I’m delighted to share an interview with Finbarr O’Shea from Bantry Credit Union.
Finbarr reached out to me as part of my League board election campaign with a number of questions and in particular my approach to rural Credit Unions given that I’m the CEO of a Dublin-based Credit Union.
We have a great discussion covering a number of important topics such as:
- the challenge of share caps, in particular for older members;
- social housing and the opportunity it presents for Credit Unions
- fragmentation, where I give an alternative view
I hope you enjoy the interview and if you have any questions for me please send me an email or use the contact page.
Hosted by Core Credit Union CEO Michael Byrne, Credit Union Discussions dives into topical issues in the Credit Union sector focusing on innovative solutions by bringing the expertise of leading voices working in and supporting Credit Unions
Myself and Finbarr O'Shea discuss how I'll represent rural and small Credit Unions if successfully elected to the Irish League of Credit Unions board.
We also discuss challenges presented by Share Caps and a simple solution to the problem. The need for CUs to get involved in Social Housing and the benefit of having grassroots initiatives driven by Credit Unions from the ground up and the Green agenda
