Mostrim Munch 2017

Along with the Edgeworthstown Traders we are out selling tickets for the Mostrim Munch – our fundraising breakfast.
But we are also handing out forms from Longford Credit Union. For those that don’t know – the Edgeworthstown Credit Union is a branch of the Longford Credit union and as a result has limited services to offer. The purpose of the form is to judge people’s interest in having a fully functional office in town that offers all the services that a credit union can.
The alternative is to close the office altogether and move all the functions to Longford.
There has been a lot of angry comments about the closure of the bank and the people of the town had no say in that decision. You have a say on the Credit Union – fill up the forms and return them to John Farrells. At the very least you might win a hamper.
