Barony of Gaultier Historical Society

The Barony of Gaultier Historical Society is an organisation that promotes both local and national history within the Barony of Gaultier.

The Barony of Gaultier Historical Society was formed by a group of individuals from the fishing villages of Dunmore East, Passage East, Cheekpoint and the surrounding rural areas.
Barony of Gaultier Historical Society during the winter months holds a number of talks with various guest speakers. Every year we produce a calendar from which all the proceeds are given to a charity. We also hold a Harvest Field Day each summer which the proceeds are also given to a charity.
We also try to visit a historical site each year. Our members are very active and endeavour to improve the Society each year.
Within the Barony of Gaultier which spreads from Creaden Head in the east to Ballinaneesagh in the west there are a number of historical sites. The Giants Grave in Harristown is one of these sites and the Society members visit it a number of times each year.
Membership of the Society is free. Admission to the talks is €5

'Ireland 1918 - elections and conscription'
The Barony of Gaultier Historical Society’s October Talk will be given by Dr Pat McCarthy. The venue for the talk is the Gaultier Room, Woodlands Hotel, Dunmore Road. The date for the talk is Thursday, 18 October with a starting time of 8pm. Admission is €5 for non-members with BGHS members free.

Dr Pat McCarthy who was born in Waterford city, holds a PhD and an MBA from
UCD. He has published extensively in both the Irish Sword and in Decies , the journal of WAHS. He recently published a book “The Irish Revolution, 1912-1923 WATERFORD”.

'In the general election of 1918 Sinn Fein swept the boards and virtually annihilated the Irish Parliamentary Party. This result was not a foregone conclusion. In the early part of that year the Irish Parliamentary Party had shown signs of revival and in April, the leader, John Dillon felt 'we have Sinn Fein on the run.' But all changed with the conscription crisis. How that fateful year played out both nationally and locally in Waterford is the subject of this lecture.

Our October Talk is in Woodlands Hotel.
'Ireland 1918 - elections and conscription' is the title of the Talk

Waterford Treasures Talks 2018 - Presents the 5th Series of Four Lunchtime talks by Dr Eugene Broderick.

‘Ireland and World War Two, 1939-1945’
Wed.10th October: ‘Neutrality and the ‘Emergency’
Wed.17th October: ‘Neutrality under threat: The IRA and Britain’
Wed.24th October: ‘Neutrality under threat: Germany and America’
Wed.31st October: ‘Ireland, the Jews and the Holocaust’

This series of talks looks at a fascinating and dramatic period in Irish history – Ireland during the Second World War, 1939-45. The decision to adopt a policy of neutrality is explained and the severe difficulties experienced in pursuit of it described. Ireland had to deal with extreme internal and external threats in the form of IRA activities, near economic collapse, rationing and possible invasion by either Germany or Britain. These six years of our history are little understood; these talks will inform and enlighten you about them, while entertaining you at the same time!!

Dr Eugene Broderick taught history and served as Principal in the Mercy School Waterford. He completed MA and PhD degrees in history at UCC. He has written and lectured extensively on various aspects of nineteenth and twentieth century Irish history. This is his fifth series of talks since 2016 on 20th century Ireland.

Starting each Wednesday at 1.15pm in the Garden Room of the award winning Medieval Museum.

Only €5 for each talk and all funds go to the Museum acquisition and conservation fund.

Tickets are available in advance from Bishop’s Palace or Medieval Museum receptions or phone 0761 102650 [email protected] OR on the door.

Today we're excited to announce the removal of black plastic from our fruit and veg range by Christmas, with more fresh products to follow.

We'll be the first supermarket in Ireland to do so, and it will result in the removal of over 65 tonnes of black plastic waste every year.

Alongside this, we're also scrapping single-use plastic items from sale. These will be replaced with bio-degradable alternatives!

🥕 - Black plastic removed from all fruit and veg by Christmas 2018
🐟 - Black plastic removed from all fresh fish by February 2019
🍗 - Black plastic removed from all fresh meat, poultry and cured meat by August 2019
🚫 - Single-use plastic items to be scrapped (including straws, disposable plates, cups, cutlery) from today.

For a small, quiet town fording the Clashawley River in South Tipperary, Fethard boasts a huge number of medieval ruins. A good portion of its original 14th-century town walls remain intact, and its 2km heritage trail takes about an hour to complete.

Fethard’s settlement history most likely began with Anglo-Normans who arrived in 1208 and built the town’s first curtain of stone walls. An Augustinian Friary was added in 1305, followed by the antiquities still so beautifully visible today.

The Holy Trinity Church is one of Ireland’s finest medieval parish churches. It is almost 800 years old and can be accessed through Fethard Horse Country Experience The museum developed in the Tholsel building is state of the art and gives an insight into the remarkable stories & heritage of the town.

You are spoilt for choice when it comes to dining as you can choose from Emily's Delicatessen & Tearoom Fethard, Dooks Fine Foods or the infamous pub, restaurant and undertaker McCarthys of Fethard

Great idea, hopefully our second level schools might be able to introduce this into some classes.

Create archives with your school or community to mark the centenary of WWI soldiers of Ireland. Turn history to life.

My blog this week is one of been writing and rewriting in a hope of capturing the importance of the event, the first ship to be launched from the Neptune Iron Works in August 1846. The ship herself was the largest of her type to be constructed in the country at the time and although shortlived, she went on to create quite a stir.

My thanks as ever for the likes, comments, tags and/or shares. I'm indebted to people for such support

Great crowd tonight to hear a fascinating if not amazing talk about a lady born on the Dunmore Road who wrote the memoir Walled Garden, scenes from an Anglo Irish childhood. She wrote several works of fiction and screenplays and has gone on to strive for prison reform and education in America. Her name is Anneable Davis Geoff, certainly worth looking into and if you get an opportunity to hear Joe's talk again don't miss it. More info here:

Over 35’s Tournament A Huge Success
Saturday the 29th of September 2018 will be a date etched in our member’s minds for a long time as it was the day the inaugural Pat Adams Over 35’s Tournament was played for and to the credit of all involved the day proved to be hugely successful, enjoyable and poignant. 6 teams participated on the day and the quality of football was exceptional and proved most enjoyable for all the spectators in attendance. Thanks to Dungarvan, Rathgormack, Brickey Rangers for their participation; a word of thanks also to Niall Corcoran and his Dunmore FC team who impressed al lot of people on the day and Niall’s point had to be seen to be believed! It was super to see so many of our former players in action on the day with our two teams as well as so many of our great adversaries from days gone by. It was a who’s who of footballing greats from all over the county and renowned players like Martin Power, Brendan Curry, PP Ferncombe, Jimmy Sheehan, Wayne Hennessy and the evergreen Mick Hackett senior all showed that they still had what it takes on the pitch and our own lads including the likes of Paul Fitzgerald, Thomas Dunphy, Liam Daniels & Anthony Fitzgerald all showed their skills have not diminished in the slightest. Pat Adams wife Marie and their daughter Ciara were our guests of honour and it was lovely to see them there and it was really nice to catch up with both of them and an honour for the club to be able to play the tournament in Pat’s memory. Anita Norris from the Irish Motor Neuron Disease Association was also in attendance and the club were delighted to help raise funds for this worthy cause on the day. There are so many people who made the day happen and I hope nobody takes offence if I have left them out; thanks to referees Eddie Fitzgerald, John Kiely & Shay Keevans who gave up their time and ensured the games went ahead without (much) controversy. Thanks to Jimmy Farrell, our physio on site and who was the man in most demand throughout the day! The various tasks completed and help from Mary O’ Neill, Kate Boland, Noreen Hutchinson, Tom O’ Neill, Nicky Bowe, Garret Fitzgerald, Aaron Jones, Dean Kearns & Hughie Kearns over the day and beforehand was invaluable. The facilities were in great condition and Johnny Flynn, Dessie Hutchinson, David Pierce and Billy Smyth did a lot of work to make this happen. The club would like to say a huge thanks to all the sponsors who helped us with our costs as well as all those who donated prizes for the raffle. A very special word of thanks to Richard Finnegan and his committee of Damien, Eddie, James & Robin who put in a tremendous effort over the past month or so to ensure the day was so organised and well run; the club was shown off in a very positive light on Saturday and it was down to Richard and everyone else in the background that enabled this to happen. Comhghairdeas agus buíochas le gach duine.
Underage Teams Complete A Week To Remember
3 Gaultier teams were crowned league champions last week and we would like to congratulate the U12 Green, U12 Gold and U11 Green teams on their achievements over their respective seasons. The hard work being put in by all football coaches ensures that our players learn the skills of the game, understand the concept of team work and get so much enjoyment from playing gaelic football for our club; the success of the teams is a huge bonus of course but the development of future players who have the skills to bring success on and off the pitch for the club is always the overall aim for our young teams. Gaultier abú!
September’s lotto draw was held last Wednesday and the jackpot of €4500 was not won so it will roll over in to October as a result. The numbers drawn were 15, 17, 24 & 25. The 4 lucky dip winners who all won €25 were Mary O’ Neill, Anne Smyth, Angie Lojesty & Bernie Fitzgerald.
Gaill Tír Camogie Club 60th Celebrations

Dunmore East Lifeboat


Dunmore East RNLI to feature in new series of the popular TV documentary

The volunteer lifeboat crew of Dunmore East RNLI will be on TV screens soon (Tuesday 2 October) as they feature in a forthcoming episode of the BBC TV series Saving Lives at Sea, which showcases the lifesaving work of the RNLI in Ireland and the UK.

The 10-part documentary series is being shown on BBC Two on Tuesdays at 8pm, and features real-life rescues carried out by the charity’s lifeboat crews and lifeguards around Ireland and the UK, including Dunmore East RNLI.

The series gives a unique insight into the lives and work of the charity’s volunteer lifeboat crew members, who rescue thousands of people and save hundreds of lives around our coastline and on inland waters every year.

The upcoming episode, on Tuesday 2 October, sees Dunmore East RNLI rescue a lone sailor on board a cruiser which had fouled its props after becoming stuck on lobster pot ropes two miles off the Waterford coast. Dunmore East RNLI will be featuring alongside their colleagues at other Irish stations including Courtown, Rosslare and Howth.

Following the huge success of the two previous series, the most recent of which was broadcast last year, this series features more real-life rescue footage, accompanied by heart-warming and emotive testimonials from the volunteer crews, lifeguards and the people they rescue and their families.

Filming took place over the past year, with lifeboat crews and lifeguards carrying special cameras and welcoming film-makers into their day-to-day life. Rescues from the RNLI’s archives are also revisited, and there is a glimpse into the everyday lives of the thousands of men and women who give up their time to save lives.

Saving Lives at Sea is broadcast on BBC Two and continues throughout August, September and October.

Talk by Joe Falvey

Final reminder , for those interested, of my Talk for Positive Ageing Week/Age Action, on tomorrow evening, October 2nd, Ardkeen Library 6.30 pm.
My main focus will be on the former Glenville Estate, former home of the Davis-Goff's but in particular on Annabel Davis Goff( b, 1942) and her writings, through the lens of her memoir Walled Gardens which deals with the change that came to 'their' world and indeed her own personal world with the arrival of Irish Independence when the tide went out on the once dominant world of the Anglo Irish.
It also tells of her own personal journey with some surprising twists and turns. Title of Talk: From Walled Gardens to Prison Walls/Other Days, Other Ways. This lady has had an interesting life and much more besides, since she left the Dunmore Road.
The talk will start at 6.30 sharp so the librarian staff advise early arrival.Talk
