Confirmation has been received from the contractors that the play equipment is on order and work is well underway on the site at Cashel Road in preparation of the Community Playground in the coming months. While over €100,000 in funding has been secured from South Tipperary County Council and South Tipperary Development Company it is necessary that the community contribute some euros to the project. In this regard the committee are promoting a fundraising event in conjunction with Clonmel Greyhound Stadium.
Fethard will ‘Go to the Dogs’ on Thursday, May 23. Mark this date in your diary, it promises to be a great night of fun and entertainment and an opportunity to see and experience the splendid new facilities at Clonmel Track. The focus on the night will be the ‘Buster Draw’ when the finishing order of the greyhounds in a particular race will win €1,500 for one lucky ticket-holder. Tickets, priced at €20, are now on sale locally. In addition to being in with a chance to win the prize money the ticket also gains the holder free entry to the track on the night.
Residents of Fethard and surrounding area will soon be approached to lend their support to this enjoyable, worthwhile event. There is also the opportunity for businesses and individuals to contribute, by sponsoring a race or placing an advert in the race-card. If you are interested in supporting either of these options please contact Carmel on or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
