Tinryland G.F.C. will review the past year and plan for 2018 at the A.G.M. on Monday next 4th December at 8 p.m. The highlights of the past year included a 9th U21 title when Tinryland defeated Rathvilly in dramatic circumstances in August. During the year the club lost a number of stalwarts including Mick Whelan the former president. Others who went to their eternal reward included former chairman Paddy Regan, former long serving treasurer Tom Doyle, and former players Mick “Yank” Farrell, Pat (P.P) Farrell, John McGrath and Michael O’Halloran together with club bar tenders Brigid and George Johnston. 

The date for the club dinner dance in conjunction with Bennekerry-Tinryland ladies club has been fixed. It will take place in the Seven Oaks Hotel on Friday 2nd March 2018. At this function the U21 championship medals and the ladies senior championship medals will be presented. Further details from any member of the dinner dance sub- committee: Eamonn Byrne, Brian Deane, John McCullough, Cormac Walshe, Fionnuala Ni Mhordha or Yvonne Bullen-Cranny.

Tinryland G.F.C. hosted the Carlow Juvenile G.A.A. awards evening on Saturday last when a large attendance representing all Carlow hurling and football clubs were present.

The club will hold a members night before Christmas. The date will be confirmed this week. 

The Annual turkey trot on St. Stephen’s day at 11.30 a.m. will benefit the Tinryland senior citizens party. The event as usual will be over 4 miles of the Tinryland-Ballybar- Ballyloo circuit.
