There was a large attendance at the Tinryland G.F.C. Annual general meeting held in the clubhouse on Monday 4th December. Outgoing officers Mick Murphy (Chairman) and Enda Dunican (Secretary) reflected on a mixed year in 2017 with the winning of the U21 championship the highlight. Treasurer Ger Broderick produced a very comprehensive financial report that highlighted the huge cost and large effort it takes to keep a club of Tinryland’s size alive while the meeting was also addressed by club president Brendan Hayden. Looking forward to 2018 chairman Mick Murphy asked for an even greater effort from both players and committee stating that it was his greatest wish to see the senior team successful once again. It is now 37 years since Tinryland won a Carlow S.F.C.  Tributes were paid to the juvenile section of the club for their great efforts in 2017 while the club members who passed away during the year were also remembered at the meeting.
