Emigration epidemic evident in Fethard

The current state of our country became a lot more obvious last weekend in Fethard when local pubs were packed with ‘Bon Voyage’ parties as seven more young people said goodbye to their friends and families to leave for a better life in Australia. For these adventurous travellers the trip will be less traumatic as they travel together to find a new life, but not so for their heartbroken families left behind.
While everyone will indeed wish them well I’m sure most parents will often ponder the ‘lottery’ of travelling so far away from home. Maybe there is a chance they will find a suitable partner and end up settling to live so far away? Or who will look after them if they have an accident or get sick? A thousand other ‘ifs and buts’ will raise their head every day.

At least in this day and age communication is readily available and very affordable via Internet and Skype and those away can keep in touch with happenings at home through community websites and FaceBook.

Unfortunately, at home emigration leaves a void that is not easily replaced, our football and other teams are left depleted, our social outings are not the same, our businesses have less customers, our skilled workforce resource is gone and family life will never be the same.

On the positive side, a bit like the ‘prodigal son’, we will all rejoice at their safe return, and unlike the ‘prodigal son’ they will have made their fortune instead of losing it. Bon Voyage to Tina Ryan, Ollie Burke, Matt Grant, Will Hogan, Bill Walsh, Emma Smyth and Sean Carey.

Congratulations to Tipperary Minors (Photograph – Minor Success)

One of the stars of Tipperary's victory has connections in Fethard. Mark McCarthy is son of Joe and Jackie McCarthy. Jackie (nee Murphy) is originally from Rathcoole, Fethard. Mark's grandfather, Johnny Murphy, lives in Kilnockin, Fethard. His grandmother was the late Doreen Murphy.

The Toomevara corner forward scored a goal and two points as Tipperary beat Dublin by 10 points in Sunday's replay and his family were in Croke Park to cheer Mark and Tipperary to victory.

The Minor team got their championship campaign off to a start on Sunday, September 30, against the team they played in last year's County Final. Ardfinnan came into this match in great form, having won both of their opening games. But the Fethard girls make the better start with first-half goals from Aimee Pollard (1-0), Karen Hayes (2-0), and Aine Phelan (2-0), while Ardfinnan scored 2-4. All of Fethard's opening goals were the result of great support play from Kate Davey, Annie Prout, Evie O'Sullivan and Molly O'Meara. In the second half, Fethard extended their lead with a point from Lucy Butler, and further scores from Aimee Pollard (0-2) and Aine Phelan (1-1). However, Ardfinnan kept up the pressure on Fethard's defence. Despite great work from Sadhbh Horan, Ciara Tillyer, Emma Walsh and Niamh Shanahan, Ardfinnan put 3-3 on the scoreboard, to leave the game drawn at 6-4 to 5-7. A fair result, most would agree. Well done girls.

Well done also to the Gaelic4Mothers who lined out for Fethard against a very strong St. Pats team on Saturday, September 29. Although it was a win for the Cloneen/Drangan side, the Fethard ladies really enjoyed the match. Finally, many thanks to everyone who supported the Club in the recent ‘Cash for Clobber’ fundraiser, especially all those who helped out on the day.

Fethard & District Rugby Club

Fethard U15s
On Sunday last Fethard U15s played Waterpark away in the first round of the league. It was far from ideal conditions with a very strong wind blowing down the pitch with heavy rain. Whilst the scoreline was high on Fethard’s side it was not a one-sided affair. Fethard took a lot of pressure from the hosts for long periods of time. It was great defensive play from Michael Gaynor, Josef O'Connor and Connie Coen that kept Fethard in the game. The team played well with a good mix of players a lot of U13s from last year stepped up to the plate like Jack Kealy, Aaron Smullen, Andrew O'Connell, Ned Grogan, Lorcan Ivors and Ross McCormack. While this was a good performance, there is still room for improvement in certain areas of play.

Final score was Fethard 36, Waterpark 0. Looking forward to seeing all at training on Friday, new players always welcome.

Fethard U18 Ladies
Fethard U18 girls played a rugby seven-a-side tournament in Thurles last Saturday. In their first game they played Thurles and then Mallow in the second game.

The team played really well together showing fine tackling from Aisling Kelly, Kora Delaney, Niamh Holohan and O'Shea and resulting in a try and conversion by Aine Phelan. Fine rucking and passing in both games was evident from both Aoife Delaney and Molly O'Dwyer.

New girls are always welcome as well as former players. There are more tournaments coming up and dates for your diary girls are October 13 in Carrick, November 3 in Thurles and November 17 in Shannon. Training continues on Friday evenings at the Community Field from 8pm to 9pm.
