Pride of place this week goes to the senior ladies team that won their 3rd consecutive Carlow S.F.C.title against Old Leighlin on Sunday last at Netwatch Cullen Park. In front of a good crowd Old Leighlin with wind advantage dominated the first half and were well worth their 7 point half time advantage. When referee Jonathan Murphy re-started proceedings there was a complete transformation in the Bennekerry-Tinryland fortunes and by the 41st minute the teams were all square following 2 early 2nd half goals from Elaine Ware and Lauren Dwyer. Further points from Ware, Roisin Byrne and Aoibhin Webb put their team 3 points ahead with 10 minutes remaining and the icing was applied to the cake when Webb and second half sub Stephanie Dunne crashed home late goals to give the B.T. ladies the Brady catering Cup for the 3rd year in a row having accounted for Naomh Eoin and St. Fortcherns in the 2015 and 2016 finals. The hipanel was as follows: Shannen Cotter, Andrea Jeaney, Leanne Corcoran, Jane Bullen, Alex McNeill, Deirdre Tomlinson captain, Emma O’Regan, Stephane Kehoe, Cliodhna Ni She, Lauren Dwyer, Elaine Ware, Leah Mullins, Aoibhin Webb, Roisin Byrne, Lauren McGrath, Katie Hickey, Ruth Bermingham, Michelle McDermott,, Niamh Kelly, Ciara Nolan, Aisling Kelly, Stephaine Dunne, Doireann Walshe, Niamh O’Regan, Moira McElligott, Eimer Daly, Sinead Hayden, Kayleigh Kelly, Rachel Kavanagh, Katie Doyle, Katie Bullen, Audrey Murphy, Amy Doyle, Amanda Kinsella.

The juvenile section of the club held a successful table quiz on Friday last. 21 teams took part in the event with juvenile club chairman Bernard Mullen the question master assisted by club secretary Lorraine McGuire. On the playing front there was good news at last for the club when the U14 team advanced to the final of the Fairgreen shopping centre U14 division 2 final with an exciting extra time win over Naomh Eoin on Monday last. Tinryland went into the game as underdogs having lost to the same opposition on a number of occasions this year. After a poor start Tinryland trailed the Myshall boys at half time but after a storming 2nd half the sides finished level after 2 excellent goals from Cian McCreanor and Seamus McCullough in addition to great points via Conor Carew, James Hayden and Alex Kelliher. Tinryland trailed again in the early stages of extra time but another Cian McCreanor goal and further points from Seamus McCullough, Cillian Fagan, Alex Kelliher and Jamie Fitzgerald sealed a great victory for the boys in blue and white who now advance to play O’Hanrahans in the final.

The new security fence around the club is now complete and it is hoped that the spate of recent break ins will now cease.
