Halla na Feile

Halla na Feile

The Management Committee of Halla na Feile has voted unanimously to reject an offer of €50,000 per annum for ten years in return for allowing five mobile phone and broadband antennae to be placed on the mobile phone mast at Halla na Feile. The mast is the property of the Halla.

The offer was rejected on the grounds that it was not in keeping with the ethos of Halla na Feile of service to the community. The members are of the view that its patrons, its neighbours and the community of Cashel and surrounding areas would not welcome the antennae even though fifty thousand euro per annum would go a long way towards realizing plans for a new Halla. Halla na Feile is of the community and for the community!

The Chairman, Sean Murphy thanked the members for their decision which was reached after due consideration. He said that the officers had consulted with the Halla advisers and met with the representative of the Agency that made the offer. The ultimate decision was the responsibility of the Management Committee and the members’ decision was to reject the offer. This decision was backed up by the unanimous decision of the Trustees of the Halla.

SOCIAL DANCING Classes continue on Tuesday evenings from 8.30 to 10.45pm. These are very enjoyable classes and beginners are catered for.

A feast of Dancing coming up: Sam O’Doherty on Tuesday 25th October and Dermot Lyons on Friday, 28th October. Make a note in your diary and we look forward to seeing you.

Michael Murphy Retires

On the occasion of his retirement from South Tipperary County Council after 32 years, friends and colleagues wish Michael Murphy many years of health and happiness.

Michael was a familiar figure around Cashel as the driver of the John Deere lawnmower, who meticulously cut the grass areas of the town and environs. Michael took great pride in maintaining the green areas of the town and surrounding villages to a standard that was second to none.

Michael’s affable nature and his remarkable sense of humour made him one of the most respected and popular employees of the County Council.

Best of Luck to Michael, his wife Mary and his family in the future.


It is that time of the year again!!!! Yes the 2011 production from Cashel Choral & Dramatic Society is coming your way and the society is very proud to present the Irish Premier of Class of 77, a new musical by Australian David Hines, which takes to the stage in Bru Boru for five nights, starting Wednesday 9th November, until Sunday 13th. The cast and crew are presently deep in rehearsal under the guidance of producer Tom FitzGerald and musical director John Murray. With fifteen exciting songs ranging from pop and ballads to rock, the Class of 77 is funny, touching, invigorating and evocative of a youth untroubled by 21st century distractions. So put the dates in your diary. More info will come your way over the coming weeks.


All are welcome to attend the first meeting for the 2012 Cashel St.Parick’s Day committee. The meeting takes pace in Mikey Ryan’s at 7 :00 PM on Thursday the 13th of October. A number of important items will be on the agenda and it is hoped that the season will kick off with a large attendance. For more information call Sean Laffey on 06262685
