Clonacody House hosts unique event this weekend
Growers preparing the grounds at Clonacody House for this Saturday's 'Spring Into Smallholding' event open to all.
Growers preparing the grounds at Clonacody House for this Saturday's 'Spring Into Smallholding' event open to all.

This bank holiday weekend will see a ground-breaking event in Fethard, South Tipperary. 'Spring Into Smallholding' is an event on Saturday, April 30, aimed at all those people who have taken an interest in producing food in their own back yard. Throughout the day there will be demonstrations and classes on vegetable growing, starting out with pigs and poultry, beekeeping and working with horses. There will also be a market with plants, seeds, livestock and equipment, as well as hot pork rolls from Ashgate Butchers and plenty of other refreshments.

The event takes place at Clonacody House, where the walled kitchen garden is being restored by Silverwood Events, who are also organising the fair. The garden is a full hectare, and still retains most of its original fruit trees and the bones of seed-beds and glasshouses.
Previous owner Bitsy Carrigan kept the garden in full production up until 1990. Her daughter, Helen, now wants to see the garden returned to its former glory. "I can remember we had every kind of vegetable in the garden ," she says, "and it's wonderful to see it coming back to life".

The house has already been restored, and now offers top class accommodation and facilities, which makes it possible for courses and events to be held in the grounds.

Proceeds from the smallholders fair will fund the works in the garden. Organiser Lily de Sylva says, "So many people are looking at producing their own food these days. It might be because they want organic, or better quality, or just to save a bit of money, Whatever the reason, it's important to know what you're doing, especially with animals. Ideally, at this event, I'd like people to come and get the advice they need, pick up some skills, buy all the equipment they need and go home ready to get started!"

There is an entry fee of €5 for adults, and children go free. All workshops are free of charge. There are still a few spaces left for stallholders. Contact Lily on 0505 42806 or 087 6128577.

Fethard Macra News
Here at Fethard Macra the club would like to thank all those who supported our recent club fundraiser held in Cloneen. A social evening in the Sports and Social club was held on Holy Thursday night with music provided by the 'Loose Canons'. A good sized crowd attended on the night and we would like to thank them all sincerely for their support and also thanks to those who purchased tickets in order to support us but did could not make it on the night to join us. We also wish to show our appreciation for members of other South Tipperary clubs who turned up in droves and to our sponsors who provided raffle prizes on the night.

On April 14, a number of club members attended a meeting with IFAC accountants from Cahir who briefed us on the implications of the last budget. All members agreed that it was a useful and informative discussion. We thank the Coachhouse pub in Clonmel for facilitating the event and allowing us use of their upstairs meeting room.

The club wishes our PRO, Noel Clancy, all the best this Thursday, April 28, as he represents the club in the Irish Farm Centre in Dublin. Noel is shortlisted for interview along with other Macra members from around the country for the RDS 2011 Sheep Scholarship, the prize being a travel bursary of €3,000.

Shortly plans will be afoot within the club for the annual Fethard Macra Field Day here in Fethard.

Volleyball continues every Tuesday night in Clerihan, all club members in the region are welcome.

For more on Fethard Macra or to become a member telephone our chairperson, David Ryan on 087 9454384.

Locals came out in their hundreds to watch sisters Mary Ellen and Bridget O'Reilly travel by horse-driven coach to Holy Trinity Parish Church where they both got married in a double wedding ceremony. The individual brides and their bridesmaids were dressed in contrasting styles and colours and created quite a stir on a beautiful April's day in Fethard as they arrived for the ceremony.

Pics of the Past update
Dinny Burke
Dinny Burke receiving cup from South Chairman, Jim Gleeson.

Gerry Leahy sent us the following information: The team photo was taken after the 1966 Tipperary man's cup semi-final in which Fethard beat Kilsheelan 1-8 to 0-6 in Clonmel on 19th Feb 1967. The final was played in Kilsheelan the following Sunday. Dinny Burke was captain that day. Fethard beat Clonmel Commercials 1-6 to 1-4 in that final to retain the cup.

The action photos are from the final v Commercials and famous referee John Moloney from Bansha can be seen keeping the peace in one of them. Pat Weeshie Barrett was only 17 when he played in that final; he was probably the youngest ever Fethard player to win a senior medal; Cly Mullins who also played in the full forward line V Commercials that day had a full year's championship football played before Pat Barrett was born.

This is the winning Fethard team on the day
