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.
