Fethard Ballroom important public meeting in March
Fethard Ballroom are holding a public meeting in on Saturday, March 25, at 8.15pm in the ballroom, to discuss the running of the ballroom and the election of some new members willing to get involved to help with the continuance of this fantastic community facility. Again, the time has come when those involved in the running of the hall want to take a step back and make room for new voluntary help, which unfortunately is getting harder in these present times.

It is now shortly coming up to the 24th anniversary when on St. Patrick’s night, 17 March, 1993, the former Country Club Ballroom, opened its doors under the umbrella of the Fethard & Killusty Community Council. The Community Council purchased the ballroom in very bad repair about twelve months previously. However, community spirit came to light when committee members and various other members of the community spent endless nights working to reinstate this building to its former glory.

A limited company with charitable status was later formed and in 1995 the original debt of £47,341 was reduced to £20,379, with great credit going to the Fethard Festival ‘Mayoral Candidates’ who worked extremely hard to reduce the debt and enable repayments of the subscriber loans to commence. The directors for that year were: Bernard Walsh (chairman); Peter Grant (vice-chairman); Seamus Barry (treasurer); Teresa Roche (asst. treasurer); Robert Phelan (secretary); Joe Keane (asst. secretary); Chris O'Dwyer; David O'Donnell; Catherine O'Connell; Peggy Colville; Pat Byrne and Paddy Hickey. Joan Heffernan, Gay Horan and James Roche were later co-opted on to the board.

In 1997, the Ballroom experienced a very difficult year when they were faced with a large increase in insurance costs due to some claims. Thanks to the dedication of the committee these problems were overcome and they were able to continue and host a variety of activities for the community for the following years.

In 2001, founder member David O’Donnell resigned as chairman. The committee continued to improve the facilities under the direction of new chairman Mick Aherne, fitting new doors and windows, new carpeting, and non-slip floor covering in the kitchen. These improvements helped to eliminate draughts and reduce heat loss and add to the comfort of patrons.

In 2007, chairman Mick Ahern sadly died, and for the following years the hall was run by the following committee: Gay Horan (chairman), Monica Aherne (treasurer), Robert Phelan (secretary), Sheila O’Donnell, David O’Donnell, Breda Spillane, Sean Spillane, Pat Horan, Margaret Phelan, Paddy Hickey and Seamus Barry.

Today, the day-to-day running of the Ballroom is now discharged by Monica Aherne, with the help of a participant from Fethard Community Employment Scheme. The public meeting on Saturday, March 25, will hopefully see the start of a new lease of life for this very successful community venue.

Fethard Ballroom, originally the Capitol Cinema which first opened in January, 1946. In 1967 a local group, ‘Fethard Enterprises’, headed by Paddy O’Flynn acquired the premises and officially opened in December of the same year as ‘The Capitol Ballroom'.

Labour Party looking for a new candidate
The Labour Party in the Fethard-Carrick electoral area is looking for a new candidate to stand for the 2019 local elections as local man, Liam Hayes, has refused all attempts by the Party to get him to stand again, after narrowly missing out last time out.

Fethard & Killusty Anglers AGM

Any adults or juveniles wishing to join this club as a new or current member, can contact Seán Maher on 085 7050580 or Colm Hackett at 086 8397868. It has been a mild winter so let’s hope the water temperature is to the liking of the trout come Paddies day, get out the fly rod and waders and get those flies ready to fool some trout.

This club has access to some fantastic water to fish on the Anner and the Clashawley rivers. This invaluable resource is only possible due to the kind permission of all the landowners, so please respect the land, fencing and livestock every time you venture out. Tight lines for the 2017 season.

Fethard Tidy Towns meeting
A meeting to continue the work of Fethard Tidy Towns will be held in the Tirry Community Centre on this coming Thursday, March 2, at 8pm and you are earnestly asked to come along and give your ideas and suggestions.

In these present times we notice it is getting harder and more difficult to find people willing to give their voluntary time to community work. As the volunteers currently involved slowly and deservedly step back after years of service in their community, we now need willing volunteers to step into their shoes and carry on and maintain the great work already in place.

Fethard GAA Club commenced last week with their development of a new all-weather AstroTurf pitch on their grounds. This facility is badly needed for the growing number of local inhabitants playing sport and will greatly enhance the town’s many other sporting amenities. All going well, the complex should be up and running by early summer.

L to R: Jimmy O'Shea and Joe Keane, both members of Fethard Tidy Towns who have worked tirelessly to keeping the town tidy and clean for many years and continue to do so.

Fethard Tidy Towns, led by chairman Joe Keane since 2009, is now appealing for more local support to maintain the high-quality work achieved over the past eight years in the town. Due to other commitments and a residential move, Joe will not be able to offer the same level of support as he has done in the past, but has offered to remain and be of assistance in an advisory capacity. A meeting to continue the work of Fethard Tidy Towns will be held in the Tirry Community Centre on Thursday, March 2, at 8pm and you are earnestly asked to come along and give your ideas and suggestions.
In these present times we notice it is getting harder and more difficult to find people willing to give their voluntary time to community work. As these seasoned volunteers currently involved slowly and deservedly step back from years of service in their community, it is unfortunate that no others appear to be willing to step into their shoes and carry on their great work.

Fethard a very attractive place to live
Fethard Community has always had a great community spirit, resulting in the above average infrastructure of community driven facilities in the town, such as the many sporting facilities and community organisations, community centre, youth centre, day-care centre, theatre, ballroom, playground, walks and historical features such as the renovated Town Hall. All these help to make Fethard a very attractive place to live but they should not be taken for granted as they all very much depend on voluntary support. Let’s not wait until they are all closed down before we decide to act!

The following message was received from Ailish Maher, originally from Coolmoyne, Fethard, and now living in Spain.

“Hello Fethard! I was born in Coolmoyne, with four brothers, Denis, Seamus, Paul and Kevin. Most of us attended Coolmoyne National School and were then transferred to Fethard when Coolmoyne NS closed.

Around the time I was aged 11, I really lost contact with my home area from as I then went to various boarding schools, starting with Coláiste na Rinne, then on to Dublin to study, followed by London, Catalonia and Galicia (Spain) and Portugal. I also started working summers away from home from about the age of 15. Until recently I lived in Barcelona, and now about to move to Montblanc, in the Spanish province of Tarragona, just 5 kms from a haybarn with a small plot of land I'm now fixing up.

I am a freelancer, working as a translator and academic editor of non-native English. In recent years I've been spending a few months of each year in Coolmoyne, along with Seamus Maher and Kevin, who now live in Australia. We are, incidentally, hoping to organise a Coolmoyne Reunion on Saturday, September 9, 2017, to mark 50 years since the national school closed. The main instigator of this reunion is Sean O'Donovan, who advised me to make contact. I hope to someday maybe meet up with people I went to school with at the Presentation Convent.”


For those interested in getting involved or attending this proposed reunion, they should contact Sean O’Donovan, Coolmoyne, Tel: 086 2594337.

Congratulations to our Girls Mini U10 and U12 teams on their fantastic victories at the Munster Girls Blitz in Youghal. Between the two teams we were extremely well represented in talent and the twelve girls played their hearts out.

Lead by Captain Sophia O'Brien who, with two fine runs, placed two powerful tries down. Ciara Fleming was constant in her tackling and scored numerous tries with very strong runs through a tough defence. Not to be outdone was her twin sister, Aoife Fleming, who, with great ball carrying skills, also tackled well and scored for her team.

Siobhan Bergin was great in the centre with fine off-loads and good support. Lia Coady showed great speed on the wing and scored many times with good tackling. Our scrum half Evelyn Gayson showed the importance of quick ball and fine speed and set up a good few tries. Not forgetting Niamh Flatley for her tough tackling, strong runs Resulting in tries. Our other scrum-half, pocket rocket tackler, Aine Connolly, also scored great tries. Christine Gaynor showed super passing skills and fine support to her teammates. Miley Morrissey was tough at the breakdowns and fine support to Emmaleigh Cuddihy who put in big tackles and a handful of tries. Last but by no means least Zoe Prout was extremely strong in defence with top tackles and great try scoring.
