Tinryland seniors were beaten by Old Leighlin in the Division 1 League on Friday night. It was an equally contested first half as both teams tried to get a stronghold. Two goals by Padraig Whelan left Tinryland, the home side, one point up at the half time break. The half time score was Tinryland 2-4 to Old Leighlin 1-9. As in the previous league match against Ballinabranna, the second half was completely dominated by a strong Old Leighlin side as they proceeded to take control. Strong and tenacious tackling by Old Leighlin helped them take a comfortable lead as they ran out easy winners with a final score-line of Old Leighlin 3-14 to Tinryland 2-07.

Tinryland Div 3 team had a very good win at home on Saturday evening against a gallant Old Leighlin team. Half time score 0-7 to 1-2. Old Leighlin goal coming from a penalty spot.

Tinryland’s Div 4 team lost to Fenagh in a very entertaining match at home on Sunday evening. Tinryland lead by 2 points at half time. The opposition scored 2 goals in the second half to win. Best for Tinryland Cormac O’Brien, Dinny Farrell, Joey Ryan and Conal O’Shea. Final score Tinryland 1-10 Fenagh 4-11.

U15’s got their league off to a great start with a win over O’Hanrahan’s. A good team performance with Josh Donegan and Bobby Doyle working tirelessly & upfront Alex Farrell, Seamus McCullagh & Peter Whelan were always a treat on the opposition goal. Full time score Tinryland 4-1 O’Hanrahan’s 2-4.
