Work on an ambitious multi-million-euro project set to transform the town of Fethard will start in the spring of next year. The Fethard Town Park project, which received a massive boost last week with a €2.6m government regeneration grant, is expected to take eighteen months to complete. The project will consist of a grass pitch, full-size all-weather pitch, dressing rooms, a gym, intergenerational hall, health consultation rooms, parking, a sensory garden, a 2.5m walkway, a cafe and open parkland.

Lands for the project have been gifted by Tipperary County Council, by Coolmore and by the Cashel & Emly Diocese. Coolmore are providing a €1 million benefit in kind donation as well as providing the full-size all-weather pitch. Extensive engagement with the community has already taken place with representatives of schools, sporting and cultural organisations, a wide range of community groups concerned with health and wellbeing, voluntary and statutory agencies as well as business interests in the town. A door to door consultation survey will be carried out to involve everybody in Fethard in the process of delivering a project to meet the needs of everybody in the community.



“Everybody in the community has a role to play. This is the start of something so much bigger than we ever thought”, project manager Caroline Madden told a meeting held in Fethard on Monday night. Ms Madden said that up to now the main drive had been focussed on securing funding. Now that funding has been secured, she said that all of the groups involved in the community project could move on with ensuring the project was delivered for the town and the surrounding area.

Maurice Moloney of Coolmore said there had been a huge amount of goodwill shown towards the project from within the community. “Every organisation in the community has come together and they are determined to deliver something really special” said Mr Moloney. He said the project was about much, much more than a sporting facility and it would be designed to offer something special to the entire community of all age groups.

Planning permission for the project was granted by Tipperary County Council in June of this year. The meeting on Monday night heard that the project would have a transformative effect on the town of Fethard greatly enhancing its attraction as a place to work and live. It would also have an enormous impact on communities in the surrounding towns and villages within a wide radius of Fethard and it would be of such a high standard that it would also have an impact regionally.

A meeting was held in Coolmore Stud on Monday night to discuss plans for the Fethard Town Park project. Those in attendance included (from left) Caroline Madden, project manager; Bill O'Sullivan, Fethard Community Group; Anthony Fitzgerald, Tipperary County Council; Deputy Michael Lowry, Maurice Moloney, Coolmore Stud; Valerie Connolly, Tipperary Sports Partnership; Sonja Reidy, Tipperary County Council; and Clonmel Mayor Garret Ahearn.

The entire community to benefit in Fethard
Editorial Comment (Nationalist, November 14, 2019)

One of the greatest boosts for a Tipperary community was unveiled last week with confirmation that Fethard is to receive €2.6m funding for a major regeneration programme. The news was received with enthusiasm as the scheme will benefit the entire community. And that's the beauty of the project as it's very much an all-inclusive community undertaking that involves a huge range of groups in the town.

Major players are Tipperary County Council and the world-famous Coolmore Stud but the impact of this development will stretch to a myriad of groups and their members. Its name - the Fethard Town Park project - probably doesn't do justice to the scale of the operation. Situated off the Rocklow Road in the historic walled town, the plan incorporates a suite of sport, recreation and health facilities from all-weather pitches to a gym, adventure playground, walkway and community space. Sports clubs, community organisations, health projects, schools and local businesses came together with a shared vision to create a facility which promotes physical and mental health and wellbeing.

Its proximity to the local primary and secondary schools will ensure that the park will be at the very heart of the community. This inclusivity will guarantee its success as everyone can claim ownership of the project. It's no surprise that a community such as Fethard rallied to the cause with such effect. It's a town that has long punched above its weight, gaining national and international acclaim for its wonderfully preserved town walls, its unique place in Irish history and its recognition as the true home of the thoroughbred horse.

The Town Park will be another significant addition to its community resources. A town that has brought all its key players together to push for such a far-sighted facility deserves all the success it gets as a result.

The winner of Butlers Bar Fethard Sports Achievement Award for October was St. Rita’s Junior B Camogie Team who won the club’s first adult County Championship in twenty years by beating Lorrha in the final, played recently in The Ragg, Thurles. A second half Lorrha surge just wasn’t enough to see off the challenge of a faster and slicker St Rita's of Fethard. Player of the Match was Carrie Davey (Fethard) and scorers for Fethard were Lucy Spillane 1-4 (0-2 frees); Alison Connolly 1-2, Leah Coen 0-1. Winning by four points leaving the final score: St Rita's 2-7, Lorrha 1-6.

Two other St Rita's teams were also nominated for the October Award – both county league winners – St. Rita’s U16 B team who beat Ballina in the final; and St. Rita’s U14 B team who beat Cashel King Cormacs in their final.

Senior Boys’ Volleyball
Last week our senior boys' volleyball team travelled to Athlone I.T. to play teams from Roscommon Community College and Grange Community College from Donaghmede in Dublin in the first round of the national competition. Despite the lengthy journey and tired legs, Patrician Presentation Secondary School’s team were comprehensive winners over Roscommon CC in two straight sets. The second match up was much closer needing to go to a third decider to overcome Grange who, to date were unbeaten in four matches. Fethard’s next matches are in Mountrath on Monday November 18th against Mountrath senior boys, a team from Dublin (tbc) and Coláiste an Eachréidh from Athenry. As this is a league competition, with the top teams going straight into finals, and our opponents having already dropped points, just two wins in these three matches would be enough to see Fethard reach the national final on Dec 12th in UCD. A special thanks to the team mentor and coach, Mr McGree, Nell Spillane for acting as assistant referee and Alison Connolly and Michelle Cronin who were scorekeepers on the day.

Cadette Boys’ Volleyball
Fethard won the first match against Coláiste De hInse two sets to nil with emptying the bench from our panel of seventeen. The second game was much closer with Patrician Presentation going down to the hosts Mountrath in a close set 25-19. Fethard recovered very well, however, and had a blistering start to the second set thanks to twelve unanswered serves from Charlie Hackett. Patrician Presentation went on to win the second set comfortably. From there out, Fethard dominated and took the tiebreak set comfortably on a score of 15 to 9.

We now face St Paul's CC of Waterford and Mary Immaculate in our next round on November 25. in Moyle Rovers. Well done to all involved and to team coach and mentor, Mr McGree.

Patrician Presentation School v St Anne’s Secondary School Tipperary Town
On Friday, November 8, Patrician Presentation Secondary School played St Anne’s Secondary School, Tipperary Town, in the third round of the Munster ladies Gaelic football competition in the local Fethard GAA field.

There was great talent on show and commitment displayed by Fethard in this competition, after previously beating Presentation Secondary School Clonmel and receiving a walkover from Our Lady’s Secondary School Templemore.

Patrician Presentation Fethard started strongly going into an early lead with points from Maggie Fitzgerald, Áine Connolly and Leah Coen. Leah found the back of St Anne’s net on the 10th minute; however, St Anne’s got more assertive in the match and begged back the lead with a goal and two points to leave Fethard leading at half time five points up at the break.

The second half was a very open with both teams finding the net on numerous occasions. Goals from Lucy Spillane and two from Leah Coen gave Patrician Presentation a comfortable lead however the St Anne’s grew in confidence and stuck the net themselves on a couple of occasion also. After a tit for tat second half Fethard began to gain a commanding lead with Patrician Presentation Secondary School Fethard winning in the finish with a final score line of Fethard 6-11 to St Anne’s 2-5

Best for Fethard in the backs were Michelle Cronin, Mary Anne Fitzgerald, Lucy Spillane, Carrie Davey, Kelly Ryan and Grainne Murray, while at Midfield Allison Connolly and Lucy Spillane worked very hard throughout the match tracking up and down the field. Maggie Fitzgerald Heather and Nell Spillane were very strong going forward in the half ward line. In the forwards Leah Coen and Áine Connolly were very good throughout the match.

Patrician Presentation Secondary School has now qualified for a Munster Quarter Final against Pobal Scoil Trionode, Youghal. Congratulations to all involved including Mr Cummins, Ms Murphy and Micheál and Sandra Spillane.

Geography Field Trip
Our senior Geography classes accompanied by Ms Barrett and Mr McGree took part in a field trip in Tramore last week. The students carried out a geographical investigation onsite. This is a requirement for Leaving Certificate Geography. Students had a number of tasks to carry out on the day. These tasks included looking at the profile of the beach as well as an analysis of the beach material. Some students showed great bravery in entering the cold water to carry out a survey of the types of waves. It was a great educational experience for all involved despite the poor weather conditions on the day.
