History

History of our Credit Union: When three became one:

Kingscourt Credit Union was 1st opened on 15th February 1971 following a study group that was set up in November 1970.

The “office” was a room in St. Mary’s Hall that was operated by volunteers and open Saturday nights and Sunday mornings only. Later a new office was built near Market Square and a computer system was introduced. Due to an increase in membership, Kingscourt Credit Union Ltd acquired and refurbished the former Paddy Willy O’Brien’s newsagents on Main Street, which was opened in July of 1992. The Common Bond was also extended at this time, to serve the community of Nobber, as these surrounding areas were not already being served by any other Credit Union.

Bailieborough Credit Union was 1st opened on 23rd May 1966 following a study group set up in 1965.

The first office was located in the courthouse, opening on Fridays from 7.30pm to 9.00pm. In November 1966, the office moved to Swift Travel Agency on Main Street and remained there until an office on Lower Main Street, was rented from the late Tommie Martin. The Credit Union saw significant growth over those years, so much so the Directors decided to purchase a dwelling house in Anne Street in 1976. This building was used until 1997 when the Credit Union moved to its current location on Main Street.

St. Mary’s Moynalty Credit Union was first opened in January 1984 following a study group set up in 1982.

In April 1988, our Common Bond was extended to serve the communities of Mullagh & Kilbeg, which were not already being served by any other credit union.

On 4th August 2015, all 3 Credit Unions came together to become Link Credit Union.
