It was another busy week on the playing front with 3 adult teams from the club in championship action. The Senior team produced an outstanding performance on Sunday evening at Netwatch Cullen park when they defeated Mount Leinster Rangers in round 2 of the Michael Lyng Motors S.F.C.  In a low scoring 1st half Tinryland led by 4 points at half time with the crucial score coming from midfielder Peter Hennessy who rattled the Rangers net in the 26th minute after good play from Matthew O’Toole. An early 2nd half goal from Co. player Shane Redmond after good work from James McGrath extended the lead and victory was assured mid- way through the 2nd half when further goals from Hennessy and O’Toole left M.L.R. with a mountain to climb.  Tinryland will now play Old Leighlin in round 3 of the S.F.C. at the end of August.  At junior level the club fielded 2 teams during the week in the Talbot Hotel J.F.C. (A) and (B) championships. The Junior A team was deprived of an opening round win against Old Leighlin at the training centre on Tuesday last when a last minute goal by David Dowling gave the men from Molaise park a dramatic  win after Tinryland had led by 2 points with seconds remaining. Outstanding for Tinryland in this game were Conor Ryan, Adam Dunne, Shane O’Neill, Padraig Whelan and Paul Doyle

The Junior (A) team is back in action on this evening Tuesday 15th August in McGrath Park at 7.30 p.m. against Leighlinbridge.

At Junior (B) level the club struggled to field a team against Naomh Eoin on Wednesday last and were well beaten in the end. Despite the heavy loss there were some encouraging performers in Sean Kirwan, David O’Shea, John Whyte, Niall Bermingham and John Jackson. The Junior (B) team will play Kildavin-Clonegal on tomorrow Wednesday 16th August at 7.45 p.m. in the Training centre Fenagh.

The big game for the club this week will be the U21 (A) final against Rathvilly in Netwatch Cullen park on Friday evening at 8 p.m. Tinryland looked impressive in their quarter final and semi-final wins over Fenagh and Palatine and hopes are high for another u21 title on Friday. Tinryland last won the U21 championship in 2015 and will be seeking their 9th title when they line out against Rathvilly on Friday next. 

At juvenile level the U14 team warmed up for their next championship engagement when they travelled to Co. Louth on Saturday last to play Lannleire  G.F.C. a club that has connections to Tinryland through current vice-chairman John McCullough. The U16 team will wind up their group matches in the Fairgreen Shopping centre division 2 with a game away to Palatine on this coming Friday at 7 p.m.
