Fethard Town Park is an ambitious project with the potential to create significant transformative impact on the lives of people in Fethard today and in the generations to come. It is a direct response to an identified need to address social and health related issues in Fethard and the wider region and a deficit in recreational facilities to meet the needs of its people. Fethard Regional Community Sport & Recreational Campus CLG is a non-profit local community group set up to develop and manage Fethard Town Park.
