Despite the final scoreline of 4-11 to 0-12 a depleted Tinryland produced a competitive performance against Co. champions Eire Og in the S.F.L. division 1 at Pairc Ui Bhrian on Sunday evening. For various reasons due to other commitments and injuries Tinryland could muster only 17 players for this 3rd round tie against the reigning champions. Two early Eire Og goals gave Tinryland a mountain to climb but by half time the men in blue and white were still very much in contention following points from Diarmaid Walshe, Niall Lowry, Paul Doyle, and Shane Redmond. Ten minutes into the 2nd half the Eire Og lead was reduced to 3 points following 2 Niall Lowry points. Tinryland were then dealt a blow when influential midfielder Mark Morrissey was forced off with a knee injury and with only one outfield sub available Eire Og added two further goals to their tally to remain unbeaten in the senior league. Tinryland’s next outing in division 1 will be against Old Leighlin on Tuesday 24th April.

In division 4 Tinryland lost out to Fenagh at Hogan park on Wednesday last while in division 3 the game against Old Leighlin which was due to be played at the weekend will now take place in Molaise park  Old Leighlin at 8.15 p.m. on this coming Thursday 19th April. The division 4 team will play Eire Og in round 4 on tomorrow Wednesday 18th April in Pairc Ui Bhrian at 7.15 p.m.

On Sunday next Tinryland U21 team will contest the Co. semi-final against Michael Davits at netwatch Cullen park at 7.30 p.m. This will be part of a double header with the other semi-final between Palatine and Eire Og set for 6 p.m. 

In ladies football Bennekerry-Tinryland opened their league campaign with a comfortable win over newly promoted Eire Og in Rathcrogue on Sunday evening last. Among the scorers for B.T. were Niamh Kelly, Elaine Ware, Cliodhna Ni Se, Roisin Byrne, Nuala Mohan and Leah Mullins. This game was played at the same time as the men’s senior game between the two clubs. Surely in this day and age an arrangement to play both games at the same venue could have been made to accommodate supporters of both clubs who would have wished to attend.

There was a very good turnout from the club for the clean- up Tinryland project on Saturday last. All the litter that had accumulated over the year was cleared by the many volunteers from the community and it was agreed that the project in conjunction with Carlow Co. Council, Tinryland tidy towns committee and KCLR radio was a huge success.

Congratulations to club members Marcus Lawler and Adam Murphy on their performances at the Irish Universities track and Field championships at the Mary Peters track in Belfast over the weekend. Marcus retained his 200m title in 21.07 and finished 2nd in the 100m in 10.73 while Adam recorded a P.B. of 49.81 and 49.36 in both the heats and final of a hot men’s 400m.Both lads helped I.T. Carlow to the silver medals in the sprint relay behind D.C.U.

Tickets are now on sale for the pre Leinster championship football forum to be held in Tinryland G.F.C. on Saturday 5th May at 8.30 p.m. The panel will include the new director general of the G.A.A. Tom Ryan, Carlow football manager Turlough O’Brien, Leinster council chairman Jim Bolger a native of Carlow and Carlow football legends Mark Carpenter O’Hanrahans and Tommy Dwyer Tinryland.

Tinryland G.F.C. hosted a very successful table quiz in aid of Tinryland N.S. on Friday last 13th April when 43 teams of 4 took part. b
