The joint dinner dance with Bennekerry-Tinryland ladies club attracted a good attendance to the Seven Oaks hotel on Friday last and proved to be a most enjoyable occasion.

On the night the mens U21 team and the ladies senior squad received 2017 championship medals. Special presentations were made to ladies club members Cliodhna Ni She and Shannen Cotter in recognition of gaining schools interprovincial honours. Tinryland GAA club president Brendan Hayden who is entering his second year in office was presented with a specially commissioned club blazer by club chairman Mick Murphy.

On Sunday last the season at club level began with the local derby between Tinryland and Palatine for S.F.L. division 1 points and also the Andy Murphy shield. Tinryland enjoyed the better of the exchanges in the first half and held a four point advantage at the interval. The second half was a completely different affair that saw the Palatine men score eleven unanswered points in a 20 minute spell. Tinryland could only manage 3 consolation points in that disappointing second half. After the game the Andy Murphy shield was presented to Palatine captain Tomas Kenny by the late Andy Murphy’s daughter Helen Whelan. Tinryland’s next game in the S.F.L. division 1 will be a home tie against Kilbride on Sunday 8th April. The club’s second junior team are in action on tomorrow Wednesday away to O’Hanrahans in division 4 in Deerpark at 7 p.m.

Tinryland footballers Paul Broderick, Danny Moran, Shane Redmond, Cian Lawlor and Diarmaid Walshe were part of the Carlow team that lost narrowly to Laois in the final round of the Allianz N.F.L. division 4 on Sunday last. Tinryland G.F.C. extends best wishes to the lads and the entire Carlow squad and management for the division 4 final against the O’Moore Co. in Croke Park on this coming Saturday. Congratulations to Paul Broderick who was selected as G.A.A. player of the week in the entire country for his display in the previous round of the league against Antrim.

The club also extends congratulations to Tinryland athletic club member Tommy Payne who won a brilliant silver medal at the European Masters indoor championships in Madrid last week. Competing in the 3000m at M60 level Tommy clocked 10 minutes 3 second for the 15 lap event only losing out to the Swedish gold medallist in a sprint finish in a 33 strong line-up. Not bad running for a man about to celebrate his 61st birthday!!
