The Common Bond in time was also extended to serve the wider community and from those humble beginnings the credit union has grown to and has given over all the years of service to the local community.
The credit union operates a School Saver Club in local primary schools which has proved to be a very successful way of encouraging children to save and in time to become the adult members of the future.
After 50 years it is acknowledged by many that the founders were as pillars of the Credit Union movement in Clonard.
