With the league now past the half way stage the most successful team to date has been the seniors who have won all four matches played in division 1. Having received a walk over from O’Hanrahans at the weekend the senior team has 2 matches remaining against Old Leighlin and Eire Og as they attempt to win the league for the first time in 49 years.

The Junior A team competing in division 3 came up against a strong Fenagh outfit at J.J. Hogan Park on Tuesday last. Tinryland were competitive in the first half and only trailed by 2 points at the interval. In the second half with the advantage of a strong breeze and the influence of Co. senior player Sean Murphy, Fenagh extended their advantage to run out comfortable winners. Best for Tinryland who are back in action at home to Old Leighlin this Tuesday evening 2nd May were Ciaran Byrne, Dylan Byrne, Shane O’Neill, Paul Doyle and John Jackson.

The No. 2 junior team competing in division 4 are still seeking a first win and will play away to St. Andrew’s on tomorrow Wednesday 3rd May in McGrath Park at 7.15 p.m.
