SFL Div1 Palatine V Tinryland Friday 5th April

posted 9 Apr 2019, 04:22 by

Tinryland seniors picked up their first point of their league campaign in an entertaining match against their neighbours Palatine at Palatine G.F.C on Friday Night. Conditions were poor but that did not stop the home team from taking control. With the help of two goals, it left the home side leading 2-6 to 0-4 at the half time break. The 8 point deficit left Tinryland supporters wondering how their team would respond in the second half given that their past two second half performances were very poor. But credit to the Tinryland lads, they upped their game. Goals from Shane Redmond and Glen Doyle left the visitors only 2 points down. After a high ball was launched towards their goal, the Palatine defence was unable to control the situation and the ball ended up in the back of the net. Tinryland then took the lead for the first time in the match with time almost up. However Palatine had one more chance in the dying stages after Tinryland gifted them the ball. The home team pressed forward and kicked the equalising point. A fair result. Final score Palatine 2-10, Tinryland 3-7. Special thanks to Palatine G.F.C who donated their gate takings to the Carlow Hospice. The Andy Murphy Shield remains in Palatine Clubhouse.

Tinryland v St. Martins 18/3/19

 By David Byrne

Tinryland opened their U17 Championship by hosting St. Martins on an afternoon perfect for football. The home side opened the scoring with a fine point by Killian Fagan after some excellent interplay by the forwards. St. Martins quickly equalised and then took the lead as the home defence took a while to settle into the game. A second score from Killian Fagan, followed immediately by a point from Paddy Regan moved Tinryland into the lead, but the away side again put over to level the match. A reorganisation in the Tinryland midfield allowed Cormac McElligott to storm up the field on one of his typically powerful runs and blast into the back of the away sides goal. St. Martins defence though stood firm at this stage and began to prevent the normally fast passing of the Tinryland forwards. Then with a quick break from defence, Martins grabbed a point, followed shortly after by a second to pull within one score. Tinryland keeper Daniel Donegan pulled off two wonderful saves to keep the home side in the lead as Martins pushed for scores. As the Tinryland defence began to dominate and get on tip of the away attack, it allowed breaks up field by wing backs Matthew Gleeson and Adam Fennelly which pulled the away team around the field. The final score of the half came from Cormac McElligott as he put over for a point after some patient play as the Tinryland forwards moved the ball waiting for the shooting opportunity.

Half time score Tinryland 1-4 St. Martins 0-5

The first score of the second half went to St. Martins as they attacked straight from the start. As they pushed, the home defenders, led by full back Daire Brophy and Keith Moran in the centre held Martins to a single point. Tinryland, now sensing that there were scores for the taking began to attack at will and from deep, Kian Dooley carrying from corner back began an attack that led to the home sides second goal of the game as Killian Fagan worked a shooting chance and coolly slotted home. Straight from the kick out, Tinryland grabbed another goal, as a mix up in the Martins defence allowed Paddy Regan in to stick the ball in the net. Darragh Brennan, playing at full forward had been a selfless provider for the Tinryland team all game and finally decided to grab a score for himself as he banged over a point. A point for St. Martins kept them in the game but again the home defence kept them at bay and prevented too many scoring chances. Then Martins were awarded a penalty and a chance to close the gap, with the Tinryland keeper in fine form though this was not a certain score and as the penalty hit the post and was scrambled clear the Tinryland players felt it might be their day. With both sides tiring and changes been made from the benches, both defences seemed determined to keep the scoring down as points were traded. The final score of the game came in injury time as Dean Quinlan slipped into the Martins box and blasted into the top corner to grab the fourth goal of the game.

A fine win to open the Championship and a fine performance from the whole squad.

Final score Tinryland 4-9 St. Martins 0-9

Tinryland: Daniel Donegan, Harry Fennelly, Daire Brophy, Mark Mullen, Adam Fennelly, Cormac McElligott(1-2), Matthew Gleeson, Cian Nicholl(0-1), Keith Moran, Michael Hosey, Paddy Regan(1-2), Padraig Thompson, James Hayden, Darragh Brennan(0-1), Killian Fagan(1-3).

J.F.C. (A) Relegation Match Tinryland V Asca

                Tinryland   1-11                                                          Asca 1-4

Tinryland avoided the trapdoor into Junior (B) for the 2nd successive year with a comfortable win over their neighbours Asca at the training centre on Friday last.

Asca  who included a number of former Tinryland players in their line up were first on the scoreboard when midfielder Conor Byrne pointed after 2 minutes but this was to prove their only return in the first half as Tinryland dominated possession but missed numerous chances to wrap up the game at this stage. Padraig Townsend opened the Tinryland account in the 3rd minute and the men in hoops were never headed after Ciaran Larkin successfully converted a free in the 9th minute. Townsend stretched the Tinryland advantage to 2 points in the 10th minute after good play by Larkin but the men from Rathcrogue were way off target on numerous occasions in that opening half and only had a 4 point advantage at the break after further points from the hard working Dean Farrell and Ronan Curran. Asca were dealt a major blow just before the interval when goalkeeper Noel O’Reilly received his marching orders for a high tackle on Liam Fitzpatrick having strayed out a long way from his goal in Laois goalie Graham Brody style.

The 2nd half began in identical fashion to the first when Asca doubled their advantage with a Conor Byrne point but Tinryland replied with 3 quick points from Ronan Curran (free), Dean Farrell and Curran again from another dead ball.

Against the run of play Asca then got a major lifeline when full forward Fionn Kehoe crashed the ball past Chris Townsend after a Tinryland defender was dispossessed. A further Asca point from John Dwyer left only 2 points separating the sides at this stage with 15 minutes remaining. These scores seemed to wake up Tinryland from their mini slumber and Dinny Farrell stretched their advantage back out to 3 points after good play by his namesake Dean. Tinryland then made sure of victory when Ronan Curran found the Asca net with 9 minutes remaining after great combination play involving himself, Conor McGrath and Dinny Farrell.

Dean Farrell capped a great evening’s work with another wonderful point in the 53rd minute before John Dwyer for Asca and Ciaran Larkin for Tinryland traded points before referee Brian Deering sounded the full time whistle which saw Tinryland survive in the Junior (A) ranks and Asca drop down to Junior (B) for 2019.

Tinryland had outstanding players in Tommy Dunne, Niall Barrett, Peter Doran, Conor Ryan, Dean Farrell, Dinny Farrell, and Padraig Townsend.

Asca were best served by Ollie Keating, Govonor Ogbonaya, Conor O’Brien, Conor Byrne, John Dwyer and Fionn Kehoe.

Tinryland: Chris Townsend, Liam Fitzpatrick, Peter Doran, Niall Barrett, Ciaran Townsend, Conor Ryan, Tommy Dunne, Dean Farrell 0-3, Conor McGrath, Ciaran Larkin 0-2, Padraig Townsend 0-1, Dinny Farrell 0-1, Ronan Curran 1-3, Mark Dempsey, Eoghan Hosey. Subs: Padraig Delaney, Cathal Whelan.

Tinryland crash out of Michael Lyng Motors S.F.C. after lack lustre performance against M.L.R.

On a day of sporting high’s and low’s and numerous shocks Tinryland supporters were on the receiving end of another shock when the senior team exited the championship against Mount Leinster Rangers on Saturday 15TH September.  Most pundits fancied a Tinryland win in this game after some good performances in what was perceived to be the strongest group. Rangers had barely made the quarter final from group 2 having to rely on a single point difference when they gained their only group point against Kilbride.

The dual club started well holding on to the ball in the opening stages but it was the men in blue and white that got on the scoreboard first when full back John Murphy burst forward to slot over the opening point in the 7th minute. The Borris-Ballymurphy based team opened their account with a point from a 45 by Eddie Byrne in the 13th minute and despite strong play from Tinryland it was Rangers that dominated the next 10 minutes scoring a point from play via John Nolan and another one from an Eddie Byrne free in the 17th minute. Try as they might Tinryland found it difficult to break down the South Carlow team who sometimes had 14 players defending. Glen Doyle with a wonderful point in the 22nd minute finally lifted the siege after good play by Adam Dunne and Tinryland began to enjoy themselves when John Murphy levelled matters after a pass from Conor Byrne.  Five minutes later Tinryland supporters finally began to feel happy when centre back Shane Redmond crashed the ball past the Rangers keeper after good play by Paul Broderick and Conor O’Toole. It got even better in the 29th minute when Cormac Walshe extended the lead to 4 points after a passing movement involving himself, Paul Broderick and Conor O’Toole. The half time whistle then sounded to leave the scoreboard reading 1-4 to 0-3 in Tinryland’s favour

When play resumed it was Rangers that made the early running and veteran Willie Hickey reduced the margin to 3 points after only 30 seconds of play. Tinryland then introduced Cian Moore into action for Glenn Doyle as Eddie Byrne successfully converted another free. Five minutes had elapsed when disaster struck for Tinryland when a kick out went straight to Rangers player James Kelly who seized his opportunity to crash the ball past Ciaran Byrne. With Danny Moran replacing Adam Dunne and Mark Morrissey replacing Conor O’Toole Tinryland went on the attack and Paul Broderick slotted over a free to level matters in the 38th minute. Tinryland then regained the lead in the 40th minute when Niall Lowry pointed after a Danny Moran pass. 2 minutes later Diarmaid Walshe had a gilt edged goal chance for Tinryland but he shot wide as Rangers replaced Luke Roche with Tony Lawlor. Taking heart from Tinryland’s miss Eddie Byrne successfully converted another free and it got even better for the M.L.R. men when Conor Fenlon and Eddie Byrne combined for another goal. Tinryland heads began to drop now and by the 49th minute the ball was back in the Tinryland net as Rangers extended their advantage to 7 points. Cathal Gaffney and Paul Doyle then entered the fray replacing Cormac Walshe and Paul Broderick as Eddie Byrne slotted over another point for an 8 point advantage for Rangers. With 5 minutes remaining Diarmaid Walshe reduced the margin to 7 points when he raised a white flag after M.L.R. sub Chris Nolan was Black carded. Tinryland then threw the kitchen sink at Rangers but the men from the south held out until Shane Redmond found the net with almost the last phase of play.  Final score Mount Leinster Rangers 3-8 Tinryland 2-7.

Tinryland’s wait for a 16th Co. title now extends to 38 years.

Tinryland: Ciaran Byrne, John Paul Moore, John Murphy, Adam Dunne, Rory Doyle, Shane Redmond, Cian Lawlor, Conor Byrne, Glenn Doyle, Cormac Walshe, Matthew O’Toole, Niall Lowry, Paul Broderick, Diarmaid Walshe, Conor O’Toole.
