Best of Luck to Ms Margaret O’Neill
It is with sadness that we bid farewell to Ms Margaret O’Neill who served as Home School Community liaison officer in the school for the last six years. Margaret was extremely diligent in the position and was well-known to the Fethard parents. She organised many activities for the parents during her time in the school and liaised well between the parents, the school and the community of Fethard.

We wish Margaret all the best in her new role with Coiscéim in Scoil Ruáin.

Fethard J1s win pre-season friendly
Congrats to our J1 team who beat Cill Dara in the return leg of there pre season friendly last night in Kildare. Game finished 33-5 in favour of Fethard. Fethard started off very quick and the new centre combination of Ashley Western and Sam Bergerson proved too hard to stop when some good link play saw Sam cross the white wash to touch down under the post. Try converted by Gary Kavanagh. It wasn't long before Fethard were back on the score sheet with Bergerson touching down for the second time after a dominant scrum with Rob Hall and James Smith driving forces in the second row. Gary added the conversion.

In the second half Fethard continued their dominance with Jonathan Spillane Martin Murphy and Danny Lambe proving crucial in the front row. Some good link play between the back rows Kieran Power Chris Large and the Paul Scully saw space created out wide and Gary Kavanagh touched down and added the conversion to leave the score 21-0 to Fethard. Cill Dara fought back but some great defence from Andy Welsh and Rodgy Kavanagh proved too strong for the home side.

Good attacking play from the Fethard backs allowed Western touch down on the side line. With only 10 minutes to play Fethard continued to pile on the pressure and some great pick and goes and quick thinking from Fethards 9 Conor Kavanagh who spread the ball wide saw Andrew Phelan touch down in the corner. Kavanagh added his fourth conversion leaving the score 33-0. It was the final play of the game that saw Cill Dara cross the white wash to touch down in the corner. Overall it was a great team performance from Fethard with a great defensive effort.

Training continues at 7.45pm Wednesday and Fridays. Next match Saturday the 9th September at 7:00 in Fethard against Waterford city. All support welcome.

Communicating with Exotic Trees
This is a meditative workshop taking place at Clonacody House on Sunday, October 1, hosted by Earthwise and Clonacody House, and focusses on perceiving tree energies.

When Jackie Queally took a year to meditate one by one with the Celtic Trees, she wrote a book called Reconnecting with Celtic Trees. Through the process she felt a new cycle was taking place and wondered how best to introduce this notion of an entirely new energy cycle that the planet is entering.

After visiting Clonacody House she realised that the exotic tree species growing there offered a doorway into this new consciousness. By engaging with an array of more exotic trees (or at least non-Celtic trees) she feels we can free ourselves of old habitual thinking and renew our senses and also renew our soul search at Michaelmas, an important time of the year.

The workshop takes place in Clonacody House – a beautiful yet warm-hearted Irish country house near the enchanting village of Fethard.
Come and explore its grounds, enjoy a gluten-free lunch and refreshments, and above all meet like-minded people in this special day to mark the turn of the seasons well. The cost of the workshop is
€95. Please pay in full, using PayPal, to info@earthwise.me or you can contact Jackie directly at jackiequeally@gmail.com for bank transfer details.

Medieval Carvings and Mason’s Marks in Fethard
A most interesting recessed carving in Chapel Lane, Fethard.

A most interesting recessed carving in Chapel Lane, Fethard.

As part of the Fethard Historical Society’s celebration of Heritage Week 2017, archaeologist Dr Louise Nugent welcomed a crowd of forty or so to her walkabout in Fethard last Thursday night as she explored the stone-carved heritage of Fethard. As well as interested locals and other Tipperary natives, there were people present who had travelled from as far afield as West Cork, Dublin and Kildare.

Louise began her walk at the Town Hall where she spoke about the three heraldic plaques that adorn the façade of the 17th century building: the Everard foundation plaque, the arms of John and Amy Everard (the benefactors of the original Alms House), and the arms of the Butlers of Dunboyne, who lived in Kiltinan castle. She first explained the origins of heraldry in the Middle Ages and outlined the general rules governing the bearing of arms, before talking about the particular features of each plaque and their significance.

The group then made its way down to the carved doorway on Main Street, that is the entrance to David Gorey’s studio. Louise sees this type of craftsmanship as very much a continuum of the folk art that evolved in the 18th and 19th centuries. She pointed out how important such art is in telling the story of our nation and how necessary it is to preserve it for posterity. Today, modern craftsmen like David draw on those stories and motifs from the past, reinterpreting them in a new way for the present generation.

The stone carving of a two-tailed cat beside the doorway led Louise onto tales of the Gobán Saor, a well-known figure in Irish folklore, whose origins reach back to the time of the ancient Celtic gods but who appears in tales from every century as a master craftsman with a hint of the rogue about him. While stories of the Gobán Saor exist all over Ireland, he has a particular affinity with Tipperary, especially with Derrynaflan where it is said he was finally laid to rest. Interestingly, from an archaeological point of view, the carving of a two-tailed cat, the motif most strongly associated with the Gobán Saor, is found predominantly in Tipperary.

In Chapel Lane there is a most interesting recessed carving which in fact incorporates two different pieces, one above the other. The first is a simple name plate inscribed ‘Russel’. The second piece, dating from the 18th century depicts a bishop, possibly St. Patrick, the origins of which are still unknown. Perhaps it relates to a church that once stood on this site, perhaps it refers to the time the houses on Chapel lane were built, or it may have originally been erected elsewhere and subsequently moved to its present location. The Fethard Historical Society would be most interested in hearing from anyone who has any further information about this carving.

The Abbey Church, founded in 1305, was the final port of call on Dr. Nugent’s fascinating tour and here the focus was on Mason’s Marks. The practice in medieval times was for individual master stone carvers or masons, as they were known, to inscribe their work with a symbol particular to them. Nowadays that allows historians to identify the work of ancient master craftsmen and to trace their travels from one location to another. In the Abbey, there is a proliferation of such mason’s marks to be found in and around the 15th century arches beside the main altar. While 13th century mason’s marks were usually made of just simple lines or hatchings, these 1400 examples are much more elaborate: interlaced stars, Celtic knots, a three-leafed sprig and an elegant, long-fingered hand among others. The evening concluded with refreshments and much lively discussion in the ICA Hall.
