Tinryland G.F.C. Notes for Tuesday 18th September 2018

It was a mixed week for our club. On Wednesday morning the news came through of Paul Broderick’s All Star nomination for his performances in league and championship with Carlow this year. Paul has been an outstanding servant for club and county since his juvenile days and he is only the 2nd Carlow footballer to receive an All Star nomination. Eire Og player Colm Hayden son of current Tinryland president Brendan was the last Carlow footballer to be nominated 24 years ago.

On the field of play the senior team crashed out of the Michael Lyng motors senior football championship when losing by 4 points to Mount Leinster Rangers at Netwatch Cullen Park on Saturday. Tinryland had their chances in this game and led by 4 points at the interval despite playing poorly at times. In the 2nd half Mount Leinster rangers found the Tinryland net on 3 occassions and despite a consolation goal from Shane Redmond near the end the South Carlow club progressed to the semi -final and Tinryland’s wait for a 16th S.F.C. title now extends to 38 years.

The senior ladies team from Bennekerry-Tinryland were involved in a remarkable Co. senior final on Thursday last at Netwatch Cullen Park as they strived for a 4th consecutive Co. S.F.C. title.

The BT ladies made a good start with early goals from Cliodhna Ni Se and Roisin Byrne but the challengers Old Leighlin rocked the defending champions with 5 goals in a 10 minute purple patch that left the BT ladies trailing by 9 points at the interval. Two early second half points gave our ladies some hope but they were then dealt a double blow when Old Leighlin converted a penalty while Lauren Dwyer was sent to the sin bin for 10 minutes. As Old Leighlin went on the defensive to protect their advantage Bennekerry-Tinryland began to make inroads and another Roisin Byrne goal was followed by 2 points from the same player together with further points from Cliodhna Ni Se, Elaine Ware, and Lauren Dwyer who was now back on the field of play having sat out the 10 minutes in the sin bin.

As play entered stoppage time both sides began to feel the effects of the fast pace and players from the 2 teams went down regularly with cramp. As play entered the 8th minute of injury time BT launched one final attack and Elaine Ware was on the receiving end of a pass from Roisin Byrne and the tall Co. player deflected the ball past Nicole Hanley in the Old Leighlin goal which brought an epic womens final in Carlow to a replay on a date to be arranged.

Today is a day of immense pride as our ace marksman Paul Broderick has been nominated for an All-Star. We congratulate Paul on his immense achievement. It doesn't come as a surprise to those of us who have witnessed Paul's brilliance in the Carlow colours for the past few seasons. It is also a hugely proud day for Carlow football.

The coming week is an important one for both the senior men’s and womens teams in the championship. On this coming Thursday 13th September at Netwatch Cullen Park at 7.45 p.m. the senior ladies will be seeking a 4th consecutive Carlow S.F.C. when they take on last year’s finallists Old Leighlin in the 2018 final. The ladies team have prepared well under Alan Doyle and Gregg Murphy and will be hoping for another title which will then qualify the team for the Leinster club championship.

On Saturday next at Netwatch Cullen park at 6.30 p.m. the senior men’s team will contest the quarter final of the Michael Lyng Motors Carlow S.F.C. against Mount Leinster Rangers. Tinryland finished 2nd in the group stages having defeated Palatine and Old Leighlin and losing by 2 points to Rathvilly. Hopes are high for another victory on Saturday in order to progress to the semi- final which will take place one week later.

The U17 team put up a great performance in the round robin series when they defeated St. Patricks in another thrilling match last week at Bro Leo Park. Tinryland got off to a great start with 3 points from Evan McGuire, Maurice Lawler and Cormac O’Brien and when the latter rattled the St. Pats net Tinryland looked to be well on their way to victory. St Patricks staged a great comeback before half time and only the minimum separated the teams at the interval. In the early stages of the second half both teams had dominant spells but Tinryland eventually prevailed by 3 points with excellent scores from Maurice Lawler, Evan McGuire, Jonah Dunne and Cormac O’Brien. The boys in blue and white who will play St. Andrews in their next game had outstanding performers in Jack Murphy, Aongus O’Se, Cormac McElligott, Sam Byrne, Cian Nicholl and Dannan Burke together with the main scorers McGuire, Lawler, Dunne and O’Brien.

Tinryland G.F.C. is this year celebrating 130 years in existence and will be part of the Carlow G.A.A. photographic and aertafact exhibition which is planned for the Fairgreen shopping centre from Friday 5th October to Sunday 14th October. Carlow G.A.A. is also celebrating 130 years in existence this year and the upcoming exhibition will feature all strands of the GAA since the foundation of the organisation in Carlow in 1888.

The club lotto jackpot now stands at 3,700 euros and is held every Monday night at 10 p.m.

It was a quiet week on the playing front as the club prepares for the concluding stages of the Michael Lyng Motors Carlow S.F.C. quarter final with Mount Leinster Rangers. That game has been fixed for Saturday 15th September at Netwatch Cullen Park at 6.30 p.m.

On the field of play the U17 team was involved in a thrilling game with our neighbours Palatine on Monday last. Palatine shaded matters in the first half and led by 2-4 to 0-4 at half time. Early second half points from Cian Nicholl and Maurice Lawler heralded a Tinryland revival and further points from Lawler, Evan McGuire and Cormac O’Brien kept the momentum going with only a single point separating the teams entering the closing stages. Try as they might Tinryland could not find the equaliser and they lost out to the Cnoc Arda boys on a scoreline of 2-9 to 0-14. Outstanding for the boys in blue and white were Jonah Dunne, Dannan Burke, Sam Byrne, Maurice Lawler, Evan McGuire, Paddy Regan and Cormac O’Brien. Tinryland played St. Patricks in the 2nd match of the round robin last evening Monday with the final game against Muinebheag fixed for Monday next 10th September. Tinryland U11’s will play Rathvilly in division 1 on Saturday next 8th September in Tinryland at 4 p.m. followed by another game with Mount Leinster Rangers on Saturday 15th September at 4 p.m.  

The U8 and U10 squads completed their season with a successful outing to the Go games blitz which took place in the training centre on Saturday last. Well done to the coaches and the parents of both teams for their efforts this year. Over 50 young players are currently involved with both squads which bodes well for the future. Aoibh Gardiner and James Keogh were the winners of the Tinryland Juvenile G.F.C. golden goal competition based on the time of the first goal in last Sunday’s All Ireland football final.

In ladies football Bennekerry –Tinryland senior team is preparing for their 4th consecutive S.F.C. final. That game against Old Leighlin has been fixed for Thursday 13th September at a venue still to be decided.

Pride of place this week goes to our senior footballers who overcame the challenge of a gritty Old Leighlin team to qualify for the quarter final of the Michael Lyng motors S.F.C. at Spellman park Kildavin on Saturday last. Tinryland led by 5 points at the interval with an early Glenn Doyle goal edging the men in blue and white ahead. Old Leighlin were back on level terms mid- way through the second half but Tinryland re grouped and a sterling second half performance left the final score Tinryland 1-11 Old Leighlin 1-5. Tinryland had outstanding performers in John Murphy, John Paul Moore, Rory Doyle, Conor Byrne, Niall Lowry, Diarmaid Walshe and Paul Broderick. The quarter final with Mount Leinster Rangers has been fixed for week ending 16th September.

Both junior teams exited the championship at the hands of Naomh Eoin in the past week. In the J.F.C. (B) played at the Training centre on Wednesday last Tinryland’s 3rd squad lost out to the Myshall team on a scoreline of 1-13 to 1-4. Tinryland’s best players in this game were Joey Ryan, Gregg Murphy, Richard Whyte, Barry Power and Seamus Curran.

In the J.F.C. (A) Naomh Eoin proved too strong for Tinryland’s second squad winning out by 1-10 to 0-6. Tinryland’s most prominent players in this game were Chris Townsend, Padraig Whelan, Padraig Townsend, Conor Ryan, Colm Kearney until injured, and Niall Barrett. The Junior (A) squad will now face Asca to determine who retains their J.F.C. (a) status next year.

The juvenile section of Tinryland G.F.C. are running a competition fundraiser in conjunction with the All Ireland football final between Dublin and Tyrone. We want your guess for the time that the first goal will be scored in minutes and seconds. Each guess costs €2. All juvenile players have cards and all support will be gratefully appreciated.

The club extends sympathy to the Byrne family from Rathcrogue on the passing of Mrs Mary Byrne on Friday last. Mrs Byrne was laid to rest after requiem Mass in Tinryland on  Monday.

The coming week is a big one in the season for our club with 3 adult teams in championship action. First up is the Junior (B) squad who will contest the Talbot Hotel J.F.C. (B) quarter final against Naomh Eoin at the training centre Fenagh on tomorrow Wednesday at 7.30 p.m.
On Saturday next all roads lead to Spellman Park Kildavin where our senior team will contest the final game in Group 1 of the Michael Lyng Motors S.F.C. against Old Leighlin. After defeating Palatine in round 1 and losing to Rathvilly in round 2 Tinryland need at least a draw on Saturday to progress to the quarter final.
The Junior (A) team will play the same opposition in the J.F.C. (A) on Sunday evening in the training centre at 6.00 p.m. in the final group 2  game in the J.F.C. (A) with nothing less than a win needed to progress to the knockout stages.

Local handballers Kevin Barrett and Aaron Geoghegan put up a great show at the World handball championships in Minneapolis last week. The Tinryland handball club pair defeated all before them to reach the semi-final of the men’s (A) grade before bowing out at that stage to Tipperary’s Daniel Hayes and Paul Hedderman. In the semi-final played on last Saturday evening the Tinryland pair actually led in both games of the semi-final before losing out 21-13, 21-15 to the strong Tipperary pair. Katie Barrett and Geoff Atkinson from Tinryland H.C. were also part of the travelling group from Carlow to the Minneapolis event that attracted handball players from 20 different countries.

Sympathy is extended to the Gordon family from Rutland Bennekerry on the passing of Gerry Gordon on Friday last 17th August. Gerry was a former Tinryland footballer who won a S.F.L. medal with the club in 1961 and he also acted on our committee for a number of years and was chairman for a spell in the early 1960’s. He was also a prominent member and past president of Carlow rugby club figuring as prop forward on the 1977 Towns cup winning team. Gerry won a Laois S.F.C. medal with Graiguecullen in 1965. He was laid to rest in Bennekerry on Sunday last.

It was a quiet week on the playing front but club members were busy at the annual Tinryland G.F.C. golf classic in Gowran park golf club. There was a tremendous turn out for this annual event held over 2 days on Friday and Saturday last. 31 teams of 4 took part and there was a great response from the loyal sponsors who come up trumps every year in support of this valuable fundraiser.

After 2 days of enjoyable golf the winning team was comprised of John McHugh, Dick Gilman, Betty Kelly and former Tinryland and Carlow footballer David “Tut” Byrne.  The best local team was the quartet of John Whyte, Paul Broderick, John Murphy and Cormac Walshe. Current Tinryland footballer Mark Morrissey was successful in the closest to pin category while a second local team of Mark Morrissey, Shane Redmond, Shane O’Neill and Diarmaid Walshe also were among the prize winners. Well done to the hard working organising committee of Cormac Walshe, Mark Morrissey, Paul Broderick, Diarmaid Walshe, Conor Byrne and Padraic Whelan for their efforts in making the event a huge success. The prize giving ceremony took place in the clubhouse Rathcrogue on Saturday evening.

Last week was a mixed one on the playing front with teams tasting both success and defeat.

In the Michael Lyng Motors S.F.C. Tinryland lost out to last year’s Co. finallists Rathvilly by 2 points in a low scoring game at Netwatch Cullen Park on Saturday evening. Tinryland who had defeated Palatine in the first round led by the minimum mid- way through the first half but were rocked by a Rathvilly goal from Garry Dempsey in the 19th minute. At half time both sides were all square at 1-1 for Rathvilly and 0-4 for Tinryland. The second half was a close affair with both defences on top but Tinryland were reduced to 14 men following a second yellow card for midfielder Mark Morrissey. Rathvilly edged ahead with late points to maintain their unbeaten record in group 1 and Tinryland will now have to defeat Old Leighlin at the end of August to progress to the knockout stages.

In the Talbot Hotel junior (A) championship Tinryland staged a remarkable comeback in their round 2 game with Leighlinbridge on Thursday last. Trailing by 10 points at half time Tinryland went further in arrears when Leighlinbridge scored an early second half goal but remarkably the game changed in a big way over the next 20 minutes. Tinryland scored 3 goals in a 12 minute period mid- way through the 2nd half and were on level terms with less than one minute left on the clock. Leighlinbridge then scored a point from a free but Tinryland got the equaliser with a brilliant point from Mark Lawlor deep in stoppage time. Outstanding for Tinryland who play Naomh Eoin in their final group game at the end of August were David Townsend scorer of 3-2, Peter Doran, Conor Ryan, Mark Lawlor, David O’Shea, Padraig Townsend and Eoghan Hosey.

Bennekerry-Tinryland ladies team are on course for a 4th successive Carlow S.F.C. following a comfortable win over former champions St. Fortcherns on Thursday last. Playing against a strong wind BT led by the minimum at half time but pulled away for a comfortable win in the second half with a hat trick of goals from Lauren Dwyer and another from Leah Mullins to run out easy winners on a scoreline of 4-16 to 1-6. Outstanding for the BT ladies were Jane Bullen, Alex McNeill, Niamh Kelly, Lauren Dwyer, Cliodhna Ni Se, Katie Bullen and Deirdre Tomlinson. Best wishes to the Bennekerry Tinryland representatives on the Carlow team that plays Limerick in the All Ireland J.F.C. in Limerick on Saturday next.

It was a good week on the club scene with the senior footballers making the best possible start to the Michael Lyng Motors Carlow S.F.C. Written off by pundits and bookmakers alike Tinryland produced a great second half performance to overturn a 3 point half time deficit against our neighbours Palatine at Netwatch Cullen Park. Goals from Mark Morrissey, Diarmaid Walshe and team captain John Murphy laid the foundations for this win and Tinryland will now play Rathvilly in round 2 on week ending 5th August. The final group game will take place on week ending 26th August against Old Leighlin.

At junior B level Tinryland advanced to the quarter final despite a 5 point loss to Kildavin Clonegal on Wednesday last.

In the Talbot Hotel Junior (A) championship Tinryland suffered a heavy defeat to a strong St. Patricks outfit at the training centre on Sunday evening. The first half was a competitive affair with Tinryland leading by 4 points after 15 minutes helped by a great individual goal from Ronan Curran. St Patricks then began to turn the screw scoring 3 first half goals to lead by 3 points at half time. Tinryland’s cause was not helped when wing forward Padraic Whelan was sent off just before the interval. In the second half the men in blue and white could only manage three further points as the Tullow team coasted to a very easy victory. Tinryland’s next outing in the junior (A) championship will be against Leighlinbridge on Sunday 5th August with the final group game against Naomh Eoin on 26th August.
