Put the following task into your antrun plugin configuration:

<echo>Running from project ${project.groupId}:${project.artifactId}</echo>

Why does this work? Even though the plugin configuration is inherited
from the parent, the properties are resolved in the context of the
actually executing POM, that is: if the plugin runs in the child module,
you'll get the child module's groupId and  artifactId printed.
