Summertime in Fethard 2017

The weather is  and has been good this year which makes the countryside around  Fethard looking lovely indeed. A great time to climb up to the Holy Year Cross on Slievenamon Mountain  (c.650 M), five kilometres to the south east of the town. Allow one hour up and one hour down  , on the well defined path.

The opening of the new Fethard Horse Country Experience got huge national publicity on the Nationwide programme on RTE1 TV , and the Experience itself (and the Information Office, Toilets and Café at Ground Level) adds greatly to the amenities of and accessibility to this lovely corner of County Tipperary.
