LOUGH, STOCK & BARREL LAUNCH – The Lough Credit Union Cork


Our members have been speaking and we have listened!

Gone are the days where you had to pay higher loan rates on larger loan amounts and here are the days of Lough, Stock & Barrel.

Lough, Stock & Barrel is Cork’s newest loan product at an outstanding rate of 5.95% (6.12% APR) on all new loans between €25,000 – €45,000 with a repayment period between 6 – 12 years.

The loan can be for ANY personal loan purpose and you can even COMBINE loans together. For example, do you need a new car and to pay for your child’s college fees? Why not combine the 2 into a loan with a rate that’s even lower than the banks?

We will have piggy banks, activity sheets, rainbow pencils and the likes throughout Tuesday – Saturday in order to promote saving to our youngest members.

Promoting savings to the youth of our common bond is extremely important, as a habit of saving at a young age can really encourage our youth to be responsible with their money when they reach adulthood and live their lives happily and comfortably!
