The past week saw the Carlow team finally bow out of the All Ireland championship after a gallant effort against Monaghan. The 3 Tinryland players involved namely Paul Broderick, Danny Moran and Shane Redmond will now return to the club in preparation for the opening game in the Michael Lyng Motors S.F.C. against champions Palatine at the end of July.

At junior level Tinryland lost out to a strong Fenagh team in the S.F.L. division 3 semi-final at the training centre on Wednesday last. Trailing by 1-6 to 0-1 at half time Tinryland faced an uphill battle in the second half. Despite eventually losing by 7 points Tinryland showed improved form in the final 30 minutes and remained competitive scoring 7 points via Padraig Whelan, James McGrath (4), Keelan Gaffney and Peter Hennessy. The junior team will begin championship action on Tuesday 8th August when Old Leighlin will provide the opposition. Leighlinbridge and St. Patricks are the other 2 teams in our group in the J.F.C. (A).

The U21 team now know who their opponents in the semi-final in early August will be after Palatine defeated Eire Og in the U21 quarter final on Sunday evening. The U21 and senior championship games between the 2 neighbours Tinryland and Palatine should provide cracking entertainment for both sets of followers when the games take place in early August. The Tinryland U16 team will hope to maintain their good recent form when they take on O’Hanrahans in round 8 of the Fairgreen Shopping Centre U16 division 2 on this coming Friday 21st July.

It was a busy week for the ladies section of the club. At juvenile level the girls from Bennekerry-Tinryland tasted success at u12 level when they defeated Clonmore in the U12 (A) final. The Bennekerry-Tinryland U14 team defeated Ballinkillen in the (B) final which took place on Thursday last. At senior level Bennekerry-Tinryland ladies who are the reigning champions were defeated by a lively Old Leighlin team at the training centre on Sunday last. This defeat means that the BT ladies must win their remaining game against Palatine if they are to remain in this year’s championship having won the title in 2015 and 2016.

Tinryland G.F.C. will host a Feile acknowledgement night this coming Saturday 22nd July for members of Setanta and Tinryland clubs in recognition of the tremendous work done at the recent All Ireland Feile hurling event that was hosted by Setanta in Rathcrogue. The event which includes live music and a BBQ commences at 9 p.m.
