News and Events Latest News and Press Releases Report from the Clare Association Our Annual General Meeting of the Clare Association of An Taisce is at the Temple Gate Hotel on Tuesday 8 th April starting at 8pm On the Agenda The Burren On considering our Burren land and the funding we have requested, we realised that we have, in fact, complied to most of objectives of the Management Plan and so now we need to rethink the objectives. We also need to consider revising or extending our Burren Management Committee as, starting from September, we will need more hands-on involvement. We are to discuss both the objectives and the membership of our Burren Management Committee and changing it name to Clare Properties Management Committee. Public Participation in new local authorities At our meeting, last October, we informed you of the government’s plan to reorganise the County and local authorities. The ten authorities chosen as test cases proved that the system did not work. The Department of the Environment now proposes a new system and this will be fully discussed at our AGM. We are also considering changing the Association's Standing Order to allow for us to let members know of meetings by email.
