Another busy season wound down with mixed success in the past week. Our Junior (A) mens team avoided relegation to the Junior (B) grade for the 2nd successive year with a comfortable win over Asca at the training centre on Friday last. Tinryland led at half time by 4 points but the game should have been wrapped up at this stage as the forwards kicked 10 wides in the opening half. Early in the 2nd half Tinryland stretched 6 points clear but an Asca goal and a point reduced the margin to 2 points with 10 minutes remaining. Tinryland then began to stretch clear again and a goal from Ronan Curran and points from Dean and Dinny Farrell left 7 points separating the teams at the end. Outstanding for Tinryland were Tommy Dunne, Niall Barrett, Peter Doran, Conor Ryan, Dean Farrell, Dinny Farrell and Padraig Townsend.

Tinryland U17 team lost out by the minimum margin in a cracking game with Muinebheag at McGrath Park on Monday last. The home team led by one point at the interval but after an even 2nd half the teams were tied entering the dying seconds. On the stroke of full time Muinebheag got the winner on a scoreline of 0-15 to 1-11. Outstanding for the boys in blue and white were Sam Byrne, Dannan Burke, Jonah Dunne, Jack Murphy, Evan McGuire, Maurice Lawler, Paddy Regan and Cormac O’Brien. Well done to their mentors Dave Byrne, Marcus Lawler, Conor McGrath, Richie McGrath, John Murphy and Diarmuid O’Se who worked so hard with this group since January.

The senior ladies team from Bennekerry/Tinryland failed in their bid for a four in a row S.F.C. title when they were comfortably outgunned by an excellent Old Leighlin team at McGrath Park Bagenalstown on Sunday afternoon. The BT ladies had made a Lazarus like comeback in the drawn game 2 week’s ago having been 10 points in arrears mid- way through the 2nd half. They found themselves in the same position in front of a large attendance on Sunday but this time there was no comeback against a fitter, faster and more hungry Old Leighlin team who deservedly won the Brady catering cup for the first time on Sunday.

At U13 level Tinryland was involved in a remarkable game at Netwatch Cullen Park in the Division 2 final. Tinryland scored 6 goals in this game but were denied by a very good St. Patrick’s team on a scoreline of 5-9 to 6-1.

Tinryland will be involved in the Carlow G.A.A. photographic and aertafact exhibition which opens in the Fairgreen shopping centre on this coming Friday 5th October at 6 p.m. The exhibition opens on Saturday 6th October from 2 p.m. until 6 p.m. and on Sunday next 7th October from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m. It reopens on Thursday 11th October from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. and on Friday 12th October from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. The exhibition closes on Saturday 13th October at 6 p.m.

With the season coming to a conclusion Tinryland still have interest at a number of levels. On this coming Sunday 30th September the eagerly anticipated replay of the senior ladies football final with Old Leighlin has finally been fixed and will take place in McGrath Park Bagenalstown at 3 p.m.  If the re-match is even half as exciting as the drawn game it should be another thriller and the Bennekerry-Tinryland ladies will be hoping for a better start on Sunday in their efforts to win the Brady catering cup for a 4th successive season. It took a Lazarus type comeback to gain a draw at Netwatch Cullen Park two week’s ago in front of a large attendance and another large crowd of supporters from both clubs is expected at the Bagenalstown venue on Sunday. The winners will represent Carlow in the Leinster J.F.C. against the Wicklow Intermediate champions St. Patrick’s who defeated Valleymount in the final at Aughrim on Sunday last. That game has been fixed at a Wicklow venue for Sunday 7th October.

Tinryland Junior (A) team are due to play Asca in a relegation battle on this coming Friday 28th September at the Carlow training centre at 7.30 p.m.

At juvenile level Tinryland u13 footballers will play St. Patrick’s in the division 2B final at Netwatch Cullen Park on this coming Saturday 29th September at 12.30 p.m. The U17 team were in action last evening (Monday) in the round robin series away to Muinebheag. 

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 G.A.A. since the foundation of the organisation in Carlow in 1888.

The club lotto jackpot currently stands at 3,900 euro and the draw is held every Monday night in the clubhouse at 10 p.m.

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.
