Armagh Credit Union was founded in May 1962 in Handel House. By January 1963 £500 in savings had been accumulated and the first loans were issued to members.
By the end of that year due to increased membership and a greater volume of business the Credit Union moved to Market Street. The first manger was appointed in 1967 and the Credit Union purchased the old cinema in Russell Street from where it continues to operate its expanding business.
We now have over 7300 members with a share capital in excess of £15 million and loans issued in excess of £8.7 million.
Membership is open to those over the age of 16 years of age who reside within the common bond.

Investing In the Community
Each year we undertake a number of events to try to encourage youth involvements in the Credit Union. Some of these events include the annual School Quiz and Poster competition. We also operate a School Savings Scheme and Smart Kids Savings Club.
