Below are my weekly lessons for weeks 26 – 30 on the Civil War/War Between the States/War of Northern Aggression. The competition, which has been run by credit unions throughout Ireland, culminated in the national final which took place in the Town Hall Theatre, Ballinasloe, Co. Galway on Saturday 7th November 2015. Please see a copy of the Irish League of Credit Unions (ILCU) Social Housing Strategy document which was presented to political parties by President of the ILCU Brian McCrory at an International Credit Union Day breakfast in the Davenport Hotel, Dublin this morning.
This International Credit Union Day is particularly significant for credit unions in Northern Ireland, as it was officially announced today by the Irish League of Credit Unions that Belfast will host the World Council of Credit Unions (WOCCU) Annual Global Conference. The Irish League of Credit Unions (ILCU) has today announced the launch of the 32nd All-Ireland Credit Union Art Competition.

I have gone on strike against banks After running a small business for over 14 years, getting gouged right and left for service charges, late charges, and charges just to be charges, I have gotten sick and tired of my hard earned dollars go down some wasteful bin at my local bank. I have no credit cards so there is no temptation for me to overspend on items I really don’t need or want.
I cash my payroll checks at Walmart for just $3.00 – then I upload the money to my WalMart credit card, which means I will now spend only what I have earned – no more, no less. I pay only $4.95 a month for my monthly service charge on my up-loadable credit card, and when I upload my paycheck to the card it is free. I think it’s pretty ridiculous that any bank charges an incoming fee for a large wire.
The only tiny drawback is sometimes a brief wait to cash my check at Walmart – but it’s no more of a wait then the one I used to have standing in line at my bank. I love banking this way but eventually I will probably open a checking account with my credit union if I start getting personal checks from people. I do most of my banking on computer- the bank likes it. Easier for them and for me. There’s no fee on my accounts. Ben) I wouldn’t go around calling people irresponsible because they choose to bank differently than you. I like the new bank laws where you can choose not to let them overdraft anything. However, the fees for using a credit or debit card vary greatly country by country.
