AGM Update

We had a very busy AGM on March 15th which lasted two hours. Covering a wide range of topics, the hottest discussions were on planning and crime prevention.

Aside from a review of finances, a number of residents raised the issue of Dog Fouling, Dumping of Garden Waste in Fields, Tree cutting and residents parking up on and damaging the grass verges.  Redmond was voted in as Chairman, taking over from Diarmuid who has led our committee of volunteers for over 5 years and many thanks were given to all the committee on the night.

Our newsletter has been well received, you can download a PDF version and we intend to issue another in the Autumn. A number of those who attend also strongly suggested we raise the annual fee to €20, which hasn’t changed in 11 years even though some of our core costs like grass cutting has.  It was unanimously agreed by all attendees and approved  by the committee.

The 9th of April Tidy Up  was discussed and the main aim is to have residents focus on their own roads. We will put up banners the week beforehand and the council will be liaising with us to collect waste. More details will be provided closer to the time.

We intend to distribute a flyer to houses to cover certain topics, to get some new signs made and place them in various spaces.
