On the playing front Tinryland teams had mixed success in the past week. The senior team were on the receiving end of a comprehensive loss to Rathvilly at Fr. Ryan Park on Sunday last. The home team were in cruise control for the entire game and won pulling up by 2-18 to 0-4. Tinryland have one remaining game in the league against Old Leighlin. At Junior (A) level Tinryland one again were forced to concede a walkover to Fenagh in the S.F.L. division 3 on Saturday last in Rathcrogue. The Junior (B) team who are seeking a first win will wind up their division 4 campaign at home to St. Andrew’s on tomorrow Wednesday at 7.30 p.m. At junior (A) level Tinryland will host Palatine in the S.F.L. division 3 on Friday next at 8 p.m. 

In the u17 grade Tinryland travelled to Kilbride to take on Burren Rangers on a perfect evening for football. Early points from Paddy Regan, Evan McGuire and Cormac O’Brien gave the boys in blue and white a good base and they led by 3-7 to 0-2 at half time with the goals coming from Cormac McElligott (2) and Aongus O’Shea. Burren Rangers showed at lot of improvement in the 2nd half and got to within a few points of Tinryland before the visitors pulled away again with dominant displays from midfielders Neung Kelly and Cormac McElligott. Good defensive play by Jack Murphy, and Sam Byrne prevented further Burren progress and Tinryland ran out comfortable winners on a scoreline of 5-13 to 3-8. Other outstanding players for Tinryland were Brian McGrath, John Dempsey and Jonah Dunne.

The ladies from Bennekerry-Tinryland began their defence of the Carlow S.F.C. with a 6 point win over last year’s finallists Old Leighlin in the Carlow training centre on Sunday. Goals in each half from Sinead Hayden and Cliodhna Ni Se paved the way for this win. BT had outstanding players in Cliodhna Ni Se, Deirdre Tomlinson, Sinead Hayden, Nuala Mohan, Jane Bullen, Roisin Byrne, Audrey Murphy and Leah Mullins.

Tinryland G.F.C. wishes best of luck to Paul Broderick, Danny Moran, Shane Redmond, Diarmaid Walshe and Cian Lawlor who are part of the Carlow panel that play Kildare in the Leinster S.F.C. in Tullamore on Sunday next.
