBC from the Irish financial market, we have seen a surge in demand for current accounts. In order to meet this, and retain the high level of service that we are renowned for, we have added extra staff so that members who want to open a current account don’t have a long wait time."

Other benefits of opening a Cavan CU current account include a competitive monthly fee of €5, five free ATM cash withdrawals per month and free contactless payments. There is no monthly fee for members over 65 years or for students, aged 16 plus.

Therese advised that a new MYCU youth debit card has been added for those aged 12 to 15 years.

Those interested in opening a new account or switching, can drop into the Credit Union at 83 Main St, Cavan, or call 049-4331715 to make an appointment. You can also find out more about the MYCU card and Youth card on
