UnPlug Programme - Regaining Focus in a Distracted World
We are pleased to partner up with the wonderful team at UnPlug to deliver a unique programme to all primary school children attending schools within our common bond.
The programme, the first of its kind in Ireland – Regaining Focus in a Distracted World is designed to raise awareness of the impact that technology and social media have on the lives of young people and promote well-being amongst children in the school setting. UnPlug is designed to be fun, evidence based and focused on practical steps for positive behaviour change. Find out more about our UnPlug programme here.
Just like ourselves, the GAA is at the heart of our communities and the Credit Union has a long and proud history of supporting Dublin GAA. We are proud sponsors to some of Dublin’s finest GAA clubs. Find out more about our GAA Sponsorships here.
We operate a school saving scheme in over 30 local schools. The aim is to encourage children to adopt a regular savings habit at an early age, and in doing so, develop a sense of good financial management for the future. Participating schools receive an annual donation. If you’re interested in setting up a saving scheme in your local school or learning more click here

Saving money is nothing compared to saving lives. We continue to sponsor the purchase of defibrillators and the training necessary for their proper use within North Dublin. We have sponsored the placement of defibrillators in local clubs and schools. You’ll find all our defibrillator locations here.
We sponsor a number of other clubs, organisations and events in the local area. See some of the groups we support below and some of the projects we’ve sponsored here.
We offer members the chance to win prizes – including a brand new car – every month. And all for just €1 a week! If you’re interested, get an application form at any Member First Credit Union or download it here. Remember, you must be over 18 to participate.
