In Fethard Ballroom’s heyday back in the 1970s, Joe Dolan always pulled huge crowds. Joe’s brother, Ben Dolan, fondly remembers Paddy Lonergan, manager of The Country Club Ballroom, as it was known then, and the many late nights Joe and the band spent playing cards after their packed to capacity dances in Fethard. Next Saturday night promises to be a memorable night, also for the band, as the play again on the same stage again, as they did with Joe Dolan for many years. Echoes from Fethard’s ‘Ballroom of Romance’ will bounce once again to the beat of the late Joe Dolan.

The late 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 and their ‘Remembering Joe’ show continues to grow in popularity. Fethard Ballroom is again the place to be this Saturday night, May 4.

Fethard Ballroom welcomes back Joe Dolan’s family and his original band to take the stage again in Fethard on Saturday, May 4, at 8pm, when they proudly present ‘Remembering Joe’ The Joe Dolan Show -As it Was! Staring, Ben Dolan, Adrian Dolan, Ray Dolan, Sandra Dolan and Karen Carroll. Tickets at €25 are now on sale and can be purchased at Fethard Post Office and Marian’s Clonmel.

Proceeds of this event will go towards the Ballroom Committee’s maintenance of the roof, leading to many more years’ dancing in our very unique ‘Ballroom of Romance’.

Students visit Notre Dame Cathedral days before big fire

Students from Patrician Presentation Secondary School, Fethard, photographed outside Notre-Dame Cathedral, two days before a structure fire broke out beneath the roof of the Cathedral in Paris on April 15, 2019, causing extensive damage to the 12th century Gothic building.


A group of senior students from Patrician Presentation Secondary School in Fethard, along with staff members, visited Paris as part of their recent school trip to France. One of the sites visited while in Paris was the 856-year-old Notre Dame Cathedral on Île de la Cité, two days before a major fire engulfed the medieval cathedral on Monday, April 15, 2019.

Notre-Dame in Paris is one of France's most famous landmarks and French President, Emmanuel Macron, said that the cathedral would be restored and launched a fundraising campaign which brought in pledges of over €1 billion in the first week after the fire. It has been estimated that restoration could require twenty years or more to complete.

Fethard, one of five Ballybrilliant towns in Ireland

Fethard Town Hall and Horse Country Experience featuring in The Heritage Council’s booklet ‘Ballybrilliant: Heritage-led Regeneration in 5 Irish Towns’.


In a new colourful fifty-page booklet entitled, ‘Ballybrilliant: Heritage-led Regeneration in 5 Irish Towns’, Fethard has featured as one of five towns in Ireland chosen as case-studies of heritage-led regeneration. The imaginary name ‘Ballybrilliant’ was created to celebrate the efforts of local communities, often in the face of adversity, to promote heritage-led regeneration in their towns.

The ‘Ballybrilliant’ booklet was published by The Heritage Council as their contribution to ‘European Year of Culture 2018’. The five towns included are Fethard, Youghal, Westport, Tramore and Carlingford. The publication is both an acknowledgement of the actual real-life contribution that ‘heritage’ has in these five towns, and also looks at the great possibilities for the future, if done right. Westport, Co. Mayo, is the shining light as how a small town can become a major ‘tourism hot-spot’ through the aegis of good planning, focusing on preserving what is good and revamping or eliminating what is bad.

Talk in the Abymill on Tuesday, April 30
Liam Mannix of the Heritage Council is coming to the Abymill Theatre in Fethard, on Tuesday, April 30, at 8.30pm to give a talk and to have a discussion on the whole topic of ‘Urban regeneration in Irish Towns’. Anyone with an interest in life, business and recreation in Fethard is encouraged to come and hear what the Heritage Council has to say, and in turn, inform and enlighten the Heritage Council as to what Fethard people think are the real issues at ground level in a small Irish town.

Liam Mannix is Project Manager of the Irish Walled Towns Network (IWTN), also part of The Heritage Council. Fethard Historical Society, as local contact for the IWTN, are hosting the evening, to continue the discussion as to what is best for the town of Fethard in terms of business, tourism and most importantly ‘life in general’ for the people of the town and area.

Common Mistakes in Urban Planning
The title of Liam Mannix’s talk is ‘Common Mistakes in Urban Planning’, and having travelled widely in Ireland and Europe in his role as manager of Irish Walled Towns Network, he is very well placed to have seen what has worked and what is to be avoided.

Fethard, over recent decades, has seen all sides of ‘the good, the bad and the ugly’ but most would agree that Fethard is now in better shape than it was thirty or more years ago.

Apart from the physical appearance of the town there is one really big question, “Is Fethard now a better place to live for the young and old, than it was 30 years ago?” This question and other important issues can also be discussed on the night.

Tourism and Business
Tourism has been a ‘slow burner’ since the Historical Society first began to promote heritage and tourism at its founding in 1988. Since then we most acknowledge the many great achievements though the hard work of many organisations in the town. The list includes Town Wall renovations, the Valley Park and Footbridge, Abymill Theatre, the Ballroom, Convent Youth Centre, Fethard Playground and Park, sport facilities, river walks and more recently, the restoration of the Town Hall and the instillation of the Fethard Horse Country Experience. As we speak, the East Gate Park in Burke Street is taking shape and is exposing another hidden section of the Town Wall – one step further to completing ‘The Round the Wall Walk’, that may become a great new amenity in the town.

All invited and welcome
The Heritage Council is the national body that advises the Government on all things to do with the natural and man-made Heritage of Ireland, so this is a great opportunity for Fethard people to hear first-hand what the current thinking is on people, place and planning.

All are invited and more than welcome to come along to the Abymill Theatre at 8.30pm on Tuesday 30, to this free event. Refreshments served. For further information contact: history@fethard.com or Tel: 087 9305232

The Lenten Fire
Candle flickering gently in a tomb recess in the ruined chancel of Holy Trinity, (Church of Ireland) Fethard on Good Friday.
Candle flickering gently in a tomb recess in the ruined chancel of Holy Trinity, (Church of Ireland) Fethard on Good Friday.

We all know that strange things happen in graveyards – not least Protestant graveyards – and particularly around medieval churches at night. And so it was only a little strange for a local photographer to come upon a candle flickering gently in a tomb recess in the ruined chancel of Holy Trinity, (Church of Ireland) Fethard on Good Friday.

The chancel in Fethard is no longer in use and has been without a roof for some 200 years and so Church of Ireland services take place in the medieval nave. But the chancel was originally the holiest part of this former Roman Catholic church, blocked off (before the time of Henry VIII) by a wooden ‘rood screen’ and only accessible to the clergy for the purpose of performing the holy offices. As the photograph shows, someone in our own time has lit a candle and taken the trouble to place this candle within the thirteenth century tomb niche at the north side of the site of the medieval altar.

Might this candle be a reference to the mysterious ritual of the three seekers and the angel that celebrated the resurrection of Jesus Christ on Easter Day? Might this forgotten niche turn out to be an ‘Easter Sepulchre’ – the empty tomb into which the host was wrapped in cloth and ‘buried’ on Holy Thursday? Candles would have been lit and an unbroken vigil undertaken until the Lamb of God was revealed at the dawn service on Easter Day as proof of Christ’s sacrifice and rebirth.

Easter was the holiest time in the medieval calendar and the cult of the sepulchre is thought to have arrived in Ireland from the great Norman capital of Rouen by way of Salisbury in the last decade of the twelfth century. There is only one known Easter Sepulchre in Ireland and that is at St Multose’s (1190 A.D.) in the Norman town of Kinsale. But could this unassuming niche be another unknown treasure of the walled town?

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.
