Membership:The ADC is a voluntary organisation and a community resource for organisations, groups and individuals in the parish. Our editorial provides details of some of the many campaigns and issues we are involved with locally. The ADC office responds quickly to any issues you might raise and campaigns constantly for a better quality of life in the Athenry area. As a voluntary organisation, the ADC relies on various sources of funding. One of the important sources is contributions from our members. The membership of the ADC has a broad representative base in the Athenry and Newcastle Parishes.

However, we are always delighted to welcome new members and particularly the many new residents who have come to live in the area recently As part of our membership campaign a member of the Executive Committee will be visiting each household in the Parish to outline the benefits of membership of the ADC. The membership fee is very small but very valuable and allows us to continue our work.

Athenry Community Information Technology Centre:

Do you want to know about computers and the internet but were afraid to ask?

In the autumn the ADC will be opening an Information Technology Centre. This Centre will be a resource for everybody to use. The focus of the Centre will be for you to learn in a relaxed and friendly environment. If you have little or no knowledge of computers but would like to learn – this is the place for you! So, be first in the queue and contact the ADC office today with your contact details.

Athenry Community Maintenance Services

Under the umbrella of the Social Economy Programme at the ADC we operate a Community Maintenance Service. We can provide general painting and decorating, gardening and carpentry at very reasonable rates. The team is supervised by that well-known veteran hurler and skilled carpenter Pat Higgins.
