Local girl to ride in Punchestown Charity Race
Best of Luck to Mary Jane Kearney who will take part in the 2017 Punchestown Kidney Research Fund Charity Race. This will take place on Saturday, April 29, and is traditionally the last race on the last day of the Punchestown Festival, a meeting regarded as the Irish Cheltenham. This is the twenty-eight year of the Charity Race and to date €1,385,210 has been raised by the fund. Incidentally, the week of April 1–8 was Organ Donor Awareness week, organised by the Irish Kidney Association, so it is fitting that this fundraiser takes places at this time.

Mary Jane is preparing well for the race, is concentrating on her fitness and doing all she can to be fit and ready. She says that is has always been her dream to ride in a race and to be able to raise funds for such a worthwhile cause while doing so is an added bonus.

A fundraising campaign is currently underway. A dedicated Charity Race Account has been opened at AIB, Fethard, and also on Justgiving.com

Should you wish to contribute or if you require any further information please contact Mary Jane (email: maryjanekearney4@gmail.com). Your support would be greatly appreciated.

Spring Clean at Drumdeel

Recently, a large group of local residents from the Drumdeel area, met to pick up litter on the roadsides as part of the Spring Clean initiative championed by An Taisce. This has become an annual event, as sadly fly tipping and dumping seems to be as bad as ever. The many black bags collected represent the huge amount of dumped waste, much of which could be recycled for free at the recycling centre on the Cashel Road in Clonmel.

The Spring Clean initiative is supported by local authorities who pick up the waste afterwards and by the volunteers who pick up large quantities of rubbish, much of which is pretty disgusting. Bags of rotting nappies anyone? Lovely!

Here are some interesting facts about waste, from An Taisce. Local Authorities spend tens of millions of euros every year on cleaning the streets in Ireland and trying to prevent people from dumping their waste illegally – an enormous amount of money that could be spent on better things! Estimates indicate that collecting litter is nearly ten times more expensive per tonne than collecting domestic waste.
Most products we buy and use cause greenhouse gas emissions in some way, e.g. during production and distribution. They also contribute towards exhausting our natural resources. Packaging takes energy to produce, therefore by cutting down on packaging production, and also through recycling, we can reduce the amount of energy used and limit the release of further greenhouse gases in to the atmosphere.

Your contribution during the National Spring Clean, however big or small, will have real and measurable benefits for our environment. For example: (a) For every aluminium can collected and recycled enough energy is saved to run your television for three hours! (b) For 1kg of recycled plastics collected, 1.5kg of carbon dioxide is prevented from being released to the atmosphere – the same amount of carbon dioxide released by toasting 30 slices of bread! (c) By recycling 1kg of paper instead of landfilling, enough energy is saved to run an energy-saving bulb non-stop for two days! For 1kg of recycled glass, the saving is 300g of carbon dioxide.

Easter Saturday, April 15, Fethard GAA Club held their annual dinner dance in Cahir House Hotel, where they had a very enjoyable night and honoured past and present players. The evening, organised by John Hurley (chairman), Stephen Fitzgerald and Mary Godfrey, kicked off with an excellent meal followed by speeches and presentations. Noel Byrne did a top class job as he called and introduced each player for their individually presentation. Two great servants to the club and county – Michael ‘Buddy’ Fitzgerald and Brian Burke, carried out the medal presentations.

A high point of the evening was a special presentation to Paul Fitzgerald, who has achieved so much to-date and is still making he presence felt in the GAA. Paul’s achievements were highlighted when Noel Byrne recalled the list of medals and competitions that Paul won throughout his career – a list that extends to both codes of the GAA. Then Jimmy O’Shea, through to character, spoke at the end of the meal and gave an impromptu speech that summed up his life-long association, and friendships made, with Fethard GAA Club.

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'.

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 fethardpedallers@gmail.com and leave a message. It would be really useful for us to gauge the numbers interested. Looking forward to your feedback.
