Club notes Tinryland G.F.C.  week 13th March 2017

The new club playing season is fast approaching and the various league fixtures were issued to the clubs last week. Tinryland will open the S.F.L. Division 1 campaign with an away fixture against reigning Co. champions Palatine on Sunday 26th March at 5.30 p.m. The first home fixture will be against Rathvilly on Sunday 2nd April followed by another away game against recently promoted St. Andrews in McGrath Park on Sunday 9th April. The number 1 junior team will open their league division 3 programme with a home fixture with Rathvilly on Tuesday 28th March at 7 p.m. while the No. 2 junior team will be away to Naomh Eoin in division 4 on Wednesday 29th March at 7 p.m.

The ladies team will defend their Carlow S.F.C. title against 6 other teams this year. There is a new format for the ladies this year with teams playing a round robin format before the semi-finallists are determined. Bennekerry-Tinryland ladies have been drawn in a four team group comprising of neighbours Palatine, Old Leighlin and Naomh Eoin Myshall. The teams in the other round robin group are Rathvilly, Ballon and St. Fortcherns.

Best wishes to Tinryland handballer Aaron Geoghegan who plays Jordan O’Neill from Antrim in the All Ireland Junior B final on this coming Thursday 16th March in Kingscourt Co. Cavan. Aaron defeated Leo Logan from Leitrim in the semi- final last week.

Congratulations to club member and local dog breeder Robert O’Neill who tasted success at the world famous dog show Crufts which was held at the national Exhibition centre in Birmingham last week. Robert’s Maltese bitch Seoidin Secret Smile who wore the Tinryland colours of blue and white was placed second in its category having qualified for the world famous show by winning at the Midland Counties show in the U.K. last October.

All players are reminded that membership fee’s must be paid before the start of the upcoming league.
