Paddy Gerrard

Paddy Gerrard was a founding member of Swords & District Credit Union (now part of the Member First family) in 1970. He was a massive influence in the early years of the credit union and took great pride in his work on the Board of Directors. 

Paddy sadly passed away in early 2021, and we are honoured to remember him through our Annual Scholarship Award. This Scholarship Scheme is funded by the MFCU Community Fund. As a non-profit organisation, MFCU has always prided itself on investing in local communities. Paddy understood the importance of the involvement of credit unions in our local communities.
