Fethard beat Waterford City to win East Munster U14 Cup
Fethard's Under 14 rugby team, captained by Ross McCormack, won the East Munster Cup Final on Sunday, April 28. Well done to this young team who showed great determination against a bigger Waterford City side. Thanks also to the coaches - John Smullen, Shane Ivors, Paul Kavanagh and Hugh O'Connor.
Fethard's Under 14 rugby team, captained by Ross McCormack, won the East Munster Cup Final on Sunday, April 28. Well done to this young team who showed great determination against a bigger Waterford City side. Thanks also to the coaches - John Smullen, Shane Ivors, Paul Kavanagh and Hugh O'Connor.

On Sunday morning last our young men took to the field in Cashel in the East Munster U14 Cup Final, against a much bigger Waterford City side. The morning certainly wasn't ideal for rugby with a gale blowing into the face of the Fethard side for the first half. Waterford City pilled on the pressure early in the half Fethard tackled exceptionally well. Waterford City only managed to penetrate the Fethard line once and scored in the corner but failed to convert. At half time it was Waterford City 5, Fethard 0.

In the second half Fethard started well using the wind to their advantage and keeping the City team in their own 22. With play breaking down at the half way line Ross McCormack took the ball in hand and charged for the line shrugging off several tackles on the way. This score really got Fethard into gear with every player upping their performance.

Mark Heffernan attacked City's line only to be stopped just short, great support play from the forwards saw Jack O'Rourke crashing over for another try which was converted. City got a break out of defence scoring a try in the corner but this score didn't dampen the fight in the Fethard team who used the wind to their advantage pinning the City team deep in their 22.

The tackling from Fethard was relentless from all around the field. Darragh Lynch put in great tackles at full back and in the centre Mark Heffernan and Jack Kealy tackled everything that moved. City's indiscipline cost them another three points that Josef O'Connor slotted over. This was a hard fought victory and truly deserved, well done to the whole panel of players involved.

Spillane an Fánaí – Fethard
The following is from singer John Spillane's website after his week spent in Fethard . . . VISIT HIS WEBSITE HERE

John Spillane singing his new 'Fethard Song' with local musicans in McCarthys
John Spillane singing his new 'Fethard Song' in McCarthys where he was joind by local and visiting musicans.

Continuing with the filming of our new TV Series for TG4 – SPILLANE AN FÁNAÍ – (Spillane the Wanderer), and flushed with success after our time in GRAIGUENAMANAGH, and with the song I wrote for that town, our little travelling circus rolled into town number two; FETHARD, COUNTY TIPPERARY!

I was wondering if I would be able to write another song as good or anywhere near as good as the one for Graiguenamanagh like, but I had the advantage that I had been there before, when I had played a gig in the Marquee out the back of McCarthy’s about three summers ago, and I had got the tour of the town from JASPER, the man of the house in McCarthy’s famous BAR/ RESTAURANT/ UNDERTAKER!
My main memories of the tour were the flock of geese which roamed freely about the town, the town geese like, the magnificent walls of the town, and the Sheela na Gig, that grotesque image plastered to the town wall!

Well anyway we rolled into town and set up our headquarters in McCarthy’s, where we were visited the first night by local musicians THE PHEASANT PLUCKERS! I’m not a pheasant plucker, I’m a pheasant plucker’s son, and I’m only plucking pheasants till the pheasant pluckers come! Well we had a mighty good ol’ session of music and I was trying out my new FETHARD song, which was starting to take shape; -

FETHARD

As I went down through Fethard town in the County Tipperary,
I met a goose on the loose, and she muttering and stuttering,
The dander of the gander and he going to reprimand her,
What’s the use of a truce with the goose on the loose,
Make peace with the geese, and they feathered in Fethard,

In Fethard town, in Fethard town,
the sun goes up and the sun goes down,
The auld Clashawley flows around,
I wish i was in Fethard town,

As I went down through Fethard town in the County Tipperary,
I met the Sheela na Gig and she dancing a jig,
And she clingin’ to the wall, and she laughin’ at them all,
Saying “They’ll never understand me”,
And the mystery of history, the hassle in the castle,
And the monk in the bunk, and the skill with the quill,
And it feathered in Fethard,

In Fethard town, in Fethard town,
the sun goes up and the sun goes down,
The auld Clashawley flows around,
I wish I was in Fethard town,

As I went down through Fethard town in the County Tipperary,
I met a mouse with a horse, and he training him of course,
For the big gold cup, giddy up, giddy up,
And the thoroughbred blood, and the Coolmore stud,
And the party in McCarthy’s and the fiddle
and the griddle and the riddle;-
“What made the HEARSE HORSE HOARSE?
The COFFIN of course!”
And the under taker take her under undertaker,
And the Sheela na Gig and she dancing a jig,
and the monk in the bunk,
And the goose on the loose, and they feathered in Fethard,

In Fethard town, in Fethard town,
the sun goes up and the sun goes down,
The auld Clashawley flows around,
I wish I was in Fethard town.

With the Fí ard, Bí ard, Crann ard, Coill Ard, Sliabh ard, Riamh ard, Nuair a chacann gé, cacann siad go léir,
Ar thaobh na gréine de Shliabh na mBan!

Well anyway lads it’s a completely different type of a song like from the last one, it’s a rollicking, jovial, tongue twister of a number like, fair play to me!

Tony was interviewed along with Joe Kenny on the Kenrick Collection of glass plates taken in Fethard by Patrick Kenrick c.1895. Patrick Kenrick who died in 1950, was Tony's uncle and Joe's grand-uncle.

Well we met a whole host of colourful charachters in Fethard, including Frankie Napier, the little boy who ran away with the circus long ago, and who trained Bengal tigers under the Big Top. Johnny Sheehan, the woodturner, who carved me a beautiful pen out of ancient yew before my very eyes, and who told us very movingly of his great love for the Irish language.

We explored a fascinating link with the great ballad “Lord Franklin”, which I was delighted to have to learn for the show – you’ll have to watch it, like, to get the full story!

We visited the home place of Ned Kelly’s dad in MOYGLASS where I ended up in a home made suit of armour; we met up with Tony Newport and Joe Kenny who showed us a fascinating collection of photographs of Fethard from a hundred years ago; we met up with Terry Cunningham the local historian and Doirín Saurus who gave us the run down on the Sheela na Gig and showed us her wonderful pottery.

We visited Margaret and Dick Prendegast who took me to the Fethard Ballroom, where I was dragged out for the Siege of Ennis and the Paul Jones!

Among other adventures there, as well as pulling pints behind the bar, I found myself roped into driving the hearse.

Happy days in Fethard like lads and I was horsing out my new song everywhere I went and in fairness you would have to say it did go down very well like, very happy with the reaction like, in fairness I would have to say that , yes, I have struck another ball INTO THE BACK OF THE NET LIKE!

Thanks a million to Vincent and Annette in McCarthy’s, Teresa and Willie in the Cozie B and B and all the people of the town who opened their doors and their hearts to us all. Thanks again to Tony McCarthy and all the ForeFront Crew!

Jack’s best fight of his life
Saturday, April 27, Jack Connolly put in one of the best fights of his life when he defeated Peter Keenan at the Lakeroom Bar, in Mahon, Cork City. The event was the 10th anniversary tournament hosted by Loughmahon Boxing Club.

Keenan at 21 years old, a local hero, and the first boxer ever to represent Loughmahon at the Elite Senior Championships at the National Stadium last month, had no answers and could not contend with the 16 year old from Fethard, in what was a master display from Jack to win by a majority decision in Keenan’s own back yard.
Keenan known for his strength and power, was out foxed by Jack for the entire fight, with a brilliant performance of power, speed, left jab and use of the ring, to take the honours in front of the Loughmahon supporters in their own local club. Coach Bobby Galvin made it three wins from three when Jack’s club-mates Kenny Dillon and Liam McKenna also recorded impressive victories for the Clonmel Boxing Club. Fantastic stuff and well done to all concerned.

Fethard GAA Club news
Their was a good reaction to the photo of the 1988 county winning team in last week’s notes and it is hopeful that they might get together for their 25th reunion during the Gathering festivities later in the year.
On a lighter note it was great to be in the Fethard GAA grounds on Saturday evening last to witness Ballingarry and Killenaule in the South Senior Hurling Championship. The buzz and excitement had to be seen to be believed as these two stalwarts of the ancient game gave a splendid display to the large gathering present. Killenaule took the spoils on this occasion over a younger Ballingarry side. It won’t be long till the boys in the ‘Purple and White’ will be the team to contend with. The club must be complimented on the field presentation for the game.

The sun shone for the occasion and a good day was enjoyed by all.

Irish and French Orals
Sixth Year pupils completed their Irish and French orals over the last two weeks. They were well prepared for the exams and Mock Oral Exams were conducted in the school in the previous weeks.

Leaving Certificate Vocational Programme
The LCVP pupils have completed their portfolios and will sit their final LCVP exam on Wednesday, May 1. The school has had excellent results in LCVP over the years. LCVP is a Senior Cycle Programme of the Department of Education and Skills, designed to give a strong vocational dimension to the Leaving Certificate. The programme combines the virtues of academic study with a new and dynamic focus on self-directed learning, enterprise, work and the community. Young people taking the LCVP have a unique opportunity to develop their interpersonal, vocational and technological skills. These skills are equally relevant to the needs of those preparing for further education, seeking employment or planning to start their own business.
It’s a very useful subject for pupils with all aspects of the exam being completed in May before the main exams in June. Pupils are awarded distinction, merit and pass grades. These grades are recognised for point purposes by the Universities and the Institutes of Technology. The points are allocated as follows: Distinction 70 points, Merit 50 points and Pass 30 points

Science Trip to Fota Island
On Thursday last, April 25, the Third Year Science Pupils and 5th and 6th Year biology pupils took part in the educational programme in Fota Island.
