Plans to sell credit union property on Wilton Road

Wednesday, 5th December, 2018 4:46pm

The former Viscount site on the Curraheen Road is about to take on a new lease of life.

Bishopstown Credit Union is to make the site its new headquarters and has recently signed the construction contract.

The circa €5.835m contract was awarded to Cumnor Construction, following what Bishopstown Credit Union said was a competitive tender process.

Founded in 1967, Bishopstown Credit Union has 21,874 members and currently operates from the Wilton Road, with a branch in Wilton Shopping Centre.

It intends, following the move to Curraheen Road, to sell its Wilton Road building and the adjoining property which it also owns.

David P Barry, Chairman of Bishopstown Credit Union said this was a very welcome event.

He said: “We are now re-establishing our presence in the heart of Bishopstown, at the former Viscount site on the Curraheen Road. It is intended that the building will be completed and fitted out in twelve months.

“As one of the largest community based credit unions in Ireland, with assets of €150 million and a staff of 30 people, we have outgrown our current premises on the Wilton Road and our new headquarters will enable us to make further progress as a key local financial service provider.”

Established in 1983, Cumnor Construction Ltd have successfully completed many projects for public and private clients over the last thirty-five years in the commercial, industrial, educational, healthcare, general building and civil engineering sectors.
