The people running this fundraiser want to help the girls of Athenry camogie teams to finally have their own pitches and grounds. We are the Carnaun Athenry Community Sports and Recreation Campus Company Limited by Guarantee, CRO reg 683187, yes a long name !!. The directors of the company are currently in the process preparing an application to the Charity Regulator for charitable status.
The connection between the company Carnaun Athenry Community Sports and Recreation Campus and Athenry Camogie Club is as follows: The Athenry Camogie Club in early 2020 approved the set-up of a separate committee to identify suitable lands within the Athenry Parish with a view to having available pitches, facilities and amenities for the club and the general community in the future. This committee have decided to form a CLG (not for profit company) for the purpose of procuring a suitable site, development of the site into the desired amenity and management of the facility in the long term. 3 members of the Athenry Camogie Executive are also Directors/Members of the CLG.
It is intended that the finished facility would be a shared sporting and recreation amenity for use by sporting clubs, community groups and individuals. Athenry Camogie Club is the sole sports club involved in this fundraising project. Our main focus is to give Athenry Camogie Teams their own pitches and grounds.
