Among his many achievements, Austy was a founder member of Fethard Development Association in 1968 and went on to form the Fethard & Killusty Community Council in 1976. He was the driving force behind the Fethard Players since the 1970s and the refurbishment of the old derelict Coffey’s Mill into the fabulous Abymill Theatre, which opened its doors in 1988.

Well done Austin and thanks for your influential role in local affairs throughout the past years and we look forward to many more years of active community service yet to come.

'Coffee, cookies and words, words, words' at Fethard's Poetry Pop-Up Café

Over thirty people came together in the Stable Café, situated downstairs in the newly opened Fethard Horse Country Experience, to celebrate World Poetry Day last Thursday, April 27. The brief was to come along and read a poem, one you had written yourself or a favourite by a chosen poet.

We served up a plethora of poems, from much-loved, perennial favourites like Robert Frost’s ‘Stopping By Woods On A Snowy Evening’, recited beautifully by Marian Gilpin, to the newly-minted words of local poets Tom Power (Ballingarry) and Pat Feehily (Clonmel). Mary Hanrahan read her own ‘Thoughts Dance’, about the trials of writing and that magic moment when it all comes together on the page.

Georgina Conroy raised a chuckle with Roald Dahl’s take on ‘Little Red Riding Hood’, while Dóirín Saurus beguiled us with her chosen ‘Spider’. Yvonne Casey shared ‘Monster in the House’, a poem with a twist that spoke to the child in all of us, while Anne O’Donnell took us down memory lane with Longfellow’s nostalgic ‘My Lost Youth’.
In tribute to our surroundings, Goldie Newport and Carol Kenny recited poems about the Town Hall long ago and Fethard author, John Fogarty, shared a wonderfully poetic prose piece depicting his memories of the dances there in his youth.

Photographed at the poetry readings held in the new Stable Café, situated downstairs at Fethard Horse Country Experience to celebrate 'World Poetry Day' on Thursday, April 27, are L to R: Maureen Maher, Patricia Treacy, Cecile Purcell and Kate Corcoran.

Kate Corcoran introduced us to ‘Longing’ by Ethiopian poet Mengistu Lemma, written while he lived in London, an intensely moving depiction of what it is to live in one place while part of you yearns to be elsewhere. It is an emotion with which all exiles can identify.
Congratulations to two ladies who made their debut at reading in public: Marie O’Hara who read her own poem ‘747’ (a mesmerising account of cardiac arrest) and Christine Nevin who had selected the very apposite ‘Trainers’.

We would like to thank everyone who came along at such short notice, especially those who came to listen and were such an appreciative audience. We’re especially delighted that some young people were present too. We’re planning to do it again in the near future and we’re already promised haikus, poems en francais and as Ghaeilge, as well as some new readers.

Coffee, cookies and words, words, words – what more could one ask for? As one lady later remarked it was, “a most pleasant sojourn, in lovely surroundings”.

Just a reminder that Fethard Horse Country Experience is now open from 10am to 4pm, from Wednesday to Sunday, with a special introductory admission fee of €5.

Marathon Man Joe Lacey (61) does it again for Parkinsons Research
 Joe Lacey finishing his second marathon at the age of 61 and raising £16,685 for Parkinson UK to help fund research and provide supportive care.
Joe Lacy, originally from Moyglass and now living in Malaysia, ran his first ever marathon at the age of sixty, last year and raised more than £17,000 for Parkinson's research. This year on Sunday, April 23, Joe ran his second marathon in exactly the same time, and with the help of his supporters, raised £16,685 for Parkinson UK to help fund research and provide supportive care.

What makes this achievement more meritorious is that Joe was diagnosed almost three years ago with Parkinson's after seeking advice from his family doctor when he noticed a tremor in his left hand.
Since then Joe wants to raise as much money as possible to help existing patients manage the disease and help research find a cure.

After recently visiting the World Parkinson Congress in Portland, it was really enlightening for Joe to see all the projects funded and supported by Parkinson UK, and encouraging to see how many brilliant dedicated doctors and scientists are working on finding a cure. He feels they are on the verge of a major breakthrough but research needs money and that has spurred his amazing fundraising drive. Joe is also dedicated in raising money for Parkinson's Ireland and Malaysian Parkinson's who both do amazing work to support patients.

The Morrissey, Colville and Connolly cousins enjoyed a great weekend of sport which commenced at the finals of the Belline Equestrian League held in Piltown, Kilkenny. This league was run over a nine-week period and resulted in a win for Amy Morrissey in a jump off against the clock in the final of the ‘60 Event’. Amy also finished 4th in the overall league. Her cousin Patrick Colville finished 4th in the final against the clock and joint 5th, with his brother William, in the overall league. Amy was also 2nd in the jump off in the ‘70 event’ and 3rd overall in that league.

William Colville also finished 3rd to Rosie Mai O’Grady, Killenaule, who gave a peach of a ride, with Rosie Farrell finishing in second place.
