On Saturday evening last in McCarthyâ€™s there was a terrific show of community spirit all in aid of The Tracey Walsh Benefit fund.
We saw a huge number of local people digging deep into their pockets at a testing time.
John Looby from Kilfeacle started the auction and with tremendous spirit and swift bidding we saw over 50 lots sold in quick fashion. Special thanks to Johnny for doing such a tremendous job, he is true Irish character.
Thanks for the great plug Johnny on Tipp FM on Monday morning. Also huge thanks to all the local business and friends who donated the fantastic prizes for the auction.
Earlier in the evening there was a special showing of our local film Stella Days in the Abymill Theatre. There was a huge turnout and thank you to McCarthyâ€™s and Cashel Blue Cheese for the wine and cheese reception on arrival.
We would also like to thank all those who supported the evening events. There was a draw for the Fethard Rugby Clubs players in aid of the benefit fund, the prize of a day with the Munster Rugby squad. Well done to our lucky players Conor Vaughan and David Heffernan for being the names pulled of the hat to enjoy a wonderful day in Spring.
Wishing all the players and followers of Fethard & District Rugby Club a Happy, healthy and safe 2013. All squads are back training on Friday, January 4.
