Tipperary Sports Partnership is facilitating a Child Welfare & Protection in Sport Basic Awareness training. The course is aimed at sports leaders, children’s officers, parents or anyone working with young people in sport. A central goal for all those involved in sport for young people is to provide a safe, positive and nurturing environment where children can develop and enhance their physical and social skills. Promoting a child-centred environment should go hand in hand with identifying and eliminating practices that impact negatively on safe and enjoyable participation in sport for young people.

The Trial of Fr Thomas O’Donnell
On the 10th October 1919 an incident occurred in the dining room of the International Hotel in Killarney, that threatened to cause a huge diplomatic fall out between Great Britain and Australia. Army Captain and Chaplain, Rev. Fr. Thomas O’Donnell of the Australian Imperial Forces, was engaged in aminated conversation with a certain Wm Marsh from Bangor in Co Down, when they were interrupted by an off duty British Lieutenant. The officer, Stewart Chambers, accused the priest of speaking sedition and using treasonous language in relation to the King and Empire.
The seemingly minor affair was to escalate out of all proportion and Fr. O’Donnell was to find himself arrested and placed on trial by courtmartial in the Guildhall at Westminster. An array of impressive witnesses was assembled by the prosecution and the priest’s conviction would have seemed but a formality.
But they had not counted on the one formidable witness that testified on behalf of the defence. That woman, Georgina Bennett had strong ties with Borrisoleigh and most of her family are buried in Glenkeen. It was chiefly down to Miss Bennetts performance in the witness box, that Fr. O’Donnell was acquitted.
To mark the centenary of the event, TiDR [Tipperary in a Decade of Revolution] are organising a commemorative event in the exact room in the hotel where that incident took place, – and are doing so on the exact centenary [8.10 pm on 10 October next]. This commemoration will be delivered by way of historic lecture, narration and re-enactment. Local dramatists have kindly come on board to lend their support.
We will be running a bus to Killarney for this event and we hope that people will come along to share in what should be a memorable occasion. The international Hotel are working on a special deal that will include a meal. More details about that later. We will be posting regular updates and when we have an idea of numbers, we will give more definite information.
