The new season begins in earnest this coming weekend when the seniors play Co champions Palatine in round 1 of the S.F.L. This game is fixed for Tinryland at 7.00p.m. on Sunday next. It will also double up as the Andy Murphy Memorial match. 

The junior team will play Rathvilly in round 1 of the S.F.L. division 3 on Tuesday next 28th March at home at 7 p.m.

Three Tinryland players were part of the Carlow senior team that defeated Waterford in the Allianz National football league on Saturday last at Netwatch Cullen Park. Paul Broderick who finished with a personal tally of 2-6 was joined by Danny Moran and Shane Redmond as Carlow recorded their 2nd victory in this year’s league.

Well done to the Carlow C.B.S. team who won the Leinster post primary schools (B) title at the national sports centre in Abbottstown on Thursday last. Tinryland had 4 players on the panel with Conor Ryan having an outstanding game in defence and Maurice Lawler scoring a vital point after being introduced in extra time. Ruairi Dunbar and Fergal Kelly are the other Tinryland representatives on the C.B.S. panel. The team will now play St Ciarans from Ballygawley Co. Tyrone in the All Ireland semi-final this Wednesday in Abbottstown at 2 p.m.  

All players are reminded that membership fee’s must be paid prior to the start of the leagues this coming weekend.

Hard luck to Tinryland handball player Aaron Geoghegan who lost the All Ireland Junior (B) singles final to Antrim player Jordan O’Neill on Thursday last. Aaron lost 21-17, 21-7 to the Northern player having recently won the Leinster final and the All Ireland semi-final.

Preparations for the family race night on Saturday 1st April are at an advanced stage and all are reminded that sponsorship cards and horses should be submitted before this coming weekend to enable the compilation of the racecard.
