It was a quiet week on the playing front as the club prepares for the concluding stages of the Michael Lyng Motors Carlow S.F.C. quarter final with Mount Leinster Rangers. That game has been fixed for Saturday 15th September at Netwatch Cullen Park at 6.30 p.m.

On the field of play the U17 team was involved in a thrilling game with our neighbours Palatine on Monday last. Palatine shaded matters in the first half and led by 2-4 to 0-4 at half time. Early second half points from Cian Nicholl and Maurice Lawler heralded a Tinryland revival and further points from Lawler, Evan McGuire and Cormac O’Brien kept the momentum going with only a single point separating the teams entering the closing stages. Try as they might Tinryland could not find the equaliser and they lost out to the Cnoc Arda boys on a scoreline of 2-9 to 0-14. Outstanding for the boys in blue and white were Jonah Dunne, Dannan Burke, Sam Byrne, Maurice Lawler, Evan McGuire, Paddy Regan and Cormac O’Brien. Tinryland played St. Patricks in the 2nd match of the round robin last evening Monday with the final game against Muinebheag fixed for Monday next 10th September. Tinryland U11’s will play Rathvilly in division 1 on Saturday next 8th September in Tinryland at 4 p.m. followed by another game with Mount Leinster Rangers on Saturday 15th September at 4 p.m.  

The U8 and U10 squads completed their season with a successful outing to the Go games blitz which took place in the training centre on Saturday last. Well done to the coaches and the parents of both teams for their efforts this year. Over 50 young players are currently involved with both squads which bodes well for the future. Aoibh Gardiner and James Keogh were the winners of the Tinryland Juvenile G.F.C. golden goal competition based on the time of the first goal in last Sunday’s All Ireland football final.

In ladies football Bennekerry –Tinryland senior team is preparing for their 4th consecutive S.F.C. final. That game against Old Leighlin has been fixed for Thursday 13th September at a venue still to be decided. The BT minor ladies have also reached the Co. final and will play Eire Og on this coming Friday 7th September.
