Fethard Patrician Presentation Secondary School will perform the musical ‘Godspell’ in the Abymill Theatre on Friday 2nd, Saturday 3rd and Sunday 4th December at 8.15pm. The show is produced by Ms Marian Gilpin (Deputy Principal) and promises to live up to the high standard set by the school’s previous productions. A special matinee will take place on Friday afternoon to accommodate students attending local Primary Schools.

Santa Bear Appeal

The Annual Santa Bear Appeal in aid of the Central Remedial Clinic will take place from 1st to 11th December and ‘Santa Bears’ will be available for sale in local shops at €2 each. This is a very worthwhile cause and the CRC’s ongoing support and help for affected children and families is invaluable.

To supplement the appeal, the annual ‘Carol Singing’ on the streets of Fethard will take place on Thursday 15th December, commencing at Fethard Town Hall at 7.30pm. All are welcome.

Town aids Tony's battle with cancer (The Nationalist)

Tony Sheehan from Fethard, whose family hope to send to Mexico for cancer treatment with the help of a fundraising appeal organised by the local community.

The people of Fethard are coming together in a last ditch attempt to pay for treatment for a popular local man who is battling a life-threatening illness. Former clay pigeon shooting star Tony Sheehan, son of Johnny and Peg Sheehan of St. Patrick's Place in Fethard, returned home from his latest stint in University Hospital, Cork, this week after being told that doctors could do no more to stop his cancer from spreading.

However, Tony's father Johnny told a meeting last Friday that some hope is being offered by a clinic in Mexico, which specialises in alternative treatments for cancer. The cost is high, up to €30,000, and local people are now rallying around in an attempt to help the Sheehan family pay for this treatment.

A committee, chaired by a neighbour of the Sheehan family, Waltie Moloney, has been put in place and a fundraising drive is now getting under way following another meeting last Wednesday.

There was great shock in Fethard when word spread of Tony's illness. The Sheehans are a well-known sporting family, associated with clay pigeon shooting, judo and GAA in the area, and the fundraising committee hopes that their popularity will make a difference when it comes to gathering the necessary money. Tony himself is a former national and international star at clay-pigeon shooting.

"We'll be going around all the big businesses between Fethard and Clonmel and we've opened an account in the bank for people to deposit money into", explained Waltie Moloney to The Nationalist.

"It's a last resort", he pointed out. "In Ireland, there's nothing more they can do for him. But the reaction in Fethard is just unbelievable, everybody wants to help."

Local public representatives have come on board, including Deputy Seamus Healy and Cllr Michael O'Brien who are among the trustees, and Cllrs John Fahey and Susan Meagher.

Events will also be held in the near future, while 1,000 leaflets are being circulated in the community to highlight Tony's plight, and the appeal. Donations can also be made to any committee member: Chairman Waltie Moloney, Secretary Micheál McCormack, Treasurers/Trustees Deputy Seamus Healy, Cllr Michael O'Brien, Jimmy O'Shea, PRO Peggy Colville, Cllr John Fahey, Cllr Susan Meagher, John Sheehan, Paddy Croke, Michael Sheehan, Alfie Brett, Michael Fitzgerald, Ian O'Connor, Denis Burke, Tom Tobin, Connie O'Sullivan, Neilie Hall, David O'Meara, Willie O'Meara, Carmel Rice, David Morrissey, and Anna Cooke.

The bank account number, at the AIB in Fethard, is 01712033, Sort Code 93 53 95.

Last minute Coen penalty gives Killusty deserved draw
Killusty FC 3, Peake Villa 3

Killusty Soccer team who drew 3-3 with Peake Villa on Sunday. Back L to R: Cathal Hurley, Colm Coen, Aaron Kelly, Aidan Fitzgerald, Ronan Maher, Philip Croke, Brian Coen, Michael Quinlan, Michael Dillon, Chris Coen. Front L to R: Shay Coen holding mascots Ben and Luke Coen, Philip Ryan, Tony Shelly, Jason Nevin, Shane Aylward and Martin Coen. (match report below from The Nationalist)

A penalty on the stroke of full-time gave Killusty a vital Clonmel Credit Union Premier League survival point in this six-goal draw with Peake Villa at the Sportsfield, Killusty last Sunday.

Peake Villa defenders, Liam Mackey and John Walsh, deflect this dangerous ball away from Killusty's oncoming Philip Ryan.

Killusty FC, who are hanging on to top class football by their tips of their fingers, got off to the perfect start when Brian Coen finished an Aidan Fitzgerald centre after just two minutes. Killusty then looked like they might produce that elusive first victory from ten starts when a twenty yard strike from Martin Coen rattled the back of the net after 15 minutes play. But unlike Killusty sides of the past that would have shut up shop they are now prone to let these leads slip and it was no different on this occasion as Peake Villa turned this game on its head before the break. First Cathal Delahunty fired home a left wing cross after 20 minutes and then the Thurles side drew level when Delahunty headed home another centre for his second after 38 minutes. From two goals down Peake Villa then went 3-2 up when Stephen Coppinger scored after 43 minutes.

L to R: Martin Coen (Killusty) and Barry Ryan (Peake Villa).

In a tense second half Killusty put pressure on Peake Villa, but it was looking like the Thurles club might hold on for the three points that would move them clear of the relegation dog-fight but they paid the penalty of defending in depth when Shane Aylward was brought down in the area and Shay Coen with the last kick of the game dispatched the spot-kick to the net to secure a relieved Killusty side another crucial point.

Killusty supporters L to R: Megan Coen, Ella Hackett, Luke Coen and Leah Coen.

Killusty supporters L to R: Louis Coen, Noel Byrne, Christy Aylward and Sean Aylward.

Fethard GAA News
Fethard GAA Club will hold their AGM on Sunday 15th January 2006.  Please make a note of the date in your diary. 

Our Lotto Jackpot of €3,900 was not won. The numbers drawn in McCarthys Hotel were 4, 13, 14 and 20. We had one ‘match three’ winner who received €150: John Spillane (Killerk). The €50 Lucky Dip winner was: Derek Cuddihy (Woodvale Walk).

History Lecture
Proinsias Ó Drisceoil, a native of Thurles, will give a Lecture on the Diaries of Amhlaoibh Ó Shuilliobháin (Humphrey O'Sullivan) in the Abymill on Tuesday next, 6th December, beginning at 8.30pm. The Diaries were written between 1827 and 1835 when Humphrey was a shopkeeper in Callan Co. Kilkenny, and was also an organizer for ‘The Liberator’ Daniel O'Connell, in the struggle for Catholic Emancipation.

Proinsias has made a detailed study of the diaries and his lecture will give us a good picture of the lives of the Irish middle class of the mid 19th century, which can be regarded as the beginning of the modern Ireland as we now know it.

Proinsias Ó Drisceoil is joint editor, with his wife Mary Ó Drisceoil, of the 2005 Tipperary Historical Journal, which was recently published to great acclaim.

As usual, all and sundry are welcome to attend, the entrance fee is €4 and refreshments will be served following the lecture.

Christmas Bazaar a great success

On Thursday 24th November Fethard and District Day Care Centre held their very popular Christmas Bazaar.  There was a great build up to this event, which began after we came back from our summer break.  The clients and volunteers made beautiful rugs, dolls, dusters, flower arrangements and many other items for sale on the day. We also received very generous donations from the businesses and people in Fethard for our ‘Monster Raffle’, which this year raised €1,010.

A great crowd attended, from near and far, and the total amount raised on the day was €2,500.  This year it was decided that monies raised would go to the Pakistan Relief Fund, so ‘well done’ and a very huge ‘thank you’ to all the clients, volunteers, committee members, staff and everyone who helped to make the day such a success. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all.

With the White Heathers
Sunday last at Rocklow was somewhat good in parts (like the curate's egg). Foxes were quite plentiful with a few short runs being the feature of the day’s hunting. Scent was quite patchy and foxes, nowadays, seem to get to ground very quickly, which does not help matters.

The White Heathers meet next Sunday at Orchardstown at 11am.

Golden Wedding Anniversary
Congratulations to Michael and Rita Kearney, Friarsgrange, who recently celebrated their ‘Golden Wedding’ anniversary.

Hunting news
The Tipperary Foxhounds had a large field of 65 mounted followers from their meet at Moyglass on Saturday 26th November. A fox from the sandpit at Clonbrogan proved a bit of a dodger and could not be persuaded to leave.

Finding down towards Farranaleen, hounds were just settling down when they ran into live electric fencing and Pat decided not to pursue.

Crossing the road, hounds were kept busy throughout the afternoon with followers engaging a few nice circles from Knockinglass and from the old railway line on the Bufanna side.

Kavanaghs of Fethard
I am researching my ggg grandmother, Catherine Kavanagh. She was baptized in 1811 in the parish of Drangan Cloneen. Parents were Thomas Kavanagh and Mary Ryan. Witnesses were William Maher, and Catherine Kavanagh. I am looking in the Fethard area because I have an elusive distant family member who has posted on the Fethard Website Forum for Catherine Grimes Delehunty (my GGG Grandmother). We don't have all the details, but know that she married Michael Grimes and had at least two sons (Edward born 1832 my GG Grandfather, and William born probably 1834). At some point (either before or after) marrying Michael, she was married to a man named Delehunty, and had other children.  We know she was born Catherine Kavanagh. Edward and William went to the USA in about 1850. The Delehunty boys (2) went to Australia. Michael either died or left or was transported on a convict ship in about 1836. We don't know if Catherine ever left Ireland. If you have any information on her or any of these family members, I would really appreciate it. I am finding this search very difficult. Thank you, Pamela Forrest (email:
