Credit Union Savings Scheme
Every Friday morning, money is collected from the children (who wish to take part in the savings incentive). This money is recorded and taken to the Inniskeen Credit Union where it is then lodged into the child's personal account. A great initiative to encourage our youngsters to save for their future!
