Irish CU league helps members buy computers
DUBLIN, Ireland (11/19/07)--Irish credit unions have begun a program, which is part of the government-backed Home Computing Initiative, to help their members buy computers. About 60 credit unions who are members of the Irish Credit Union League are offering the computer deal, which makes low-cost loans and discounts on desktop and laptop computers available to participants (Irish Independent Nov. 14). “The program offers many of our members their first opportunity to own a home computer and become technologically connected to the wider world, improving skills and gaining access to all the Internet has to offer,” Liam O’Dwyer, chief executive of the league, said in a statement. Three million credit union members can take advantage of this program, which gives discounts up to 800 euros (about $1,170). Interest rates offered in the initiative compare well to in-store financing, said an Irish league spokesman.
