The 22nd annual Tinryland parish magazine “Reaching Out” will be published on Saturday next 16th December.

The editor Maureen Byrne and Clem Delaney (Design and layout) have combined to produce another gem covering a wide variety of parish events past and present.

Once again Tinryland G.F.C. features prominently in “Reaching Out” with extensive records and many photographs of a very busy year at both adult and juvenile level. Tinryland’s great win in the U21 championship is featured as are the many good performances by the juvenile section of the club. Sport in general is covered extensively with Liam Byrne the team captain taking a nostalgic look back on Tinryland’s first u21 football title 50 years ago in 1967. The magazine also reports on a successful year for the athletic club, the handball club and Bennekerry-Tinryland ladies football club who won a 3rd successive S.F.C. in 2017.

This years “Reaching Out” again features contributions from both regular and new writers with many photographs from local photographer Jenny McCullough and others highlighting a very busy year in Tinryland parish.

Recently returned St. Patrick’s Kiltegan Missionary priest Fr. Eamonn Hayden is profiled by Liam Byrne while local musicians Paschal Tomlinson and Pat Kelly are featured after a lifetime in the entertainment business.

There are articles to interest all tastes with historical items by Conor Byrne on the recently revamped Linkardstown graveyard and an article by Carlow museum curator Dermot Mulligan on St. Willibrord patron Saint of Luxembourg who was based in Tinryland parish at Garryhundon from 678 AD to 690 AD.

The magazine includes season’s greetings from the priests of the parish and a report from the local Tinryland national school by the principal Orlaith Hennessy

The major success stories in the parish during the year are featured including Amy Broderick’s great win at the World Irish dancing championships in Belfast and John Murphy’s superb victory at the national u21 ploughing championships. Cormac Kelly’s triathlon exploits and Robert O’Neill’s success at Crufts dog show are also featured in “Reaching Out” 2017.

Reaching Out also includes a full list of parish records for 2017 and should prove to be a valuable historical tool in the future.
