The senior team’s involvement in this year’s Michael Lyng Motors Carlow S.F.C. evaporated in the rain at Netwatch Cullen Park on Saturday last when Eire Og proved to be that bit better than the men in blue and white hoops in the quarter final. Despite opening the scoring in the 2nd minute with a point from the returning Diarmaid Walshe, Tinryland never headed the eventual winners in a game dominated by both defences. Eire Og enjoyed more possession in the first half but when referee David Hughes sounded the half time whistle Tinryland were only 2 points in arrears. Early in the 2nd half Eire Og extended their advantage to 4 points but a strong period of play from Tinryland saw the gap close to 2 points once again by the 50th minute. Tinryland were then awarded a penalty with 10 minutes remaining but when Paul Brodericks effort went over the bar for just a point Eire Og were given a lifeline which they fully accepted and they went on to advance to the semi- final on a scoreline of 0-13 to 0-7. The wait for another senior championship will now have to wait for another year and it is now 37 years since the club last won the Carlow S.F.C.

It was not a good week overall for the club as the 2nd junior team and the minors were both forced to concede walk overs in their respective games to O’Hanrahans and Eire Og.

The annual juvenile presentation night has been fixed for Friday 29th September while the club lotto still stands at 10,000 euro and is held every Monday night at 10 p.m.

The ladies team that recently won the Carlow S.F.C. will take on Meath opponents in the first round of the Leinster championship on Saturday 7th October at a Meath venue.
