The General of the Augustinian Order visits Fethard
The largest gathering ever of Augustinians took place in Fethard Abbey on Wednesday evening, 28th June when over 70 friars broke from their week-long Province Chapter being held at Limerick University and visited Fethard with the General of the Augustinian Order, Fr Robert Prevost, originally from Canada and now based at St. Monica’s Curia, Rome.  Chapters are held every four years to deliberate the life and work of the Irish Augustinians here in Ireland and in their overseas missions in Nigeria, Kenya, Ecuador and friars also working in USA. Canada, Australia and England.

The Augustinians are this year celebrating 700 years in Fethard. During the Chapter mass held at the Abbey Fethard on Wednesday evening the Prior General confirmed the following named men in office — 4 Province Counsellors: Frs John Hennebry, Rector, Good Counsel College, New Ross; Richie Goode, chaplain Our Lady of Lourdes Hospital, Drogheda; Pat Codd, St. Augustine's Limerick; Michael Brunnock, Prior, St. Patrick's Rome.

Province Secretary: Paddy O'Reilly, Prior St. Augustine's Ballyboden, Dublin (native of Cashel); Province Bursar: Michael O'Sullivan, John's Lane Priory, Dublin.

The new Provincial (leader) of the Augustinian in Ireland is Fr Gerry Horan. Fr Gerry is a Limerick man who spent 20 years teaching at the Order's school, St. Augustine's Dungarvan.  Fr. Jerry has been the Prior of the local Fethard Abbey for the past four years and is well known in Fethard Secondary School where he acts as School chaplain.

Fr John Meagher OSA celebrated the mass and Fr Gerry Horan, the new Provincial, preached. There was a large congregation of Fethard people at the mass, which was marked by wonderful singing from the choir. A group of local ladies provided a lovely meal afterwards for all the Augustinian visitors in a marquee in the Abbey garden.

Malicious Fires
A Fire Brigade had to be called in the early hours of Monday morning to quench a series of fires that were started maliciously.  A resident of the Valley spotted a group of youths setting fire to four round bales of hay in the paddock between the Town Wall and the Clashawley.  Attempts were made to quench the fires, but the fire brigade had to be called when the smouldering bales ignited, as one of the bales was close to a fence that passes directly under an ESB transformer that supplies power to half of the town.

This is the second time in a week that youths have burned bales in fields surrounding the town.  Any information regarding the vandals that started these fires would be appreciated.  The residents of Fethard are getting tired of these youths who destroy parts of the town with graffiti, break windows and now set fire to private property.  Contact  HYPERLINK "mailto:news@fethard.com" news@fethard.com or the local Gardai with any information.  (N.

Top Golfers in Town
Two of the worlds top golfers paid a visit to Fethard last week.  Davis Love III and Fred Couples were in Ireland to play in the JP McManus Pro Am Tournament.  The day after the event, they flew into town to visit Coolmore Stud.  They finished their visit with a trip to McCarthy’s, savouring a pint before flying back to Limerick again.  (N. Gawe)

Preliminary Notice
A Flower Festival will be held in Holy Trinity Church of Ireland, Fethard on Friday 22nd, Saturday 23rd and Sunday 24th July.  Full details next week.

Cane gone Walkies!
A lady residing in Main Street left her walking cane outside her hall door recently.  The cane had disappeared when she realised her mistake.  This distinctive folding cane which was purchased at Knock is of great sentimental value and also in regular practical use.  She is most anxious to discover its whereabouts.  Any information or the cane may be left in at Newports Newsagents.

Tall Ships 2005
A large number travelled from Fethard to Waterford to view the Tall Ships which were docked in the city for three days prior to starting the first leg of the Tall Ships race to France.  Many saw, for the first time, what would have been a common sight in the same harbour a century ago.  Over two thousand crew members of all nationalities mingled with thousands of spectators to create a truly cosmopolitan atmosphere along the banks of the river Suir. Three Irish vessels, the Dunbrody, the Jeanie Johnson and the Asgard II were among a large fleet that gathered from countries as far afield as Oman, Indonesia, India, Russia, the USA and Uruguay.  Many of the boats were open to the public for a number of hours and large numbers got a chance to enjoy tours of the magnificent vessels.  The biggest ship of the lot was a Russian vessel which was receiving a lot of attention as our party passed by …….though the boat itself wasn’t the focal point of interest.  The young men guarding the gangway to the ship cut a dash in their dark uniforms and wide topped sailors hats.  As we watched, a feisty looking young woman marched a line of young-wans across the docks.  They were dressed to impress.  The fourteen lads working high up on the mast left out a cheer as the girls approached the ship.  They were impressed.  The girls were made most welcome.  The party was about to begin.  Elsewhere, people were getting a chance to see the ships from different perspectives.  Ten euro bought a trip up the river between the boats.  For forty-five you could view the whole spectacle from the air as a fleet of helicopters ferried spectators over the city for the day.  Others were cashing in on the sidewalks.  Buskers and Bands entertained while hawkers sold their beads, badges and burgers.  Overall, the atmosphere was friendly and relaxed.  It was an amazing spectacle, which hopefully we will see in Waterford again.  (N.

Fethard Historical Society
Society member and local Tourist Guide, Colm McGrath, led (and drove the bus as well) a very enjoyable outing to Kilree and Kells in nearby Co . Kilkenny on the evening of Friday, 1st of July.  Kells Priory is very impressive indeed, and Kilree monastic site with Round Tower and High Cross is a charming place to visit .The advantage of going by coach was that the group were able to stop for pre-arranged refreshments in Callan without worrying about  ' the legal limit ' !

The Historical Society is also getting involved in the Fethard Flower Festival on Sunday 24th by co-ordinating a local crafts area in the grounds of old Holy Trinity Church and by also providing guides for a tour of the Medieval Town. Contact can be made to the chairperson, Doirin Saurus at 052 31936.

The 2005 Killusty Pony Show was held at Claremore, Killusty, Fethard on Saturday 2nd July.  The Weather Steward will be retained for at least another year as, after a truly appalling weather forecast, he managed to keep the rain away all day so that the Show could go on in unexpected and welcome comfort. In the led Ring the A.I.B. Slievenamon Championship and Best Filly prize went to Joe Whelton’s Golden Grove Skylark bred by a long term stalwart of Killusty Show Sean Maher now sadly gone to his reward. Peter Byrne’s Wyndham Aristocrat filled the Reserve spot. Peter Byrne too has been a great supporter over the years and thankfully he is still with us. The Cup for the best local was taken home by Noel Coffey for his Ballintemple Star, second in the hunter pony young stock. Peter Byrne claimed the Dawn Fresh Foods Championship in the broodmare ring with Wyndham Symphony with West Cork’s Martin O’Sullivan’s Little Blue in reserve. Martin McMahon too came from Cork to claim the Welsh Championship with Muskerry Charisma with Ann Grime’s Windsong Remember Me in reserve. The Butler Connemara Championship went to Dublin with Patrick Geoghegan’s Dangan Patricka topping the list with Joanne O’Connor’s Greyrock Finisterre in reserve. She only had to come down the road from Ballinard.

Numbers were again down in the Show Pony Classes but the Coolmore Killusty Championship was claimed again for Cork by Regina Daly’s Fofsway Symbolene with Ann Grimes Rollswood Joseph in Reserve. Numbers were seriously up in the equitation classes, most particularly in the Equitation Jumping classes and the Tate Croome-Carroll Memorial Equitation Championship was truly earned by Esme Mansergh-Wallace with Chloe Murphy in reserve.

In the Local Handy Pony Class Hazel Sheehan from just down the road from the showgrounds upheld the honour of Fethard and Killusty. The Special Lead Rein Class went slightly further afield , to Louanna Winters in Cahir. The Mini Classes were very well filled with, again, greater numbers in the hunter pony sections. The Mini Championship went home with Sean Scallan’s Barkway Sweet Pea to Wexford with Shane McNamara’s Balllykilty Flame in reserve. The Starter Stakes Championship headed for Kerry with Nikki Taylor’s Valmore Irish Mist coming out tops. This pony has a very local connection too as he is out of Gus Keane’s great old mare Douthwaite Martini who only left Killusty to go to Tom Relihan in Listowel when Gus went to his final home. The reserve in this championship was Patrick Geoghegan’s It’s a Boy Thing..

In the Show Hunter Ring there was no shortage of numbers to select from for Dermot O’Connor. Mrs. Tara Bricknell’s Open Show Hunter Champion was Elizabeth Freeman’s Moelgarnedd Dymuniad. The lovely little Welsh mare had as her reserve Basil Brindley’s Chantilly Phantom, having another great year. The Lady Lloyd Webber’s Novice Show Hunter Champion was Lorli Higgins Ballyboy Perry Merry with Erica Leonard’s Ringwood Puzzle from Limerick in Reserve. At the end of the day the Intermediate Champion did not come form the Show hunter division but from the workers with Con Davis Captain Scarlet shading it from Catherine Rawluk’s Littlejon

Thw Working Hunter Rings were in operation from early to late. Tony Ennis’ well designed and strongly built courses tested the competitors in noo uncertain fashion. The Gain Animal Feeds Novice Working Hunter Championship went to Moelgarnedd Dymuniad who had a great day all round. The Clonmel Oil Working Hunter Championship went to Linda Young’s Ardfry Ahab with Inspector Morse in reserve. Jean Pim’s Performance Working Hunter Championship was again Ardfry Ahab with Anarette Geoghegan’s Westmir Queen in reserve. The Green Working Hunter Class attracted a massive entry and was duly won by Matthew Holohan, the boy from down the road whose Grandfather Billy had been a founding member of Killusty Show on Boolagh Matilda. The Show started promptly at 10 am and all but the last equitation jumping competition was finished before 6 pm letting most tired competitors and there ponies get home in good time.
