On Friday last, First Choice Credit Union officially launched their new 24/7 ATM service in their Ballyhaunis branch situated on Clare Street.

First Choice Credit Union stated: "The on-street ATM will be accessible to all, 24/7, 365 days of the year. This is great news for the people of Ballyhaunis, the wider community and indeed visitors to the town. Following the departure of Bank of Ireland late last year, and the withdrawal of the bank’s ATM, Ballyhaunis was left without any 24-hour ATM access.

"However, First Choice Credit Union will now ensure that their needs are met via the new ATM which will service all VISA cards including VPay, PLUS, Electron, all MasterCard branded cards including Maestro and Cirrus, JCB, CUP/UPI (China Union Pay ), ServiRed and AMEX."

Joe Butler, Chairperson of the Board of Directors of First Choice Credit Union stated that: "We are delighted to provide this much-needed service to the people of Ballyhaunis and its environs. It is undoubtedly another fine example of the credit union, not only putting the needs of its members to the fore, but that of the wider community. There is an undeniable need and demand for a 24-hour, publicly accessible ATM in the town and we are delighted to be able to provide this service."

Martin Fitzmaurice, PRO Ballyhaunis Chamber of Commerce commented: "This is fantastic news for the people of Ballyhaunis and surrounding areas. When Bank of Ireland departed in October last year, the town was left without a 24-hour ATM service. We’d like to commend the Credit Union for installing the ATM which is hugely welcomed by the chamber, local businesses and people throughout the community."

Commenting on the launch of the ATM, Anne King, CEO, First Choice Credit Union said: "As a community-based financial co-operative, we continuously strive to expand and enhance our services to our membership, and particularly in this instance to the wider community of Ballyhaunis.

"We believe in our communities and are committed to providing an increased suite of financial services to meet their needs, both online and in-branch. The provision of the ATM is in addition to, and complements, our fully functioning Current Account and Debit Card facility which provides a real alternative choice to the main street bank offerings. First Choice Credit Union is Local & Loyal."

The Credit Union is actively encouraging all individuals throughout their common bond to switch to the Credit Union Current Account.

The Current Account offers a full-service account that allows you to access a wide range of facilities, such as a globally accepted Mastercard Debit Card, FREE Contactless Payments, Point of Sale & Cashback Option, Apple Pay, Google Pay & Fitbit Pay, secure online shopping, automated regular payments using Standing Orders & Direct Debits & much more. Additionally, fees are transparent and extremely competitive.

First Choice Credit Union makes the Current Account switching process as convenient and simple as possible so members can enjoy banking with the Credit Union straight away.
