The coming week is an important one for both the senior men’s and womens teams in the championship. On this coming Thursday 13th September at Netwatch Cullen Park at 7.45 p.m. the senior ladies will be seeking a 4th consecutive Carlow S.F.C. when they take on last year’s finallists Old Leighlin in the 2018 final. The ladies team have prepared well under Alan Doyle and Gregg Murphy and will be hoping for another title which will then qualify the team for the Leinster club championship.

On Saturday next at Netwatch Cullen park at 6.30 p.m. the senior men’s team will contest the quarter final of the Michael Lyng Motors Carlow S.F.C. against Mount Leinster Rangers. Tinryland finished 2nd in the group stages having defeated Palatine and Old Leighlin and losing by 2 points to Rathvilly. Hopes are high for another victory on Saturday in order to progress to the semi- final which will take place one week later.

The U17 team put up a great performance in the round robin series when they defeated St. Patricks in another thrilling match last week at Bro Leo Park. Tinryland got off to a great start with 3 points from Evan McGuire, Maurice Lawler and Cormac O’Brien and when the latter rattled the St. Pats net Tinryland looked to be well on their way to victory. St Patricks staged a great comeback before half time and only the minimum separated the teams at the interval. In the early stages of the second half both teams had dominant spells but Tinryland eventually prevailed by 3 points with excellent scores from Maurice Lawler, Evan McGuire, Jonah Dunne and Cormac O’Brien. The boys in blue and white who will play St. Andrews in their next game had outstanding performers in Jack Murphy, Aongus O’Se, Cormac McElligott, Sam Byrne, Cian Nicholl and Dannan Burke together with the main scorers McGuire, Lawler, Dunne and O’Brien.

Tinryland G.F.C. is this year celebrating 130 years in existence and will be part of the Carlow G.A.A. photographic and aertafact exhibition which is planned for the Fairgreen shopping centre from Friday 5th October to Sunday 14th October. Carlow G.A.A. is also celebrating 130 years in existence this year and the upcoming exhibition will feature all strands of the GAA since the foundation of the organisation in Carlow in 1888.
