Fethard Macra Club recently held their monthly club meeting in McCarthys Bar, Fethard.
There were lots to discuss on the night including our upcoming tag tournament, which will be held on Saturday, May 21, at Fethard Rugby Club’s grounds, where clubs from all over South Tipp and further afield will attend on the day.
The annual ‘Mr Personality Festival’ took place last weekend at the Springhill Court Hotel, Kilkenny. Our club secretary, Pat Murphy, was representing South Tipp over the weekend and after doing so well, he narrowly lost out in the end. It was great to see so many members from the club supporting him and displaying their posters to cheer him on.
On Sunday last, the national finals of the volleyball competition took place in The Watershed, Kilkenny. The competition was very tough so we knew we had to do very well if we were to proceed. After winning our first two matches, we were finally beaten by both Glanmire and Dunmanway from Cork, with Dunmanway making the final against Callan. Callan then went on to win. Incidentally, the only team to beat Callan on the day was us, so at least we can take that away from the day and there's always next year to look forward to. Volleyball continues every Thursday night at Monroe Sports Complex, starting from 8.30pm. All welcome.
Our monthly cinema night takes place this Wednesday, April 27, in Clonmel and we are having great turnouts on these events, with a few visitors from other clubs also coming along, so keep it up.
