This year’s Tinryland parish magazine “Reaching Out” which will be available from the weekend before Christmas is a full colour 44-page bumper production marking its 20th birthday.
Once again the editor Maureen Byrne, and Clem Delaney on design, have combined to produce a gem highlighting a very special year for the parish of St. Joseph.
This year’s edition is packed with 140 photos with many featuring that special day in June when Tinryland secured a runner up position in the IPB Co-Operation Ireland Pride of Place national competition.
Regular contributor Liam Byrne this year features recently retired local politician and former senator Jim Townsend from Ballybar in his annual extensive people profile.
Reaching Out also features an article on the hugely successful Andy Murphy Memorial Week which raised over €30,000 for the County Carlow Hospice Fund.
Local priests Fr Tom Little and Fr Sean Hyland take the opportunity to send greetings to their parishioners while there are also contributions from Tinryland natives Fr Eamonn Hayden (Zambia) and Fr PJ Byrne (PP of Kilcock).
Sport as usual figures highly and there is a full record of a mixed year for Tinryland GFC when the U21 title was won, and a ground breaking 2015 for the Ladies Gaelic Football Club who won a first ever Carlow SFC title.
Other articles with a sporting flavour include reports from the local handball and soccer clubs while organisations such as Tinryland ICA, Senior Citizens Committee and national school all feature in this year’s magazine.
“Reaching Out” is available for €5 in Deane’s of Tinryland and Barrack St Carlow and also in St. Joseph’s Church Tinryland and at Tinryland GAA club. It is certain to be popular as a stocking filler for the yuletide celebrations.
