Congratulations to Fethard and Killusty angler Robert Hackett, who became 2018 All Ireland River juvenile fly-fishing champion on March 31, 2019 (postponed at end of last year), competing on the Clare river in Tuam County Galway. Congratulations also to Conor Cagney who was placed fourth in this competition, also representing Fethard and Killusty Anglers. Robert and Conor have both now qualified to represent Ireland, to fish the Youth World FlyFishing Championships in Czech Republic, in August 2019. The top four placings in this All Ireland Qualifier were: 1. Robert Hackett (Munster), 2. Sean Dowling (Leinster), 3. Luke O’Donoghue (Munster), 4. Conor Cagney (Munster).



The six anglers representing Ireland in the 2019 Juvenile World FlyFishing Championships in Czech Republic, are L to R: Robert Hackett, Sean Dowling, Conor Cagney, Chris Kelleher, Aaron McCann, and Luke O’ Donoghue.

This competition was fished on a catch and release basis with barbless hooks. Each trout is carefully measured and scored if over 18cm and then safely returned to the river. The fishing was tough on the day of the competition due to dirty water from the heavy rain the day before. The juveniles were challenged to use several methods within the flyfishing discipline to catch during these conditions. Munster also won the provincial title with seven anglers representing the province.

Thanks to those that helped with river bank cleaning on the 10th March on the river Clashawley, every little bit helps each year. Remember to please respect the landowner’s property when you go fishing on our wonderful club waters. Please pick up any litter you may find and bring it home, and always respect fencing and livestock whenever you are on the river. Fethard and Killusty Anglers club is only possible with the kind permission of the landowners so please respect this every time you venture out. Tight lines for 2019 as there has already been some good fishing due to the mild winter, so get out there and enjoy your time by the Anner and Clashawley. The Gods do not deduct from man’s/woman’s allotted span, the hours spent in flyfishing.

Bicentennial of Holy Trinity Parish Church
This is a very special year for Fethard as we celebrate the Bicentennial of Holy Trinity Parish Church.

In 1802, Fr. John Ryan came to Fethard and undertook the building of a new church within the walls of the town. The site for the new church was donated by Mr William Barton of Grove, who also donated one hundred guineas towards the building costs. The building work began on April 2, 1818, and Mr William Barton was invited to lay the foundation stone of the new church on April 26. The Church opened with the celebration of the first Mass on Trinity Sunday 1819. Although the church had officially opened on Trinity Sunday 1819, it was far from fully finished. When Fr. Michael Laffan succeeded Fr. Ryan as Parish Priest in 1823, he undertook the completion of Holy Trinity Church. The floor was paved with stone flags, the front gallery was erected, and the church was painted and decorated. Towards the end of the century, a number of parishioners became benefactors of the church.

A booklet will be produced later this year to commemorate the Bicentennial of Holy Trinity Parish Church and the organising committee are very interested in receiving any information or photographs that can be used in this publication.

In Fethard Ballroom’s heyday, in the 1970s, there was one popular man who always pulled the crowds, in fact, we’re told by the manager of The Country Club, as it was known then, that Joe Dolan packed in 1,400 supporters to the hall, a record attendance never to be broken. Those who were lucky to be present at that dance will remember, there was no room to dance, and hardly room to move.

Joe Dolan was loved throughout Ireland and broke many hearts when he died suddenly on December 26, 2007. His family and band members have continued to play music in memory of Joe and these touring shows popularity continues to grow wherever they appear.
