Cara Credit Unions have recently introduced a new full-service Current Account. The new Current Account includes the globally accepted Mastercard Debit Card with Contactless Payments, Standing Orders, Direct Debits, and the option of an Overdraft facility.
Cara Credit Union members can open a Current Account online or in your local Credit Union in Tralee, Castleisland and Killorglin. This is good news for Credit Union members and for consumers in general who have limited choice at present. Cara Credit Union is seen to offer something different to the major banks in terms of their personal touch and are considered trustworthy.
Speaking at the launch, Pa Laide, CEO of Cara Credit Union said:
“This is a watershed moment in the credit unions history. It means credit union members with savings and loans will now be able to get a competitive Current Account from their trusted Credit Union, and they will no longer need to go to a bank to get this service. For the first time, we will be able to provide our members with a real choice for their day-to-day financial needs. And this service, which will be accessible globally and digitally, will enable us to become even more relevant to our members in the ever-increasing digital world. This means that while you may live away from Kerry you can now access funds in your local credit union” For more information on the new Current Account and Debit Card see
