Annual Fethard Sports Achievement final for 2014
The Butlers sports achievements awards has just completed its second successful year and are holding its annual " Overall Winner" award presentation on Friday, January 16.

The principle aim of the Sports award scheme is to acknowledge and reward local sporting achievement be it at participation, administration, or coaching level. The competition in confined to Fethard parish but allows for Fethard people who live and work elsewhere as well as for people from outside who live or work in Fethard. Another ambition of the steering group is that all sports get recognised and we are constantly seeking information and updates from the public in order to achieve this aim. We are currently working at designing a Facebook page to facilitate and simplify incoming information to the steering group.

The format of the awards is simply to pick a monthly winner from all nominations received and the twelve winners then go forward as yearly finalists. This year just to complicate things slightly we have thirteen winners due to the fact that we had joint winners in July. The year past was quiet similar to 2013 in that over 100 nominations were received covering 30 different sports.

The steering group who deserve great praise for their overall contribution consists of people from diverse sporting backgrounds and interests. They are, Mary Godfrey, Sandra Maher, M.J. Croke, Tomas Kane, Ciaran Treacy, Austin Godfrey, Paul Kavanagh, Brian Higgins, Paraic Mc Cormack, Bobbi Houlihan, Des O Meara and Philip Butler.

The 2014 Finalists are as follows.

January – Matty Tynan: Horse Racing. According to the Racing Post Matty has staked a claim to the best training feat of 2014 when his mare "Maontri " won 3 races in 2 weeks at Dundalk racetrack.

February – Bridget O Dwyer: Operation Transformation.

Fethard get first bonus point win
Fethard travelled to Fermoy on Sunday last for an important league game, Fermoy were two places above them in the league so a though task lay ahead. There was a strong wind which Fethard played into in the first half and some great tight play from J.R. McGrath, Osama Frazh and Andy Walsh. Fethard had plenty of possession which was eventually rewarded when Shane Kavanagh landed s fine penalty into the strong breeze. The rest of the first half was keenly contested and Akim Frazh was unlucky not to score just on half time.

So Fethard led 3-0 at the break but when the drop off was not gathered, Fermoy spread it wide to score in the corner. From here in it was all Fethard, a rolling maul brought Fethard into Fermoy’s twenty-two and the Fethard scrum half Conor Kavanagh took it on himself and somehow managed to get the touch down, Richie Carroll added the conversion. Some good carries from Kieran power and Brian Murphy saw the backs getting a good supply of ball and when William Power kicked ahead Chris McGrath was on hand to gather and score, shortly after, the same player took a long pass from Paddy Cuddy to brake the defence and score again, Richie Carroll converted, so the score stood at 22-5 to Fethard with two minutes remaining, a powerful scrum from Fethard saw Shane Kavanagh gather an uncontrolled ball at the back of the Fermoy scrum and break tackles to score under posts, Richie Carroll knocked over the conversion. So Fethard now move up to fourth in the table which is a great achievement in their first season at JR level. Next week we play Scarriff in Fethard on Sunday at 2.30pm, as always any support would be appreciated.

Fethard 18s travelled to Thurles for a league game on Sunday last, these teams had met twice already this season with Fethard narrowly winning both games. Fethard got into opposition 22 and were awarded a penalty which Gary Kavanagh kicked, more pressure from the Fethard forwards saw Bill Phelan, Michael Gaynor and Griffin Ivors carry ball close to the Thurles line and when scrum half Thomas Murphy fed Gary Kavanagh on the blind side he broke the defence for a try which he also converted. The second half was all Fethard with some great tries from Matthew Walsh, Harry Tobin, Enda Keane and Paul Maloney.
