Well done to Fethard Holy Trinity National School teachers and pupils on their video production (below) for this year's 'Challenge to Change' project ‘Home’ that highlights 'Homelessness'.
This has been a special project, with the aim of raising awareness on the topic of homelessness and the project also includes the release of an audio C.D., which is being sold from the school office to raise money for the Clonmel Community Soup Kitchen and The Alice Leahy Trust. If you would like to purchase a C.D. for €5, please contact the school, Tel: (052) 6131493.
Alice, originally from Annesgift, Fethard, was a co-founder and director of TRUST from 1975 to December 2015. The Alice Leahy Trust remains a non-judgemental, befriending, social and health service for people who are homeless.
Challenge to Change is a development education project aimed at young people attending Presentation Sisters' Primary and Post-Primary schools, and embraces the challenge of working with those who are marginalised and excluded, for whatever reason. By informing the students and the wider community the project aims to bring about a heightened awareness, a social consciousness, a broader vision and an appreciation of development issues.

Capacity crowds attended each of the five-night run of Fethard Players’ recent comedy production ‘Brush With a Body’, which ended on Saturday night last. On the final night, Fethard Players chairperson, Marian Gilpin, welcomed the new members who joined the cast for this production, Lisa Hanrahan, Jane Hayes and Darragh Corbett.
Marian went on to compliment the Players’ first joint lady production and presented bouquets to producers Anne Connolly and Ann Walsh.
On a more poignant note, Marian paid tribute to the late Percy O’Flynn, who died in the past year. Percy was a life-long member of Fethard Players and a huge help both on-stage and behind the scenes, providing advice, encouragement and always a full teapot at the ready for the cast during rehearsals and performances.
This was the third time Fethard Players performed ‘Brush With a Body’ – the first in 1976 and second time in 1991, both produced by Austin O’Flynn.
Fethard Pedallers encourage new cyclists
At a recent Fethard Pedallers committee meeting one of the items covered was the running of a beginners / improvers group to help people new to cycling or those returning after a break from the sport. To that end the group have organised a beginners group, which started on Sunday, April 9, and will run for four weeks, starting at a 20k cycle and working up to 50k.
The distance will increase week by week and at a suitable pace will make sure nobody is left behind. There will be five or more of the main group also on these outings to offer advice to anyone interested. All you need is a bike in good safe working order, a helmet and an interest in cycling and having a bit of fun.
At the end of the four weeks we hope the participants will also join the club and progress further. Club membership is only €10 this year plus cycling Ireland insurance of €40. Please let us know if you are interested. You can e-mail us at email@example.com and leave a message. It would be really useful for us to gauge the numbers interested. Looking forward to your feedback.
Minister Coveney opens new Fethard Water Supply Scheme By Aileen Hahesy, from The Nationalist, Thursday, April 6, 2017.
Photographed at the Official Opening of Fethard Water Treatment Plant in Cloneen on March 31, 2017 are L to R: Tipperary County Council CEO Joe MacGrath, Tipperary County Council Vice Chairperson Cllr Louise McLoughlin, Minister Simon Coveney and Irish Water MD Jerry Grant.
The completion of the Fethard Water Supply Scheme and treatment plant has resulted in the lifting of a long standing boil water notice for 120 households and the removal of two water supplies serving 11,000 customers from the EPA's Remedial Action list, the official opening of the Scheme by Minister Simon Coveney was told.
The Minister for Housing, Planning, Community and Local Government, marked the official opening by unveiling a plaque at the Scheme's new treatment plant at Cloran, Cloneen on Friday morning, March 31, before touring the state-of-the art facility.
Photographed at the Official Opening of Fethard Water Treatment Plant in Cloneen on March 31, 2017 are L to R: Back L to R: Cllr John Fahey, Cllr Marie Murphy, Cllr Eddie O'Meara, former TD Tom Hayes, Deputy Michael Lowry, Deputy Mattie McGrath, Deputy Alan Kelly, Cllr Michael Fitzgerald, Cllr Imelda Goldsboro. Front L to R: Tipperary County Council CEO Joe MacGrath, Tipperary County Council Vice Chairperson Cllr Louise McLoughlin, Minister Simon Coveney and Irish Water MD Jerry Grant.
The new Fethard Water Supply Scheme that serves about 7,000 customers is part of a €15.2m investment by Irish Water in South Tipperary's water infrastructure that also includes the upgrade of the Burncourt Water Supply Scheme, which was officially opened a few weeks ago. The Fethard Scheme involved the construction of a new 6,500 cubic metres per-day water treatment plant, a 6,500 cubic metre reservoir, approximately 4km of pipelines, new river intake works on the Anner River and associated site works.
The Fethard water treatment plant is 2.5 times larger than the new Burncourt treatment plant and is supplied by four different water sources, namely Cloran, Gortnapisha and Walshbog mountain streams and the River Anner.
Photographed at the Official Opening of Fethard Water Treatment Plant in Cloneen on March 31, 2017 are L to R: Joe Burke, Cllr John Fahey, John Crowley, Gerry Robinson and Ricky Sheehan.
Co. Council Vice-Chairperson Cllr Louise McLouglin (FG) told the official opening ceremony at Cloneen Sports and Social Centre that the Scheme serves an area of approximately 480 sq. kms including the towns of Fethard and Killenaule and the rural areas of Cloneen, Drangan, Mullinahone, Glengoole, Gortnahoe, as far west as Moyglass and as far as the Kilkenny county boundary in the east. It delivers drinking water to approximately 3,800 homes, agricultural, commercial and industrial enterprises. And she pointed out that the completion of the water treatment plant last October enabled Irish Water to lift a long-standing boil water notice and the removal of the Cloran and Gortnapisha water supplies from the EPA’s Remedial Action List of supplies at potential risk.
Cllr O'Loughlin outlined that Galway based Glan Agua Ltd was awarded the contract to design, build and operate the water scheme for 10 years. The contract commenced on August 18, 2014, and she congratulated the company on completing the project ahead of schedule last year.
Minister for Housing, Planning, Community & Local Government, Simon Coveney TD, unveiling a plaque to mark the official opening of the Fethard Water Treatment Plant on Slievenamon. L to R: County Council Vice Chairperson Cllr Louise McLoughlin, Irish Water MD Jerry Grant, Minister Simon Coveney and Tipperary County Council CEO Joe MacGrath.
In his speech, Minister Coveney that Irish Water's investment programme was having a direct and dramatic impact on the quality of life and health and safety of many households in the area served by the Fethard water scheme. He welcomed to the official opening ceremony some of the landowners and farmers in the Fethard Water Supply area, whom he praised for taking responsibility for ensuring the activities on their land didn't impact on the quality of water supplies.
He said the new Fethard scheme replaced water services infrastructure and pipeline put in place in the 1950s with something that was "best in class" in terms of water treatment.
"As a result of that many of the homes in this area operating under a boil water notice on and off since 2007 can look forward with a lot of confidence to a consistence supply of quality clean water."
Minister Coveney with local community members L to R: Liam Brett, Noel Fitzgerald, Lucy McCormack, Minister Simon Coveney, John Anglim and John O’Rourke.
Minister Coveney said, Irish Water had made huge progress in a short space of time. The opening of new water treatment plants and replacing water pipelines were often regarded as “mundane” and “non-glamorous work" but they were hugely important.
"It's only when it's not done that we get coverage and comment on the consequences of not doing it. Back in 2014 there were 23,000 households in Ireland on boil water notices; there are now approximately 3,500."
Irish Water MD Jerry Grant said the new treatment plant replaced an old plant that chlorinated the water supply to kill bacteria and protect people from many infections but it didn’t kill viruses caused by complex organisms like cryptosporidium and THMs. The new treatment plant fully treats the water against all these organisms, which means it meets EU drinking water and other water regulation standards.
Mr Grant also spoke about Irish Water’s recent investment of more than €7 million in the rehabilitation of 18.3km of water mains in Fethard as well as Coalbrook and Ballingarry areas. This investment ensured customers a consistent water supply, ending the regular interruptions they had been experiencing.
He mentioned a number of upcoming major water infrastructure investment projects Irish Water is planning in the county. They are the Thurles Regional Water Supply Scheme, which will go out to tender this year and an upgrade of the Clonmel Water Supply Scheme and associated storage, while planning for a major new scheme based on abstraction from the River Suir at Marlfield.
The official opening ceremony was attended by Tipperary Co. Council CEO Joe MacGrath; Co. Council Director of Water Services Sean Keating and other senior Co. Council staff. A large number of local politicians joined Cllr McLoughlin at the ceremony. They included TDs Alan Kelly (Lab), Mattie McGrath (Ind) and Michael Lowry (Ind), former FG TD Tom Hayes, Carrick-on-Suir Municipal District Council Chairperson Cllr Imelda Goldsboro, Cllrs Eddie O'Meara, John Fahey, Marie Murphy and Michael Fitzgerald.
Irish Water chief hails from Fethard
Irish Water MD Jerry Grant speaking at the Official Opening of Fethard Water Treatment Plant in Cloneen on March 31, 2017
Irish Water chief Jerry Grant returned to his Co Tipperary roots on Friday to attend the official opening of the Fethard Water Supply Scheme and treatment plant. The utility's Managing Director hails from Killerk near Fethard so the completion of this scheme held a special significance for him. His brother Tom farms at Killerk while another brother Peter lives in Fethard and his sister Breda Ryan lives in Golden.
Mr Grant joined Irish Water at its inception in 2013 and served as the company’s head of Assets Management until his appointment as Irish Water's MD in May last year. The civil engineer spent most of his career working for the Cork based consultant engineering and environmental consulting firm M.C. O’Sullivan, which was taken over by RPS. He was MD of RPS Consulting Engineering Ireland from 2002 to 2012.
He said being involved in the setting up of Irish Water from scratch has been “incredibly interesting” and a “privilege” and insisted he has never regarded it as a difficult task. Mr Grant said the Fethard & Burncourt Water Scheme was the first major water infrastructure investment projects Irish Water signed off on after it was set up and it gave him great pleasure to be in back in Tipperary at the official opening of this important piece of infrastructure.
The death has occurred on Monday, April 10, 2017, of Dan Walsh, Marlfield, Clonmel, and formerly Fethard, peacefully at South Tipperary General Hospital. Very deeply regretted by his loving wife Patty, sons Thomas and Eamon, daughters Leisha, Joan and Annette, sons-in-law, daughters-in-law, grandchildren Damian, Conor, Sara, Aisling, Evan, Alec, Danny Aoife and Ben, great-granddaughter Penny, sisters Ellen, Rose, Rita and Mary, brother Pat, brothers-in-law, sisters-in-law, nephews nieces, relatives and friends. May he rest in peace.
Reposing at O’Donoghue’s Funeral Home, Clonmel, on Tuesday, April 11, from 4pm with removal at 7pm to St Mary’s Church, Irishtown. Requiem Mass at 2.30pm on Wednesday with burial immediately afterwards in Marlfield Cemetery.
