Alice delighted with turnout for book launch

Alice Leahy, delighted with the turn-out at her book launch, photographed signing copies of her book 'The Stars are our only Warmth' in the Abymill Theatre, Fethard.

On Thursday night last, October 11, a very large crowd attended the Fethard launch of Alice Leahy’s new book 'The Stars are our only Warmth', co-authored by journalist Catherine Cleary. The large number of books brought by publisher Brenda Boyne, Sales Manager, O'Brien Press, didn’t underestimate the attendance or the queue that waited in line, patiently, as Alice personally signed each copy. As book launches go, this was quoted as one the best ever launches for book sales. A fitting tribute to Alice Leahy, her life, her work and her dedication to the lesser well-off people in our society.

Alice and her husband Charlie Best are no strangers to Fethard and enjoyed meeting their many friends again at the launch. The launch and reception, organised by Jimmy O’Sullivan, went flawlessly smooth, enhanced by the performance of Sinéad O’Donovan who sang beforehand. Co-author and journalist Catherine Cleary gave a very true description of the life Alice led on the streets on Dublin and how well she was known and appreciated by the homeless and less fortunate individuals on Dublin streets.

Radio presenter Fran Curry further delved into what makes Alice Leahy tick with a twenty-minute interview on stage that was very easy listening as Alice explained her many traits – both good and bad, funny and sad.

Fran Curry then had the honour of officially launching the book, which he did with extreme pride and admiration for a woman with a huge story to tell.

"Fethard instilled in me a sense of belonging and acceptance", Alice Leahy speaking at Abymill launch

There was a queue out the door as people arrived at the Abymill Theatre, Fethard last Thursday night, October 11, for the launch of Alice Leahy’s memoir The Stars Are Our Only Warmth.

The stage was set – a midnight blue backdrop echoing the colour of the door into the Alice Leahy trust – a door open to all, with a special welcome for those Alice defines as different. The people of Fethard afforded the warmest of welcomes to this much esteemed daughter of Annsgift. It was in every sense a homecoming as old friends revisited former days with Alice and new admirers lined up to get their books signed.

The evening began with a brief recital by the very talented young local soprano Sinéad O’Donovan. She delighted the audience with a trio of songs: When she loved me, I don’t know how to love him and The Derry Air (Danny Boy). Following a summer performing in New York, Sinéad is now back studying music in Cork.

Jimmy O’Sullivan, MC for the evening, then invited Alice Leahy and her guests onto the stage. Catherine Cleary, who co-authored the book with Alice, spoke first. She explained that it was not in fact her first visit to Fethard. As food critic for the Irish Times she came to review Dooks restaurant in June 2018 and gave them a rave review calling it ‘a new star in the Irish Food firmament’. Formerly a crime reporter, Catherine originally met Alice twenty years ago when their paths crossed in the course of her work. Then, as now, she was impressed by Alice’s boundless energy and her fearlessness in tackling the problems facing her clients.

Working on the memoir obviously entailed spending lots of time with Alice. She told how they walked through city-centre Dublin together visiting food kitchens and hostels with Alice meeting and greeting people along the way. It became apparent that Alice had created her own personal ‘village’ within the city, establishing a sense of connection that transcended all barriers. As she learned about Alice’s childhood in Annsgift and the strong women who influenced her, such as her mother Hannie and Mrs Olivia Hughes who established the Irish Country Markets in Fethard back in 1947, Catherine began to understand the source of Alice’s strength and resilience. She expressed her delight in bringing to completion the story of the little girl from Annsgift who grew up to be the voice of the marginalised.

Brenda Boyne, Sales Manager, O'Brien Press, spoke next thanking Jimmy O’Sullivan, Jasper and the Abymill team for organising the event so well and Fran Curry for agreeing to interview Alice. Michael O’Brien established O’Brien Press in 1974 while Alice Leahy set up Trust 1975 so it seemed most appropriate that they should publish the memoir. They were very privileged to work with Alice and Catherine on The Stars Are Our Only Warmth. This book is a social history as well as a wonderful insight into Alice’s childhood in Tipperary. “Alice has a very special way about her, a way of getting things done,” Brenda stated. She too told of travelling through Dublin city centre with Alice, this time to visit booksellers, and how along the way so many people just had to come over to say Hello. Needless to say, the booksellers also fell under her spell. They ended up, as one does, in the Palace bar (only a Tipperary pub would do for Alice) drinking ‘tea’ and putting the world to rights.

Brenda concluded by wishing Alice every success with her book and whatever she does in the future.

Jimmy O’Sullivan then welcomed Fran Curry, Tipp FM, who was to interview Alice as the final event of the evening. Fran began by saying that while he had tried to avoid cliché, he had no option but to revert to one in order to properly express how honoured he felt to be onstage with Alice. He described reading the book as “an incredible journey with an absolutely incredible woman”.

Surprisingly, it was Alice’s first time in the Abymill Theatre but she recalled, with evident pride, reciting The Old Woman of the Roads by Pádraic Colum onstage in the Town Hall.

The title of her memoir is taken from another poem, Last Night by Tony Gill, a homeless man who was well known to Alice, the final three lines of which are:

They pass by in their hundreds,
Not knowing that the pavement is our pillow
And the stars are our only warmth.

The interview flowed seamlessly, Fran’s deft questions serving as gentle prompts to the unfolding of an intriguing story of courage and selflessness. Alice spoke eloquently with the accomplished ease of one who has spent a lifetime advocating her particular cause. Her message was clear and concise- there is no quick fix solution: the homeless problem will not be fixed in a year or two, if ever. But we can start now, today, showing kindness and compassion, suspending judgement, offering practical help.

Alice spoke too about her family and the values passed down to her by her parents; a strong work ethic and a belief that you were as good as the next. Fethard was a very special place, there was a sense of belonging and an acceptance within the community of those who were different. That acceptance is, she feels, sadly lacking in our society today. Instead, we tend to focus on achieving success and judging everything on outcomes, ignoring the importance of the individual’s need for human contact.

Alice Leahy interviewed by Fran Curry, Tipp FM, at the launch of her book, ''The Stars are our only Warmth' in the Abymill Theatre, Fethard. co-authored by journalist Catherine Cleary, on Thursday, October 11, 2018.

On a positive note, Alice hopes that her book will show young people how far we have come, how much is possible. “Young people,” she stated, “are the future and Ireland is a wonderful country”.

Alice worked as a nurse and a midwife, volunteered with Simon in the slums in Benburb Street and then gave up her job to found Trust. It is not aligned to any political party or religious group and it doesn’t accept government money. The focus is on accepting people as they are and treating them as equal human beings. It’s not about trying to change people because, as Alice says, “You can’t change people unless they want to change”. These are the broken of our society, the fragile, the unwanted who could so easily disappear in plain view. Building relationships is what is important, in an accepting, non-judgemental way.

Alice has served as a Human Rights Commissioner and was Chairperson of the Sentence Review Group. She has received many awards in recognition of her lifetime commitment to working with the homeless including honorary fellowships form both the Royal College of Surgeons of Ireland and the Royal College of Physicians of Ireland, an honorary doctorate from University College Dublin and she was named Tipperary Person of the Year in 2004. However, Alice waves away acclaim, wearing her laurels lightly, with an obvious sense of humour that refuses to allow her to take herself too seriously.

She was totally in earnest, however, when she stated that the political system has to change if it is to be effective. There is a great danger of becoming complacent or indifferent. She commended Alan Kelly, TD, who was in the audience, because he was the first minister to bring together everyone involved in working with the homeless. She believes similar initiatives are needed today to tackle the issue. Above all, she said, people need to think ‘outside the box’.

Asked if she is religious Alice replied with a resounding No. But she is, she said, a woman of faith, with a belief in a higher power and she is constantly amazed at the wonderful way things work out, as evinced for her every day in the realising of her mission. She begins each day with a prayer God, today is the day you have made. I am grateful to be part of it. She also recommends taking time each day simply to be quiet and reflect.

Launching The Stars Are Our Only Warmth, Fran Curry said how immensely proud the people of Tipperary should be of Alice. “This book is so special it should be compulsory reading for every politician. There is so much to learn from it about real Christianity, about reaching out to those who are broken, with love and empathy, not judging them.”

Then it was time for Alice to meet more of her public and sign more books. The Abymill foyer rang with laughter and reminiscences as people enjoyed the refreshments supplied by McCarthy’s, another Fethard legend.

On Tuesday, October 2, the Royal Irish Academy hosted a lunch in their headquarters in Academy House, 19 Dawson Street, Dublin, to celebrate the recent collaboration between the Heritage Council and the Irish Historic Towns Atlas to make the Irish Historic Towns Atlas (IHTA) available online and accessible via HeritageMaps.ie.

The Royal Irish Academy invited along the Fethard Historical Society committee and all those who took part in the Transcribeathon in June, as part of the project to develop the Digital Atlas of Historic Fethard. It was a great honour to be invited but unfortunately, due to previous commitments, only a few were able to attend.

Sarah Gearty (Historic Irish Town Atlas) introduced the event as an opportunity to bring together people who work in and contribute to urban heritage in Ireland. She paid tribute to the work of Heritage Officers and local historical societies throughout the country. There followed short demonstrations by Pat Read (HeritageMaps.ie) and Jennifer Moore, (IHTA Online), showing how the collaboration between their two organisations works and can be accessed online.

Dr. Rachel Murphy, Fethard Historical Society, gave a presentation outlining their project to develop a Digital Atlas of Historic Fethard, one of the first in Ireland. She explained how the society involved volunteers from the local community in the Transcribeathon last June. The society also involved the Transition Year students from the Patrician Presentation Secondary school working under the guidance of their Art teacher, Ms Pat Looby to depict their favourite aspects of the town. The resultant drawings were reproduced in the Digital Atlas of Historic Fethard. Rachel explained that further layers of information may be added in the future. She concluded with a demonstration of how the digital atlas works online allowing the viewer to access information about the various features of the town, the history of the buildings and the students’ artwork.

Howard Clarke (Irish Historic Towns Atlas, Royal Irish Academy) spoke of how the historic atlases will be of use not only to students of history, geography and archaeology but also to architects, town planners and conservationists. He pointed out that while five hundred such atlases exist across Europe, Ireland in fact is leading the way with the quality and standard of atlas produced.

Michael Parsons (Chairperson, Heritage Council) commended the partnership and collaboration between the Royal Irish Academy and the Heritage Council which has made the twenty-three Irish Historic Town Atlases available on a digital platform. He spoke of the shared common purpose to nurture a sense of belonging and to develop a sense of place.

In conclusion, Mary Canning (Vice-President, Royal Irish Academy) stated the Academy’s commitment to share the resources and scholarship with the wider community and the need to spread that message further afield. She also mentioned having visited Fethard a few years ago and how having a digital map of the historic town would have really enhanced her visit. A return trip is envisaged with the digital map now available!

The visit to the Royal Academy also afforded the opportunity to peruse their wonderful library with its unique manuscript and printed collections. The exhibits currently on display include The Psalter of St. Colum Cille (Columba), known as the Cathach, dated c. A.D. 560-600, and Lebor na hUidhre (the Book of the Dun Cow), the oldest extant manuscript completely in Irish.

Of interest to the Fethard contingent was the collection includes a brief introduction to Geoffrey Keating’s Foras Feasa ar Éirinn and its textual transmission over three centuries.

‘Ireland after the Rising 1916-1918’
Fethard Historical Society will host a lecture, ‘Ireland after the Rising 1916-1918’ by Dr. Noreen Higgins McHugh at 8 pm in the ICA Hall, Rocklow Road, on Thursday, October 18. Admission is €4. Dr. Higgins McHugh is a Tipperary historian who has previously lectured for the society on such topics as genealogy and the Tithe Wars.


Thomas Ashe photographed between guards in Kilmainham Gaol, Dublin, after the 1916 Rising – (An Phoblacht, July 3, 2017 edition)

In this lecture she will look at what was happening in Ireland after the 1916 Rising: the execution of the leaders, national and international reaction to those executions, the Royal Commission of Enquiry, the Home Rule Scheme, the trial of Roger Casement, the deportations to internment camps in Britain with emphasis on life in Frongoch Interment Camp in Wales. Noreen will also speak about the Prisoners’ Aid Association, the National Aid Association, the death of Thomas Ashe and the rise of Sinn Féin culminating with their success in the General Election of December 2018.

She intends to talk too about January 1919 on the night as it will be relevant, considering we are nearly at the end of 2018 and she herself is involved in a conference relating to the 100th anniversary of the Soloheadbeg ambush in January 1919, which is traditionally the start of the War of Independence.

All are welcome to what promises to be a very interesting insight into the aftermath of the 1916 Rising and what was happening in Ireland one hundred years ago.

The next meeting to organise the St. Patrick’s Place Reunion later in the year will be held in the Tirry Community Centre, Barrack Street, on Tuesday night, September 25, at 8.30pm. All interested in getting involved are more than welcome to come along.

The committee are very pleased with the encouragement and interest shown so far and are now interested in gathering any photographs relating to St. Patrick’s Place people and events from when the first houses were built in 1941 to the present.

We have also received correspondence and photographs from overseas and would welcome any stories or information that relate to events, games, characters and families that lived in any of the houses for any period. You can also send photographs or information by Email: reunion@fethard.com

This photograph received from Sheila Dawson, Gloucester, England, shows herself (behind) and a young girl having a ride on a pony outside her Grandfather Stephen Dwyer's house in St Patricks Place.

Meetings will continue to be held on the last Tuesday of every month in the Tirry Community Centre and you can always help in many ways by coming along, even if you’re not from St. Patrick’s Place! As most Fethard people will have experienced a variety of situations and contact with the people from ‘The Ring’!

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.

Fethard Faces and Places from the Past

The Facebook page is used for sharing old Fethard photographs with other members of the group and is open to all interested in joining.
