Clonmel Credit Union South Tipperary Intermediate Football Championship Final. Fethard 0-16, Fr. Sheehy’s 0-9.
At Cahir on Saturday in the Clonmel Credit Union South Tipperary Intermediate Championship Football final, Fethard rounded off their year in style by adding the divisional title to the county crown they captured two weeks ago.

In a game in which ‘The Blues’ always held the upper hand, they ran out 0-16 to 0-9 victors against Fr. Sheehy’s, having led at the break by 0-7 to 0-4. On a day when Fethard were saying a hopeful long goodbye to intermediate grade – they go senior once again in 2017 – they were never led at any stage, even when playing against the fresh wind in the first half. The game’s outstanding performance came from Fethard centre-forward Brian Healy who accounted for half his side’s tally, kicking eight points, including some delightful scores from play.

Crowned county champions two weeks ago with a one point win over Golden/Kilfeacle in Cashel, Fethard took a harsh lesson and a heavy defeat in Clonmel on Sunday last against Kenmare Shamrocks in the Munster intermediate championship quarter-final. But one could see against Fr. Sheehy's, in their formation and work rate throughout, that ‘The Blues’ had benefited from two tough games and particularly in defence where they were a much tighter ship than against the Kerry side on Sunday last.

The return of Ciaran O’Meara at top of the right for Fethard was welcome news also and he contributed three points before his second half substitution. But there were many other impressive displays for the winners notably from Gavin Fitzgerald, Cian Maher, Paul Moloney, Brian Delahunty and Chris and Jody Sheehan.

Clonmel Credit Union South Tipperary Intermediate Football Championship Final. Fethard 0-16, Fr. Sheehy’s 0-9.
At Cahir on Saturday in the Clonmel Credit Union South Tipperary Intermediate Championship Football final, Fethard rounded off their year in style by adding the divisional title to the county crown they captured two weeks ago.

Fr Sheehy’s, who defeated Clonmel Commercials in their semi-final, had their star performer in Colin English who never stopped all through, the All-Ireland minor hurling medal winner in September, looking the most likely threat against a water-tight defence. Team captain Sean Flynn too tried hard, his early second half black card being a big loss to his side. While midfielder Tom Conway and Ben and Brian Hyland also worked tirelessly.

But all told Fethard had too much in reserve for the challengers, and strengthened themselves as the game went on with substitutes Kenneth O’Donnell and Cathal Hurley adding second half points to ensure there would be no way back for the Clogheen side.

As he had in the County Intermediate Final, referee Sean Lonergan again issued four black cards over the hour, perhaps Kieran King the unluckiest of the quartet when sent to the line with 10 minutes remaining. Referee: Sean Lonergan (Moyle Rovers).

Local Fethard ‘1916 Hero’ to be remembered
One of the most active people in the whole ‘Revolutionary Decade’ of Irish history was a Fethard native, D.P. Walsh, whose story has been somewhat undiscovered - even in his hometown.

D.P. Walsh (standing, extreme right, in uniform) with the Tipperary Football team, which replayed the ill-fated ‘Bloody Sunday’ fixture (of November 21, 1920) on June 11, 1922. Also, in the picture (seated, centre of middle row) is Walsh’s friend Dan Breen. Fethard were the dominant football club in Tipperary at that time and Ned O’Shea was captain of the Tipperary team. The D.P. Walsh Cup is presented every year to the winners of the County Tipperary Junior ‘A’ Hurling Championship. Back L to R: J. Gregg (in white sweater), Bill Ryan, Bill Barrett, Bill Grant, Arthur Carroll (goalie), Ned O'Callaghan (at back wearing cap), Pat Davoren (member selection committee), Ned Cummins, Tommy Ryan (Castlegrace), Thomas Ryan (Clonmel) secretary Tipp Board, and in uniform is D.P. Walsh (Fethard). Middle L to R: A. Carew (County Board Secretary), Mick Nolan, Vincent Vaughan, Dan Breen T.D. Jerry Shelly, Dick Lanigan, Mick Tobin. Front L to R: Jim Ryan, Jimmy Doran, Jimmy McNamara, Tommy Powell, Joe O'Neill (trainer), Mick Arrigan, Ned O'Shea (captain) and Gus McCarthy.

On Tuesday, November 15, at 8pm, the Fethard Historical Society as part of their ‘1916 Programme’ will host a lecture in the Abymill Theatre by noted Tipperary historian, Seán Hogan, on the life and exploits of D.P. Walsh. Admission is €5 and refreshments served after the lecture.

D.P. Walsh had a very interesting ‘revolutionary career’ indeed. He was a key figure in Michael Collin’s underground group who procured arms and then shipped them to Ireland. He was jailed after the 1916 Rising. Later he was part of a great IRA escape from Strangeways Prison in Manchester, but ended up in prison in Britain again, only being released in December 1921 under the Treaty arrangements.

D.P. Walsh died in 1942, aged 50, and is buried in Powerstown cemetery. Family descendants coming for the lecture will also visit his grave as part of the ‘Remembrance Event’. For further information email: history@fethard.com or phone: 086 3905373 or 087 9009722.

Congratulations to Ms Madge (McGrath) Fogarty, formerly from Rathkenny, Fethard, who was recently a monthly winner in the community category of the Glanmire Sports, Business and Community Awards. A native of lovely Fethard town, she is a very proud Tipperary woman and a mother of two boys, Shane and Tomás, who both now have very successful careers and are living away from home.

Madge, daughter of the late Kay and Denis McGrath, founded PND (Postnatal Depression Ireland) in 1992, at a time when there was no support for women suffering from Post Natal Depression anywhere in Ireland. She is current chairperson and the group are due to celebrate its 25th anniversary in 2017.

Together with her lifelong friend Bernie Kealey from Dublin, Madge launched the first Irish book on PND in 2010 entitled ‘Recovering from Post Natal Depression’, and dedicated it to Nollaig and Tadgh Kenneally, who lost their lives in 2007. They were the cruel victims of Postnatal Depression.

Included are Cllr. Joe Kavanagh, Deputy Lord Mayor, Joe and Shane Fogarty, Kathleen Lynch, PND members, Bernie Kealey, Joan Murphy and Judith Greene-Goodyear, Treasurer Glanmire Area Community Association.

Madge also joined Glanmire Area Community Association close on 25 years ago and ended up being secretary for 20 years and over the years has become an integral part of Glanmire and its environs, community wise.

Madge has featured on many TV and radio shows, been to the Dáil, spoken at the Guinness Hop Store and Trinity College Dublin and in UCC in Cork and many other parts of Ireland. She has recently been invited to speak at an International Conference on Women’s Mental Health in the RDS in Dublin from March 6–9, 2017, which will be one of the many highlights of her group’s 25th Anniversary.

A truly remarkable woman in every sense of the word, Madge Fogarty is a worthy recipient of the Community Award sponsored by Michael Magner and his team at Fitzgeralds’ Vienna Woods Hotel.

Community Games AGM report
Fethard & Killusty Community Games held their Annual General Meeting in the Tirry Community Centre on Wednesday, October 26, 2016. Despite a small attendance this proved to be a very positive and innovated meeting with strong commitment from all present to continue providing opportunities to the youth of the area to participate in the sport of their choice.

Our secretary reported considerable success during 2016. At area level competitors took part in the following events: Art, Athletics, Handwriting, Swimming, Camogie, Hurling, U10 Football, Girls U12 and U14 Football and Tag Rugby which resulted in the following competitors winning medals at the county finals: Ines Byrne, Freya Byrne, Ronan O’Meara, Ryan Walsh, Mark O’Meara and Isobel Maher.
In the team events the U11 Hurling team, Camogie team and U14 Girls Football team all reached the south finals. The U14 Mixed Tag Rugby team won silver medals at the county final held in Clonmel Rugby Club. There was joy in Semple Stadium with double county gold for the U10 Football team and the U12 Girls Football team. More celebrations followed in U.L. where the U12 Girls became Munster Champions and the U10 Football team reached the semifinal.

The icing on the cake came at National Finals in Athlone with well deserved bronze medals won by the U12 Girls team This was a super achievement and the support for the teams during the campaign was wonderful. A big thank you to the mentors for their co-operation and dedication. Congratulations to all those who participated.

It was disappointing we hadn’t more parents present at the AGM but we hope this will improve in the future.

Outgoing chairman, Joe Keane, who retired from his position at the meeting, was complimented on his 25 years of service to Community Games. Joe, who wore many hats during his term, stated he is prepared to continue to help whenever requested. He wished the games the best of luck in the future.

There are big changes on the horizon for all involved and all areas must be affiliated and paid before November 30. There will also be a new national final held in Abbotstown, Dublin, next May. Any event on this programme must be entered before November 30. A full list of events may be viewed on Tipperary Community Games website (www.tipperarycommunitygames.com). Athlone will no longer be the venue for the August finals.

The County AGM will be held in the Anner Hotel on Wednesday, November 9, at 7.30pm, so a busy time ahead for the new team and officers elected for the coming year as follows: Micheál Maher (chairman), John O’Flynn (vice-chairman), Noreen Sheehy (secretary), Siobhan Maher & Noreen Sheehy (joint treasurers), Siobhan Maher (child officer), John O’Flynn (development officer), Ruth O’Meara (games director), Micheál Maher (company member), Peggy Colville and Noreen Sheehy (public relations), Noreen Sheehy and Micheál Maher (delegates to county committee).
