The Michael Lyng Motors Carlow S.F.C. will begin on this coming weekend with a number of mouth- watering fixtures down for decision. Tinryland will begin their campaign in group 1 on next Sunday evening at 7.30 p.m. in Netwatch Cullen Park when the reigning Co. champions Palatine will provide the opposition. These two neighbours last met in early June in the S.F.L. division 1 semi-final with the men from Cnoc Arda edging the men in blue and white by the minimum margin. Next Sundays match will feature at least 8 players including 3 from Tinryland who were involved in Carlow’s extended run in this years All Ireland qualifiers.  The game which is part of a double header at Netwatch Cullen Park is expected to attract a large crowd as both games on the programme are local derbies with Kilbride and Naomh Eoin in action in the curtain raiser in the I.F.C. at 6 p.m.  The other 2 teams in group 1 of the Michael Lyng Motore Carlow S.F.C. are Mount Leinster Rangers and Old Leighlin and Tinryland will play those teams on week ending 13th August and week ending 27th August respectively.

Tinryland minors found the going tough in their 2 opening games in this year’s M.F.C. (A) championship. On Monday last the young Tinryland team went down to a heavy defeat to Palatine in Rathcrogue while on Thursday last Burren Rangers had ten points to spare over the boys in blue and white who could only muster the bare fifteen for the round 2 fixture. Despite these defeats there were some promising Tinryland players on show in both games including Cuan Burke, Tommy Dunne, Ronan Curran, Jonathon Curran, Conor Brennan, Eoin Hosey, Jack Murphy and Brian McGrath. The minors are back in action on this coming Thursday 27th July away to Michael Davits in Ballinabranna at 7.30 p.m. In the U16 grade Tinryland received a walk over from O’Hanrahans in  the Fairgreen shopping centre division 2 and have already qualified for the semi-final with two games remaining against Kildavin-Clonegal on 9th August and against Palatine on 18th August.

A very enjoyable Feile appreciation evening in conjunction with Setanta hurling club took place in Tinryland on Saturday last in recognition of the great work done by both clubs at the recent All Ireland hurling feile that was hosted by Setanta in Tinryland. Speakers on the night included Tinryland chairman Michael Murphy and Setanta chairman Noel O’Neill.

The Tinryland G.F.C. club lotto currently stands at €10,000 and is held every Monday night in the clubhouse at 10 p.m.
