About us

People helping people. It’s really simple, but it works!

A Little Bit About Us

We are a member owned, community based financial co-op. Our members are at the core of everything we do. After all, our members are our owners. Established in 1968, Life Credit Union is now one of the largest in Ireland, with more than 39,000 members, and assets of more than €169 million. Offering a range of ethical financial services, membership is open to anyone living or working in Naas, Maynooth, Newbridge and surrounding areas. Our main services are savings accounts and flexible loans for members.

As a Credit Union, we are different. The more you do business with us, the more we can give back to your community. We are a not-for-profit organisation, so the money we make goes directly back to you, our members. That’s what sets us apart from our competitors. That’s what makes us unique.



Banking, only better

  • Owned by our members
  • Not for profit
