The past week was a hectic one on and off the field. On Friday last months of planning came to fruition when the club honoured the successful 1967, 68 and 69 teams. Former players travelled from many parts for the occasion which proved to be thoroughly enjoyable. Chairman Michael Murphy welcomed the guests back to the club after so many years and after the sit down meal a reeling in the years type montage was shown including tributes to departed players. M.C. for the night was club P.R.O. Eamonn Byrne while Liam Byrne chairman of the organising committee and 1967 captain and David Power captain in 69 made a special presentation to Joe O’Gorman who trained all the successful Tinryland teams of that era. The other members of the organising committee were David Byrne and Pat Foster.

A large number of club supporters travelled on 2 buses for last Sundays Leinster S.F.C. semi-final with Laois in Croke Park. Despite losing to our neighbours the club is very proud of the efforts of the Carlow team this year and the 5 Tinryland men Paul Broderick, Cian Lawlor, Danny Moran, Shane Redmond and Diarmaid Walshe. Hopefully Carlow can get back to winning ways when Tyrone travel to Netwatch Cullen park for round 2 of the qualifiers on Saturday 23rd June.

On the field of play at club level Tinryland failed to advance to the S.F.L. division 1 semi- final when Old Leighlin came from behind to take the points in the final league fixture at Molaise Park on Tuesday last. Tinryland showed much improved form from their previous game in Rathvilly but having led for 50 minutes had to give way to a strong home side who prevailed by six points in the end after scoring 3 goals in the space of 10 minutes..

The first championship action of the year will take place tomorrow Wednesday when the Junior (B) team take on O’Hanrahans in the J.F.C. (B) in Rathcrogue at 8 p.m.

Congratulations to Tinryland’s Paul Broderick who was named the G.P.A. player of the month for May following his outstanding display against Kildare in the Leinster S.F.C.

Congratulations to the handball section of the club on winning the Leinster (B) 60 x 30 championship when beating Ballymitty of Wexford in the final. The game which was played in Tinahely went down to the wire with both teams level on 101 aces after 3 games. The doubles decider then went Tinryland’s way when the Carlow club won 21 to 8 to advance to the All Ireland semi-final. The Tinryland team members were: Martin Mullins, Murt Doyle, Steve Doyle, Kevin Barrett and David Donovan
