There was great interest in Tinryland G.F.C. on Tuesday last when the R.T.E. radio 1 John Murray show visited the club along with Kerry G.A.A. legend Paidi O’Se.

The purpose of the visit was to record a coaching session with the clubs senior team which will be broadcast on tomorrow Wednesday  between 9.a.m. and 10  part of the programmes ‘long shots’ series.

During the visit programme presenter John Murray conducted interviews with long serving club members Jim Deane, Paddy Regan, Tom Doyle and Brendan Hayden.

Paidi O.Se who made the 4 hour journey from his home in Ventry spoke at length with the senior panel offering many tips on how they can improve their game. While in Tinryland 8 time All Ireland medal winner O’Se also spoke with the clubs U14 squad who have qualified for this years All Ireland feile in Cork and with the U16 squad who are going well in this years championship. Tinryland captain John Paul Moore was also interviewed by John Murray as was promising senior player Cormac Breathnach who took part in an interview conducted as gaeilge with Paidi O’Se. After the onfield activities the visitors were formally welcomed to Tinryland in the clubhouse and both John Murray and Paidi O Se spoke and were presented with a club history book by current chairman Peenie Whelan.

Tinryland was selected to take part in the show from over 100 applicants after former chairman Mick Murphy applied on behalf of the club to partake in the series. Tinryland  has won 15 Carlow senior championships during its 123 year history and last won the title in 1981.

During the course of this years championship the show will be providing the club with coaching together with drumming up local support for the senior team and airing updates on crunch games throughout the campaign. Tinryland’s first outing will be against Kilbride in mid July.
