The Board of Caherconlish Caherline Community Council: The Millennium Centre will remain closed due to fire damage . Hopefully, the repairs will start shortly, and we will update you with a reopening date as soon as we have one. Our main phone lines are down, so please contact Declan on 085 2885181 for any inquiries or bookings. Thanks for your patience and many offers of help.

The Caherconlish Caherline Community Council EGM & AGM was held on December 14th, 2021, and the following resolutions were passed : Articles - Clause 47. Directors. The number of the directors shall be not less than three (3) and unless and until determined by the Company in general meeting, not more than eleven. Memorandum of Association. Subsidiary objects/Powers. The existing section 4 powers are replaced by the powers as laid out in the Charities regulator template and retain the old subsidiary object (relating to the club licence - now clause 4.29.). Re-order and renumber clauses. Annual Subscription- Clause 45. (Change the due date from July to January). Such subscription shall be payable in advance on the first day of January each year. Notices- Clause 84: A notice may be given by the Company to any member either personally or by sending it by post to their registered address, or by email to their registered email address.

A copy of the constitution is available by emailing

The AGM resulted in the election of the following directors: Wesley Power (Chairperson), Susan Pratt (Secretary), Margaret Ryan, Fr. Roy Donovan (Asst. Chairperson), Kieran English, Marian Kirby, Rena Carroll, Tommy O’Connell (Treasurer), Mike Walsh (Asst. Secretary), Nancy Lane and Kitsy Hickey

Some of the outcomes for the past year - Energy subcommittee & energy upgrade (aiming to be carbon neutral), Upgrade of website & social media, Tennis Club Feasibility study, Refurbishment of the kitchen & upstairs office, Meals on wheels (supported by the community). However, none of the achievements would have been possible without the contribution from the hard-working team of staff, volunteers, and the subcommittees of the Millennium Centre. We are now faced with the challenge of recovering from the damage of the fire in September. However, there is work going on in the background and we will see the contractors on-site in the next few weeks and we hope to be returning to normal business in March 2022 (subject to completion of the necessary works).
