  • Almost all Loans are covered by free Loan Protection life insurance.
  • No hidden fees or transaction charges.
  • Repayments are calculated on the reducing balance of the loan.
  • Repayment terms to suit the member’s particular circumstances.
  • Flexibility – you can repay the loan earlier or make larger repayments than agreed with no penalty.
  • Payments can be made weekly, fortnightly or monthly.

Other information

Tallaght West Credit Union is a member of the Central Credit Register (CCR) & the Irish Credit Bureau (ICB), therefore we will be carrying out a check on all loan applicants and the repayment record on your loan with Tallaght West will be given to the CCR & ICB. It is important, therefore, that members adhere to their Credit Agreement as failure to do so may hinder your ability to borrow in the future.

Warning: If you do not keep making the agreed payments on your loan, your account will go into arrears.  This will affect your credit rating, and may affect your ability to access credit in future.
