‘Such is life’ in Moyglass
Ned Kelly goes to the scaffold – (State Library of Victoria)
Many believe that the last utterance by Ned Kelly just before his hanging were three simple words; Such is life. Whether uttered with weary resignation or an acceptance of misfortune, the notion that the quote is attributed to Ned Kelly survives today. Ned Kelly was executed on November 11, 1880, at Old Melbourne Gaol, Australia, and buried there in a mass grave.

Ned Kelly was executed on November 11, 1880, at Old Melbourne Gaol, Australia, and buried there in a mass grave.

Ned Kelly was an Australian outlaw, whose father, John 'Red' Kelly was baptised in Moyglass Church on February 20, 1820. Living in his home in Clonbrogan, Moyglass, he was later found guilty of stealing two pigs at Cashel Court on January 7, 1841, and sentenced to 7 years transportation to Van Diemen's Land, the original name for the island of Tasmania in Australia.

Ned Kelly festival weekend in Moyglass
The Moyglass Ned Kelly festival weekend, from July 27 to July 28, brought the Village and surrounding areas to life with a variety of events. The festival was run to raise funds for three deserving charities: C-SAW, IWA (Tipperary Branch) and the Alzheimer Society of Ireland.
The Moyglass Ned Kelly festival weekend, from July 27 to July 28, brought the Village and surrounding areas to life with a variety of events. The festival was run to raise funds for three deserving charities: C-SAW, IWA (Tipperary Branch) and the Alzheimer Society of Ireland.

The events kicked off on Saturday evening when over fifty tractors took part in our annual ‘Tractor Run’. This was a sight to behold with a huge variety of vintage tractors, some of these machines were seventy-years old and had no problem taking to the road. It was also great to see the run supported by some modern tractors and this gave a great insight into the huge changes that have taken place over the intervening years.

The drivers with no cabs really enjoyed the lovely weather and were able to participate in their shirt sleeves, a welcome change. Ray Walsh led the run with his jeep and flashing lights to warn oncoming traffic. M.G. Ryan was the lead tractor with his Muirhill. The tractors left the village towards Fethard and turned left up Ballybough onto the Killenaule road. Grace Pollard and her family very kindly controlled the traffic at this cross. The run then proceeded into the town and turned right up the Cashel road. Maurice Blake controlled traffic at the Ballroom Cross. The run continued and turned right at Nora Casey’s cross and went through Liam O’Connor’s farm and returned to Moyglass via Farranaleen. Here everyone was treated to food in The Village Inn.

Denis Healy and Michael Boland sang a duet, to be followed by Sean Gleeson, Mary Boland Prendergast, James Gleeson, Kevin McGivern and Paddy Shelley.

The next event was the cycle run, which saw over forty cyclists leave Moyglass Community Hall in splendid sunshine. They continued into Fethard, Cloneen, Mullinahone and had a welcome pit stop in Ballingarry – thanks to Imelda Goldsboro for organising same. The cyclists returned to Moyglass via Killenaule and were treated to refreshments by Eileen Ryan and Liam Sweeney. Each cyclist received a unique Ned Kelly key ring and certificate.

This was followed by the 5K run/walk, with over 100 enthusiasts taking part. Some enjoyed the chat and the walk and the more serious contestants ran the route in around 25 minutes. Lorcan Lambe was participating in his first 5K and said afterwards, “It was tough but thoroughly enjoyable.” Key rings and certificates were presented to each participant followed by tea and refreshments enjoyed by all in the hall.

Jerilderie is where Ned Kelly produced his famous 8,300 word document. In this Jerilderie letter Ned Kelly states how his family were persecuted by a corrupt police force and basically forced him into the lifestyle for which he became famous. It also proves that Ned Kelly was highly intelligent to be able to write this letter, while on the run in a wild countryside.

The annual parish pilgrimage to the Holy Year Cross on Slievenamon takes place on Sunday August 11, with our usual 1pm start from the wooden cross by the Hill Wall.

The Holy Year Cross was erected by the people of the parish to commemorate the Marian Year and was blessed by the late Rev. Patrick O’Donnell, Archbishop of Brisbane, Australia, on August 15 1950. The cross was made of wood and was illuminated both on Christmas night and Easter time using a lamp powered by wet batteries. By 1974 the wood of the Holy Year Cross had to be replaced by a concrete structure.
