    Default Ethical Banking Options in Ireland

    Considereing the possibility of making some ethical investment, I was looking into the Triodos Bank.
    They're originally a dutch bank but have been operating in the UK for years

    Interestingly, theyre pr section say they only lend money they actually have on deposit, so are not exposed to or affected by the credit crunch.

    Anyway, I found a page relating to Ireland (here), and although they offer loans to Irish ventures they say:

    We cannot, however, offer personal banking services in Ireland.
    Almost sounds as if ethical banking was not allowed here !

    Anyone know of any ethical banks operating here? People have mentioned credit unions to me, but don't they keep their money in main stream bank accounts?

    I was in England in 04' when I made the move back to Ireland.

    The market was finished. I cashed out. I moved back to Dublin but bought a house in Carlow and a second house in Longford.

    Yeah you bet I;m feeling proper smug.

    Rahood, you've been warned about throwing randon abuse around on this website before. if you won't have anything to add to a thread apart from mindless name calling then don't contribute at all.

    Rahood's smugness aside - does anyone have anything to contribute re ethical banking her in Ireland?

    Given the thread title I thought this should be in the humour section.

    I wonder would they loan you money to start up an ethical bank here.

    I actually wondered about that. Well not me, but somebody might start it. I think they used to have a rep in Dublin, but no longer it seems. A pity as it seems they support a lot of good work here.
