Feathard Lady’s Record Price

Lord of the Rings Syndicate, owners of 'Feathard Lady'. Back L to R: Peter Nolan, James Cooney, Joe Bradshaw, Bob Grant, Sean Óg Ryan, Davy Maher, Bob Maher. Front L to R: Dwayne Mulligan, Justin Maher, Stuart Looby, Cathal Ryan, Philip Furnell and Mark Moloney. Also in the syndicate is Seamus McGowan.

Not so long ago a group of local racing enthusiasts watching racing on TV in Butler’s Bar, Main St. decided to form a syndicate and purchase a race horse.  Peter Nolan, one of the group was appointed to make the purchase.  He bought a mare by Accordian out  of Lady Roife, she was put in training at Nolan’s yard in Co. Wexford and thus the Lord of the Rings Syndicate was born.  The lads certainly hit the jackpot.  The mare was named Feathard Lady and won seven races including the Straw James Christmas Hurdle at Sandown on 26th December ’05 and looked definite Champion Hurdle Material, when unfortunately a tendon injury ended what promised to be an outstanding racing career.  Her moments of glory were not however yet ended.  The mare was entered for sale at the 2007 August Doncaster Sales and was sold for 270,000 guineas – a record price for a National Hunt Broodmare.  Perhaps the Lord of the Rings Syndicate encouraged by their success in their first venture into the racing game may be tempted to try their luck again.  Best of luck and every success if they do decide to do so.

Fethard GAA Club News
The Senior Football South Final held on Sunday last was a very close encounter with a mighty task asked of our team.  Having been reduced to 14 players after only 7 minutes of the game they knuckled down to the task in hand. Despite getting within two points, Moyle Rovers scored a goal on the last kick of the game and we lost on a scoreline, Fethard 0-10, Moyle Rovers 2-10.  On the day we had fine displays from Paul Fitzgerald, backs Cian Maher and Damien Byrne, his best game of the year, and forwards Christopher Sheehan, Eoin Doyle, John P Looby and Brian Coen who scored seven points. Team was: Paul Fitzgerald, Benny Hahessy, Michael Aherne, Ian Kenrick, Damien Byrne, Cian Maher, Glen Burke, Aiden Fitzgerald, Jamie McCormack, Eoin Doyle 0-1, Stephen O’Donnell, John P Looby 0-1, Willie Morrissey, Brian Coen 0-7 (5F), Christopher Sheehan 0-1. Subs used were: Micéal Spillane for Stephen O’Donnell, Kenneth O’Donnell for Willie Morrissey (inj), Shane Walsh (blood sub), and Michael Dillon for Jamie McCormack. The county quarterfinals are due to be played on weekending 7th October. We await our opponents.

In Junior A Football we play Cahir on this Sunday 30th September in Monroe at 1.30pm with a place in the final stages for the winner.  Extra time will be played in the event of a draw.

The much-awaited game against Cahir in Under 21 B Hurling is fixed for Saturday 29th September in Ned Hall Park at 5.00pm.
