AGM 2018 Highlights

We held our AGM last week, on Monday 22nd upstairs in The Goat. There was a very good turnout of residents, and we had a productive and informative meeting. So what were the main items for discussion?

– We now have a new ‘refurbished’ committee (*see below)
– We are in a strong financial position, and our annual subscription remains at €20 euro for 2018/19.
– We have a total of 290 members (households) in our association, up from 261 last year. This is out of a possible 360 households in our area.
– The Tidy Districts’ group’s exceptional work continues. Please help out where you can.
– The playground in Taney, which opened in April of this year, is a fantastic asset to families in the area. We are also delighted to see the formation of a new residents’ association in Taney, Taney Area Residents’ Association. We have already begun to collaborate with them on various local issues.
– The Goatstown Community Games got off to a flying start in 2018 with our first set of local athletes representing us in Santry during the summer.
– There are three big planning issues of concern to members: Our Lady’s Grove, the IGB site and the Central Mental Hospital. There was a lot of information given, and discussion had, about these three sites.
– Neighbourhood Watch and the Neighbourhood Friendly Initiative will be evolving further over the following year
– Events on the Green: now that we have our own gazebo, nothing can stop the par-tay.
