About Us

Welcome to Donore Credit Union, Ireland’s oldest credit union. The story of Donore Credit Union Limited (DCUL) can be traced back to April 1958 when a meeting of Cumann Muintir Dun Oir ( Donore Parishioner’s Union ) was held in St Joseph’s Hall on Cork Street with the inaugural meeting of the Credit Union taking place on April 26th 1958 at 35 Hamilton Street.

Board, Committees, Working Groups and Officers

The Board of Directors has the power to delegate certain functions to committees and / officers. Certain committees and officers are required by law and are therefore referred to as ‘statutory committees and officers’ (e.g. Credit Committee, Credit Control Committee, Membership Committee and Nominations Committee).

Our Common Bond
