U13 match report:


Tinryland were favourites heading into this game but it was Clonmore who got the better start, scoring 2 goals and a point in quick succession. This was the wake up call Tinryland needed and they quickly settled into the game.  Jamie Doyle opened the scoring and got his first point of the day from a free kick to put Tinryland on the score board.  This was quickly followed by a goal and a point from Bobby Doyle to narrow the gap. Clonmore were unlucky not to pull further ahead after failing to convert on some great attacking play. A free kick from Tomás Murphy levelled the game, with Jamie Doyle getting a second to secure the lead. Tinryland were starting to take control of the game and Robbie Fitzgerald got a lovely point from play before Tomás Murphy finished the scoring in the first half with a goal to leave it 2-5 to 2-1 at half time. Tinryland started the second half more like the team they have become this year, the defence shut down the Clonmore forwards with Clonmore only scoring 0-1 in the second half and building from the back Tinryland pushed on in the second half to win comprehensively in the end. Jamie Doyle added 2-1, Jake O’Brien scored 1-1 & Daniel Walsh, Tomas Murphy & Mickey Byrne added a point each. Leaving the final score 5-10 to 2-2. 


Team: Lorcan O’Connor, Conall McGuire, Paddy Walshe, Harry O’Brien, Robbie Fitzgerald(0-1), Ross Moran, Bobby Doyle(1-1), Mickey Byrne(0-1), Jake O’Brien(1-1), Daniel Walsh(0-1), Tomás Murphy(1-2), Jack Walton, Jamie Doyle(2-3), Sean Murphy, Adam Nolan, Ethan Webb, Cathal Brennan, Leo Bamrock & Ben Traynor.

That game will take place on Tomorrow Wednesday 9th October at 7.30 p.m. in the Fenagh training centre.

On Friday 27th September the club celebrated a quarter century in existence with a club celebration evening.

Match reports:

Tinryland senior footballers got their Michael Lyng Motors S.F.C. campaign back on track in a big way with a great win over current champions Eire Óg at Netwatch Cullen Park on Saturday last. Early and late goals from Diarmaid Walshe and sub. Matthew O’Toole laid the foundations for this victory with the men in blue and white rewarded with their 2nd victory in this year’s championship. Tinryland led for most of the first half after Walshe’s early goal but by half time the sides were tied at 1-3 each. Eire Óg led for a brief period in the 2nd half but the introduction of fresh legs resulted in Tinryland upping the tempo in the closing stages with late points from Conor and Matthew O’Toole and the clinching goal from the latter who was introduced as a substitute mid- way through the 2nd half. Tinryland will now advance to the quarter final in two weeks when they play our neighbours Palatine.

Bennekerry/Tinryland senior ladies will attempt to regain the Carlow S.F.C. title when they take on current Carlow and Leinster champions Old Leighlin in the 2019 final on Thursday next 29th August at Netwatch Cullen Park at 8 p.m. The BT ladies have already beaten their opponents in this year’s group stage but lost out to them in the league final earlier in the year. Both sides are expected to be at full strength for next Thursday’s game under floodlights and with a strong representation of county players in action for both teams a closely fought game is anticipated. Bennekerry/Tinryland senior panel recently received a new set of jerseys sponsored by Dublin based Co. Flexi Fi. The jerseys were presented to the panel by CEO P J Byrne and Carlow area manager David Hickey on Wednesday last.

Volunteers wanted:

The club is looking for volunteers to man the car parks at the National Ploughing Championships 17 -19th Sept. Contact Chairperson Mick Murphy or any committee member if interested. All help appreciated.
