You can apply online, by phone or in branch. We provide 24/7 website access, a dedicated phone-a-loan service and a choice of several branches across south Dublin.


Irish Credit Bureau

We are a member of the Irish Credit Bureau (ICB). This enables us to make faster decisions on loan applications and help our members avoid becoming over indebted. When you apply for a loan from us, you will be asked to consent to a data disclosure statement which authorises us to run a credit enquiry and register your details with the ICB.


Central Credit Register


The Central Credit Register (CCR) is a national database that, on request, provides:


  • A borrower with an individual credit report detailing their credit agreements
  • A lender with comprehensive information to help with credit assessment
  • The Central Bank with better insights into national trends in the provision of credit


The Credit Reporting Act 2013 requires us to process a member’s personal and credit information and submit it to the CCR. The information includes:


  • Address
  • Date of birth
  • Personal Public Service Number (PPSN)


The CCR needs this information to make sure it accurately matches member loans, including loans that members may have with other financial institutions. Producing a full and accurate credit report is one of the main aims of the CCR. We also submit credit information each month about member loans where the balance is more than €500.
