Phone a Loan

By | News

In some cases we can now take loan applications over the telephone. Once you phone us, our Loan Officer will establish whether you are suitable for this facility on the telephone call with you.

This means getting a loan from Kells Credit Union could mean only 1 visit to our office for you.

The one visit is required to sign documentation and to draw down the loan itself.

If you are thinking about applying for a loan with us, pick up the phone and select Loan Queries, speak to a Loans Officer and advise them you would like to apply over the phone for a loan.

We will ask you a series of questions to determine whether you are suitable for the Phone a Loan service.

You will be required to provide certain documentation for the loan application, the likes of payslips and bank statements for example, these can be emailed to us, and our Loan Officer will advise you of the email address on the telephone call.

First time loan applicants, unfortunately, will not be able to avail of this new service.

Terms and Conditions will apply. St. Colmcille’s (Kells) Credit Union Ltd are regulated by the Central Bank of Ireland.
To speak to one of our dedicated Loan Officers, call us on (046) 924 0299 to make your application!

St Colmcille’s (Kells) Credit Union has been informed again that there’s currently a phishing scam targeting Credit Union members throughout the country.

Members who have been targeted will receive an email from what seems legitimate and will be titled something around finance or invoicing.  The email will have a word document attachment, and when clicked on, it will prompt users to download additional files.

St Colmcille’s (Kells)Credit Union strongly urges its members in receipt of such emails never to click on any link as doing so enables the download of malicious software that has the capacity to collect and compromise personal details and defraud accounts.

The Credit Union never contacts its members asking them to provide full personal details by email, online or by phone.

If you have any questions don’t forget you can always call into the office or phone us on (046) 924 0299

Looking to volunteer? We need you!

By | News

The Credit Union spirit of co-operation and community development is perhaps best demonstrated through the incredible contributions of thousands of volunteers at director, committee and local Credit Union level, who selflessly give their time and energy to the Credit Union movement. In 2001, President McAleese paid tribute to the dynamism and consistency of the movement when speaking at the World Council of Credit Unions’ International Conference in Killarney, Co. Kerry saying, “The Credit Union movement is not and never has been about rocket science but about the simplest and the most profound human psychology – wrapped up in an old Irish saying – Ní neart go cur le chéile – unity is strength.”

St Colmcille’s (Kells) Credit Union exists for the benefits of its members. We rely a great deal on the services of our valued volunteers who commit tirelessly to the success and sustainability of our Credit Union. These volunteers sit on the various Committees and our Board of Directors, so they are fundamental to our past, present and future. Every credit union needs a team of volunteers dedicated to ensuring a strong and viable future for all of our members. An individual can develop both personally and professionally by volunteering. The benefits of Credit Union volunteering include:

  • Gaining skills and experience with a professional financial service provider

  • Education and training

  • Personal development

  • Meet new people from the community

  • Work on developmental and business projects

  • Give something back to the community


Don’t know much about Credit Unions?

Don’t worry – you will be given plenty of support and training and you will very quickly pick things up. Training is a very important part of being involved in the Credit Union!

Benefits you will receive as a member

You will gain many friends, develop additional skills which will serve you well in your career (no matter what it is) and you will be confident in the knowledge that you are enhancing the lives and financial wellbeing of our Members and community.

Who is it suitable for?

Finance, information technology, management and communications skills are particularly welcome. However, any ability to make a contribution is appreciated. There are policies and training in place to support volunteers in their roles. In addition to the induction training programme for all new volunteers, ongoing training is available and people are encouraged to develop various skills. Credit Union committees offer an excellent starting point for new volunteers. These committees provide experience, learning and an active role within the credit union. Once a volunteer has served the Credit Union at committee level for a period of time, and training needs have been identified and addressed, you can move into a director or supervisor position.

The Credit Union reserves the right to refuse a person as a volunteer and where appropriate will give a reason for that refusal as Community Credit Union is bound by the standards of Fitness & Probity, issued by the Central Bank of Ireland.

Talk to us and find out what your potential contribution could be. We need people like you.

Apply today, by contacting or phoning (046) 924 0299. You can also forward your interest for the attention of the Nomination Committee at St Colmcille’s (Kells) Credit Union, Headfort Place, Kells. Please quote “VOLUNTEER” when making contact.
