75 years, time for a reunion?
Walking through our beautiful blooming town the other day, I couldn’t help noticing a place name stone set in grass saying ‘St. Patrick’s Place, Built 1941’. This, of course, refers to the original houses built in St. Patrick’s Place estate, the first of its kind in Fethard.

Adding and subtracting years between 1941 and 2016 I came up with the figure of 75 years and an appropriate reason to consider a reunion of all those who were connected and remember the many people and families who are living, have lived and died in St. Patrick’s Place. This would also include the three or more additional housing developments added in later years.

Adding and subtracting years between 1941 and 2016 I came up with the figure of 75 years and an appropriate reason to consider a reunion of all those connected, past and present, with the many people and families who have lived and died in St. Patrick’s Place. This would also include the three or more additional housing developments added in later years.

At a recent meeting of Fethard & Killusty Community Council the topic was discussed and agreed to seek a number of interested people in getting involved in organising this proposed reunion, which would involve gathering information, photographs and stories for an event later this year. A similar event was held in 2012 for The Green and Barrack Street, which proved very successful for a large attendance of over 400, many of whom moved from The Green to St. Patrick’s Place when the houses were built in 1941.

If you are interested in getting involved in any way please email: reunion@fethard.com or give your name to Joe Kenny, Rocklow Road, or contact the Community Office, Barrack Street, Tel: (052) 6131000, and leave your mobile number so we can text you with further details if we have sufficient interest.

St Rita’s Camogie Club

St Rita’s camogie team, Fethard, who hosted Camross of Laois in the U14 Féile na nGael tournament last weekend. Back L to R: Sue Quigley, Willie Morrissey, Heather Spillane, Niamh Hayes, Emily Ryan, Megan Quigley, Aoife Morrissey, Rachel Butler, Àine Ryan, Ava Hickey, Eimear O'Connor, Margaret Hogan, Sandra Spillane. Front L to R: Leah Coen, Nell Spillane, Alison Connolly, Dearbhla Morrissey, Carrie Davey, Erin O'Brien, Jess Strappe, Eabha Hogan and Joan Hickey.

On June 17, St Rita’s, Fethard, hosted Camross of Laois U14 Féile camogie team. It has been 25 years since the last Féile was hosted in Fethard, with our girls raising the same banner which was used in 1991, hand painted at the time by Kathleen Kenny, The Green.

Our first match was against Naas who proved to be very strong and by far the strongest in our group, going on to win the cup. Our girls were a little shell shocked going in to the second match but put up a good fight against Brian Borus, but couldn't get a win on the night. After the games we headed to the Convent Community Hall in Fethard for refreshments and to meet up with the girls we were hosting. A table quiz was held and the girls mingled and got to know each other better.
On Saturday morning at 11.30am we played against our host team Camross in Fethard and our girls came out a different team showcasing some great camogie skills. The spectators were well impressed with the standard of camogie. This win put us through to a quarter-final against Boherlahan and on the day our girls proved very strong and had an easy victory.

Our next venue was Portlaw in Waterford for a semi-final against the home team. This was the match of the tournament, the girls were outstanding never easing up on the pace from start to finish and had a great victory over very strong opponents. Even though all were exhausted, spirits were high going back to the youth centre for barbeque and disco. The final was against our guests Camrosss, in Dundrum on Sunday at 11am. Camross got off to a good start hitting the net in the first minute of the game and went on to add 3 more points to a single point from St Rita’s, leaving the half time score, Camross 1-3 to St Rita’s 0-1.

After half time the girls regrouped and out came a different team with the sliotar hardly even passing the half back line. St Rita’s added 3 more points but failed to get the goal needed to put us ahead. The Camross goalie gave a outstanding display denying the girls on several occasions. Camross ran out the winners 1-3 to St Rita’s 0-4. Congratulations to Camross on their win it was a pleasure to host a lovely bunch of well mannered girls and mentors.

From the U14 mentors a big thank you to the U14 girls for their dedication, effort and respect shown throughout the weekend. Also a thank you to the host families, members of the camogie club, Juvenile club, senior club and all who helped out with the weekend to ensure it was a great success.

Thousands enjoying this year’s Fethard Festival ‘Family Fun Day’.




This year’s Fethard Festival ‘Family Fun Day’, held on Sunday last, June 12, attracted thousands of locals and visitors to come and enjoy the wonderful family celebration in the town park by the Clashawley river and the wonderful medieval town walls.


‘Fethard-on-Sea’, one of the colourful entries in this year’s Fancy Dress Parade at Fethard Festival

This year also saw the revival of the traditional Fancy Dress Parade, which was so popular in the past with children and adults alike. It was very encouraging to see the huge effort by some local families – long associated with fancy dress parades in the past – come out and take part again with a new generation of children and friends. Matty Tynan and his team must also be congratulated on their great re-enactment display ‘Moyglass Salutes 1916’ in the parade and by the town wall. Unfortunately it also coincided with a short heavy downpour that failed to dampen the festive spirit that prevailed throughout the day. The parade was coordinated by Tina (Shortt) Whyte, who deserves great praise for organising the Fancy Dress Parade this year – her first time. We look forward to next year.

Fethard Historical Society had variety of displays in in Holy Trinity Church of Ireland, showcasing the richness of Fethard’s past history and heritage. The model of Fethard c1650 on display in the upstairs gallery has proved very popular with visitors of all ages. A visitor’s book on the ground floor recorded the growing amount of foreign visitors to Fethard on such festive occasions that highlight our unique town.

The Magnier family at Coolmore must be sincerely thanked for their annual support of the ‘Family Fun Day’ and the array of free fun-fair entertainment supplied, which was very much appreciated by families and children from Fethard and the surrounding areas.


Large crowd enjoying the music of ‘Mojo'd’ at the Fethard Festival Family Fun Day 2016


Fethard Rugby Club hosted the barbecue food stall to their usual high-standard, where people could sit and enjoy the music supplied by the very popular Mojo’d blues band from Clonmel. The annual Dog Show was run by Catherine Kearney and Pat Culligan.

Overall, Sunday was a fantastic ‘family fun day’ that will be remembered for years to come, including that heavy downpour, and the radiant sunshine that followed. Great credit is due to all the organisers, stall holders, Garda, Tidy Towns, Red Cross, and local community organisations that worked in unison to provide a unique festival in a unique setting.

Fethard retain Danagher cup after a magnificent display of football on Festival Sunday morning, June 12, beating Clonmel Commercials in an extremely tense and closely fought final. Fethard showed their strength in depth by entering two teams in this year’s Danagher Cup competition for young U8 footballers. Other clubs represented on the day were St. Patrick’s Cloneen, Mullinahone, Moyle Rovers and Clonmel Commercials.

After the group stages only four teams were left remaining in the competition, with Moyle Rovers and Mullinahone contesting the B final, and for the 3rd year running, Fethard and Clonmel Commercials contesting the big one. Both finals were closely fought battles but there can only be one winner, and on this occasion Moyle Rovers won the B final, with Fethard winning the A final.

A big thank you to all clubs for coming with great support and great praise must be giving to all players for representing themselves and their clubs so well. The club would like to thank all the Fethard players and parents in particular for their continued support and commitment. The progress this group of players have shown so far this year has been very encouraging, and the future of Fethard football looks very promising. A big thanks also to parents, club members and mentors who helped out in any way or form to make this a most memorable day for these young future stars. Your efforts were really appreciated.

Security advice for Fethard households
For further information and other crime prevention advice please contact Garda Denis O’Brien at Fethard Garda Station on (052) 6131202 or Sergeant Kieran O’Regan at Clonmel Garda Station on (052) 6177640. As the holiday season approaches and Fethard children finish their exams and school for the summer, families travelling to warmer climates for their holidays will leave their homes vacant for the duration of these holidays. During this time homes are very vulnerable to being burgled causing distress and upset for the homeowners upon their return. With this in mind the local Garda are offering a number of tips that can help deter your home being burgled.

  1. Make sure your house looks like someone is living in it while you are away – this may involve a trusted neighbour opening and closing your curtains, turning your lights on and off or parking their car in your driveway.

  2. Try to avoid discussing your holiday plans where strangers may hear details of your absence from home.

  3. Try avoid posting Facebook updates from airports or while on holidays. This is an indication that your home is vacant.

  4. Leave any important documents and valuable items with other family members or a bank. Alternatively if you have a safe installed in your home you should store them in this safe.

  5. If you normally leave valuable bicycles or similar items in your shed, you may consider putting them into your home.

  6. Cancel any newspaper or milk deliveries to your home. Untouched deliveries are an indication that you are away.

  7. Ensure all windows and doors are securely locked and if your home is alarmed ensure it is set before leaving.

  8. Contact your local Garda Station with the details that your home will be vacant. This allows Gardaí to keep an eye on your home where possible.

For further information and other crime prevention advice please contact Garda Denis O’Brien at Fethard Garda Station on (052) 6131202 or Sergeant Kieran O’Regan at Clonmel Garda Station on (052) 6177640.
