Despite the final scoreline of 4-11 to 0-12 a depleted Tinryland produced a competitive performance against Co. champions Eire Og in the S.F.L. division 1 at Pairc Ui Bhrian on Sunday evening. For various reasons due to other commitments and injuries Tinryland could muster only 17 players for this 3rd round tie against the reigning champions. Two early Eire Og goals gave Tinryland a mountain to climb but by half time the men in blue and white were still very much in contention following points from Diarmaid Walshe, Niall Lowry, Paul Doyle, and Shane Redmond. Ten minutes into the 2nd half the Eire Og lead was reduced to 3 points following 2 Niall Lowry points. Tinryland were then dealt a blow when influential midfielder Mark Morrissey was forced off with a knee injury and with only one outfield sub available Eire Og added two further goals to their tally to remain unbeaten in the senior league. Tinryland’s next outing in division 1 will be against Old Leighlin on Tuesday 24th April.

In division 4 Tinryland lost out to Fenagh at Hogan park on Wednesday last while in division 3 the game against Old Leighlin which was due to be played at the weekend will now take place in Molaise park  Old Leighlin at 8.15 p.m. on this coming Thursday 19th April. The division 4 team will play Eire Og in round 4 on tomorrow Wednesday 18th April in Pairc Ui Bhrian at 7.15 p.m.

On Sunday next Tinryland U21 team will contest the Co. semi-final against Michael Davits at netwatch Cullen park at 7.30 p.m. This will be part of a double header with the other semi-final between Palatine and Eire Og set for 6 p.m. 

In ladies football Bennekerry-Tinryland opened their league campaign with a comfortable win over newly promoted Eire Og in Rathcrogue on Sunday evening last. Among the scorers for B.T. were Niamh Kelly, Elaine Ware, Cliodhna Ni Se, Roisin Byrne, Nuala Mohan and Leah Mullins. This game was played at the same time as the men’s senior game between the two clubs. Surely in this day and age an arrangement to play both games at the same venue could have been made to accommodate supporters of both clubs who would have wished to attend.

There was a very good turnout from the club for the clean- up Tinryland project on Saturday last. All the litter that had accumulated over the year was cleared by the many volunteers from the community and it was agreed that the project in conjunction with Carlow Co. Council, Tinryland tidy towns committee and KCLR radio was a huge success.

Congratulations to club members Marcus Lawler and Adam Murphy on their performances at the Irish Universities track and Field championships at the Mary Peters track in Belfast over the weekend. Marcus retained his 200m title in 21.07 and finished 2nd in the 100m in 10.73 while Adam recorded a P.B. of 49.81 and 49.36 in both the heats and final of a hot men’s 400m.Both lads helped I.T. Carlow to the silver medals in the sprint relay behind D.C.U.

Tickets are now on sale for the pre Leinster championship football forum to be held in Tinryland G.F.C. on Saturday 5th May at 8.30 p.m. The panel will include the new director general of the G.A.A. Tom Ryan, Carlow football manager Turlough O’Brien, Leinster council chairman Jim Bolger a native of Carlow and Carlow football legends Mark Carpenter O’Hanrahans and Tommy Dwyer Tinryland. 

Tickets which are limited cost €20 and part of the proceeds will be going to the Carlow Football panel training fund.

Tinryland G.F.C. hosted a very successful table quiz in aid of Tinryland N.S. on Friday last 13th April when 43 teams of 4 took part. b

There was deep sadness in the club on Sunday evening last when the news of the passing of former player Ned Townsend came through. Ned was a prominent player at senior level for the club during a golden era in the early 1970’s. He was part of the 1971/72 senior championship winning team and figured prominently on a league winning team in that era also. Ned passed away at his home in Linkardstown after a short illness. The club extends sympathy to his wife Nell, his sons and daughters and the extended Townsend family.

Sympathy is also extended to the Butler family from Castletown on the passing earlier on Sunday of Tom Butler. Tom who was the president of Fenagh G.F.C. resided in Tinryland parish for many years and together with his wife Lily supported many ventures in our club.

On the playing front the senior team won their first brace of league points with a comfortable win over newly promoted Kilbride at Rathcrogue on Sunday. The result was never in doubt after a whirlwind start that saw Tinryland score 1-1 in the opening stages from wing forward Matthew O’Toole. The home side continued to add to the scoreboard with a succession of points from Paul Broderick, Diarmaid Walshe, Glen Doyle, and Conor O’Toole to lead by 7 points at half time.

It was more of the same in the second half with Tinryland scoring an early goal from Niall Lowry and the league points were well wrapped up long before the final whistle. The senior team is back in action on this coming Sunday evening away to Eire Og in Pairc Ui Bhrian at 7 p.m. 

Both junior teams suffered defeats in Division 3 and division 4 respectively at the hands of Naomh Eoin. In division 4 Tinryland were defeated by 5 points while in division 3 a depleted squad suffered a big defeat at the hands of the Myshall men. The division 4 team will be away to Fenagh at J J Hogan park on tomorrow Wednesday at 7 p.m. while the division 3 side travel to Old Leighlin for a 7 p.m. throw in on Saturday next.

The club will host a table quiz in aid of Tinryland N.S. on this coming Friday 13th April. On Saturday next the club will support a special clean- up project in the parish. Members are asked to assemble in Tinryland hall at 9.30 a.m. where equipment such as bags, gloves pickers will be distributed. KCLR will broadcast from Tinryland parish hall from 10 a.m. to 12 noon.

The main club action over the Easter weekend was the U21 championship first round against Mount Leinster Rangers On Sunday last at the training centre in Fenagh. Tinryland as defending champions successfully cleared the first hurdle in this year’s competition but not before they withstood a stern test from a very well organised Rangers team. Tinryland had the better of the first half exchanges and two first half goals in the 12th and 13th minutes from Michael Dobosz and Conor McGrath  helped the men in blue and white to a 4 point interval lead in a game played in very testing weather conditions. Mount Leinster Rangers threw the kitchen sink at Tinryland in the second half and they had reduced the Tinryland advantage to a single point by the 49th minute and in the process held Tinryland scoreless during that period. A Niall Lowry point with 10 minutes remaining lifted the siege and an Eoghan Hosey point together with another from Ronan Curran gave Tinryland a cushion once again entering the closing stages. The icing was put on the cake when Eoghan Hosey rattled the Rangers net in the dying minutes to help the team advance to a semi- final date with either Rathvilly or Michael Davitts.

A large number of supporters from the club travelled to Croke Park on Saturday last to support Carlow in the division 4 final against Laois. Despite the 4 point defeat the club is proud of the efforts of its 5 players on the Carlow panel and wish Paul, Danny, Cian, Diarmaid and Shane all the best for the upcoming Leinster championship clash with Louth in May.

At junior (B) level Tinryland drew with O’Hanrahans in division 4 at Deerpark on Wednesday last and will be back in action at home to Naomh Eoin in Rathcrogue on tomorrow Wednesday at 7 p.m.

The Junior (A) team will commence their division 3 campaign away to Naomh Eoin on Saturday next 7th April at 7 p.m.

The Tinryland senior team who lost out to Palatine in the opening S.F.L. division 1 game will be at home to Kilbride on Sunday next 8th April at 6.30 p.m.

Tinryland G.F.C. will host a pre- Leinster championship football discussion in the clubhouse on Saturday 5th May. The panel will include current Carlow manager Turlough O’Brien, new director general of the G.A.A. Tom Ryan, Leinster council chairman Jim Bolger and former Carlow legends Mark Carpenter (O’Hanrahans) and Tommy Dwyer (Tinryland). Tickets cost 20 euro and part of the proceeds will be going to the Carlow football panel training fund.

The joint dinner dance with Bennekerry-Tinryland ladies club attracted a good attendance to the Seven Oaks hotel on Friday last and proved to be a most enjoyable occasion.

On the night the mens U21 team and the ladies senior squad received 2017 championship medals. Special presentations were made to ladies club members Cliodhna Ni She and Shannen Cotter in recognition of gaining schools interprovincial honours. Tinryland GAA club president Brendan Hayden who is entering his second year in office was presented with a specially commissioned club blazer by club chairman Mick Murphy.

On Sunday last the season at club level began with the local derby between Tinryland and Palatine for S.F.L. division 1 points and also the Andy Murphy shield. Tinryland enjoyed the better of the exchanges in the first half and held a four point advantage at the interval. The second half was a completely different affair that saw the Palatine men score eleven unanswered points in a 20 minute spell. Tinryland could only manage 3 consolation points in that disappointing second half. After the game the Andy Murphy shield was presented to Palatine captain Tomas Kenny by the late Andy Murphy’s daughter Helen Whelan. Tinryland’s next game in the S.F.L. division 1 will be a home tie against Kilbride on Sunday 8th April. The club’s second junior team are in action on tomorrow Wednesday away to O’Hanrahans in division 4 in Deerpark at 7 p.m.

Tinryland footballers Paul Broderick, Danny Moran, Shane Redmond, Cian Lawlor and Diarmaid Walshe were part of the Carlow team that lost narrowly to Laois in the final round of the Allianz N.F.L. division 4 on Sunday last. Tinryland G.F.C. extends best wishes to the lads and the entire Carlow squad and management for the division 4 final against the O’Moore Co. in Croke Park on this coming Saturday. Congratulations to Paul Broderick who was selected as G.A.A. player of the week in the entire country for his display in the previous round of the league against Antrim.

The club also extends congratulations to Tinryland athletic club member Tommy Payne who won a brilliant silver medal at the European Masters indoor championships in Madrid last week. Competing in the 3000m at M60 level Tommy clocked 10 minutes 3 second for the 15 lap event only losing out to the Swedish gold medallist in a sprint finish in a 33 strong line-up. Not bad running for a man about to celebrate his 61st birthday!!

Tinryland players played their part in Carlow’s great victory in round 6 of the Allianz N.F.L. away to Antrim in Belfast on Sunday last. The 3 point victory ensured the Barrowsiders promotion to Division 3 for the 1st time in 33 years. Paul Broderick had his usual star game scoring 7 points with Shane Redmond, playing well in defence. Cian Lawlor was introduced early in the 2nd half while Danny Moran and Diarmaid Walshe all played their part in the six match winning sequence over London, Limerick, Leitrim, Waterford, Wicklow and Antrim. Carlow will face Laois this coming weekend at Netwatch Cullen Park in the final game of the league having already secured promotion.

The club football season will begin on this coming Sunday in Bennekerry at 6 p.m. when Tinryland senior footballers open their campaign against our neighbours Palatine. This game will also double up as the Andy Murphy memorial tournament which was first contested in 2015 during the Andy Murphy memorial week which raised over 30,000 euro for the Carlow Hospice fund. Tinryland has won the cup twice with Palatine winning in 2016 when the game was last staged in Bennekerry.

Adding further spice to this fixture is the fact that both clubs have been drawn together in the opening round of the 2018 Carlow S.F.C.

The big talking point of the past week was the senior championship draws which took place in Carlow Co. board offices on Tuesday last. Tinryland was drawn in a tough group that includes former recent championship winners Palatine, Rathvilly and Old Leighlin.

The men in blue and white hoops will open their challenge on July 22nd with a mouth- watering local derby against our neighbours Palatine. There will be further group games against Rathvilly and Old Leighlin during August.

At junior (B) level Tinryland will play O’Hanrahans on 13th June followed by games with Kildavin/Clonegal and Eire Og.
