The charity race night held in McCarthy’s for the Niall O’Riordan fund was an overwhelming success. Friends and family of Niall turned up in large numbers to help support his community work in Uruguay. The hard effort put in by Niall’s friends paid off, with over €11,000 being raised on the night.

The organizers would like to thank everybody who sponsored the runners, riders and races, all those who turned up and bet on the night, and those who donated at the charity auction.

On Sunday last Fethard J2s welcomed Newcastle West for the second round of the Gleeson league and from the very start it was obvious this was going to be a tough physical game.

It was Fethard who put the first points on the board to punish Newcastle West for indiscipline with a well-taken penalty kick from Declan Doyle. It wasn’t until midway through the first half that Cathal Gorey scored a good try breaking through three tackles to score, with Declan Doyle adding the conversion.

Just before half-time Newcastle West got a well-worked try leaving the score Fethard 10, Newcastle West 5.

In the second half, as a result from some fine forward play, Paul Dwyer scored a good try. Newcastle West weren’t long bouncing back and scored a well-earned try.

For the Under 9s, Matthew Burke is pictured looking for a way past the Thurles boys. Also in the photo are L to R: Adam Thompson, Angus MacDonald, Anthony Wall (coach, and referee for the day), Richard Anglim, and Ryan Walsh.

From mid-way in the second half Fethard were under attack from a tough set of backs. With ten minutes left on the clock Fethard broke and mauled the ball up the field well. Newcastle West gave away a penalty which Declan Doyle scored leaving the score Fethard 18 Newcastle West 10.

This is a game that Fethard should have closed out mid-way in the second half but up against a tough side like Newcastle West, who never gave up, Fethard had to tackle hard and defend well. It was a well-earned victory.

On Sunday last our ‘minis’ took to the field against Thurles. It was great to see so many young players out on the day. All the Fethard teams played very well. Training continues every Friday night at 6.45 pm.

In the Under 12s game, Ross McCormack was one of the stand-out players with a tally of four tries.

Fethard Under-15s took on Dungarvan, which was our first league match as Clonmel failed to show the previous weekend. This new look team comprised of most of last years under-13 East Munster champions team and the eligible players in their second year at under-15 level.

Fethard opened their account with a superb long run in try by Adam Fitzgerald in the corner. Some tackling errors by Fethard let Dungarvan in for a soft try but with excellent passing kept the lead in the first half.

Darren Prout out paced his man and scored a signature try. Captain Tommy Anglim tackled very well causing a loose ball to be gathered by Ben Murray and linking up with team-mates scored an opportunistic try stretching Fethard’s lead.

Dungarvan came back but Kieran Whyte’s try-saving tackles, kept the home team in front. Substitutions were made and this gave a great chance to all to make the position their own.

Some great individual performances by Eoghan McCormack at nine and the new front row of the two Cathals and Jason Ryan. Rory Hayes also put in a mammoth game and made way for Niall Kelly in the second half.

Thomas McGabhain’s inspiring breaks showed everyone that this team means business for the season ahead. Final score was 31-24.
Training next Friday should see the return of all the remaining eligible players, which will be needed when we will travel to Waterpark on Sunday, October 17.

Fethard Under-17s played their first league match on Sunday last against Nenagh. This was a very exciting game with Nenagh showing the game until the last ten minutes, when Fethard got a fine try by Dylan Fitzgerald, followed by a penalty, leaving Fethard in front at a crucial time to take the victory.

This was a very good team performance from Fethard with Dylan Fitzgerald popping up in all the right areas at all the right times to be Fethard's main tally’s man on the day.
