Credit Union Current Account Fees

Thirty of the larger Credit unions in Ireland launched a new current account in October 2019. This means they can now compete with banks for day-to-day banking services. The current account can be used for receiving salaries, setting up direct debits and standing orders. You can operate the account online and using a mobile app. It comes with a Mastercard debit card.

Account Charges

There will be a monthly Account Maintenance Fee of €4 charged quarterly ( €12 per quarter).

There is also a 50c charge per ATM withdrawal if you exceed five withdrawals per month.
All other day to day transactions are free.

A Credit Union current account is not the cheapest available – so it is hard to see too many people switching over to the Credit Union from their existing bank unless they already have a savings account with the Credit Union.

  1. Well what can I say not much reserach done your behalf.. Credit Union are local loyal and lending and give back to the community in lots of ways. Most credit unions are open Saturday and late evenings also. No bank does that and also it’s a debit card so notting stopping getting cash back.. to cut down on charge. Also the charges are as competitive and simply compare to our so called Banks.
