Our mission is to meet our member’s financial needs through quality service, at good value, whilst maintaining financial stability.


Consistent with the credit union philosophy, Rathkeale and District Credit Union will be the financial institution of choice for our members and potential members within our common bond.

  • We hold ourselves to the highest standard of integrity, professional ethics, cooperation and team spirit.
  • We recognise the importance of a financially strong and stable organisation and of a positive and supportive environment for our staff, as well as servicing our member equitably.
