It’s Back, RTE are showing this Summers hit ‘The Borrowers’ Monday nights at 8:30pm from 30th September.

Fantastic News ! Due to popular demand RTE One are re-running ‘The Borrowers’ Monday nights from 30th September. 

Cara Credit Union was the focus of the eight-part RTE One series titled The Borrowers, now showing on RTE One, Monday nights at 8:30. The fly-on-the-wall programme will take viewers behind the scenes and into a credit union loan office, for the first time ever on Irish television.

Viewers will see real Cara Credit Union members applying for loans and hear all of the unique reasons behind the loan applications. Cara Credit Union’s popular loan officers, Maurice O’Donoghue and Derry Fleming also feature prominently in the show.

Along with Cara Credit Union, the show also follows other borrower’s stories in Mullingar Credit Union, St Dominic Credit Union in Waterford and Heritage Credit Union in Dublin.

There are some unforgettable moments in the show courtesy of our loan officers, Maurice  and Derry, while our ‘borrowers’ are of course the stars of the show. Each of the eight episodes is at times heart-warming, entertaining and tear-jerking – viewers will not want to miss a moment. If anyone watching the show feels like they could benefit from our services at the credit union, call into us at or contact us at Cara Credit Union in Tralee, Castleisland and Killorglin.

Don’t miss The Borrowers, RTE One every Monday at 8.30pm, commencing on September 30th.
