Tipperary County Council is hosting a half-day workshop at the Town Hall, Fethard, on the morning of Monday, September 24, which will appeal to research institutions, public agencies and community or voluntary organisations and individuals. Those taking part will learn about community social enterprise and the ‘Interface’ project, which stands for ‘Innovation and Entrepreneurship for Fragile Communities in Europe’. They will also benefit from hearing the perspective of a community initiative and get an opportunity to participate in a facilitated workshop on ‘Fragile Communities’.

Workshop Programme
The workshop will commence with registration from 9.30am in The Tholsel, Town Hall, Fethard, by Angela Sheehan, Tipperary County Council. At 10am, Cllr. Louise McLoughlin, Cathaoirleach, Carrick-on-Suir Municipal District, will give her welcome address, followed by an overview to the ‘Interface’ project by Michael Moroney, Tipperary County Council.

Other speakers include Maurice Moloney, who will give a community initiative perspective on The Tholsel and Fethard Horse Country Experience. Seamus Hoyne, Limerick Institute of Technology, will speak on Community Driven Social Enterprise.

Following a break for tea and coffee at 11am, a workshop and discussion session will be facilitated by Tom O’Donnell, Learning Development & Training Ltd. to explore how the ‘Interface’ project will help to develop a community. Tom O’Donnell is a training and development specialist with more than 17 years’ experience. In the early part of his career his focus was on coaching, personal development, and training trainers, however, in recent years he has become very interested in how groups and teams work and how some outperform others and achieve results in demanding circumstances.

With a hard-fought challenge match against Waterford City, and although we came away second best at 10–14, there were plenty of positives to take for our first run out. Defence and discipline were excellent and tactical kicking by our half-back pairing had City in trouble for large parts of the game. All the backs put in a stellar performance, but the plaudits go to the severely out-sized pack who despite being at a massive weight disadvantage put in a massive defensive performance. Well done to all involved.

Training
Competitive games are only two weeks away so training for Minis continues Fridays at 6.45pm. Look forward to seeing you all on Friday. If you have any questions, please contact.

Registration Fees for 2018/19 Season
Registration Fees are now due: Adult Players €120; Juvenile Players €60 with a reduced fee of €30 for a second child and €20 for a third. Alternatively, a family of four or more can join for €110. Affiliate membership €40 (non-playing members who will also be eligible to get match tickets through club).

The Geoffrey Keating Story

Dr. Bernadette Cunningham photographed with a group that attended her very interesting talk on Geoffrey Keating at Tubrid Church on Sunday, September 16, organised by Fethard Historical Society

On Sunday, September 16, a trip to explore sites related to the Seathrún Céitinn/Geoffrey Keating story was a ‘pet’ day and the September sunshine drew a large number of participants.

The outing began in Moorestown where Dr. Bernadette Cunningham, Royal Irish Academy outlined what is known of Geoffrey Keating’s early life and his connection to the area. It has long been believed that he was born in the nearby townsland of Burgess around 1570 and the Keatings owned Moorestown until the 1650s, some ten years after his death. Tradition holds that Geoffrey was educated in the MacCraith bardic school in Burgess before going abroad to Bordeaux for his formal education as a Catholic priest. He returned to Ireland circa 1610 and became renowned as a preacher. His sermons sometimes riled the authorities of the time to such an extent that he had to go into hiding.

Today, the round tower house at Moorestown still dominates the landscape and the impressive bawn wall is largely intact as is the gatehouse. In such surroundings it is easy to imagine what life was like for the inhabitants of the castle long ago.

From Moorestown, the group travelled onto Cillín Chiarán in Tubrid, a little oratory or chancery church where it is believed Geoffrey Keating was buried. While the actual grave site is unknown, there is a plaque beside the doorway of this very simple building, erected in 1644, to commemorate his life. Inside the church, there is another monument to him, written in both Irish and English, which was put up in 1913.

Dr. Cunningham continued her narrative of Geoffrey’s life and work, gently debunking the myth that he had ended up taking refuge in a cave in the Glen of Aherlow while writing Foras Feasa ar Éirinn. This scholarly work obviously drew on a number of sources and contemporary manuscripts so he obviously had access to a well-stocked library, possibly that of the Butlers of Cahir.

While he was famous in his lifetime for two religious’ manuscripts, Trí bior-ghaoithe an bháis (moral reflections on how one should live and die) and Eochair sgiath an Aifrinn (a theology of the Mass), his importance today relates to Foras Feasa ar Éirinn. This manuscript, written by Geoffrey in beautiful flowing Irish, was a history of Ireland that also included all the myths, legends, stories and traditions that had been passed down through the centuries. Geoffrey translated it into Latin with a view to disseminating it in Europe.

As Fethard Historical Society member, John Cooney, remarked in his thanks to Dr. Cunningham for her wonderful talk, this was the first document that sought to define what it was to be Irish. It was copied in manuscript form many times in the 17th century and was to have a huge influence on the Gaelic Revival of the late 19th and early 20th century.

The tour ended with a leisurely exploration of the little church and graveyard.

Tim Desmond uncovers a story of archaeological theft and international intrigue and how one man became a suspect in a theft that continues to cause mystery and mischief.

In January 1990 a Sheela na Gig, a medieval stone carving featuring exposed female genitalia, was taken from the ruins of Kiltinan Church, near Fethard in County Tipperary.

A publicity campaign was organised to find the carving which was estimated to be worth millions and the story flashed around the world. A local archaeology enthusiast Jim O’Connor was questioned by Gardai about the theft. Jim maintains he was innocent and offered to carve a replica to replace the missing Sheela na gig.

Some time later, in the United States, an attempt was made by another Irish man to sell stolen carvings to the Burns Library at Boston College, an institution which hosts a large archive of Irish historical material. That case also received international attention and led to a sting by the FBI, with the assistance of the Garda Siochána to recover the stolen goods. But was the Kiltinan Sheela na Gig part of that haul? Tim Desmond follows the story of the Two Sheelas.

Articles invited for Annual Emigrant's Newsletter 2018
Work on the production of this year's Annual Emigrant's Newsletter has now commenced. We invite anyone interested in submitting articles or photographs for this year’s issue to contact Joe Kenny, Rocklow Road, Fethard, Tel: (052) 6131663 or by email: emigrantsnewsletter@gmail.com

Help is always needed gathering articles and photographs, indeed, one of the most time-consuming chores is trying to put captions to the photographs with correct names. Other ways people can help is interviewing, writing articles, typing or inviting others to write articles in good time for publication.

The first issue of the Fethard & Killusty Emigrants' Newsletter was published by the Legion of Mary in December 1959 and is dated 'Christmas 1960'. On checking the dates of the events and deaths featured in the newsletter we discovered that they all happened in 1959 so we concluded that the Newsletter was published in December 1959 and posted in January 1960. This 'first newsletter' was discovered in a drawer by Pat Shine, formerly from Crampscastle and now living in London. Today, over fifty years later, the newsletter has grown into a full colour 200-page production and is still posted free of charge to all our emigrants living throughout the world.
