The championship season is upon us and there will be three Tinryland teams in action in the coming week. First up is the Junior B squad who play Kildavin-Clonegal in Rathcrogue on Tomorrow Wednesday at 8 p.m. This team needs a win to guarantee a quarter final spot having defeated O’Hanrahans and lost to Eire Og in previous rounds.

On Saturday next the senior team will open their campaign in the Michael Lyng Motors Carlow S.F.C. with a mouth- watering local derby against neighbours Palatine at 7.30 p.m.

On the following Sunday evening The No. 1 junior team will open their championship campaign in the Talbot Hotel J.F.C. against St. Patricks at the training centre in Fenagh at 6.30 p.m.

The main action in the past week concerned the U17 team who were very impressive in defeating Mount Leinster Rangers in round 4 of the championship. The boys in blue and white got off to a great start with a Padraig Thompson goal in the early stages and further goals from Jonah Dunne, Aongus O’Shea and Cormac O’Brien left the home side leading by 4-3 to 0-4 at half time.

With dominant displays from Cormac O’Brien and Paddy Regan Tinryland kept their foot on the pedal despite strong pressure from their southern opponents. A penalty miss failed to deter Tinryland and the goal tally was increased when Aongus O’Shea scored his team’s 5th goal just before the final whistle. Outstanding for Tinryland were goalie Cian McCreanor, defenders Sam Byrne, Brian McGrath, Dannan Burke, together with Paddy Regan, Aongus O’Shea, Cormac O’Brien and Jonah Dunne.

Bennekerry-Tinryland ladies had a good week also. At senior level Roisin Byrne, Elaine Ware and Leah Mullins were part of the Carlow team that defeated Derry in the TG4 All Ireland qualifiers on Saturday last. Carlow will now play Limerick in their next game on August 11th with a place in the All Ireland semi-final at stake. At juvenile level Bennekerry-Tinryland girls won the U12 (A) championship defeating Old Leighlin at the Carlow training centre. The U14 team were narrowly beaten in their final by the holders Naomh Eoin in a very exciting match.

The Annual Tinryland G.F.C. golf classic will take place in Gowran Park on Friday 10th and Saturday 11th August. Further details from Cormac Walshe 0861945633 or Mark Morrissey 0861231208.

Sympathy is extended to club registrar Eamonn O’Sullivan from Rathcrogue on the passing of his father Sean on Saturday 7th July. Mr O’Sullivan was laid to rest in the west Cork village of Enniskeane on Tuesday last. Ar Dheis De go raibh a h-anam dilis.

It was a quiet week on the club playing front with only one Tinryland team in action. The Junior (B) team travelled to Pairc Ui Bhrian to take on Eire Og in round 2 of the J F.C. (B). After a high scoring game Eire Og emerged victorious on a scoreline of 5-14 to 2-13. The concession of two early goals meant that Tinryland had a mountain to climb from the early stages but in fairness the team remained competitive throughout and were still in contention mid-way through the 2nd half. Outstanding for the men in blue and white who play Kildavin-Clonegal in the next round were Garry Moran scorer of 1-8, Colm Kearney, Garry Scully, David O’Shea, John Whyte and Dinny Farrell.

In ladies football Carlow lost out to Louth in the Leinster junior final on Sunday. Bennekerry Tinryland who have won the Carlow S.F.C. for the past 3 years had one representative Nuala Mohan on the starting fifteen with Leah Mullins and Roisin Byrne being introduced as substitutes in the 2nd half. Other BT members on the panel were Ciara Nolan, Deirdre Tomlinson and Elaine Ware. Carlow will now take part in the TG4 All Ireland series with their opening match against Derry on 14th July. Limerick are the other team in Carlow’s group in the championship.

The Tinryland G.F.C. golf classic will take place in Gowran on Friday 10th and Saturday 11th August.

On a weekend that Carlow gracefully bowed out of the All Ireland S.F.C. qualifiers with 5 Tinryland players on board there was joy and success for other sections of our club.

Pride of place must go to the handball section who captured the All Ireland Junior B 60 x 40 team of 4 title in Clogh Co. Kilkenny on Saturday. The recently crowned Leinster champions defeated Kingscourt from Cavan in the semi-final on a scoreline of 69 aces to 38. In the final they were drawn against Williamstown handball club from Galway and finished with a very comfortable 62 to 20 victory to take their first All- Ireland 60x30 title. The winning team members were Martin Mullins, Murth Doyle, Steve Doyle, Kevin Barrett and David Donovan. The club already captured the Junior 40 x 20 title earlier this year

It was a joyous weekend also for the Tinryland U15 football squad that travelled to London to take part in the London G.A.A. board development tournament played at the North London Shamrocks ground in Tottenhall.  Tinryland were very impressive throughout the weekend and finished the competition unbeaten. Well done to the team and their mentors Bernard Mullen, Peter Scully, Brian McGuire, Michael Mullen and Peter Whelan who enjoyed the great hospitality extended by their London hosts.

A memorable championship and league season for Carlow senior footballers came to an end on Saturday last when the aristocrats of Tyrone overcame the men from Barrowside. Tinryland is very proud of the efforts and the progress made this year by the Carlow team and management and is delighted that 5 Tinryland players namely Paul Broderick, Cian Lawlor, Danny Moran, Shane Redmond and Diarmaid Walshe played a significant part in Carlow’s extended championship run and their promotion to Division 3 of the Allianz N.F.L.  The club looks forward to having the players back in the ranks for the upcoming Michael Lyng Motors Carlow S.F.C. campaign which begins at the end of July.

Tinryland G.F.C. extends best wishes to the Carlow senior hurlers for their Joe McDonagh Cup final in Croke Park on Sunday and to the Carlow ladies football team that play Louth in the Leinster J.F.C. final in Netwatch Cullen park at 12 noon on Sunday also.  Bennekerry –Tinryland ladies club will be represented on the Carlow panel by Roisin Byrne, Nuala Mohan, Leah Mullins, Ciara Nolan, Deirdre Tomlinson and Elaine Ware.  On Sunday last the Bennekerry-Tinryland senior ladies advanced to the next round of the Carlow S.F.C. with an emphatic 8-22 to 1-2 win over Rathvilly. First half goals from Niamh Kelly (2) and Leah Mullins paved the way before a Sinead Hayden hat trick and further goals from Mullins and Eimear Daly killed the game as a contest long before the final whistle.

The main championship action at club level this week is the 2nd round of the Carlow J.F.C. (B). Tinryland who defeated O’Hanrahans in round 1 two week’s ago travel to Pairc Ui Bhrian to take on Eire Og. This game has an 8 p.m. throw in.

Junior Football
On the field of play the Junior (B) team opened their championship campaign with a comfortable win over O’Hanrahans at a windy Rathcrogue on Wednesday last. In a low scoring first half Tinryland trailed their town opponents by 2 points at half time but with wind advantage enjoyed a much better 2nd half. Goals mid- way through the second half from Richard Whyte and Gary Moran and another near the end from Dean Farrell enabled the men in blue and white hoops to enjoy a 10 point victory. Tinryland’s next game in the J.F.C. (B) will be away to Eire Og on Wednesday 27th June.

Carlow Seniors
Best wishes to Paul Broderick, Cian Lawlor, Danny Moran, Shane Redmond, Diarmaid Walshe and the rest of the Carlow team in their clash with Tyrone on Saturday next at Netwatch Cullen Park in round 2 of the All Ireland qualifiers.

The past week was a hectic one on and off the field. On Friday last months of planning came to fruition when the club honoured the successful 1967, 68 and 69 teams. Former players travelled from many parts for the occasion which proved to be thoroughly enjoyable. Chairman Michael Murphy welcomed the guests back to the club after so many years and after the sit down meal a reeling in the years type montage was shown including tributes to departed players. M.C. for the night was club P.R.O. Eamonn Byrne while Liam Byrne chairman of the organising committee and 1967 captain and David Power captain in 69 made a special presentation to Joe O’Gorman who trained all the successful Tinryland teams of that era. The other members of the organising committee were David Byrne and Pat Foster.

A large number of club supporters travelled on 2 buses for last Sundays Leinster S.F.C. semi-final with Laois in Croke Park. Despite losing to our neighbours the club is very proud of the efforts of the Carlow team this year and the 5 Tinryland men Paul Broderick, Cian Lawlor, Danny Moran, Shane Redmond and Diarmaid Walshe. Hopefully Carlow can get back to winning ways when Tyrone travel to Netwatch Cullen park for round 2 of the qualifiers on Saturday 23rd June.

On the field of play at club level Tinryland failed to advance to the S.F.L. division 1 semi- final when Old Leighlin came from behind to take the points in the final league fixture at Molaise Park on Tuesday last. Tinryland showed much improved form from their previous game in Rathvilly but having led for 50 minutes had to give way to a strong home side who prevailed by six points in the end after scoring 3 goals in the space of 10 minutes..

The first championship action of the year will take place tomorrow Wednesday when the Junior (B) team take on O’Hanrahans in the J.F.C. (B) in Rathcrogue at 8 p.m.

Congratulations to Tinryland’s Paul Broderick who was named the G.P.A. player of the month for May following his outstanding display against Kildare in the Leinster S.F.C.

Congratulations to the handball section of the club on winning the Leinster (B) 60 x 30 championship when beating Ballymitty of Wexford in the final. The game which was played in Tinahely went down to the wire with both teams level on 101 aces after 3 games. The doubles decider then went Tinryland’s way when the Carlow club won 21 to 8 to advance to the All Ireland semi-final. The Tinryland team members were: Martin Mullins, Murt Doyle, Steve Doyle, Kevin Barrett and David Donovan

The big event in the club this coming weekend is the 50 years reunion function for the 1967 and 1969 u21 team and the senior league winning squad of 1968.

Months of planning has gone into organising this event and former players are travelling back to Tinryland from many places for the occassion. The reunion will start at 7.30 p.m. on Friday next 8th June with the sit down meal due to commence at 8 p.m.

All roads lead to Croke Park on Sunday next 10th June   when Carlow take on Laois in the Leinster S.F.C. semi- final at 2 p.m.  Many Tinryland supporters are intending to travel to Dublin for the game and a bus will leave the club at 10 a.m. on Sunday morning. There are a limited number of seats still available on the bus and further details can be got from Pat Whelan at 0862374297.

Tinryland G.F.C. wishes good look to the Carlow team and management including the 5 Tinryland players Paul Broderick, Cian Lawlor, Danny Moran, Shane Redmond and Diarmaid Walshe. 

On the playing front the club second string maintained their interest in the S.F.L. division 3 with an impressive victory over Palatine in Rathcrogue on Thursday last. An early goal from veteran corner forward Niall Barrett set the boys in blue and white on the road and 2 quickfire second half goals from Gary Fields and David Townsend gave the home side their second victory in the division with one game remaining against Leighlinbridge.

The game with Leighlinbridge on Saturday last resulted in another comfortable win for the men in blue and white. Goals in each half from Niall Barrett and David Townsend laid the foundation for victory but with other results not in Tinryland’s favour it looks like the team has lost out on making the knockout stages in division 3.

At senior level Tinryland will play Old Leighlin in Molaise Park this Tuesday evening at 8 p.m. with both teams needing a win to maintain their interest in the S.F.L division 1. 

The club championship fixtures were published recently. In the Michael Lyng motors S.F.C. Tinryland will begin their quest for a 16th senior title on w/e 22nd July when Palatine will provide the opposition. The second game for Tinryland in group 1 will be against Rathvilly on w/e 5th August while the group stages will conclude on w/e 26th August against Old Leighlin. 

In the J.F.C. (A) Tinryland will play St Patrick’s on w/e 22nd July followed by games with Leighlinbridge on w/e 5th August and against Naomh Eoin on week ending 26th August.

In the J.F.C. (B) which starts in June Tinryland will open their campaign at home to O’Hanrahans on Wednesday 13th June followed by games with Eire Og on Wednesday 27th June and against Kildavin/Clonegal on Wednesday 18th July.

The club in association with Tinryland N.S. staged the 2nd annual Seamus Walshe football tournament for the pupils on Thursday last. The event in memory of the late long serving officer Seamus Walshe was a huge success and was blessed with ideal weather conditions. The winning captain Bobby Doyle was presented with the cup by Jimmy Walshe son of the late Seamus. Tinryland G.F.C. extends thanks to the Walshe family for their generous sponsorship of this very popular tournament

The big news this week is Carlow’s sensational progress to the Leinster S.F.C. semi- final following their victory over Kildare in O’Connor Park Tullamore on Sunday. Tinryland supplied no less than five players to last Sunday’s team with Paul Broderick scorer of eleven points, Shane Redmond and Diarmaid Walshe making up the starting fifteen. Early in the second half Danny Moran and Cian Lawlor were introduced into the fray. A large contingent of supporters from the club travelled to the Offaly venue including a bus load of Tinryland followers. Plans are already in train for the Leinster semi-final in Croke Park on Sunday 10th June when our neighbours Laois will be the opponents.

Not to be outdone the Carlow ladies had a comprehensive win over Kilkenny in the TG4 Leinster J.F.C. at the Dunmore centre of Excellence on Sunday evening. Bennekerry-Tinryland were represented on the starting fifteen by Roisin Byrne and Nuala Mohan while Leah Mullins was introduced as a substitute early in the second half.      

It was a quiet week on the playing front with only one adult team in action. The Junior (B) team wound up their division 4 campaign in a remarkable game with St. Andrew’s on Wednesday last. Despite scoring 5-10 which would win many a game Tinryland had to give way to the Bagenalstown outfit who scored 8-11 during the hour. This scoreline must constitute some kind of a scoring record for adult football in Carlow with referee Billy Fanning from Ballon recording a total of 34 scores in his notebook during a highly entertaining and sporting game played in great spirits on a beautiful pitch on a lovely evening.

Tinryland seniors will wind up their division 1 league campaign away to Old Leighlin on Sunday next at 7 p.m. To have any chance of making the league semi-final Tinryland must win this game against the former Co. champions.

Preparations are almost complete for the re-union function of the 1967,1968, and 1969 U21 and senior teams. This event will take place in the clubhouse on Friday 8th June at 7.30 p.m. Invitations have been issued to over 50 former players or their representatives in the case of those deceased and confirmation of attendance should be made to Liam Byrne 086 3526264 or e mail by Friday next 1st June.

A Table quiz in aid of the juvenile section will be held on Friday 15th June at 8 p.m. Entry fee is €10 for adults and €5 for juveniles.
