Fethard Survey to let us know your thoughts!
Fethard Community Council wish to gather the opinions of the residents of Fethard with a view to further improving the Town. While a lot has been achieved over the years, we now consider it an opportune time to plan for the future. In order to do this we want to involve you from the start. As a first step, we invite you to take a few minutes to complete our short survey. Forms will be delivered to your home by a member of the Community Council or a person from your area. You can also access the form through any of the Fethard Clubs and Organisations.

We hope that each person in your household will fill-in an individual form. All answers will be treated as anonymous. We aim to collect the forms in the coming days. If you would prefer, you can access the Form at the Town Hall or submit form below at Fethard.com


All we are asking you to do is to list the following:

  • Things I DISLIKE about Fethard;
  • Things I LIKE about Fethard;
  • My IDEAS TO IMPROVE Fethard.

All these opinions will be collated and based on this. After further consultations we can start planning for new projects for the Town.

Woodvale Walk residents benefit from bonfire prevention

Children in front are Calum O'Donovan and Jennifer O'Donnell-Roberts.


Woodvale Walk residents, working with Tess Collins, Community Liaison Officer from Tipperary County Council’s Housing Department, have re-established the residents’ committee for Woodvale Walk. The residents committee, together with Tipperary County Council, firstly agreed on taking part in a special Waste Management Project to help prevent materials being gathered for the annual bonfire in their estate. The project focused on preventative measures to stop the build-up of materials used for bonfires. It transpired also that some people living outside the estate were using it as an opportunity to dump their waste in the estate’s green area, to be burnt on their bonfire.

One of the priority actions was to tackle the problem and achieve a lasting solution. The issues were identified and a network of residents from local authority estates was set up, working with their local Garda, Shane O’Neill and other Gardaí in the Carrick-on-Suir Municipal District. This allowed the Woodvale Walk committee to create awareness among all the other resident network members.

The Council agreed to source special environment funding as part of their ‘Anti-Dumping Initiative’ for the Woodvale Walk residents’ association, who also requested to include the adjacent estates. This resulted in a big clear-up taking place within days, supported by John O’Neill, Enforcement Officer, Environment Section.

The project consisted of carrying out a complete survey of waste disposal needed for Woodvale Walk, Kilnockin View, Gort An Oir, Cannon Hayes Court, Fr. Tirry Park and Barrack Street estates in Fethard Town. This survey was completed by the Woodvale Walk residents and representatives from the other five estates, along with Tess Collins, Community Liaison Officer. John O’Neill, Enforcement Officer, co-ordinated the list of waste to be removed and residents were delighted when it happened.

The follow up awareness campaign helped residents understand how not to build up rubbish and going forward, to realise they must have proof of their waste disposal, encouraging them to think before they throw anything out, instead use many of the existing methods to get rid of items for free or visit waste banks, free trade in or just recycle it. One important message was not to feed bonfires by giving materials to callers who were gathering ‘waste.

A great benefit for Woodvale Walk residents was the placing of a set of permanent goalposts on the green area and a concrete skittles run to be used by the local children and youths. The development of a ‘Memorial Garden’ for deceased residents on the estate is also in progress.

The committee and Tipperary County Council have worked hard to achieve this and it is a credit for their dedication and efforts. The local Youth Services in the area will train their volunteers so they are ready to roll out the activities on the green and hope to involve parents and children in the activities so all will have fun. The Clonmel Skittles Club have also agreed to help mark out the skittles run and give initial help to establish this sport in their estate and with a few residents already familiar with this sport and living in the estate they look forward to it taking off and maybe having fun leagues for the enjoyment of all.

Some twenty years ago the United Nations adopted a resolution declaring that the third Sunday of November should mark an international day of commemoration for road traffic victims. It is now observed in many countries and in recent years the cause has taken off in Ireland. It is in keeping with that spirit that in the past two years it has been marked with a special celebration in the Augustinian Abbey in Fethard.

On this past Sunday, November 17, a service was organised in the Abbey to commemorate all who have died or been injured resulting from road traffic tragedy. The Augustinian Prior Fr Iggy O Donovan presided, and he was joined by a large gathering of the Fethard community along with people from surrounding parishes. A notable feature of the celebration was the presence of a group of students from the Patrician Presentation School who helped to organise and participated in the liturgy. They brought a youthful vibrancy to the occasion. Also present were members of the Gardaí along with Deputies Mattie McGrath and Seamus Healy.

John Meagher OSA whose second anniversary mass was also on Sunday, Mary Fitzgerald, a sister of Fr. David Fitzgerald OSA, and Noeline O'Donovan, a sister of Fr. Iggy O'Donovan OSA, who travelled home from Germany for the memorial Mass and who also lost a brother due to a road traffic accident.

Iggy O'Donovan OSA, who travelled home from Germany for the memorial Mass and who also lost a brother due to a road traffic accident.

The Abbey choir were in tremendous voice and greatly added to the solemnity of the occasion. Also present were numerous people who had been affected in one way or another by road traffic tragedy. A variety of gifts were brought to the altar all highly symbolic of the sombre event which was being celebrated. Fr O'Donovan mentioned that while road traffic fatalities make for grim reading the figures compare very favourably with those of a generation ago. Indeed, they are only a quarter now of those of the 1970s when there was only a fraction of present day traffic on the roads. He also mentioned that in providing services of this kind our church which has become so irrelevant in so many ways can in fact relate to reality.

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.

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.
