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.
