First Choice Credit Union continues to go from strength to strength. In great news for our growing membership, we have recently launched a new full-service Current Account. First Choice Credit Union is the first and currently, only Credit Union in Mayo and the North-West to bring this service to its membership.


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.


Members of First Choice Credit Union can open a Current Account Online or in any of our local offices in Achill, Balla, Ballyhaunis or Castlebar.  New Members are always welcome in First Choice Credit Union and the Current Account is also available to all new Members. This is good news for Credit Union members and for consumers in general who have limited choice at present. Credit Unions are seen to offer something different to the major banks in terms of our personal touch and trusted relationship with our members.


The new Current Account has simple and transparent pricing. A low monthly fee of €4.00 applies and that covers unlimited euro point of sale and contactless transactions, unlimited mobile and online banking and unlimited standing orders and direct debit processing and up to five ATM withdrawals per month. Full details of fees and charges are available in all First Choice Credit Union branches or online by clicking here ⇒ CURRENT ACCOUNT.


Speaking on the launch, Anne King, CEO of First Choice Credit Union said:

“This is a watershed moment in the credit unions history. It means credit union members with savings and loans will now also have the option of enjoying a competitive Current Account from our trusted Credit Union. For the first time, First Choice Credit Union will be able to provide our members with a real choice for their day-to-day financial needs. This service, which will be accessible globally and digitally, will enable First Choice Credit Union to become even more relevant to our members in the ever-increasing digital world.


Credit Unions have been voted the ‘most trusted financial institution’ for many years, and just recently they became the first in the world to receive the coveted national ‘CX Award for Best Customer Experience in Ireland’ for a record-breaking five years in a row. This trusted position is one First Choice Credit Union wants to build on with this new service launch. We envisage many members switching their day to day banking to the Credit Union because we are now a community owned viable alternative”.
