Fethard Athletic Club ended the 2014 season in style with our 5k Santa run on Sunday, December 21.

We had a wonderfully festive crowd of over 150 runners, walkers and buggy pushers who donned their seasonal fancy dress and painted the streets red, white and green as they made their way around the course on a balmy Sunday afternoon.

Joey Feery took the spoils in the mens race and Clonmel athlete, Áine Roche, led home the ladies race. We raised over one thousand euro for the paediatric ward in South Tipperary General Hospital, a really worthy cause.

The club would like to thank all our local sponsors which include Daltons Pharmacy, Kennys Centra, Reflections Hair Salon, Mahers Garage, Butler’s Bar, Fethard Post Office, O’Sullivans Pharmacy, Cashel Motor Parts and also a special word of thanks to Richie Cummins and the Cashel Red Cross for their assistance on the day which fortunately went off without incident.

On behalf of Fethard AC we would like to wish everyone a very happy Christmas and fit and healthy New Year, why not make it a resolution to join the club in 2015? We’d love to welcome some new faces on board.
