Our History

The Arch-Confraternity Credit Union has its beginning in the Spring of 1962 when a study group was formed with a view to setting up a credit union for the members of the Arch-Confraternity at the Redemptorist Church in Limerick.

It opened its first office on Monday 8th October 1962 in St. Clements Hall, beside the Redemptorist Church and by close of business that night, it had two hundred members and they had deposited savings of over £700.00.

In 1970, with the increase in its business, the Credit Union purchased a building at 69 O Connell st., in the heart of Georgian Limerick and transferred the office there.

In 1997, the Credit Union changed its bond of association to an area based Credit Union.

In 1997, the Credit Union changed its bond of association to an area based Credit Union and was renamed Sarsfield Credit Union Ltd

Anyone living, working, attending school/college or self-employed people who work freelance for businesses within the common bond area are all eligible to join.

In 2007 a further move was made when Sarsfield Credit Union purchased the “Stone Jug” building formally owned by the PTSB in Glentworth Street.

March 2011 after renovation work had been carried out Sarsfield Credit Union took up residence in this state of the art building.

How are we different to a bank?
