BLANCHARDSTOWN CU celebrates 50th Anniversary

by Gazette Reporter

With 20,000 members, Blanchardstown & District Credit Union will celebrate its 50th anniversary this Thursday July 9.

Alas, the ‘bells and whistle’ celebrations and open day originally planned for this week had to be deferred in keeping with Covid-19 restrictions.

However, members are encouraged to keep an eye on the branch’s active social media sites, on Facebook and Instagram, and of course, their own website

“The spread of the pandemic and the subsequent restrictions altered our plans,” said Monika Romanowicz, Digital Transformation & Marketing Officer at Blanchardstown CU.

“We will be announcing details of our children’s art competition later in July, which will probably run to September 2020. Education awards for third level students will be announced in August.

“We will be hosting branch promotions to celebrate our 50th Anniversary but we cannot confirm these as yet, owing to the pandemic guidelines”.

Competitions and promotions will be announced online, as restrictions are lifted – so all 20,000 members of Blanchardstown CU, do stay tuned to the branch’s social media pages. New members always welcome.

“Our branch offices have now re-opened but not all staff are not back to work yet, owing to government regulations on social distancing”, noted Monika.

97% Loans

With 20,000 members, 97% of all loans are approved, with €29 million given in loans at Blanchardstown & District CU, which exists to help people, not to make a profit. For 50 years, the branch has been serving the people and business community of Dublin 15.

“We also have lower interest rates for cars and home improvements,” said Monika.
