Awards Day 2010, October 15, dawned bright and sunny, appropriate weather for a special occasion. It commenced with mass in the assembly hall at 11am celebrated by Canon Tom Breen P.P., who as ever gave solid words of encouragement to our students.

The theme of the mass was “Love . . . Learn . . . Live”, which was delightfully displayed by our 2nd Year students under the watchful eye of Mrs Maher and Ms Barrett of the R.E. Department.
Kevin Hickey, our organist, and Mrs Gilpin provided the choir made u of boys and girls from 1st Year to 6th Year. Our guests for the occasion were past-pupil Mr Michael O’Donnell and his wife Kitty, and Ms Éilis Humphries of the ‘Le Chéile Trust’.
Michael addressed the students and told them a little about school life with the brothers in ‘The Monastery’ as it was called in those days.

Michael has recently launched his ‘History of Fethard, 1200 – 2000’, a work of love much of which was completed during his retirement. He encouraged the students to grasp the opportunity to do something fulfilling at whatever period, or time, in their life that the opportunity arose.

‘A Life’ surely belongs to the great Irish tradition of storytelling and conveys a palpable sense of place in the glimpses of small town life, the mores of the times, as well as the day-to-day detail. This is work of universal insight into human weaknesses and strengths, and the knotty criss-crosses of personality and relationships.

The play is produced by Austin O’Flynn with the following cast: Anne Connolly, Marian Gilpin, Colm McGrath, Liam O’Connor, Mia Treacy, Ann Kennedy, Pat Brophy and Kieran Mullally.

Booking has now opened at O’Flynn’s Menswear, Burke Street, Fethard, Tel: 052 6131254 or 087 1604260. Tickets are €15 for adults and €10 for children. Curtain 8.15pm.

No Youth Officer for Fethard
South Tipperary T.D. Tom Hayes criticised the government for not allocating funding to appointing a Youth Officer for the Fethard area.

“I tabled a Parliamentary Question to Minister of State in the Department of Health, with Special Responsibility for Children, to push for funding to be allocated for a Youth Officer in Fethard. I am very disappointed with his reply that a Youth Officer cannot be appointed to the town, which has a large population of young people”, Tom Hayes said.

“Young people, now more than ever, need facilities and services to educate them and guide them. With the economic situation in this country, families are struggling desperately to make ends meet, and the government needs to help them.

Youth Officers play a fantastic role in organising activities, helping young people get into studies and training, bring the community together to really improve the lives of young people. Engagement in society and in education is vital, and Youth Officers also play a huge role in preventing young people from slipping into crime."

"Fethard's young people have good facilities available to them, and a Youth Officer would make a huge difference to managing and maximising those facilities. Fethard's Fuse Youth Club runs on Monday nights and puts on so many activities for young people - art competitions, karaoke. The Youth Centre is open as a drop-in centre."

"All of these activities are impressive and add hugely to the facilities for young people in Fethard. At present, more volunteers are needed to help run the centre. A Youth Officer would provide great organisation to the centre and would mean that young people can get so much more out of it. I will continue to push for the Minister to allocate a Youth Officer to Fethard,"
Tom Hayes T.D. said.

Horses and hounds setting off at the Opening Meet of Tipperary Foxhounds in Fethard

Favoured by a crisp autumn day eighty-five mounted followers plus an extra large crowd of foot-followers and supporters and what must have been a record number of car followers turned out for the opening meet of the Tipperary Foxhounds in Fethard on Bank Holiday Monday.

The traditional stirrup cup was served at McCarthys and, prior to the commencement of the 2010–11 season, the hounds were blessed by Rev. Canon Breen P.P.

Hounds moved off to the first draw, unfortunately foxes were very hard to find on Monday. Drawing up from Monroe Boreen, The Lane, McCarthy’s Bog and all Rathvin proved blank. Hounds did eventually find behind Mr Sean Kelly’s.

This fox ran towards the Fethard-Killenaule Road but quickly got to ground. The main covert at Rocklow was very surprisingly also blank. This covert has seldom, if ever, failed to hold.

Moving up towards Ballyvaden hounds did not find again until reaching the first fort in Murdoch’s. The fox from here just ran a few small circles from the covert and was lost.

That was about it. Such are the fortunes of hunting. The same area this time twelve months ago held at least four-and-a-half brace. However, there is a long season ahead and there will be many more good days to come.

With the White Heathers
The Ballyluskey White Heather Harriers had a wonderful hunt on Sunday last, the problem was no one except the hounds were able to enjoy it. Drawing ‘Dark Kyleavalla’, on Slievenamon, famed in song and story hounds quickly found.

Hunting well in covert they were quickly away left-handed on top. Running across by the Holy Year Cross they hunted through Walshbog Wood by the Gort-na-phoise Reservoir, through Peafield and Seven Acres to Kylatlea. This forest must cover at least two square miles. Huntsman and followers did their best to keep in touch with the cry following by car through Loughcopple, Killusty, Cloran Old and along the Mountain Road. When they finally made contact hounds were running towards historic Carraigmoclear.

Getting in contact was not too hard but collecting them was not quite so easy. They came to the horn quickly enough with one exception, this chappie finally came to hand at 4pm. This concluded a rather long day for huntsman, followers and hounds which commenced at 8am.
It would appear that the quarry hunted on Sunday was something larger than a fox.

The opening meet of the Ballyluskey White Heathers meet on Sunday next, October 31, in Drangan. The season will continue in Cloneen on Sunday, November 7, and at Loughcopple on November 14. All meets at 11am.

The November Ballyluskey White Heathers members and friends draw will take place on Tuesday, November 9.

Fethard J2 rugby team win in Gleeson League
Fethard J2s played Clanwilliam in the 4th round of the Gleeson League on Sunday morning last in what were ideal conditions for rugby. The first 15 minutes were dominated by Clanwilliam and after two five yard scrums, a good move by the back row saw a well deserved try in the corner. This seemed to wake up the Fethard lads and constant driving from James Smith and Paddy Teehan saw Fethard awarded two penalties which Declan Doyle duly converted.
Fethard dominated proceedings now and some great runs from Mush Dwyer and Nicko Hoynes saw Brian Murphy feed Cathal Gorey who burst in for a fine try. Alan O’Connor then made a fine break and he passed to Shane Kavanagh who touched down in the corner.

At half time Fethard introduced John Hannigan, Paul Scully and Paul Ronan as the pack proceeded to dominate exchanges. Further tries from Gorey and Kavanagh sealed the game, while Clanwilliam never gave up and scored just before the finish. Fethard can take a lot from this game with good performance in the centre from Chris Large and Richard Gorey while Liam Redmond and Martin Murphy had fine games. In the pack, John Smullen, Kevin Hayes and Emmet Sheridan were to the fore. We also welcome back Cian Moloney from his travels, and next week we face Kilfeacle, away.

Fethard under-13s played another great game against a bigger Thurles team on Sunday morning last and finished with a well deserved win. It was great to see good performances coming from some of the new lads, especially Conor Peacock, Ronan Kelly, Adam Morrow, Andrew O’Connell, Griffin Ivors and Bill Phelan.

Fethard, who played an expansive game, saw great runs from Luke Grant, Cathal Fogarty, Richie Ivors and Larry Gleeson which lead to some fine tries. Philip Fogarty, Mark Collins, Connie Coen and Gearóid Fahey were always putting Fethard into an attacking situation. This was a fine performance from these young lads as we look forward to the season ahead.

Fethard under-8s played in their first Munster Blitz on Sunday. After losing the first match to the hosts Clanwilliam, they produced a great display of rugby in the second match against Nenagh. With some great passing and good running Fethard proved to strong for their opponents.

Almost before they realised it, the under-9 team were four tries down at half time against a strong and determined Clanwilliam side. From the restart Eoin Walsh led the charge with strong running and brave tackling. Jack Hassett, Ben Purcell and Ian Harrington made some clever darts through the strong Clan team. Darragh Hurley was always looking for space and when it opened he was through with pace to score in the corner.

Back came Clan with big runs but Matt Burke stood strong and turned over the ball on several occasions. Adam O’Sullivan pounced and, with Matthew Gleeson and Ethan Coen in support, moved the ball close to the Clan line. A quick ruck pulled the ball right and Fethard were in again in the corner.

Clan responded scoring a quick try in the corner. Back came Fethard and with Ian Harrington dancing through small gaps yards were punched into Clans half. Darragh Hurley showed great pace to get further up the field. The impressive Eoin Walsh eventually scoring a great team try in the corner. Clan won on the scoreboard but the boys showed their pride in the second half by outscoring them by 4 to 2.
Next up was Nenagh. This was a totally different game with a lot of sticky mauls and slow ball. However, Fethard rolled up their sleeves and got stuck in. Ben Purcell tackled any Nenagh player who came around the fringes. Adam O’Sullivan again used the ball well and gained good yardage, as did Jack Hassett showing great flair going forward.

Ethan Coen stripped a ball from a maul and galloped over for a great try. Fethard had their noses in front now but Nenagh were not out. A blistering run should have yielded a score but Matthew Gleeson tackled his man into touch to save the day. Meanwhile in the engine room the hard tackling Matthew Burke also carried the ball well for hard yards. The game ebbed and flowed and with the final whistle honours were even. A good days sport no doubt, once the boys got going they played great team rugby. Well done lads.

Our under-11s went up against a strong Clanwilliam side at the weekend and although the match was lost and we failed to score. All ten players kept defending to the end. Tackling has improved and the team put up a strong defence for most of the match. The weather did affect our attack and cold hands resulted in a lot of handling errors.

Please remember that the mornings are much colder now so a minimum of three layers is recommended for training and matches. Gloves and hats can also be worn. See you all at training 6.45pm on Friday night.
