Congratulations to our under 21 team on reaching the South semi final. This Saturday, 23rd November, they play Ballybacon/Grange in Cahir at 2.00 pm. All St Mary’s supporters are urged to come and support the lads.


Our AGM is being held in the GAA Centre on Friday December 6th. The officers are encouraging members to get involved with any aspect of the club, such as, finance, Juveniles, Club Lotto, Communications, Social aspect etc.

The club has grown hugely over the last decade and the result is a growing pool of talent at all age levels. To manage and support this growth the club needs more people to put their shoulder to the wheel, if everyone gives a little it is not too heavy a burden on anyone.

The AGM is an opportunity for club members to come together and reflect on their club’s progress and future so please make an effort to attend. Any members interested in getting involved contact Sean O Sullivan (086) 6086667 or Noel Buckley (087) 8537266

Fethard Juvenile GAA Club held their AGM on Friday night last in the Tirry Centre at 8pm. Andy O’Donovan (outgoing Chairman) gave a very positive annual report and all agreed that the club is heading in a positive direction and if we all work as a team and get involved we will have a great Juvenile Club for years to come. The highlight of the year was our U14 Hurling team who won the South and County title.

Cúl Camp this year was a great success, with numerous parents complimenting the club on its organisation and running. A huge thanks was extended to all involved.

School training has been re-organised now with a dedicated coach attending every week, but we still need parents to get involved to assist. Thanks was given to those assisting with the GAA School liaison. Coaches were also confirmed for U6, U8, U10, U12 and U14 age groups. We were delighted to put forward Jamie McCormack to the South Board na nOg as one of the South Division Under 15 Football coaches.

We are looking to confirm coaches for our U16 teams.

We really need parents to come on board with assisting U6 coaching on Saturday mornings. So if you can spare the time, or if you stay to watch and don’t mind helping, please let the coach know at training.
