Friday, November 1, All Saints Day – on the eve of All Souls – a gathering of sixty people assembled in the Abymill Theatre to join in the celebration of Mass for all deceased members of the Fethard Players, Musical Society, Choir Group, or indeed anyone whom had been on stage or involved in any way with these societies throughout the years.

It was a poignant yet memorable occasion. A sweet sadness, as chairperson of the Fethard Players, Rita Kenny, welcomed all. Fr. Iggy O’Donovan OSA of the nearby Augustinian Abbey was the celebrant, and spoke briefly on the long tradition in our walled town of Fethard, of theatre and the love and legacy these performers gave us since the Tirry Players, previously named the Sodality Players, started out in 1913.

Mia Tracy of the Fethard Players read a beautiful piece by Fr. Brendan Hoban, entitled ‘Remember Me’, and the prayers of the faithful were individually expressed by Michael McCarthy, Gerry Fogarty and Niamh Hayes, remembering particularly Anne Connolly and Percy O’Flynn the two most recent deaths in the Fethard Players. Both, all their lives, had tirelessly and unselfishly devoted their immense talent to plays and musicals, and were truly and inspiration to all.

Marian Gilpin, who organised the evening, read a reflection after Communion taken from John O’Donohue’s ‘Benedictus: A Book of Blessings’, appropriately named ‘On the Death of the Beloved’. The Mass concluded with Fr. Iggy reciting that very beautiful Cardinal Newman prayer, “O Lord, support us all the day long, till the shadows lengthen, and the evening comes, and the busy world is hushed, and the fever of life is over, and our work is done. Then in your mercy, grant us a safe lodging and a holy rest, and peace at last.”

The kettle was then on the boil and all gathered in the foyer, bedecked with chrysanthemums from Pat Culligan’s garden, and an autumnal arrangement from Mandy’s Flowers, to enjoy a cuppa and chat, along with wonderful homemade cakes and buns for which we thank, Heather Bailey, Marian Gilpin, Fionnuala O’Sullivan, Rita Kenny and Jodie Gilpin. And of course, Vincent Murphy of McCarthys for supplying the crockery.

A special word of thanks to Ann Walsh, Ger McCarthy, Niamh Hayes and Margaret Lawlor for their very efficient ‘dishwashing duties’, Michael Kenrick, sacristan Augustinian Abbey, Austin O’Flynn and Christy Mullins for having the theatre warm and cosy.
Simple but serene, it was an occasion of quiet reflection, and yet warm encounters between our friends who were there to remember their loved ones. Thank you sincerely to all – you were the night, and made the occasion.

Ned Kelly Festival cheque presentation
Matty Tynan, chairman Moyglass Ned Kelly Festival, presenting the total proceeds of this year’s festival, €6,213,  to representatives of three deserving charities, Eddy O’Donnell, representing Tipperary Branch IWA; Catherine Bartels, representing The Alzheimer Society of Ireland; and Agnes O’Toole who accepted the cheque on behalf of C-Saw.
Matty Tynan, chairman Moyglass Ned Kelly Festival, presenting the total proceeds of this year’s festival, €6,213, to representatives of three deserving charities, Eddy O’Donnell, representing Tipperary Branch IWA; Catherine Bartels, representing The Alzheimer Society of Ireland; and Agnes O’Toole who accepted the cheque on behalf of C-Saw.


The proceeds from this year’s Moyglass Ned Kelly Festival were presented to the three chosen charities at The Village Inn on Friday 11th October. The total amount raised was €6213.00. The Charities to benefit were C-SAW, Tipperary Branch Irish Wheelchair Association and The Alzheimer Society of Ireland. A large attendance were welcomed by Chairman Matty Tynan who proceeded to give a brief account of the different activities that took place during the festival. Food, music and craic helped to make the night a great experience for locals and visitors. Videos of The Mock Wedding and Ned Kelly Re-enactment were well received by those in attendance.

Eddy O’Donnell, Kilnockin, accepted the cheque on behalf of the Tipperary Branch IWA and he gave a very interesting speech on the voluntary work that the IWA Branch carry out and how it helps those with disabilities. People with disabilities experience difficulties with public transport and taxis as most are unable to accommodate them. The Tipperary branch supplies buses to locals to help them have equal rights and enable them to attend social functions, day trips, clubs etc. It is the volunteers who give so generously of their time that make such a huge difference to the lifestyles that those with disabilities can now enjoy in comparison to those of who were basically housebound in the past. Without fundraising it would not be possible to provide such services.

Catherine Bartels, Care Co-ordinator accepted the cheque on behalf of The Alzheimer Society of Ireland and she also explained all the services that the society provide. Dementia is life changing for most patients and their families and friends. It is the mission of the society to work for, and on behalf of, people with dementia and their carers to ensure they have the necessary supports and services to enable them to maximise quality of life’ respecting the needs, rights and dignity of the individual. The day care centre in Clonmel (Phone 052 6176775) offers Dementia Specific care in a warm, welcoming and safe environment. This gives a welcome break for family carers. Trained Alzheimer Carers provide, appropriate activities, arts and crafts, gentle exercise, reminiscence, meals and music. A support group and Alzheimer Cafe for family carers is held in the Alzheimer Day Care centre once a month. All are welcome. Contact Catherine Bartels for details, 086/0490548. The centre also offers a transfer service on certain days from Clonmel, Cahir, Cashel, Tipperary Town, Bansha, Fethard, Kilsheelan and Carrick-on Suir. This is a wonderful local service and we are delighted to help in some small way by raising much needed funds for the benefit of patients and carers.

Agnes O’Toole accepted the cheque on behalf of C-Saw and her explanation of the voluntary services gave an insight into the needs of modern society. As with the other two charities, all funds raised will be used in providing services for people in local areas. Joe Leahy from Derryluskin, Fethard is chairman of C-Saw and along with his hard working and dedicated committee, provide vital services for individuals and families. C-SAW provide a free listening service every Monday and Thursday evening from 6.30pm to 7.30pm, at 24 William Street, Clonmel. The phone number is (052) 6172477. They also provide a free coffee morning every Wednesday from 11am to 1pm and all are welcome.

On behalf of the Moyglass Ned Kelly Festival organising committee, I wish to extend our greatest appreciation to all who helped in any way, by taking part in the re-enactments, mock wedding, selling tickets, organising events, marshals on roads, sponsoring hampers, providing food, donations, competitors in walk and cycle runs, vintage run, dog show, platform for dancing and dancers and musicians and all those who attended. You can all feel proud that you are contributing to society in a very positive manner and helping these three most deserving charities.
– (Matty Tynan)

Planning permission for the project was granted by Tipperary County Council in June. It includes a suite of sport, recreation and health facilities from all-weather pitches to a gym, adventure playground, walkway and community space. Cllr Garret Ahearn said: “Having been involved and seen first-hand the commitment and ambition of the development group, stakeholders and the local community, Fethard Town Park has the potential to be a transformative project. I want to thank the project partners who made this happen. Tipperary Co. Council, Coolmore Ireland and the Cashel & Emly Diocese. But most importantly, I want to acknowledge the phenomenal community support received throughout the area with so many organisations and groups involved.”

He paid tribute to the following for their support: Holy Trinity N.S, Patrician Presentation School, Fethard Community Playschool, Fethard GAA, Fethard RFC, Tipperary Sports Partnership, Fethard Scout Group, Fethard Community Council, Youth Work Ireland, local GPs, Fethard Day Care Centre, St. Bernard’s Group Homes, Ribworld, Fethard Equine Hospital and all local small/medium business, CARA, Jigsaw, IWA, Sport Ireland & Healthy Ireland.

The Fethard Town Park proposal is the result of an initiative supported by Coolmore, Tipperary County Council and the local community to build on a shared vision to create a facility which promotes physical and mental health and well-being. The proposed Park will be located close to local primary and secondary schools.

On Saturday October 26, all roads led to the Ragg Camogie Grounds where St. Rita's Camogie team took on Lorrha in the County Junior B Championship final. This was our second year back fielding an adult team. Lorrha were a very experienced team under the guidance of Ken Hogan and our girls knew they had to hurl their best for the full 60 minutes. They were well up for the task!

We competed for every single ball and went in at halftime 2-5 to a goal up. The girls knew going out after halftime that Lorrha were going to throw everything at them and that they did and brought our lead back to three points at one stage. Our girls showed great spirit, determination and skill to hold out victors with four points to spare. The final score was St Rita’s Fethard 2-7 to Lorrha 1-6.

Congratulations to each and every girl on the panel. A very big thanks to the management team of Michael Ryan, Mary O’Mahony and Mia Treacy who put in ferocious work with this team since February. We look forward with great confidence to playing Junior A next year.
