Fethard GAA is a Gaelic Athletic Association gaelic football club located in the medieval town of Fethard, County Tipperary in Ireland. The club is affiliated to the South Division of Tipperary GAA. They have been Tipperary Senior Football champions on a record twenty one occasions.[1]The club grounds is “Fethard GAA Park”, or the Barracks field as it’s known as locally, Due to the fact it was once part of the army drill grounds. In 1931 upon arrival in Fethard Br Leo Slattery , the thorny process of acquiring the field began. However it took another Brother, Br Albert Small to sort all the legal matters. On Sunday ninth July 1974, the field and grounds were officially opened by Fr Cunningham, local curate. On the 11th May 1982 , following improvements to the grounds, it was officially opened as Fethard GAA Park. The medieval Town Wall circumnavigating Fethard runs along the southern boundary of the grounds. The facilities present include a full sized field, a patrons stand, two tennis courts, two covered handball courts, dressing rooms and an Astro turf facility completed in 2017
