Tinryland G.F.C. Notes for 10th January 2018

posted 13 Jan 2018, 12:43 by


There was deep sadness among many club members in the lead up to Christmas when the death of former leading club player Enda Smyth was announced on Tuesday 19th December.

Enda who was in his 85th year and was a native of Meath joined the club when he first came to work at Carlow sugar factory in the late 1950’s. Donning the midfield jersey he gave many sterling performances in the Tinryland and Carlow colours and he featured on the very good Carlow team of 1962 that narrowly lost the national league semi-final to then All Ireland champions Down. He was a member of the Tinryland team that won the Carlow S.F.L. in 1961 and when he retired from playing the game he maintained his links with the club through the many friends he had made over the years. At his funeral in Graiguecullen on Thursday 21st December Tinryland club members provided a guard of honour with the blue and white jersey placed on his coffin together with the Carlow Jersey and Co. Carlow rugby football club colours. Following his requiem Mass Enda was laid to rest at The Hill Of Slane in his native county of Meath.

“Reaching Out” Magazine

posted 15 Dec 2017, 11:21 by   [ updated 15 Dec 2017, 11:27 ]

 By Eamonn Byrne    


The 22nd annual Tinryland parish magazine “Reaching Out” will be published on Saturday next 16th December.

The editor Maureen Byrne and Clem Delaney (Design and layout) have combined to produce another gem covering a wide variety of parish events past and present.

Once again Tinryland G.F.C. features prominently in “Reaching Out” with extensive records and many photographs of a very busy year at both adult and juvenile level. Tinryland’s great win in the U21 championship is featured as are the many good performances by the juvenile section of the club. Sport in general is covered extensively with Liam Byrne the team captain taking a nostalgic look back on Tinryland’s first u21 football title 50 years ago in 1967. The magazine also reports on a successful year for the athletic club, the handball club and Bennekerry-Tinryland ladies football club who won a 3rd successive S.F.C. in 2017.

This years “Reaching Out” again features contributions from both regular and new writers with many photographs from local photographer Jenny McCullough and others highlighting a very busy year in Tinryland parish.

Recently returned St. Patrick’s Kiltegan Missionary priest Fr. Eamonn Hayden is profiled by Liam Byrne while local musicians Paschal Tomlinson and Pat Kelly are featured after a lifetime in the entertainment business.

There are articles to interest all tastes with historical items by Conor Byrne on the recently revamped Linkardstown graveyard and an article by Carlow museum curator Dermot Mulligan on St. Willibrord patron Saint of Luxembourg who was based in Tinryland parish at Garryhundon from 678 AD to 690 AD.

The magazine includes season’s greetings from the priests of the parish and a report from the local Tinryland national school by the principal Orlaith Hennessy

The major success stories in the parish during the year are featured including Amy Broderick’s great win at the World Irish dancing championships in Belfast and John Murphy’s superb victory at the national u21 ploughing championships. Cormac Kelly’s triathlon exploits and Robert O’Neill’s success at Crufts dog show are also featured in “Reaching Out” 2017.

Reaching Out also includes a full list of parish records for 2017 and should prove to be a valuable historical tool in the future.

“Reaching Out” 2017 is available at Deane’s Newsagents Barrack St.  Carlow, Rath’s Londis Superstore Pollerton, Tinryland N.S., Tinryland Church and Tinryland G.A.A. club. It should prove to be a nice enjoyable read over the holiday period at the bargain price of €5.

There was a large attendance at the Tinryland G.F.C. Annual general meeting held in the clubhouse on Monday 4th December. Outgoing officers Mick Murphy (Chairman) and Enda Dunican (Secretary) reflected on a mixed year in 2017 with the winning of the U21 championship the highlight. Treasurer Ger Broderick produced a very comprehensive financial report that highlighted the huge cost and large effort it takes to keep a club of Tinryland’s size alive while the meeting was also addressed by club president Brendan Hayden. Looking forward to 2018 chairman Mick Murphy asked for an even greater effort from both players and committee stating that it was his greatest wish to see the senior team successful once again. It is now 37 years since Tinryland won a Carlow S.F.C.  Tributes were paid to the juvenile section of the club for their great efforts in 2017 while the club members who passed away during the year were also remembered at the meeting.
