“Despite the unprecedented challenges faced, Ballyshannon & Killybegs Credit Union has continued to serve its members throughout the pandemic by adopting new methods of providing our services and making necessary modifications to all our premises to be compliant with HSE guidelines. Our focus throughout has been to continue to work in a way that best suits our members.
