National Credit Union GR8 Savers Week

Rathkeale & District Credit Union is participating in the National Credit Union GR8 Savers Week this year and we would like to invite you to participate too. There are huge benefits to teaching children to become GR8 Savers from an early age. Helping them to understand why they should save and how to save. Instilling an understanding of the value of money is a valuable life lesson.
