Half a century serving Carnew
Fifty proud years of serving the local community were celebrated recently as Carnew Credit Union marked half a century since the organisation held its first AGM.
A gala dinner was held in The Ashdown Park Hotel, Gorey, in honour of the milestone.
Present were many of those who have served on various committees over the years including several founding members and former board members and managers.
The first AGM was held on February 7, 1967, in St Aidan's Club, now Carnew Training and Development Centre. Carnew Credit Union has nine members of its Board of Directors, three members on the board oversight committee, five staff, and eight voluntary workers. It has a membership of 3,000 and its assets stand at €15.4 million.
An enjoyable evening was had, and warm tributes were paid to all who helped make Carnew Credit Union what it is today. Thanks were sent to all the members for their continued support.
