Corina Johnston started this petition to Board of Progressive Credit Union

The decision to close the Progressive Credit Union in Donabate on 1st July 2021 has come as a major shock to the members and the wider community. It seems our iconic building Ballisk House, which was funded by the loans and savings of the members of the former Donabate Credit Union, will now be closed and put up for sale.

The impact of this decision on the members, especially seniors is immense. The Credit Union has retained an office on the peninsula for the last 53 years. The nearest Credit Union office is in Rivervalley, Swords with no direct bus service from the peninsula. 

The decision is surprising given Donabate is designated as a growth area by Fingal County Council with the population set to increase to 20,000 over the next 10 years. We are calling on the Board of the Directors of the Progressive Credit Union to reconsider this decision as a physical presence must be retained in Donabate, even on a part time basis. This petition is an opportunity for the members of the Credit Union and the wider community (potential members) to make their views known to the board.
