The adult season ended on a positive note at the Palatine G.F.C. grounds in Bennekerry on Saturday evening last when the Tinryland Junior (A) team maintained their status in the top junior division after a relegation shoot out with Rathvilly. After a season in which the junior team lost out by the minimum in 2 of their 3 championship encounters the team showed great heart to triumph on Saturday against a decent 2nd team from the Co senior finallists. Tinryland opened the scoring after one minute when Cathal Whelan slotted over a point and the teams were all square mid- way through the opening half when David Townsend scored another point. Rathvilly then enjoyed a productive spell before Tinryland edged ahead in the 29th minute with a wonderful goal from Keelan Gaffney. At half time the men in blue and white led by 2 points after another Mark Dempsey point. Early in the second half Tinryland stretched into an 8 point lead after a brilliant goal from veteran full forward Niall Barrett and points from Keelan Gaffney, Mark Morrissey and Dean Farrell. Rathvilly fought back with a brilliantly executed goal to reduce the margin to 4 points before Tinryland put the icing on the cake with a great Michael Dobosz goal entering the final quarter. Outstanding for Tinryland were Conor Ryan, Shane O’Neill, Padraic Whelan, Mark Morrissey, Keelan Gaffney, Michael Dobosz, Dean Farrell, Cathal Whelan and Niall Barrett.

Now that the playing season has finished for 2017 all club members and players are asked to support the Bootcamp which has been up and running for the past 2 weeks. The bootcamp will take place every Wednesday evening at 7.30 p.m. and every Saturday morning at 9 30 a.m. For further details contact Cian Lawlor or Marcus Lawler at 085 8402756/085 1217547.

The club A.G.M. has been fixed for Monday 4th December. Plans are also in train for the annual dinner dance. Further details to follow. Keep up to date with all happenings in Tinryland G.F.C. on club website, facebook, twitter and Nationalist weekly club notes.

The ladies team were knocked out of the Leinster ladies J.F.C. at the quarter final stage on Sunday last when Meath champions Clann Na nGael proved too strong for the 3 in a row Carlow champions. Bennekerry-Tinryland started last Sundays game played in Bohermeen in positive fashion and were 4 points ahead within 8 minutes of the throw in. An early point from full forward Roisin Byrne and 3 Elaine Ware conversions kept the home crowd quiet in those early stages. In the 9th minute against the run of play Clann na nGael rattled the B/T net and the teams were all square mid- way through the opening half. Bennekerry Tinryland regained the lead briefly with a wonderful Leah Mullins goal 10 minutes before half time but the home team cheered on by a sizeable crowd upped the ante and led by 4 points at half time. In the 2nd half B/T scored the opening point which left only 3 points separating the teams but it was the fitter home team that dominated for the next 20 minutes building up a lead of 13 points. Bennekerry-Tinryland rallied in the closing stages with 2 great goals from substitutes Sinead Hayden and Niamh Kelly but it was too little too late and Clann na nGael progressed to meet the Longford champions in the semi-final. Impressive for Bennekerry-Tinryland were goalkeeper Shannen Cotter together with midfielder Cliodhna Ni She, Leah Mullins, Elaine Ware, and subs Niamh Kelly, Alex McNeill and Sinead Hayden.

The season at adult level is almost over and there is only one game at junior level left to be decided. The J.F.C. (A) relegation fixture with Rathvilly was due to be played on Friday last but was postponed due to Rathvilly’s involvement in the Co. senior final. A new date for the junior fixture has still to be confirmed.

The October executive committee meeting will take place on this Tuesday evening at 8 p.m. sharp.

Congratulations to club member Denis Flood who celebrated a special birthday with a party in the clubhouse on Saturday last.

The juvenile section of the club will remember the late John Scott at their awards night which will take place in the clubhouse on Saturday next 30th September at 8 p.m. John who passed away 2 years ago will be remembered by a trophy in his name which will go to the U16 player of the year. The late John was a tremendous asset to the club and served in many positions prior to his passing and it is fitting that his memory will continue on an annual basis as he had a particular interest in the development of young players in Tinryland G.F.C. At next Saturdays event awards will be presented to players aged 11 to 16. A successful skills day and presentation evening for younger players took place on Saturday last. Tinryland G.F.C. after a number of lean years had a satisfactory year at juvenile level in 2017 with all teams at least reaching a semi-final in their respective age groups. The U14 team were in action last evening Monday in the Fairgreen Shopping Centre division 2 final against O’Hanrahans.

The ladies team that recently won a 3rd consecutive Carlow S.F.C. will now contest the 1st round of the Leinster J.F.C. against Meath opponents on week ending 8th October.

A six week boot camp will begin at club headquarters in Rathcrogue on Saturday 7th October. All levels of fitness from beginner to advanced will be catered for. Enquiries to Cian on 085 8402756 or Marcus 085 1217547.

 Congratulations to senior player John Murphy on his great achievement in winning the National U21 ploughing title in Screggan Co. Offaly on the opening day of the ploughing championships on Tuesday last. John recently won an U21 football medal with Tinryland and featured in all the senior championship games this year. Congratulations also go to senior team goalkeeper Trevor O’Reilly and his wife Roisin on the birth of their new daughter on Sunday last.
