Our core mission is to enhance benefit and choice for our members through the range of financial services we offer, whilst continuing to lead and promote best practice in everything we do.

Great Team of Professionals

Having completed his first week in his new role Pa Laide said he is glad to return to Kerry and to workwith Tralee Credit Union.

I’m really looking forward to the challenge and developing the role with such a great team of professionals at board, management and staff level,” he said.

I feel privileged to be working with such a strong company as Tralee Credit Union. They have just completed their year-end with tremendous success and are shortlisted for a number of upcoming awards.

Results do not Just Happen

Results like these do not just happen, they are a result of hard work and dedication from the board, management and staff and loyalty and trust of members.

Credit Unions are different from other financial institutions, not just because they are not for profit, but because they are embedded within the community. It’s not a coincidence that credit unions topped the customer experience poll for a third consecutive year recently.

Members are Key Focus

Their members are their key focus, they put their members at the heart of everything they do. As decisions are made locally, credit unions have the flexibility to provide services that are tailored to the individual needs of members.

Lending is Tralee Credit Union’s main source of income so it’s important that members access credit and use our services. I look forward to working with the team, developing our suite of services and establishing relationships with our members, businesses and communities throughout Tralee, Castleisland and Killorglin,” said Mr. Laide in conclusion.
