The new season began on a positive note on Sunday last at Rathcrogue when the seniors defeated Palatine in round 1 of the S.F.L. This game doubled up as the Andy Murphy memorial shield final.

In an evenly contested first half Tinryland’s  goal came from the penalty spot in the 15th minute when Diarmaid Walshe slotted the ball past Craig Kearney after a foul on Keith Jackson. The teams were all square at the interval but within 7 minutes of the restart the home side were 7 points ahead after two wonderful goals from Cormac Walshe and the recently introduced sub James McGrath. Palatine then set about reducing the margin scoring 3 unanswered points in a 15 minute spell. The league points were wrapped up in the 56th minute when Ciaran Larkin scored Tinryland’s 4th goal. After the game the Andy Murphy memorial shield was presented to Tinryland captain Trevor O’Reilly by John Murphy youngest son of the late Andy Murphy.

The seniors are back in action on Sunday next 2nd April with another home fixture against Rathvilly.

The No. 1 junior team will open their S.F.L. division 3 campaign with a home fixture against Rathvilly on this Tuesday evening 28th March at 7 p.m. The No. 2 junior squad will be away to Naomh Eoin on  Wednesday 29th   March at 7 p.m.
