Credit Union

Currently Mullinahone Credit Union is engaged in what is legally known as a transfer of engagement with Mullinahone Credit Union. This means that our Credit Union and Clonmel Credit Union will join forces as the one Credit Union in the very near future. This amalgamation represents a very good deal for the members of Mullinahone Credit union. New and even better services will then be available to members in Mullinahone from link up day which will shortly be announced to members.

All services will become available to Mullinahone members in Mullinahone, Fethard or Clonmel as all 3 offices will be linked to the same computer.  It is sad to see our voluntary credit union come to an end after 37 successful years, but the local Board of Directors decided that the best way to safeguard and increase services to local members was to link up with a full time credit union.

The increased workload brought on by the regulator made it impossible for our local band of volunteers to carry on and to provide the service that our members are entitled to.  As stated, members will be informed of the date of the link-up in the near future.

Thank You

Thank you from Áine Brett to the local people who contributed to the recent church gate collection in aid of the Irish Cancer Society. A total of €803 was raised for this very worthy cause.

Wet and Windy May

May turned out to be both wet and windy. Hopefully, it will result in our barns being filled with corn and hay as the old saying promises. In all, 102.2mm of rain fell on 20 of the 31 days in the month. So far, May has proved to be the wettest month of 2015.
