Limerick & District Credit Union here to help with back-to-school costs


THE latest Irish League of Credit Unions (ILCU) survey on back-to-school costs shows the overall spend on school items has increased for both primary and secondary school pupils.
The cost of sending a child to primary school this coming year is €1,186, up €65 on last year, while parents of secondary school children can expect to pay an average of €1,491, up from €1,467 last year.
Caroline Long, CEO at Limerick & District Credit Union commented: “We are aware that back-to-school costs can place huge financial pressure on families. We want to reassure parents in the Limerick area that the Credit Union is here to help anyone who needs assistance.
“The message to our members would be to come and talk to us here at Limerick & District Credit Union. We endeavour to meet parents’ financial needs and are here to lend a helping hand to cover the costs of children going back to school.”
Ms Long concluded: “Our loans are typically turned around quickly. We have no hidden transaction fees or charges and as always, we are happy to structure repayments in a way that suits individual circumstances. We are more than happy to assist anyone who might need a little extra financial help at back-to-school time.”
