Fethard avoids 'Emma' and enjoys the snow

Fethard Town Wall in a beautiful snow setting on Friday, March 2


Listening to the continuous red-alert updates on Thursday last, Fethard indeed was well-prepared for the oncoming clash between the 'beast from the east' and the lovely 'Storm Emma'. At the operative red-alert time of 3pm on Thursday we listened to reports on how the expected storm was progressing from the south . . . and waited patiently.

By 6pm, with still no significant wind or snow, we felt that we may have escaped by some mysterious unexpected tactic by Storm Emma as she leaped over Slievenamon, Killusty and Fethard and headed north in a hurry. By 9pm we were regretting all our cancelled plans to go out, as just wisps of snow blew gently around . . . still no storm.

So it continued as 'Gentle Emma' continued to bathe us in her white dust gathered from Siberia for the next few hours. This was no ordinary snow. Not like our usual fall of snow that melts three seconds after landing. This was different . . . floating around, looking for the perfect landing spot to build a 'drift'. Back listening to weather reports from other blustery places, we could happily relax watching our light white breeze in fading light.

Morning arrived, one of the brightest for years, to the fluttering of birds trying to find a hard place to land as trees, branches, roofs, and ground were covered in this very attractive soft snow. 'Gentle Emma' had performed well and distributed her Siberian 'guests' everywhere, without the dreaded gusts.

March 1, 2018, will be remembered for many years to come and children will also recall building the biggest snowmen and other works of art, maybe never again to be surpassed. Now that the day has passed, and the memories slowly melt away, we can thank all those good people who visited neighbours, cleared pathways and roads, and helped make the meeting of Emma and The Beast, a pleasant experience, at least for most of us in Fethard.

Junk Kouture semi-final
The semi-final of Junk Kouture will be held this Friday, March 9, in Limerick Concert Hall at the University of Limerick. Junk Kouture is an all-Ireland competition where students make wearable fashion/art from recycled trash, anything that's ready for the bin. This year over 1,500 outfits were entered for the competition, and eighty were chosen for each region, North, South, East West and Dublin. Two outfits from Patrician Presentation were chosen for the semi- finals in Limerick.

Modelling 'Age of Aquarius' is Maggie Fitzgerald and working with Maggie to create this outfit was Rachel Prout. This outfit was created entirely from plastic drinks bottles. The second outfit to reach the semi-final was 'Libertas', and modelling this outfit is Daragh Fenlon. Daragh's team also included Caoimhe O'Meara and Emily Fitzgerald. 'Libertas' is made using recycled paper card and discarded puzzles. Twenty outfits will be chosen on Friday night in Limerick to go forward to the Final which will be held in the Three Arena, Dublin, on April 19.

We wish both Daragh and Maggie every success on the night. We are also very grateful to Ms Looby for the work she has put into this competition here in the school over the years.

Patrician Presentation wishes to acknowledge also the valuable advice and support of Mrs Sue-Ann O'Donnell, our local Enterprise Officer.

Fethard Reach two National Finals (so far) in Volleyball in 2018
Friday, January 12, saw two Fethard U16 teams travel to UCD for the National Cadette Volleyball Finals. Our boys came through to the finals without a loss having faced teams from significantly larger schools such as Trinity Comprehensive (Ballymun), Colaiste de H'Ide (Tallaght), Grange College (Donaghmede), Mountrath Community School and Drumshambo Vocational School (Leitrim), none of whose numbers are below 600 pupils.

The Fethard girls, meanwhile, shook off a rocky start against Holy Family S.S. from Newbridge and St. Mary's of Naas, going on to beat St. Raphaels of Loughrea and Colaiste Mhuire of Ennis, to secure their semi-final spot against St. Raphael's of Loughrea, whom our girls dispatched in two straight sets at Streete venue in Westmeath, where our boys also secured their finals place with a 2-1 win over Drumshanbo.

With a 6.15am start from Fethard, bleary eyes boarded the team bus to finals but, assured that they had a supporters' bus in tow, spirits were high. Both Fethard teams were clearly marked as underdogs by others as we found ourselves against St. Brigid's College, Loughrea, for the boys, who had teams in three finals that day and won all three, and against Holy Family S.S., Newbridge, for the girls (who had beaten Fethard comprehensively in Round 1). Also, a large proportion of both Fethard teams will still be underage for this category next year.

First up were the girls, on court for 11am. The girls got off to a great start and settled down very quickly. Newbridge were slower to get started but it wasn't long before they started to develop a lead. The girls struggled to stay within reach of Newbridge who had a very strong service. Newbridge took the first set, which meant the girls had to give their absolute best for the second set which of course they did. Newbridge again proved too strong for the second set, with excellent service and strong hitting. The girls had some impressive rallies and never once gave up. They continued to encourage one another right to the end but unfortunately it was Newbridge's day. This All Ireland final will certainly stand to this young team as the majority of them will play at cadet level again next year. As a school we are extremely proud of their great achievement. Well done to their coach Ms Walsh, and also to the huge support given on the day by both their fellow students and parents alike.

The boys, following a long wait, faced St. Brigid's at 2pm. We had a very shaky start and found ourselves 9 points down very quickly. Rallying, Fethard managed to reduce the deficit to 4 before the westerners powered on to secure the first set 25-13. In the second set the Fethard Boys settled well and, with some probing attacks and vital rallies, took the second set 25 - 18. The tiebreaker was nail-biting for both sides with the lead switching in the early stages. Fethard led at the change 13-9 but points and the lead were traded many times over the course of the final set. In the end, the Brigid's team slowly increased their attack after the sides changed court ends and held on to win narrowly 25-18. The Patrician Presentation boys' team, their parents and all supporters of the school are very proud of their silver All-Ireland medals. Congratulations also to their coach Mr McGree.

We are very grateful to have TÚS and their great program working for the benefit of all the community. Positions are suitable for both males and females.

Friends of Slievenamon
Four months have passed since our public meeting was held on Thursday, November 2, when upward of seventy concerned local citizens and other mountain users convened in Killurney Hall to discuss problems with access to our beloved Slievenamon. The meeting was in response to concerns of proposed attempts to limit access to the mountain, especially in more recent months.

The meeting was in response to concerns of proposed attempts to limit access to the mountain, especially in more recent months.

Those present will recall that a committee (Friends of Slievenamon) was formed on the night consisting of eight people who have taken on various tasks in relation to access and ownership. We have since had further meetings and members have been engaged in looking into the complicated background issues involved and have been liaising with relevant bodies such as Coillte, Mountaineering Ireland and the Land Registry. We have also been trying to arrange a meeting with the owner, but so far without success.

At our next committee meeting will be planning to arrange a further public gathering to bring people up to date with our findings and to pool knowledge: we will circulate the date and time in due course. In the meantime, it would be helpful if our committee could be updated with any news of recent difficulties with access. Please email such information to EMAIL.

Yours faithfully, Friends of Slievenamon committee.

Don't drink the water!

Irish Water have issued a ‘Do Not Drink’ warning for the Fethard Public Water supply. They also warn that boiling the water, or using a domestic water filter, will NOT make it suitable to drink.

The warning was issued on Monday, March 5, shortly after it emerged that a river in Mullinahone may be contaminated with kerosene. Irish Water say that, “Due to hydrocarbon contamination of the source supplying the Fethard Public Water Supply, Irish Water and Tipperary County Council, in consultation with the HSE, have issued a Do Not Drink notice for customers supplied by this scheme."

Areas affected include Fethard, Killenaule, Gortnahoe, Ballysloe, Ballynonty, Moyglass, Mullinahone, Drangan, Glengoole, Cloneen, Ballinure, Killusty and surrounding areas. This water should not be used for: drinking, drinks made with water, food preparation, washing or cooking of food, brushing of teeth, or making of ice. In particular, pregnant women should not drink this water.

This water should not be used for making up infant formula for bottled fed infants. An alternative source of water should be used. Bottled water can also be used to make up infant formula. All bottled water, with the exception of natural mineral water, is regulated to the same standard as drinking water.

It is best not to use bottled water labelled as ‘Natural Mineral Water’ as it can have high levels of sodium (salt) and other minerals, although it rarely does. ‘Natural Mineral Water’ can be used if no other water is available, for as short a time as possible, as it is important to keep babies hydrated. If bottled water is used to make up infant formula it should be boiled once (rolling boil for 1 minute), and cooled in the normal way.

The water can be used for personal hygiene, bathing, flushing toilets, laundry and washing of utensils, however, if you are experiencing skin irritation you may wish to avoid using water for showering or bathing or washing clothes. Domestic water filters will not render water safe to drink. Caution should be taken when bathing children to ensure that they do not swallow the bathing water. Discard ice cubes in fridges and freezers and filtered water in fridges. Please note that boiling the water will not be sufficient to make it suitable to drink.

Irish Water MD, Jerry Grant, formerly from Killerk, Fethard, has issued these warnings in the interest of people's safety.

Water tankers will be provided to assist customers in these areas. Details of the locations of these tankers will be available on the Service and Supply Section of the Irish Water website at www.water.ie/water-supply/supply-and-service-update/

Irish Water is working with Tipperary County Council, the HSE and other relevant bodies to resolve this issue as quickly as possible. Our priority at this time is to safeguard public drinking water supplies and public health. Production at the plant has ceased until the issue has been resolved and it may be a number of days before a full supply is restored. We will continue to keep the public informed on the progress of this work.
Irish Water and Tipperary County Council apologise for the inconvenience caused as a result of this incident and wish to assure customers that we are making every effort to restore supply as quickly as possible once it is safe to do so. Should customers have any concerns or queries, they should contact Irish Water’s 24/7 customer care line at 1850 278 278.

Fethard and Killusty Anglers AGM
Fethard and Killusty Anglers AGM was held on Friday, February 23, at 8pm in the Tirry Community Centre in Fethard. There was a good turn out to the AGM and a lot of material covered from an eventful 2017 season. We were delighted to have Simon Molloy (CES) ably assisted by his brother Michael and his friend Finbarr, who gave us an excellent and informative presentation on stream enhancement. Simon's visual presentation highlighted works carried out on other rivers to enhance the aquatic life and spawning redds for salmon and trout which in turn has a positive effect on all wildlife in and around the river. Simon is passionate about his work in improving spawning streams while working in conjunction with Inland Fisheries Ireland (IFI), and National Parks and Wildlife trust, which is all part of the National Angling Strategic Development Plan.

The National Strategic Development Plan has allocated approx. €32K of a grant to carry out stream enhancement works on the river Anner in the worst affected areas of this beautiful river. Simon has already dedicated a lot of his time in identifying the worse effected areas where there is siltation due to trees in the river, and overgrowing the river, causing a tunnelling effect, which stops any light onto the stream bed and kills any growth of Ranunculus and invertebrate habitat. There is a lot of analysis to be performed before any monies are granted, including a habitat report on the Anner including pearl mussel survey, ecologists report, electrofishing, and identification of worse effected areas from those submitted. Past projects on similar sized rivers have given staggering results with increase in fish stocks with typical increases of up to 600% (electrofishing comparison). We wish Simon and his team every success with this for the future.

The officers elected at this year’s AGM were Chairman; Colm Hackett, Secretary; Seán Maher and Treasurer; Albert Adcock. Tom Fogarty, our chairman of over 20 year’s service stepped down this year and handed the baton on to another enthusiastic Fethard man. We wish Tom all the best in his semi-retirement from club duties, but he will always be there to give us all a bit of common sense and give Colm a kick in the backside when needed. Sunday 11th March is set for bank cleaning with all to meet at Thorny Bridge at 10.30am, please support this if you can as every pair of hands makes a big difference.

The annual club competition date is set for Sunday, April 8, meeting at Thorny bridge at 10am. If you are interested in joining our club please contact Colm Hackett on 086 8397868 or Seán Maher on 085 7050580 for membership cards (Seniors €25, Juniors €10, OAPs Free) or come along to our bank cleaning or competition to meet some of us. The new season starts on March 17, and new members are always welcome, and we encourage you to try this fantastic hobby, it’s a great way to clear the head and get out in the fresh air. Our club members will do their very best to show you how to get started or teach you new methods you may not have tried yet. The Gods do not deduct from mans allotted span, the hours spent in fly-fishing. Tight lines to all for 2018.

Fethard’s Senior Citizens’ March meeting Ccancelled
In the interest of safety Fethard’s Senior Citizens’ Club’s March meeting on Tuesday, March 6, is CANCELLED.
Next meeting is scheduled for Tuesday, April 3. The weather should be milder by then allowing our annual Easter outing. “Watch this space” for further information.

Snow slow coming and snow slow leaving!

Fethard survived the last few days battering by the 'Beast from the East' by staying indoors and staying safe as recommended. Now that the worst is over we can come back on the streets and navigate on our own terms, also with extreme care.

Many of our elderly will still find it impossible and unsafe to stir outside so it is important that those that can, will give them a call to check if they may need supplies or medication etc.

Amoris meeting this Thursday cancelled
Due to weather conditions, the Amoris meeting for the Fethard Deanery on Thursday, March 1, at Fethard Convent Community Hall, has been cancelled. The series of meetings will now commence on Thursday, March 8, at 7.30pm.

Voting Instructions
Voting in this year’s Bank of Ireland Junk Kouture competition is going to be a little different. We have some exciting changes coming your way! There will be 3 voting periods this year: The Lifeline, the Regional, and the Grand Final. Each voting period will last 5 days and will take place over the following dates:

  • Lifeline Vote: 12-16 February
  • Regional Vote: 19-23 February
  • Grand Final Vote: 1-5 April

 Anybody can vote! You don’t have to be entering the competition or know someone who is. Voting will take place at:  https://app.junkkouture.com/ Each day during a voting period you will be able to vote for any design once (there is no cap on how many design you can vote for in a day, but only 1 vote per design).

At the end of each voting period, there will be a Super Friday vote: Throughout the week you can complete activities to get extra votes, which will add up over the voting week to be used on Friday. At the end of the week, you can put the total number of votes towards ONE outfit. You’ll need to choose carefully- there’s no going back after you’ve spent your Super Friday votes! You can still give your regular daily votes to other designs on Super Friday.

There are a few different ways you can get Super Friday votes. You can complete any, all, or none! Each day that you vote for even 1 outfit gives you 1 Super Friday vote. Each day you can also share any outfit on Facebook for an extra vote (you can share as many as outfits as you’d like, but you will only get 1 Super Friday vote per day that you share). There will also be social media accounts that you can follow which will give you 5 Super Friday votes each.

In each voting period, you can give 1 design a maximum of 25 Super Friday votes and 5 standard votes for a total of 30 possible votes. Designs that you do not choose to allocate your Super Friday votes to can still get up to 5 regular votes from each voter throughout the week!

Would any of our hurling fans have any information on this hurling team photo, that I presume was a Tipperary team from the jerseys. The only helmets used in those days were bandages and caps as can be seen from the bloodied one on the player 3rd left in front. The hurleys also look the worst for wear . . . maybe they badly needed an active Tipperary Supporters Club to raise funds. Yet they won many All-Irelands!
