The Senior team’s wait for another S.F.L. division 1 title will extend to half a century following a one point loss to Co. champions Palatine in the 2017 league semi-final at Netwatch Cullen Park on Friday.

Tinryland looked to have every chance of reaching the final when they led by 5 points mid- way through the opening half but after a period of early dominance by the men in blue and white Palatine rallied to lead by a point at the interval. In the second half both teams were reduced to 14 players as the slippery conditions made it difficult and with seconds remaining Palatine led by the minimum. Tinryland had a great chance of a goal in the dying seconds but the Pal. defence held firm and Tinryland will have to wait 7 weeks for their next competitive fixture against the same opposition in the opening round of the Michael Lyng motors S.F.C.

At Juvenile level Tinryland U14’s edged closer to a semi-final spot in the Fairgreen shopping centre U14 division 2 championship when they defeated St. Patrick’s in Tullow on Friday evening. In a competitive first half the sides were level at half time. In the second half the Tinryland defence was excellent and a match winning performance by Conor Carew who scored 3-2 enabled the boys in blue and white to prevail by 4-5 to 4-2. Other outastanding players for Tinryland were Killian Fagan, Michael Hosey, Cian McCreanor, Josh Donegan, Joe Regan, Seamus McCullough and Alex Kelliher.


The Tinryland G.F.C. Golf classic will be held in Gowran park on Saturday next 17th June commencing at 9 p.m. A limited number of slots are still available for teams of 4. Contact Mark Dempsey, Paul Broderick or Cormac Walshe for further details.

Tinryland G.F.C. will be one of the venues for the All Ireland hurling feile this coming weekend. 14 different clubs from the 4 corners of Ireland will participate in hurling and camogie in Rathcrogue.

Setanta H.C. from Carlow town is the host club for the games at the Tinryland venue. In conjunction with the event there will be traditional music in the club on Friday evening while on Saturday evening the ballad group “One For The Road” will perform.

Well done to Tinryland handball player Martin Mullins on his recent win at the All Ireland hardball championships in Nenagh. Martin defeated Jack O’Shea of Kerry 21-7, 21-5 in the final. This win capped an excellent season for the handball section of the club.
