Fethard’s ‘Blue’ and ‘White’ teams who both had tremendous performances in the inaugural Bernadette Stocksborough Under 17 Tournament, winning both the Shield and Cup finals.


On July 23, Fethard Ladies Football Club hosted the inaugural Bernadette Stocksborough Under 17 Tournament. Bernadette had been secretary of the Fethard Ladies Football Club and despite a long battle with cancer continued in her position to the end so it seemed a fitting tribute to her involvement and dedication to the club.
From the early stages of planning it was clear that every club member, committee member and supporter were behind the idea and it was no surprise that there were so many girls interested in playing that Fethard had to enter two teams in the blitz. Fethard’s ‘White’ and ‘Blue’ teams were accompanied in competition by Abbeyside, Fermoy, Moyle Rovers, Moycarkey, St.Pat’s/Commercials combination team and Templemore. From early morning it was clear that there was a certain buzz at the Barrack and School Fields as the sun came out and enough buns and sandwiches arrived to feed an army.

The blitz kicked off with the first game between Fethard White and St. Pat’s/Commercials combination team. It was fitting that the first goal of the tournament was scored in this game by Laura Stocksborough. Fethard had a good win and followed this with successive wins over Abbeyside and Moycarkey to top the group. St Pat’s/Commercials, Abbeyside and Moycarkey all finished level on points after their games which resulted in a 21 metre shoot out – St.Pat’s/Commericals won this and claimed second place in the Group to contest the Cup Semi-Final.

In Group B, a thrilling opening game resulted in a win for Moyle Rovers over Fermoy who went on to top the group undefeated. Fethard Blue opened with a draw against Templemore followed by a narrow loss to Moyle Rovers conceding a last minute goal. Fermoy defeated Fethard Blue in the final game of the group to go forward to the Cup Semi-Final.

In the Shield semi-final, Fethard Blue had a great win over Abbeyside while in the other semi-final Moycarkey defeated Templemore. In the final, following a very close encounter, Fethard Blue recorded a thrilling victory for this young team to huge roars from the supporters.
In the Cup semi-final, Fethard White defeated Fermoy 3-08 to 1-02 while Moyle Rovers came from behind to defeat St. Pat’s/Commercials setting up a repeat of last year’s County U16 Final between Moyle Rovers and Fethard. Fethard had a great win in a tough game on a scoreline of 1-6 to 0-4. It was a fitting end when the final goal of the day was also scored by Laura Stocksborough. Fethard recorded their fifth win to become deserving winners of a very memorable tournament.

The Stocksborough and Flanagan families along with the Fethard Ladies Football Club would like to extend their warm appreciation to all teams who participated on the day, to those who provided refreshments, refereed or helped in any way to make the day such a success. After the games a BBQ was enjoyed by all in Lonergans, thanks to Paul and Angela for the delicious food which finished off a great day for all involved.

Bernard Feery and Miceál McCormack, two Fethard AC athletes who performed well at the Munster Masters track and field championships held in Waterford Athletic Arena.


On Sunday last Fethard Athletic Club had only two participants at the Munster Masters track and field championships held in Waterford Athletic Arena. Early in the morning at 11am, club secretary Miceál McCormack lead the charge for a good while in the 3,000 meter walking event, eventually winning a gold medal in the over-65 age group in a personal best time. The track in the Arena was only laid two years ago and it was a wonderful experience to compete on it.
In the early afternoon Bernard Feery had his first race of the day – the 1,500 meters race - coming away with a good time and bronze medal. Bernard was well warmed up for his speciality event, the 3000 meters, which was to follow later. Needless to say, Bernard lead from the gun right up to the end, and after giving a flawless run to took the top honours.

The amount of hours these two athletes have put in over the year are a great example and yielded their deserved awards on Sunday. Well done boys. Training continues on Monday nights as usual at the Ballroom at 7pm, see ye there.

Died in England
The death has occurred on Thursday, July 28, of Con Fitzgerald, Queensbury, Bradford, England, and formerly from Knockelly, Fethard. The late Con was a loyal supporter of Fethard & Killusty Emigrants’ Newsletter every year and kept in touch with happenings in his home town. May he rest in peace.

Pilgrimage to Holy Year Cross on August 7
To avoid a ‘clash with the ash’, the Fethard & Killusty annual parish pilgrimage to Holy Year Cross on Slievenamon will take place on Sunday, August 7, with the usual starting time of 1pm from the Hill Wall.

As the walk from the designated car park in O’Donnell’s field to the Hill Wall will take about twenty minutes, we ask you to keep this in mind when you are planning your walk to the starting point, which will commence as close to time as possible. For those unable to make the climb, the Rosary will be recited in the tent from 1.30pm in O’Donnell’s field car park. Please invite your friends to come along and take part in this annual pilgrimage.

The Holy Year Cross was erected by the people of the parish to commemorate the 'Holy Year' and was blessed by the late Rev. Patrick O’Donnell, Archbishop of Brisbane, Australia, on August 15, 1950. The cross was made of wood and extended 12’ by 9’ and each year the Holy Year Cross was illuminated both on Christmas night and Easter time using a lamp powered by wet batteries. In 1974 the wood of the Holy Year Cross had suffered from the extreme climatic conditions on Slievenamon over the years and had to be replaced by a concrete structure. That year the annual procession also had Stations of the Cross with smaller crosses erected at intervals from the entrance to Slievenamon.

Emigrant’s Newsletter time again
As we head into the second half of 2016 and the summer sunlight slowly recedes, our thoughts and plans for this year’s issue of Fethard & Killusty Emigrants’ Newsletter are again with us. With this in mind we ask for your ideas, photographs and articles for inclusion in this year’s publication.

The first Fethard Newsletter, sent by the Legion of Mary, was dated ‘Christmas 1960, but on checking the dates of events and deaths featured, we discovered that they all happened in 1959. We can only conclude that the Newsletter was published in December 1959 and posted before January 1960. The newsletter has progressed immensely from that first double-sided A4 page, back in 1959, to the full colour 252-page book it is today. The appreciation expressed in letters from those living away from home every year, makes our efforts at home very worthwhile.

As life moves along, so does our readership – we lose some of our older long-time readers and supporters, and gain many younger readers who take their places. With this in mind also, it would be lovely to receive articles, long or short, from all sections of our community at home or away. Articles and photographs can be sent by email to: newsletter@fethard.com or by mail to: Joe Kenny, Rocklow Road, Fethard, Co. Tipperary, E91 XR26.

UCD King John 800 Conference, Dublin Castle
The story of Fethard began with the coming of the Anglo-Normans to Ireland eight centuries ago. The low hill on which the town is sited was chosen as the location of a major settlement by a Norman lord, almost certainly William de Braose who had been installed by King John in 1201 as the chief tenant of a very substantial territory encompassing most of the modern county Tipperary.

The following information was brought to our attention by architectural historian, Prof. Tadhg O'Keeffe, who is fondly remembered in Fethard for his many informative lectures and his publication in 1995 of the ‘Archaeological and Historical Survey of Fethard’, commissioned by South Tipperary County Council, and in 2003, for his publication. ‘Irish Historic Towns Atlas: No. 13 Fethard’, as part of the Royal Irish Academy's brilliant Historic Town series.
UCD are hosting a major three-day International conference, from September 8-10, 2016, to commemorate the 800th anniversary of the death of King John. It will be the largest ever gathering of specialists in the life and legacy of John.

King John was the most important English king in Irish history, who died 800 years ago this year. This is a unique opportunity to hear the leading experts, Irish and international, historians and archaeologists, speak on King John's career.

We would love to see people attend who have a passion for local history. John was an internationally important king but no corner of Ireland was unaffected by events of his reign.
