Humpty Dumpty will be shouting for Tipp on August 19 - but he’ll be in Fethard on the big day

It’s now known that Tipperary will be playing Kilkenny in Croke Park on the day of Fethard’s Medieval Festival, Sunday, August 19, and Fethard town will be a great place for a family day out where fun in the Valley for some and hurling on a ‘Big Screen’ for others will be a winning combination.

As previously reported Humpty Dumpty will be present and he says he will be supporting Tipperary on the day, which is probably a good idea for a man in his position.

Art Competition

Some ‘art pieces’ have already been handed into the Community Offices in the Tirry Centre (052 6131000) in the children’s ‘Humpty Dumpty on Fethard’s Wall’ art competition so children in the area are encouraged to have a go, as there are nine prizes in all, so there is a good chance of winning. The age categories are: (A) under 8 years, (B) 8 to 12 years and (C) 13 to 18 years and ‘A3’ is the maximum size allowed. We have a recent photo of Humpty but as he often changes his clothes you are free to paint him or draw him in any outfit you like as long as you have Fethard’s town wall in the painting.

Humpty to present prizes

All the art pieces will be displayed on the day of the festival and Humpty himself will present the prizes, so this could be a once in a lifetime chance to have your photo taken with this worldwide celebrity.
