Your Club Your Say
The club is embarking on the preparation of a strategic 5-year plan to follow on from the previous document which covered 2007 to 2012.Our main objective is to ensure that we continue to serve our members, supporters and the community that sustains us to the highest standard possible. The Plan will be a road map for the future of CLG Na Dunta and will address the key issues facing us over the next 5 years. We want as many ideas and points of view as possible. Don’t worry if you have never been involved in the club before, we will take all ideas on board no matter how big or small. We will be holding a public meeting in the clubhouse on Tuesday 12th March at 8pm and everybody is welcome.
