St. Michael’s Credit Union are proud to be the main sponsor of The Rockies Academy over the next three years. This is a major commitment by the credit union to further develop our partnership with a local sporting organisation that has proudly served the community since 1883. The Rockies hold more Senior County Hurling titles or All-Ireland Club Championships than any other in Cork. We are delighted to be partnering with a club that has such a proud heritage but are not resting on their history and are motivated by the future. With the clubs focus on developing the future hurling and camogie stars of Cork.
Through St. Michael’s Credit Unions support of the Rockies Academy and its fantastic work with the children of Blackrock and Mahon can continue and develop. Currently, there are over 1,400 children involved with the club on a weekly basis, including a schools training outreach program. This partnership is one of the ways in which St. Michael’s Credit Union is fulfilling its commitment to our shared local community. With the Rockies Academy holding events throughout the year they are a leading local organisation in teaching children the importance of being healthy and active.
The Rockies are focused on establishing a country leading coaching system. To continue the clubs successes and this constantly begins with the establishment of strong youth system. This is very similar to the approach of St. Michael’s Credit Union for including children from the local area. Many aspects of the Rockies ethos echoes that of St. Michael’s Credit Union and we look forward to this partnership of two stalwarts of the community continuing and developing for years to come.
As a local organisation for over 54 years, St. Michael’s Credit Union is committed to supporting the community. In 2016 your credit union provided €10,000 to support local initiatives that help make our community a better place. Our concern for our community is something we’re immensely proud of and think it is something that sets us apart.
