We hope all our readers had a very Happy Easter in particular all those who came home to Fethard to celebrate the religious feast with their families and friends. Following a very well attended successful Novena to Our Lady of Perpetual Help the numbers attending Easter Week ceremonies appeared to be somewhat down with the exception of Easter Sunday Mass.

Socially there was great activity with visitors, music and lots of birthday parties celebrated in the town.

Fethard Juvenile GAA Club News
Fethard Juvenile Club held their annual Church Gate Collection and would like to thank everybody that donated so generously. An amazing total of over €1,000 was collected between the parishes of Killusty and Fethard and we cannot thank you enough for your kind donations and generosity. This money will go to a worthy cause. Go raibh maith agat.

Due to the weather conditions some matches are now behind schedule but our u14s were away to Clerihan on Easter Monday and on a very wild, wet and windy evening they played in the first round of their South Championship bid and came away with a very convincing win. A great performance throughout the team with Eoin O’Donovan, Alex O’Donovan and Jody Sheehan in the backline defending made it hard for Clerihan to break through and score. There were goals aplenty scored on the night by Adam Fitzgerald (1-01), Tommy Anglim (2-1), Eoghain Hurley (2-0) and Dean Dorney (2-0), with Kyle Walsh having a great game in the number eleven jersey. Niall Doocey had a great game in the number seven jersey, with David Morgan making some great contributions to the game as well. Paul Maloney had a great defensive game and Charlie Manton didn’t have much to do in goal. Tom Condon came on for Willie O’Meara. The final score on the night 7-2 to 1-2.

Members are reminded that their membership fees are overdue and need to be paid and also they are asked to be in the changing rooms on Friday evening at 6.10pm to have their team photos taken. This should not take long and they will be given jerseys to wear for these photos.

Friends of Kabongo
Good afternoon to all our "Friends of Kabongo" and greetings for a Happy Easter to you all wherever you happen to be. All well here with myself and our work in Kabongo and I thank God for that and for the many friends we have around the world. It would be an understatement to say that without your support very little would be accomplished here for poor children. We are now giving a good education to just over 430 poor children and feeding just over 300 of them on a twice-daily basis. I suspect that this latter number will rise next term. May God Bless you. I hope to see as many of you as possible sometime later in the year. In the meantime, stay well and be happy.

Gratefully yours, Bro. Paul D. Brennan, Project Manager at Kabongo. Mobile Number: +254 722 377 509. Postal address: Box 5064, Eldoret, Kenya 30100.

Mick Flannery for the Abymill
Mick Flannery for the Abymill

In the last couple of years Mick Flannery has gone from part time stonemason to one of Ireland's most sought after musicians. Currently writing his third album, a follow up to the hugely praised ‘White Lies’ he has played a string of sold out shows all over Ireland, one of the most notable being a double headline show at the Marquee Cork with John Spillane. Last year he was nominated for the Choice album awards, was cited as ‘Most Promising Newcomer’ by Hotpress readers (also making it into their 250 best Irish albums) and won ‘Best Male’ at the Meteor Awards.

Flannery is a refreshingly unassuming artist whose sole focus seems to be on his craft, song-writing. A Mick Flannery gig has a feeling of intimacy to it, Flannery’s stage presence exudes no superficial gimmicks, just a man sharing his songs in an understated but powerful manner.

But if asked, Mick adamantly refuses to talk about himself or his achievements; he shies away from these things. Though it’s hard to get this talented musician to open up about himself in a conversation, the heartfelt honesty in his lyrics speaks in reams. That’s why he has so far been compared to such great songwriters as Bruce Springsteen and Tom Waits.

The year 2009 was more than a successful year for Flannery with two sold out Vicar Street shows, a re-release of his platinum selling critically acclaimed album White Lies and collaborations with Kate Walsh, John Spillane and more. Who knows what 2010 has in store.
Mick plays the Abymill Theatre on Saturday 8th May with his band. Tickets are €20 from McCarthy’s Fethard, O’Flynn’s Fethard and Premier Music Store Clonmel. Support on the night is from the Galway based Fethard musician Aidan Ward.
