Taking and Writing Minutes By Muintircork on 08 Dec 2014 09:51 am The minutes are a permanent record of an Organisation’s activities and decisions.  They should, therefore, be written on a hard backed copy (or typed and then paste the sheets on to the copy). Loose leaf files are not acceptable because minutes could be altered or removed without this action being noticeable. This good Secretary will not record every minute detail that went on at the meeting. The following passages illustrate the right and wrong way to do things.   The Chairperson stated that we need to make a decision on whether to have a band or disco at the annual fundraiser for the Community Centre. John Lynch felt that a disco would attract a lot of young people and the possibility of trouble. Mary Dalton thought the disco was very successful last year. Tom Murphy felt we would get wider support from the community if we had a band. Michael Brady agreed with this. Eventually it was decided to get a band. Accounts like this are too long winded and you lose people’s attention. It is better to take concise notes at the meeting as follows: Item 7:

Alive O Festival

Here is the presentation made by Ciara Brennan as part of the Alive O Festival. It is well worth a read – it gives both a concise overview of parish as it is – as well as a comprehensive treatment of the challenges facing us for the years ahead.     Killeagh Inch 2020   I was asked to give this talk as a member of community. In my personal capacity I am delighted to address the subject of Killeagh/Inch 2020.   What I would like to do in the course of the next 20 minutes or so is look at the amenities that the Killeagh/Inch community currently has to offer and look to the challenges which both The Killeagh/Inch community and indeed any other rural town in Ireland faces over the coming years.   The Killeagh / Inch community as a rural Irish parish has experienced many changes over the past number of years and many changes can be expected by 2020. It is difficult to predict these changes but we can look at how we can work together to make our community a better place to live and work. Even looking back 10 / 15 years ago who would have thought
