Loving family man and great footballer Sean Moloney remembered

The late Sean Moloney photographed with his best friends on the occasion of his 80th Birthday celebrated in September 2017. L to R: John Whyte, Jimmy Connolly, Sean Moloney, Tossie (Carroll) Lawton and Frank Coffey.

The recent death of Sean Moloney, Cahir Road, Fethard, took place at his home on December 4, following an eight-month illness. Sean, aged 80, was husband of Alice, née Tobin, and father of Geraldine, John, Adrian, Mark, Louise and Clare. He was very well known in the South Tipperary area through his employment at Chadwicks in Clonmel where he was extremely popular with both staff and customers

Sean was a dedicated and loving family man, a very hard worker, a good friend and a kind considerate and helpful neighbour. However, it is fair to say that Sean will be long remembered for his great love of sport, particularly Gaelic games and his own talent at gaelic football.

Sean was arguably the best defender to ever wear the blue jersey of Fethard and few have worn any jersey with as much pride. Scrupulously on the field his tigerish tackling and never say die attitude were admired and respected by teammates supporters and opponents. The best forwards in Tipperary in the 50s 60s and 70s found in Sean, a player of real quality and only few enjoyed much success against him. His great popularity was shown by the large crowds attending his removal and funeral, and his football reputation by the number of old opponents who turned up to pay their respects.

Sincere sympathy is extended to his loving wife Alice and six adult children, his sister Mary McGrath, his brother Walty and his beloved grandchildren and his four special friends, Tossy Lawton, Jimmy Connolly, John Whyte and Frank Coffey, who travelled to many matches with him.

His equal will not be seen soon again. – (D.B.)

Unwanted Book donations
The 23rd Annual Tipperariana Book Fair will take place in Fethard Ballroom on Sunday, February 11, and Fethard Historical Society are offering a good home for unwanted books that anyone may have in their possession or those in the process of ‘de-cluttering’. The books will be sold at the book fair to support the work of the society in the community over the coming year.

The organisers have also now established a relationship with The National Council for the Blind of Ireland (NCBI) whereby any books that are not sold on the day (or that are not being carried over to the following year) are in turn donated to the NCBI who then sell them in their very well organised charity shops (over 90) all over Ireland. The organisers of the Fethard Book Fair are very happy with this development as it is very much a ‘win win’ arrangement for everyone. Contact details are as follows: bookfair@fethard.com or Tel: 087 9305232 or 087 9009722.

One of the interactive displays at Fethard Horse Country Experience – finalist in the 2018 All Ireland Community and Council Awards that will be announced at the Gala Awards Ceremony to be held in Croke Park on February 3.

Fethard Horse Country Experience is starting the New Year with wonderful news, they have made it to the finals of the 2018 All Ireland Community and Council Awards. The Awards presented by IPB Insurance and LAMA highlight and recognise communities and councils working together, bringing national recognition to projects and developments that may otherwise go unrecognised. Town, Borough, City and County Councillors across the island of Ireland nominate projects across 20 categories that demonstrate the work implemented through unique projects that enhance their local area for the good of the community.

Cathaoirleach of Carrick-on-Suir Municipal District, John Fahey nominated FHC Experience in the Best Tourism Initiative category sponsored by Fáilte Ireland. Manager, Shannon Forrest, states that it’s a fantastic achievement for a niche visitor attraction in its ninth month of operation to reach the Finals of a National Awards Event like this. Other nominees in this category are Munster Vales, Waterford Greenway and Seamus Heaney Homeplace.

The Gala Awards Ceremony will be held in Croke Park on February 3 with Marty Morrissey as host. We wish Fethard Horse Country Experience and the Fethard Business and Tourism CLG the very best of luck.

Newsletter still available
Copies of this year’s Fethard & Killusty Newsletter are still available for sale at the following local shops: Centra Supermarket (The Green), Annie’s Grocery (Burke Street); Daybreak Supermarket (Kerry Street), and Fethard Horse Country Experience (Town Hall, Main Street).

This year’s issue, costing €10, is receiving very good reviews from home and abroad, in particular for the interesting photographs and articles that span over 250 pages.

Book Fair Coming Soon
The New Year has turned and the organisers of the 23rd annual Tipperariana Book Fair are getting ready for their fair in Fethard Ballroom on Sunday, February 11, next.

The committee have now started to get the word out there by every means possible so people can put the date in their calendar for that Sunday. Much the same organisational formula is followed every year, because it has worked well and, as the Americans say, “If it ain’t broke, then don’t fix it.”

Book Donations
A very important aspect of the fair is whereby people make donations of books to the organisers – the Fethard Historical Society – and those books are then sold on the day and this is one of the main fundraising aspects of the fair. It is also a great way to find a good home for a collection of books that may have come into your position in recent times or if you may just want to do some ‘de-cluttering’.

The organisers have also now established a relationship with The National Council for the Blind of Ireland (NCBI) whereby any books that are not sold on the day (or that are not being carried over to the following year) are in turn donated to the NCBI who then sell them in their very well organised charity shops (over 90) all over Ireland. The organisers of the Fethard Book Fair are very happy with this development as it is very much a ‘win win’ arrangement for everyone.

Making Contact
If anyone would like to donate books or who would like to help us prepare for the fair or help-out on the day then our contact details are as follows: email bookfair@fethard.com text or phone 087 9305232 or 087 9009722.

Membership for the year is €10 for a family and €7 for an individual.

Forthright, intelligent, strong in life and faith, a great husband, father and son. Balanced, astute, with a clear mind, excelled at football for club, county and Munster. A great interest in nature, hunting, fishing, walking, known as ‘the strong wall’, the defender, awarded GAA player of the past.
Liked a modest bet on the horses, worked in Cork and Dublin, and for thirty-nine years on the railway in Fethard and Cahir. Had a trophy for the game of skittles.
Revered the mountain of Slievenamon, where he roamed as a youth. Played a large part, in his own way, in the Fethard community for quite a long time.
Passed away in his ninety-second year, May God rest his soul.

Fethard Historical Society thirty years old in 2018
Fethard Historical Society will have a busy 2018 as they celebrate their 30th Anniversary of the founding of the society on March 23, 1988.

First item of the year will be the ‘Tipperariana Book of the Year for 2017’ award will have to be announced and presented in late January and the Book Fair organised and carried through on Sunday, February 11.

After that, the focus will turn to celebrating the 30th anniversary of a community group that has worked tirelessly over those thirty years to ‘cherish their home place’ and also to gain national recognition for the unique walled town of Fethard. All indications and especially the support coming from national agencies, show that it has been highly successful in its endeavours.

Apart from a special event to honour the ‘thirtieth birthday’ the society are also planning a three-day trip to Wales, especially to the town and area of Abergavenny in south Wales. It is from there that William de Braose came with his Norman knights to wrestle control of this part of South Tipperary from the century old rulers, the O’Briens of Thomond. William, whose family still had lands in France, was by all accounts a nasty bit of stuff and in fact was known as the ‘Ogre of Abergavenny’ and for very good reason too. He in turn, and his own wife and family, came to very sad endings when he fell foul of his overlord, King John of England.

Hopefully, this trip will take place in early summer and anyone generally interested in joining the trip should email: history@fethard.com or text or phone 087 7548877.

General Election of 1918 changed everything
The General Election of December 14, 1918 changed everything in the political landscape in Ireland and its anniversary will have to be marked. The extension of the voting franchise to all men over 21 and all women over 30 (!) in the United Kingdom (of which Ireland was a part) meant a huge increase in the electorate. Sinn Féin won 73 of the 110 Irish seats, proceeded to set up an Irish Parliament which led to the War of Independence and finally independence for 26 of the 32 counties of Ireland.
