The fundraising Buster Race Night for the Community Playground was a wonderful success. There was a great turnout on the night and proceedings were blessed with wonderful weather which really added to the atmosphere. A large number of children attended and going by their interest and enjoyment of betting on the races I think the attendance at Clonmel Track may expand in future years. We had three characters present - our Bananas Aisling and Natasha and Richard the Donkey - which added to the fun element and also our Face Painting staff were in good demand.

The Buster Draw of €1,500 was won by John Hanly, c/o Coolmore Stud, congratulations John. This fundraising initiative raised just about €19,000 and with costs of €2,500 the net income is €16,000 which more than meets our current financial needs. Well Done to all concerned and a big 'Thank You' to all those who made it the success it was. So many people helped in so many ways, that there are too many to mention individually. The project is proving to be a wonderful example of a community working together for a very worthwhile cause.

Corpus Christi Procession this Sunday
The annual Corpus Christi Procession takes place on this coming Sunday evening, June 1, at 7pm, commencing from outside Fethard Parish Church and proceeding to the Augustinian Abbey. All are invited to come along.

The custom of carrying the Blessed Sacrament in procession through the town on Corpus Christi Day developed in the early fourteenth century. During the later Middle Ages these processions developed into splendid pageants of devotion and honour to the Blessed Sacrament.

Well done to our Junior Ladies team on winning the county league title on Saturday against Mullinavat in Monroe. As usual the ladies put in tremendous effort in an exciting game to take home the club’s first piece of silverware of the year.

All roads lead to Semple Stadium for our U11½ girls after they overcame Rosegreen/Cashel in the South final of the community games. The girls put in a great performance, with some brilliant scores taken to run out comfortable winners. Now it’s the county final on June bank holiday Monday in Thurles. Well done girls.

Our U14 girls were narrowly defeated by Templemore in the championship on Sunday. In what was an enthralling match either side could have claimed victory but the spoils went to Templemore this time winning by 2 points.

Training continues this Tuesday in the school field at 7.30pm as the girls gear up for a semi-final clash with Aherlow next week.

An Evening of Celebration on Friday
There’s lots happening in the Convent Community Hall, Fethard next Friday, May 31, and everyone is invited. The evening begins at 7pm with the launch of the new Medieval Town Trail Brochure, followed by the unveiling of the Transition Year students’ 3D model and culminating in the ‘Bring them Home’ Festival Draw at 8pm.

Launch of the new Medieval Town Trail brochure

Launch of the new Medieval Town Trail brochure
The Fethard Historical Society is delighted to launch the new Medieval Town Trail Brochure that shows Fethard as it appeared circa 1650. The illustrator of the new map is Dan Tietzsch-Tyler, an expert in archaeological and historical reconstruction drawings. Dan literally spent hours in Fethard exploring and photographing the extensive medieval fabric of the town including, of course, the Town Wall. The results of Dan’s painstaking research are plain to be seen in the wonderfully detailed features of his drawing. Dan will be present at the launch to explain the process he used to recreate the Fethard of over three centuries ago. The Historical Society would like to acknowledge funding support from the South Tipperary Development Company. The Department of Environment, Community and Local Government and the E.U.

The unveiling of the Transition Year students’ 3D Model
Transition Year Students from the Patrician Presentation Secondary School invite the local community to view their 3D model of the Medieval town of Fethard which they have been working on for the last year under the guidance of their Art teacher, Ms Patricia Looby. The students would also like to acknowledge the assistance volunteered by Mr Michael Costello, a former past pupil of the school, now a qualified architect’s technician. This scaled model is based on the Dan Tietzsch-Tyler illustration of 17th century Fethard and is an impressive addition to our local historical archive. It’s wonderful to see the next generation taking such an interest in their local heritage so please come along and show your appreciation of these very talented young people.

Fethard Gathering 2013 Festival Draw
The third event of the night is the much-anticipated ‘Bring Them Home’ Festival Draw at 8pm. This is a fundraising initiative undertaken by the Fethard Business and Tourism Group to help fund the restoration of the Town Hall. Local voluntary clubs and organisations will also benefit from the draw. The FB&TG are dedicated to promoting business in the town as well as raising Fethard’s profile as a tourist destination. The Town Hall project is a vital first step in that direction. The draw will see three lucky winners receive travel vouchers to the value of €3,000, €1,500 and €1,000 respectively. Remember, if you’re not in, you can’t win! The evening will conclude with refreshments.

The recent ‘Stars in Your Eyes’ event for suicide awareness was a great success in Lonergan’s Bar where some of the ‘top stars’ in the world performed on Friday, May 25. On the night we had a Neil Diamond, Dean Martin, Justin Bieber, Delores O’Riordan, Christina Perri, Luke Kelly and a surprize visit by the Blues Brothers to entertain all present and contribute to a great nights entertainment.
It was all good fun with even proprietor, John Carroll, dressing as Amy Winehouse to compère this charity event which raised the tidy sum of around €800 which will go towards suicide awareness.

Although billed as a ‘fun night for charity’, some of the performances were of a really professional standard. Joe Thompson kicked of the show with his own inimitable version of Justin Bieber. Joe could really be a future star, he puts everything into his performance and has wonderful tone in his voice. Next up Helen O’Brien gave a breath-taking performance of Christina Perri singing ‘Who do you think you are?’ This was followed by Fethard’s own Neill Diamond, Adrian Bradshaw, who had the large attendance rocking with ‘Forever in Blue Jeans’.

After a short break we had Steve Baker dressed for the occasion and giving a great impression of Dean Martin singing ‘Little old Wine Drinker Me’. Steve was followed by Charlene Serdobbel who sang a mesmerising version of Delores O’Riordan and the Cranberries song ‘Zombie’. We then had the Blues Brothers hoping and leaping about to ‘Everybody Loves Somebody’, performed by Martin Shelly helped by Steve Baker. Last but not least we had Frank Culleton as Luke Kelly and what a voice from the young Rosegreen man.

Plea from Peggy
The first two in each race U8 to U16 have qualified for the County Finals in Templemore on Sunday, June 23. Unfortunately this is the same day as ‘The Gathering Festival’ in Fethard where many children will be involved in other activities. Those going to Templemore have to be entered by Tuesday, June 4.

Anybody who wishes to be entered in the County Finals are asked to please contact Peggy at 086 8110768 or email: peggycolville@gmail.com before next weekend as we will only enter those who are free to attend. Please note that competitors may not compete in both an athletics event and the long puck so we need your thoughts on that also.

Both now training hard with Robert Hackett for the international tournament in Wexford in July. Big thanks to their coaches, Noreen Hackett and Eoin Tynan.

Relaxation Classes
Relaxation class starting in Fethard Convent Community Hall this Thursday night at 7pm with Dee Brady, relax and unwind in a stress free environment for one hour. €5 per week

Parent Minder Toddler group
Fethard Parent / Minder Toddler group has been in contact with the neighbouring Clonmel branch and as a result have decided to make some changes to help increase our local numbers and make the experience more enjoyable for children and adults. The first change is that the group will now meet for two hours on Thursday mornings, from 10am to 12 noon, and the cost will remain at €2 for the first child and €1 for second child. The group will be more structured and will also include song and nursery rhyme time.

The group was set up at Fethard Convent Community Hall so that children could get to know each other and play together in a clean safe environment and enable parents to get out of their house and enjoy a tea/coffee with other parents. This is a great facility to have available to us in our town with lots of toys for the children to play with and a changing unit in the bathroom. If you have a small child at home why not come down to the hall on Thursday mornings. For this group to be a success we need your continued support.

On May 19 all road led to Fethard for the Ladies 5k and Mens 10k County Championships. There were record entries with a total of 97 athletes taking to the roads to run The Red City loop. After a last minute course rejig to show respect to a funeral in town the Fethard ladies got under way with a seven strong entry and they must all be commended for putting on such a good showing as all seven are only in their first season.

Aine Doocey showed well again coming home 15th with the every improving Mary Ryan 29th, Nicola Guiry again showed she is not afraid to go up against the counties best in 31st. The trio of P. Kennedy, Elaine Daly and G. Ryan, running in their very first event, combined with Aine, Mary and Nicola to come 5th in the Team A section and 4th in the B section.

The mens’ race was up next, and what a sight it was to see a big group of the counties best athletes head away from Barrack Street, down through Main Street and turning right out Red City in front of what some said was the biggest crowd at a championship race for many a year.

Fintan Rice ran a steady early pace while keeping the leaders in sight at all time and made up several positions as the race turned at Barrettstown towards Colman. A strong second half saw Fintan move up to sixth and when the leader pulled out with 200 metres to go, he finished strong on home soil in 5th place. Fran Tyrrell and ‘Magic’ Ryan both set personal bests over the distance coming home 52nd and 59th.

On May 24, Poulmucka was the place to be for the 8k and 5k Road Races. A massive entry of twenty-four travelled from Fethard for this one, a sure sign of the level of interest in the sport and the good work that has been done over the last few months.

In the 5k P.J. Gazely and David Burke where 3rd and 5th with ‘Magic’ Ryan coming in 34th. Denise O'Brien was our first Lady home in 16th and Mary Ryan, Denise O'Brien, Imelda Vaughan, Nicola Guiry all picking up predict time prizes. Again we had several Ladies competing in an event for the first time so congrats to Helen Gazley, Una Shanahan, Anne Kennedy, Gwen Cooke, We also had Elaine Daly, Biddy O'Dwyer, Grainne Ryan and Miceál McCormack represent us over the distance. In the 8k, Michael Moclair was our first man home in 24th place and Edmond Kinane in 50th. Aine Doocey was 2nd in the Over 35 section and Kate O'Mahoney and Maeve Moclair ran well without reward on the night.
