On Friday, November 8, our cadette boys travelled to Colaiste Cathail Naofa in Dungarvan for their seeding round to face Davis College (Mallow), Colaiste Mhuire (Thurles) and two schools from the host school. This round determines those schools who progress to compete to the Division A (Cup) competition and those who play in the Division B (Shield) competition at national level.

Ably managed by Eoghan Hurley and assisted by Mr McGree, our boys took two straight sets in the first round against Colaiste Cathail Naofa (A) in the first round, winning 25-15 and 25-13, setting the Fethard boys up well for the day and for potential qualification. In the second match, against the weaker Dungarvan team, Eoghan played the majority of his reserve panel, who took the first set comfortably. The second of the two sets, however, saw Dungarvan (B) rally to take the set 28-26 after many set points on both sides.

Returning to their first choice players with one or two exceptions, Fethard resumed well to see off Colaiste Mhuire (Thurles) in the next match in two straight sets but were eventually outplayed by a very strong Davis College team in the last of their matches.

As the top three teams progress to the cup competition, Fethard comfortably earned second place in the group whilst ensuring that all who travelled on the day were given at least one game. Well done to all who were involved and best of luck in the Division A quarter finals, to take place over the coming weeks. The panel for the day were: Thomas Channon (captain), Shane Buckley, Liam Quigley, Thomas O’Reilly, Danny O’Regan, Nathan Costin, Nathan Thompson, Dominik O’Dwyer, Keith Cronin, Jamie Cahill, Dean Dorney, Dylan Fenlon and Eric Fogarty.

Fethard Players production of ‘Miss Rose White’ opens in the Abymill Theatre on this Wednesday night, November 20, and will continue its run to Sunday, November 24. Early booking advisable at O’Flynn’s Menswear, Burke Street, Tel: (052) 6131254 or 087 1604260.

‘Miss Rose White’ is set in 1940s New York and a tale of the relationship between two sisters. Rose White is a Jewish woman who changes her name to appear far removed from her Polish heritage. She longs to climb the ladder of success in the large department store where she works. Years ago, her mother and sister had to remain in Poland and were subsequently sent to concentration camps. Good news arrives. The sister is alive and, at last, coming to America. When she enters the country, she is much changed. Rose is forced to share her apartment with a virtual stranger. In time, they slowly warm to each other in this well-written, moving production produced by Austin O’Flynn. The cast includes Niamh Ryan, Jimmy O’Sullivan, Ann Walsh, Colm McGrath, Geraldine McCarthy and Maeve Moclair.

Fethard Juvenile GAA Club held their AGM on Friday night last in the Tirry Centre at 8pm. It was well attended with approximately 20 people present. Andy O’Donovan (outgoing Chairman) gave a very positive annual report and all agreed that the club is heading in a positive direction and if we all work as a team and get involved we will have a great Juvenile Club for years to come. The highlight of the year was our U14 Hurling team who won the South and County title.
Cúl Camp this year was a great success, with numerous parents complimenting the club on its organisation and running. A huge thanks was extended to all involved.

School training has been re-organised now with a dedicated coach attending every week, but we still need parents to get involved to assist. Thanks was given to those assisting with the GAA School liaison. Coaches were also confirmed for U6, U8, U10, U12 and U14 age groups. We were delighted to put forward Jamie McCormack to the South Board na nOg as one of the South Division Under 15 Football coaches.

We are looking to confirm coaches for our U16 teams
We really need parents to come on board with assisting U6 coaching on Saturday mornings. So if you can spare the time, or if you stay to watch and don't mind helping, please let the coach know at training.
We also appear to be losing a number of young players to other clubs due to their choice of school, or where they play other sports. We ask that parents of players or potential players sign with their local parish club and encourage their children to play with their parish teams.

The club is very grateful to Coolmore for their continued support of our club and our sister clubs. This contribution has enabled us to continue to provide our juvenile players with equipment for training and games.

New Management team for 2014
Going into 2014, there are a few changes to the Management Committee: Michael Moroney (Chairman), Mick O’Mahony (Vice-Chairman) unchanged, we welcome on board Wendy Donegan (Juvenile Secretary), Mary Godfrey (Assistant Juvenile Secretary), who will be on hand to guide Wendy through her initial tasks at hand, John Neville (Treasurer) and Sean Kiely (Assistant Treasurer), Andy O’Donovan (PRO), a role hasn’t been filled for a number of years with Patricia Fitzgerald being our last PRO. Andy will be assisted by Ann Fleming.

Our delegates to Coiste na nOg, Tiobraid Arann Theas, are unchanged, with Austie and Mary Godfrey. Whenever possible Michael Moroney will attend South Board na nOg meetings. The Juvenile Players Representative is yet to be confirmed.

Fethard attends European Walled Town event

Donegal, are L to R:Liam Mannix, Co-ordinator Irish Walled Towns Network; Colm Murray, Architecture Officer, Heritage Council; Joseph Gallagher, Heritage Officer, County Donegal; and Terry Cunningham, Fethard Historical Society.

Delegates from Fethard Historical Society attended the recent European Walled Towns annual conference which took place in the walled city of Derry at the end of October. The three-day event was part of Derry’s programme of events for ‘Derry, UK City of Culture 2013’.

Towns and cities from all over Europe were present, including The Netherlands, Austria, Malta, Italy, Portugal, Greece, Croatia, Latvia as well as Ireland, England and Wales. The Fethard delegation were especially interested in meeting the Welsh townspeople as their walls were being constructed contemporaneously with the Walls of Fethard. This ‘town building’ era was all part of the Anglo-Norman expansion westward into the lands of the Welsh and Irish kingdoms in the 12th and 13th centuries.

The Irish Walled Towns Network (IWTN), of which Fethard is a member, received the 2013 EU Europa Nostra award for Cultural Heritage at a ceremony in Derry’s magnificent Guildhall. Michael Starrett, Chief Executive of the Heritage Council, who accepted the award, mentioned Fethard in his acceptance speech. Fethard has received close on one million euro in funding between the Heritage Council, County Council and Fáilte Ireland over the past seven years and this all stemmed from the fact that Fethard has been a very active member of the Irish Walled Towns Network over this time. The annual membership fee of the IWTN is paid by our County Council and Fethard Historical Society ensures that a representative from Fethard attends the various events, seminars and training days that take place throughout the year.

Lifford Old Courthouse and Fethard ‘s Tholsel
A visit into County Donegal formed part of the conference programme and an interesting visit was made to Lifford Old Courthouse which has been turned into an active tourist reception centre, very similar to the ideas being discussed at present for Fethard’s old Town Hall. Information from Lifford, Lismore, the Hook Lighthouse (centres which have already been visited) and other similar tourist visitor centres will, hopefully, be used to fashion a sustainable ‘Visitor’s Centre’ for the medieval walled town of Fethard in the coming year.

St. Rita's Camogie Club AGM
St. Rita's Camogie Club will hold their AGM on Friday, November 22, at 8pm sharp in the Tirry Community Centre, Barrack Street, Fethard. The club urge parents, mentors and senior players to attend.

Girls Rugby progressing well
Fethard Girls Rugby enjoyed numerous wonderful games recently in Thurles, Mallow and Cashel. The squads are progressing well with a front row of Molly O'Dwyer, Aisling Kelly and Aoife Delaney working well together tackling well throughout and rucking over with great strength. Second row of new comers Lisa Norton and Amy Kirby have proved a great asset to the team with their rucking support and ball recycling. Kora Delaney at Scrum half kept the pressure on with fine tackling throughout and quick ball constantly from Rucks. Fly half Aine Phelan showed clean heels and fine runs on a number of occasions to score for the team. Aobh O'Shea with Amy Thompson and Leah Fox are great centres who put in the tackles and recycle the ball providing great support to the team. Katie Ryan has a great catch and backs this up well with her ball carrying and recycling. Niamh Houlihan with Leah Scott are great backs with fine ball carrying and showing support in the rucks when it counts.

Thank to Thurles for allowing us to join them for the 15-a-side game in the Munster leagues. Training on Friday evening at Fethard Community Field at 8pm to 9.15pm. New members from the age of 13 years and up are always welcome and supported. Any inquiries to Polly on 086 3394959.

Fethard & District Rugby Club minis report
Fethard U7s travelled to Clonmel last Sunday and they played two fine games against the hosts and Galbally. Speedy Charlie Walsh scored a hat trick of tries with fine play by quick tagging from both Sean Fitzgerald and Shane Ryan. Sam Coen is a great recruit to the team with fine ball carrying and quick hands to set-up plenty of tries. Gavin Neville continues to shine with smart thinking in his support to his team mates and working well with Noah O'Flynn whose fearless play makes for exciting viewing. Joseph Fitzgerald is following in his sibling’s footsteps as a great player for ball recycling. Adam Ruttle had a great game and supported his teammates well. Lee Delaney with Harry Barton and Cormac O'Donnell were very good at receiving and tipping off. Keep up the great work everyone.

Fethard U8s and U9s played excellent matches on Sunday supporting each other and putting plenty of scores on the board.

The U10s, on a lovely sunny morning for rugby in Clonmel, played two strong sides and after an hour of hard fought rugby, a defeated but gallant Fethard contributed to some lovely play. Great tries by Johnny Gleeson, Charlie Cummins and Michael Ryan with strong support play by Jack Cleere, James McCormack, Conor Neville, Luke Dolan, Stuart Luke and Michael Long. Looking forward to a speedy return to fitness of Ben Ruttle and Daniel Boland.

Fethard U12s arrived to take on their host and the visiting Galbally team. Clonmel came on first looking big and ready. Fethard have had a run of near misses recently when the hard work wasn't producing the results; today it all came together. Ethan Coen, back from injury, made several strong runs, Ryan Walsh and Eabha Fitzgerald rucked the ball beautifully and Mark McCormack sent the ball spinning out to the backs where Iain Harrington made precise kicks. Eoin Walsh, Declan Hayes and Mathew Gleeson all ran and passed and moved the ball with flair and skill. It was a fine victory for Fethard.

We played Galbally next and a great match it was. Long passages of open play from both sides were enjoyed with the ball moving through the hands, across the pitch, back and forth. Sam Quigley-O'Dwyer had his best game yet, driving and hooking superbly. Tom Hayden showed his turbo boost speed and Lucy Murphy fought toe to toe for the ball. Angus MacDonald and Cathal Ryan played exceptionally well in this game, unfortunately they were playing for Galbally who were a couple of players short! However, this seemed to prompt the Fethard team into making tackles and playing the game through the stages, much to the delight of all those watching this was a very enjoyable game to watch and a last minute score tipped it Fethard's way.

Digital recollections now online

Interview with Johnny Sheehan, St. Patrick's Place, Fethard, one of the interviews by Holy Trinity National School pupils as part of the Muintir na Tire’s recent ‘Digital Recollections’ project. The others can be now viewed at www.digitalrecollections2013.com just click on Holy Trinity National School to see the local recordings.

Holy Trinity National School were one of small number of Tipperary schools chosen to participate in Muintir na Tire’s recent ‘Digital Recollections’ project where local people were interviewed by the pupils in a similar fashion as the original 1937 National Schools Folklore Study. This project assumed a more modern feel and instead of a pencil, students would be allocated digital recording devices to conduct the interview process, and on completion of this process, the narratives would be uploaded on to a website.

The objectives of this project were twofold. Firstly, both the young and old participating in the project will learn how to use digital recording devices and also the social aspect of the interview process, secondly it educated national school children about the cultures and traditions which reside in their communities, thereby preserving them for future generations.

The study encompassed national schools in South Tipperary, given budget constraints the number of schools was confined to 12. The funding for the Digital Recollections Project was awarded by South Tipperary Development Company through the Rural Development Programme. Hundreds of hours of recordings were submitted by the 12 national schools and this website showcases the wonderful work by these national school children and their teachers and hopefully will preserve the culture and traditions of their native communities. The website can be now viewed at www.digitalrecollections2013.com and click on Holy Trinity National School to see the local recordings.
