On Tuesday, January 14, Patrician Presentation Secondary School played Scoil Pól Secondary School Limerick in the semi-final of the Munster Ladies Gaelic Football competition in Bansha GAA field Co.

Scoil Pól got more assertive in the match after a few minutes. After numerous chances, Leah Coen found the back of the net just before half time. Patrician Presentation’s passing was very impressive from our half back line right up to the full forward line.

This will be the school's fourth final in just three years which is such an achievement for our school and community.

Donating books to the Book Fair?
Every year, people from all over the county are very supportive of the Tipperariana Book Fair and donate books to the organisers, Fethard Historical Society, for sale on the Society’s stand at the fair. This year’s fair takes place on Sunday, February 9, from 2pm to 6pm in Fethard Ballroom.

Every year, people from all over the county are very supportive of the Tipperariana Book Fair and donate books to the organisers, Fethard Historical Society, for sale on the Society’s stand at the fair. This year’s fair takes place on Sunday, February 9, from 2pm to 6pm in Fethard Ballroom.

Modern books in good condition, are always sought after at the fair, as the thirty or so dealers who attend have mostly more serious and antiquarian type books on their stalls.

It is true to say that there are very few ‘valuable’ books – in the monetary sense – lying around. But there are lots of ‘sought after’ books and pamphlets, especially in older households, that may seem ordinary and uninteresting but can be of great interest to collectors and even wanted by Tipperary County Libraries for their Local Studies Centre in The Source in Thurles. So, the organisers will gladly receive all books – especially ones of local and Tipperary interest. If possible, people who are clearing out old houses should try and contact a member of the Historical Society to advise in case some rare items are not ending up in the dump.

Everything is not on the Web!
It is sometimes taken for granted by younger people that ‘everything’ is stored in ‘the cloud’ and can be googled if needed. But, the fact is, that everything on the web has to be put there by someone, and most older, local ‘stuff’ probably never will be uploaded, so it is very important that copies are kept by the various libraries for the use of researchers and social historians in the future. People who wish to make contact with the organisers of the bookfair, can email: bookfair@fethard.com or text/phone 087 9305232 or 087 9009722.

Tipperary Books and the Book Fair
25th Annual Book Fair on Sunday, February 9, 2020
It’s amazing how time flies, and a ‘book fair in the Ballroom’ that began on the second Sunday in February in 1996 is still going strong after twenty-five-years.  The organisers – Fethard Historical Society – did not know what to expect all those years ago as it was a ‘new idea’ for everyone involved. But, it did take off from year one and has not looked back since.  
One contributory fact was, that good advice was sought and taken, from knowledgeable ‘book dealing people’, in particular, the late Rudi Holzapfel who ran a great second-hand and antiquarian bookshop in Tipperary town at that time. In fact, the formula worked so well that it has not changed much in the past 25 years; as the Americans say, ‘If it’s not broken, don’t fix it.’  So, it is still held on the second Sunday in February, with an in-house Café and a piano player on stage to add more ambience to the event. The presence of the large Ballroom space makes such a venture possible and it is also wonderful that the Fethard Ballroom is also very much a going concern twenty-five-years later.

The name ‘Tipperariana Book Fair’
People sometimes ask where the name ‘Tipperariana’ came from, and like most things it happened by accident. For the second fair in 1997, Rudi Holzapfel compiled a forty-page booklet, listing all the better known ‘Tipperary books’ produced in the last two centuries. He also gave ‘guide prices’ that antiquarian book collectors would pay for all the books listed. ‘Tipperariana’ was the title he gave to his booklet and ever since the organisers have called the annual fair ‘The Tipperariana Book Fair’. The Tipperariana Book Fair has now been adopted by all Tipperary people as ‘their’ county book fair and this has added to its continuing success.

Book donations gladly received.
The book fair is the one fund raising venture of the Fethard Historical Society during the year, and the sale of donated books at the fair forms a big part of the overall income. Anyone wishing to donate books can contact any member of the society or email: history@fethard.com or phone 087 9305232 / 087 9009722 and arrangements will be made to receive the books in the coming weeks.
There are a few aspects of the upcoming Tipperariana Book Fair, on Sunday, February 9, that are particularly important for books of Tipperary and local interest. Firstly, the book dealers who come from all over the country to the fair make sure to gather up their ‘Tipperary interest’ books and have them for sale on the day, knowing that there will be a market in Fethard for all Tipperariana type books and memorabilia. The reverse is also true, with punters being very happy to come across a local book that they always wanted, as it may have some photo or reference in it to their family or locality.

Secondly, the organisers of the book fair , the Fethard Historical Society, receive donations of ‘ould books’ that otherwise might end up in the skip , and the odd one can be rare or special in some way and will go for sale at the fair and make some purchaser very happy on the day.

Tipperariana Book of the Year
A feature of this whole annual focus on books in the county is the nomination, by the organisers of the Book Fair, of their Tipperariana Book of the Year. Every year over thirty or more substantial books or journals are published in county Tipperary and the Book of the Year concept is just another way to draw attention to, and give recognition to, the authors and publishers of such books. In many ways these books are the ‘stored memory’ of the people of Tipperary and their importance will only increase with the passing of time.

The organisers also try to invite as many as possible of the authors of ‘Tipperary’ books – published in the preceding year – to come to the fair to promote, sell and sign their books.

Anyone wishing to make contact with the organisers of the upcoming 25th Tipperariana Book Fair on Sunday, February 9, or who wish to donate books, can email bookfair@fethard.com or text or phone 087 9305232 or 087 9009722.
