Friday evening last, March 23, saw a large gathering of Fethard folk assemble in the Abymill Theatre to mark the thirtieth anniversary of the founding of the Fethard Historical Society that occurred on March 23, 1988.

The evening turned into a celebration of ‘all things Fethard’ and a very positive note was aired by all who participated in the event. Mary Hanrahan, one of the founding member, was MC for the evening and thanked everyone ‘in block’- so as to avoid omitting anyone - for all their help to the society, town and community, over the past 30 years.

Terry Cunningham, current chairperson, then gave a whistle stop tour - with the aid of over a hundred slides - of some the society’s activities of the over the past three decades. The audience were very impressed indeed with the sheer volume, scale and diversity of the works undertaken, and the chairperson did emphasise that there had been a lot of ‘people hours’ spent by society members over those years.

Clare Lee from the Planning section of Tipperary County Council spoke next and outlined very clearly the overall planning process, from national to local, with a special focus on Fethard. She assured the audience of the council’s commitment to enhancing the overall environment of the area and knowledge that Fethard was a special place that required specific treatment that would safeguard and enhance its unique medieval heritage.

Last to present on the evening was Alison Harvey from the Heritage Council of Ireland, the national body that informs Government policy in the whole heritage area throughout the country. Fethard Historical Society credits Alison with being one of the first people ‘of influence’ that championed Fethard’s cause and her work was instrumental in initiating the funding stream that enabled much conservation works on stabilising sections of the Town Wall.

Alison spoke in glowing terms of the achievements of the people and organisations of the town and how their combined efforts are looked on by the Heritage Council as somewhat of a template as to what can be achieved when everyone is ‘pulling in the same direction’.

Members of the original first committee of the Fethard Historical Society in 1988 that were present at the 30th Anniversary Celebrations in the Abymill Theatre on May 23. L to R: Joe Kenny, Mary Hanrahan, Joe Ryan, Gemma Burke (representing Denis Burke), Peter Grant, Marie O'Donnell and Vincent Doocey. Other original committee members not present were: Mary Healy (RIP), Diana Stokes (RIP), Michael O'Donnell, Christy Mullins, John Joe Keane and Jimmy O'Connor.

Presentations were then made to the founding members of the original committee from 1988. Two bouquets of flowers were then presented to current members, Mary Hanrahan and Marie O’Donnell, who were also members of the original committee.

The celebrations concluded upstairs in the Abymill where quite an elaborate banquet awaited and a great air of celebration - and indeed satisfaction - of ‘a job well done’ was evident throughout.

Munster Double for Fethard Girls U15 Rugby

Munster Champions – Fethard U15 Girls Rugby team completed the Munster Rugby double by winning the Munster Cup with a fine performance last Saturday, winning 26-7 over rivals Shannon RFC. Back L to R: Jason Flannery (coach), Marie Gayson (assistant coach), Shauna Maher, Niamh Flatley, Lia Coady, Ella Shelley, Orla Maher, Aoibhe Gayson, Niamh Doyle, Evelyn Gayson, Sophia O’Brien, Natasha McGarry, Aisling Morrissey, Hannah McCabe. Front L to R: Annica O’Connor, Clodagh Fanning, Karen Bennett, Kate Flannery, Orlaith Breen, Lucy Murphy, Eabha Fitzgerald, Nicole Vaughan and Polly Murphy (coach). In front with 'Munster Cup' is Lily Flannery.

A very historical moment was made on Saturday in Limerick when our Fethard U15 Girls Rugby team completed the Munster Rugby double by winning the Munster Cup beating rivals Shannon RFC, whom we also defeated in December in the Munster League final.

This amazing team of girls have worked well together all season and with a fine performance last Saturday, won 26-7. With two exciting tries from captain Kate Flannery who was outstanding throughout the game, keeping all in order and foiling the opposition to score twice during the match. Lucy Murphy, vice-captain who marshalled at scrum half, as well as tackling hard throughout, rucking and making huge ground also carrying the ball to assist the backs. Karen Bennett was yet again solid throughout in collecting ball and side stepping the opposition. Our forwards were tremendous in carrying ball and making ground and our second try was scored by incredible determination from Shauna Maher, tighthead prop with great strength. On the wings Niamh Flatley and Evelyn Gayson were there to stop the balls going wide and with great speed defended very well.

Our 2nd row Ella Shelley's quick thinking at the breakdown was instrumental to get the ball out wide to the wings. New to the squad Orla Maher showed great support. Out at Number 10, Aoibhe Gayson kicked solidly throughout the day as well as a vital tackler at times to keep the opposition in their own half. Niamh Doyle got stuck in and supported well in the second row. Our loosehead prop Sophia O’Brien yet again was great support in the forwards. Also, a huge asset to the squad is lock Natasha McGarry who caught fast balls from the ruck and carried extremely well throughout. The tackles made by Natasha in centre field were definitely vital as they could have been tries for the opposition.

Aisling Morrissey came on in the centre and was huge support to tackle extremely well in the second half. Hannah McCabe and Lia Coady are also invaluable members that put huge effort on the field and are to be commended for their great work. Out Full back Annica O’Connor had an amazing pair of hands that caught Shannon's high balls and took them on to sprint away down the track. Orlaith Breen and Clodagh Fanning came on in the second half and had a great pair of safe hands and supported the team very well.

Eabha Fitzgerald was fantastic in at Number 2 to keep the line in defence, but also strong support in attack as well as great for the lineouts who were caught by Nicole Vaughan at Number 8.  Nicole played out of her skin and made so much ground taking the ball on and narrowly denied scoring, with a near full length of the pitch run from turning over the oppositions ball.

Huge thanks to coaches Jason Flannery, Polly Murphy with assistant Marie Gayson for all the support throughout the season. This is a very supportive team of players and back room staff whom, along with the parents, have been incredible. Here's to continued fun in the future for these girls and if they keep progressing the future is very bright.

Special thanks to Michael Fogarty, Edel McMahon, Pat O’Donnell, Joe Griffiths, Thomas Murphy, Sam Bergerson, Matt Brown, Brian Scanlon, Liam Hayes, Paul Kavanagh and Tadgh Vaughan, who helped throughout the season. Huge thanks to Amanda Greensmith of Munster Rugby to make it all possible to organise the league and Cup competitions.
