The 23rd annual Tipperariana Book Fair takes place in the Fethard Ballroom this coming Sunday, February 11, from 2pm to 6pm in the afternoon.

What started out as an experiment back in 1996 has become the biggest fair of its kind in the country, North or South. This year there will be up to forty book stalls present with dealers of antiquarian and second-hand books coming from all over Ireland. Irish people always have a special interest in books about Ireland or about their native place and the dealers make sure to bring all their Tipperary and Munster books with them to the Fethard Fair.

Most of the books on the Antiquarian book stalls sell from between €10 and €40, but you can also part with five hundred euro for the odd very rare book should you really want to and add to your library. However, some dealers stock modern paperbacks and these sell for modest prices. Also, the organisers, Fethard Historical Society will have their own stall with thousands of excellent books donated by the public to sell for very small money.

The Society also receive 'book collections', containing rare books from well-wishers, which are then sold on at the fair. As well as generating income for the society this 'clearing house' function of the fair means that wanted books end up finding a good home on the day. Otherwise they may just be dumped in a skip as people may not be aware that a particular book is 'special' to someone else.

As usual the Café will operate on the day and the piano player will return to sooth the browsing masses from his perch on the stage. The entrance fee is still €2, with accompanied children going free. This means a family can have a good day out and go home with a bag of books for €10 if they so wish, and some will probably end up having tea and cakes as well!

Should anyone wish to donate books, they can be brought to the Ballroom on Friday, February 9, between 8pm and 11pm, or on Saturday, February 10, from 11am to 4pm. Should someone be unable to bring books to Fethard then arrangements can be made to collect them. Contact can be made with the organisers by texting or phoning 087 9305232 and 087 9009722, or by email: bookfair@fethard.com Further informatiom also available on website www.tipperariana.com

Fethard girls' rugby had a busy weekend with matches in Fethard on both Saturday and Sunday. The Fethard RFC Youth Girls were first up on Saturday in the Community Field, where two teams from Ennis travelled in large numbers with maximum subs for the girls first round of the Munster Cups.

Our U18s were victorious in their first round of the Cup beating Ennis, with great defence to keep a clean sheet and score numerous tries to put 47 points on the scoreboard. This team fresh from their Munster League final put up a solid performance, and were led by Claire Bennett ably assisted by Dorothy Wall, Jenifer Fogarty, Kate Gayson Molloy, Orla O'Donnell, Therese Ryan, Ciara Morrissey, Isobel Kennedy, Aoife Hayes, Faye Dowling, Matilda Magner, Lauren Dooley and newcomers Niamh Harrington, with Thurles guest players of Amy McGrath and Molly Williams along with Bantry's guest of Andrea Stocks. A super bunch of girls with great team work to keep the positive progression of this great team who never give up.

Our Fethard Girls U15s put up a tough performance to come away victorious 39-12 against a strong Ennis team. Led by out-half Kate Flannery, the Fethard girls worked well together and with the opening try from Aoibhe Gayson Molloy second centre who, along with Kate Flannery, scored twice each and also adding to the scoreboard were Lucy Murphy scrum half and Annica O'Connor fast left winger. Aoibhe Gayson Molloy also converted three of the tries and added a penalty. Karen Bennett, inside centre was constant support with safe hands and Evelyn Gayson Molloy a strong right wing. Nicole Vaughan marshalled at No 8, ably assisted by forward Shauna Maher, who, with Niamh Flatley, were strong tackling along with Sophia O'Brien. Second row of Ella Shelley and Orla Maher were strong throughout. Full back Orlaith Breen was strong in defence and supported Aisling Morrissey and newcomer Hannah McCabe who are great assets to complete this team who on their previous match won the Munster U15 League in Thomond Park before Christmas.

Sisters Patricia Croy and Catherine Ellis of Marysville, Ohio, USA, who recently visited Fethard retracing their family connections in the area. Their mother Margaret Power, originally from Tullicussane, Drangan, worked in the Castle Inn in Fethard before she emigrated to America c.1911.

Among the many visitors to the Fethard Horse Country Experience on Culture Night were sisters Patricia Croy and Catherine Ellis of Marysville, Ohio, USA. They were visiting Fethard as part of a trip retracing family connections in the area. They related that their mother Margaret Power, originally from Tullicussane, Drangan, worked in the Castle Inn in Fethard before she emigrated to America c. 1911.  She was only about twenty when she left Ireland accompanied by her sixteen-year old brother John. They settled in Ohio where Margaret met and married Patrick McEvoy from Daingean, Co. Offaly.
Margaret's brother John Power, also known as Jack, returned from America a short time later to his native Drangan and married a local girl Cathy Russell. He subsequently served in the Free State Army.
Patricia married Dick Croy, a mailman, who had served in the American Navy. Together they set up home in nearby, raised a family, and opened a up a fishing bait store which they ran for fifty years. Upon retirement they sold the store to a banking corporation. The new bank which now stands there has presented Patricia with her own private parking space for life in honour of her previous occupancy of the site.

Catherine married Leroy Ellis, a local farmer who served with the American army in England and France during the Second world war. Catharine herself worked as Clerk of the Courthouse for forty-five years. She served on the Ohio Civil Rights Commission and was part of the group that was instrumental in encouraging Honda to set up their manufacturing plant in Marysville, a facility that brought major employment to the town and the surrounding area.

The two sisters were delighted to be back in Fethard revisiting the local sites and very much enjoyed their tour of the FHC Experience. They were particularly impressed with the introductory audio- visual which gives such a wonderful overview of the architectural and archaeological treasures of Fethard and the environs.

Looking back through our archieves we have the opportunity to publish interesting items that many of our readers will recall. One of these refer to the wonderful work of Fethard Legion of Mary in 1968, when they reached out to the many emigrants who had to leave Fethard for work in England. Their notes from 1968 states:

"The highlight of the (Legion) year was the first re-union of Fethard and Killusty people in England organised by the Praesidium. This was held on May 3, in Knights of St. Colombas Club, Landsdowne Road, Holland Park, London, W.11. This function was attended by 160 people from Fethard and Killusty. From every point of view it was an outstanding success and a night to remember. Many old friendships were renewed, former school pals met again, some after a lapse of 30 years. The general opinion of those present was that it should be made an annual event. This has been decided and arrangements have been made to hold the 1969 re-union on Friday, May 2, 1969, in the Knights of St. Colombas Club, 11 Landsdowne Road, Holland Park. We regret if anyone didn't receive invitations to the re-union. we rely on you to keep us up to date with any changes in address."

Legion of Mary

The number of active members in the parish in 1968 were: eight seniors, twenty-two intermediates, and thirty juniors. Two members went on the Apostalate (a form of evangelistic work), one to England and the other to Rome.

Today, the Legion of Mary is still active in Fethard & Killusty Parish, with nine senior members. Weekly meetings are held on Monday evenings in the Augustinian House, Fethard. New members are always welcome. Contact the Augustinian Abbey for further details at Tel: (052) 6131273.

The Annual General Meeting of the Killusty Pony Show will take place on Tuesday night, February 13, at 7 30pm in the Fr. Tirry Community Centre, Barrack Street, Fethard. All are welcome, and we would greatly appreciate any new members willing to get involved or help out.

Fethard Historical Society - 30 years old

Derived from, a love of native place,
Founded, embracing tradition and folklore,
Logging, ancient monuments, trails and sites,
Attending lectures, meetings, reviewing rites,
Saw, the restoration of parts of the town wall.

Not forgetting Doheny of Brookhill,
Traced from Norman and Friary, notes,
Visitations to Kilkenny and other places,
Culminating in the Town Hall, Equine World.

To all concerned, take a bow, well done,
Fethard has rose, from dereliction to grandeur,
Happy Anniversary, long may it continue on.

Night Club for Fethard (Nationalist July 17, 1982)

The 'Big Apple' night club in Fethard is one of the newest night spots to be opened in Tipperary for many years. From Friday, July 23, 1982, the whole scene of the former Country Club ballroom will change from the sounds of the ballroom days to flashing lights and disco music. 

The management of the Country Club are bringing the club style of entertainment to Fethard - £30,000 worth of psychedelic lighting is being installed by Michael Foley, Lighting Contractor, Dublin. Many DJs from around the country will appear at the 'Big Apple' playing all the latest records in the Irish and British charts.

The management of the club appeal to all patrons to dress properly, and those wearing denims, leather jackets or any other garments that would take from the good name of the Club will not be admitted. For the present the Club will be held on Friday nights, but they hope to have Sunday night discos as well.

A group of young Fethard boys photographed at a Judo Exhibition held in Fethard Ballroom in September 1982 with a view to forming a local club. The club was formed one month later, October 9, 1982, by Michael O’Meara and Johnny Sheehan, both from St. Patrick’s Place, Fethard, and achieved considerable success at all levels over the following years.
