        21st Annual edition of Tinryland parish magazine “Reaching Out” now available
By Eamonn Byrne

The 21st annual Tinryland parish magazine “Reaching Out” will once again be available in the lead up to Christmas.

Once again the editor Maureen Byrne together with Clem Delaney (design & layout) have combined to produce a 40 page gem covering events in the parish past and present.

This year’s magazine features contributions from both regular and new writers with many photographs included which highlight a busy 2016 in Tinryland parish and there is something of interest for both young and old in the various contributions.

Tinryland G.F.C. features strongly in this year’s edition with comprehensive accounts of the successes and failures during the year including the club’s participation in the 1916 commemoration events held by Carlow Co. board of the G.A.A. There is a 1916 theme throughout this year’s edition with the front cover illustrating the recently constructed 1916 commemorative garden in the village showing the 7 flower pots depicting the signatures to the proclamation.

Sport in general is well catered for with profiles on local sprinter Adam Murphy from Ballyloo and Cormac Kelly from Linkardstown who is making a name for himself in the sport of Triathlon. The 37th Annual Rockford road race is also covered as is the Irish dancing exploits of local girl Amy Broderick from Kyleballyhue who is ranked No. 2 in the world. The ladies of Bennekerry-Tinryland G.F.C. and the Handball club both had successful years and also feature in this edition of “Reaching Out”.

Other interesting articles include an account with photographs of the various shops that operated in Tinryland in the past 70 years prior to the closure of the last one standing in Tinryland village recently. The magazine also has a comprehensive Tinryland N.S. report on a busy school year from new principal Orlaith Hennessy and a report from Lorna Collier on the happenings at the Tinryland I.C.A. guild. Two very interesting articles by Tom Murphy of Clochristic on his trips to World youth day and the Somme are well worth a read also. 

“Reaching Out” 2016 is available at Deane’s of Barrack St. Carlow, Tinryland church and Tinryland G.A.A. club. It should prove to be a nice enjoyable read over the holiday period at the bargain price of 5 euro.
