British Credit Union Historical Society

Irish League of Credit Unions

Irish League of Credit Unions (ILCU) 525 member credit unions was set up by a small group of credit unions in 1960 to represent & service affiliated credit unions on the island of Ireland.  The ILCU now represents the interests of over 500 credit unions in Ireland. The ILCU is the trade and representative body for 95 credit unions in Northern Ireland. Membership of the ILCU is open to every credit union in Ireland. 

  • Promotes the credit union idea and ethos. 

  • Represents affiliated credit unions with Government, the EU and other agencies. 

  • Provides central services to credit unions.

The ILCU has undergone a programme of re-focusing of its operations to better support credit unions in achieving their specific goals. 

 As the representative voice of the credit union movement in Ireland, the ILCU work in the best interests of all credit unions.

The key to creating a balance between a commercial focus and the special ethos of the credit union movement is to establish and maintain a culture of self-regulation throughout the organisation.

Advice, guidance and assistance with day-to-day operations and on a range of other issues are critical elements of the ILCU‘s Business Support Service.
