With the Cost of Living Crisis rising to record levels, Killarney Credit Union has launched a new loan product designed to help members budget and pay for home heating products.

Members' needs are always to the forefront in the development of the credit union's business with members conveying their worries on meeting bills this winter, Karena McCarthy Marketing & Development Officer with Killarney Credit Union explained."Among their worries were home heating costs. In the development of the product we spoke to a number of local companies based in, and delivering to customers, in our common bond. To this end we are delighted to announce that we are a finance partner to six locally based companies; CRL Oil, Corrib Oil, Geaney Oils, Killarney Oils/Top Oil, M&J Kelleher LTD and Sceilg Ola," she said."The process is simple. If you are considering ordering oil off your oil company of choice and you would like to spread the cost into easy instalments over a time frame that suits you, please contact Killarney Credit Union.

Obviously we always have the bigger loan products but we want members to know we do loans for the smaller items or bills also."She also added that they are particularly delighted with the response from the local oil companies based in and distributing in the local area."We are a community based organisation working for and with the community and this is just a small part that we can play in potentially helping make life a little easier for some of our members."The six oil companies join an ever growing list of companies participating in the CU Easypay Scheme.If you wish to pay for products or services provided by a wide range of companies listed on CU Easypay - you can apply for a loan with Killarney Credit Union to pay for these products or services over a time frame that suits you.For further information on CU Easypay partners visit www.killarneycu.ie/cueasypay, or if you are a business that would like to participate, please contact Karena McCarthy on 064 6623730.

Jumpers have helped to raise almost €10k so far – but now it’s a very special jersey which could drive the fundraising numbers up!

A Kerry football jersey signed by the 2022 All-Ireland winning team is up for grabs via a fundraising link once a donation is made to the Presents for Palliative fundraiser.

On Friday eight local schools including Holy Cross Mercy, Killarney Community College, Presentation Monastery, Lissivigeen, St Brendan’s College, St Brigid’s, St Francis Special School, and St Oliver’s
swapped their uniforms for their most colourful festive gear with funds going to help the amazing services in the Palliative Care Unit/Kerry Hospice Foundation.

“The day took place across the schools involved last Friday (December 2) and looks like it has been a success,” teacher Elaine Moynihan from St Brendan’s College told the Killarney Advertiser.

“The donations from the schools are still being counted but students look to be on their way towards making their goal of €10k.”

The iDonate ‘Fundraising For Kerry Hospice Foundation’ has been very helpful in this regard, she added.

“Anyone who donates via the link and leaves their name will be in with a chance to win a Kerry jersey signed by the 2022 All-Ireland winning team which will be presented to them before Christmas by a couple of members of the team.

“This was organised by the students involved in the fundraiser as a way to say thanks, and give back, to the members of the community who have gotten involved in the event – the link is live until December 18 and the draw will be made the following day.”
