Penny Bank Christmas Savings

Plan your Christmas and enjoy that special time of year

With the sad closure of so many voluntary Penny Banks in our Community, we would like to assure people who always saved in a Penny Bank and relied on it to help them through Christmas, that Enniscorthy Credit Union has a Penny Bank Savings Club and we welcome anyone working or living in our common bond to join us in our Penny Bank and to keep this tradition going in our community.

  • New Saving Account – Separate from all other Credit Union accounts. Payments commence in early January.
  • Save Regularly – Direct debit or cash payments can be debited weekly, fortnightly or monthly.
