On a weekend that Carlow gracefully bowed out of the All Ireland S.F.C. qualifiers with 5 Tinryland players on board there was joy and success for other sections of our club.

Pride of place must go to the handball section who captured the All Ireland Junior B 60 x 40 team of 4 title in Clogh Co. Kilkenny on Saturday. The recently crowned Leinster champions defeated Kingscourt from Cavan in the semi-final on a scoreline of 69 aces to 38. In the final they were drawn against Williamstown handball club from Galway and finished with a very comfortable 62 to 20 victory to take their first All- Ireland 60x30 title. The winning team members were Martin Mullins, Murth Doyle, Steve Doyle, Kevin Barrett and David Donovan. The club already captured the Junior 40 x 20 title earlier this year

It was a joyous weekend also for the Tinryland U15 football squad that travelled to London to take part in the London G.A.A. board development tournament played at the North London Shamrocks ground in Tottenhall.  Tinryland were very impressive throughout the weekend and finished the competition unbeaten. Well done to the team and their mentors Bernard Mullen, Peter Scully, Brian McGuire, Michael Mullen and Peter Whelan who enjoyed the great hospitality extended by their London hosts.

A memorable championship and league season for Carlow senior footballers came to an end on Saturday last when the aristocrats of Tyrone overcame the men from Barrowside. Tinryland is very proud of the efforts and the progress made this year by the Carlow team and management and is delighted that 5 Tinryland players namely Paul Broderick, Cian Lawlor, Danny Moran, Shane Redmond and Diarmaid Walshe played a significant part in Carlow’s extended championship run and their promotion to Division 3 of the Allianz N.F.L.  The club looks forward to having the players back in the ranks for the upcoming Michael Lyng Motors Carlow S.F.C. campaign which begins at the end of July.

Tinryland G.F.C. extends best wishes to the Carlow senior hurlers for their Joe McDonagh Cup final in Croke Park on Sunday and to the Carlow ladies football team that play Louth in the Leinster J.F.C. final in Netwatch Cullen park at 12 noon on Sunday also.  Bennekerry –Tinryland ladies club will be represented on the Carlow panel by Roisin Byrne, Nuala Mohan, Leah Mullins, Ciara Nolan, Deirdre Tomlinson and Elaine Ware.  On Sunday last the Bennekerry-Tinryland senior ladies advanced to the next round of the Carlow S.F.C. with an emphatic 8-22 to 1-2 win over Rathvilly. First half goals from Niamh Kelly (2) and Leah Mullins paved the way before a Sinead Hayden hat trick and further goals from Mullins and Eimear Daly killed the game as a contest long before the final whistle.

The main championship action at club level this week is the 2nd round of the Carlow J.F.C. (B). Tinryland who defeated O’Hanrahans in round 1 two week’s ago travel to Pairc Ui Bhrian to take on Eire Og. This game has an 8 p.m. throw in.
