Ballyhackamore Credit Union was established in 1967 with help from Derry Credit Union.
The motivating force was Father PJ O’Hare of St Colmcille’s church. The first Board meeting held in March 1967 consisted of Jerome Dawson, Val McMurray, Jimmy O’Reilly, Myles McCormick, Jackie Brown, Tom Fleming, Brendan Small and Paddy O’Kane.
Early business was conducted in St Colmcille’s Parochial Hall and in 1969 moved to newly acquired premises at 173 Upper Newtownards Road.
In 2002 new premises were opened at 171-173 Upper Newtownards Road. Membership has grown steadily over the years and continues to do so.
IN 2017 WE WILL CELEBRATE 50 YEARS OF BALLYHACKAMORE CREDIT UNION!
Ballyhackamore Credit Union is a local, not for profit financial organisation specialising in providing a safe place for savings and loans in our community. We offer members the chance to have control over their own finances by making their savings work for them and also to provide them with fair and affordable loans.
Credit unions exist only to serve their members- not to profit from them.
At the end of the year, any surplus is returned to our members by way of a dividend and, where possible, a rebate on loan interest payments
