Santa made his way to his grotto at Fethard Convent Community Hall, to give children the opportunity to tell him their wishes’ for Christmas and meet some of his favourite friends, including Minnie and Mikey Mouse, who accompanied him on his sleigh during his visit to Fethard. While people waited for their turn to meet Santa they were entertained by the fantastic ‘Giggles’ group in the hall along with music and refreshments.

Tom Butler was keeping up the family tradition.
Our president Breda Christie founded the games in Tipperary, along with Brother Joyce, back in 1969. She then brought Tom Butler from Coolanure, Fethard, into the fold. Tom did wonderful work at area, county, munster and national level over the years. Tom is still the country patron even though unable to attend events he knows everything that goes on. He still enjoys a close friendship with Breda Christie.

Over the years his children and grandchildren all participated in the games. Tom Junior is the most recent to join the ranks. He already has an athletics medal under his belt and his grandparents, Tom and Mary, and Parents Richie and Helen are very proud of him.

Athletes from Fethard were among those who competed at the first national finals in Santry Stadium, Dublin in 1970. Richard Fallon, Main Street, was a member of U12 boys relay team that won gold medals. Silver medal won by Conor Lonergan, The Square U14 long jump and Pierce Dillon, Main Street, competed in U10 Athletics.
