The past week was a tough one for club teams at both adult and juvenile level. The week began with the minors taking on a highly ranked Fenagh outfit in the M.F.C. (A) division played in Rathcrogue on Monday last. Despite only having 16 players available, Tinryland aquitted themselves well against their highly ranked opponents and were on level terms at half time. For 15 minutes of the second half the boys in blue and white continued to perform well before Fenagh prevailed in the final quarter to run out eventual winners on a scoreline of 3-12 to 0-9. Best for Tinryland  were goalkeeper Daniel Donegan, defenders Dannan Burke, Cuan Burke, Jack Murphy, together with midfielder Tommy Dunne and forwards Eoghan Hosey, Ronan Curran and Dinny Farrell.

In the J.F.C. (A) division Tinryland were unable to field against St. Patricks in the final game in group 1 and will now have to fight a relegation battle against Rathvilly to determine their J.F. status for 2018. In the J.F.C. (B) division Tinryland’s 2nd junior team were well beaten by Eire Og but are still in the championship where they will face O’Hanrahans in the quarter final.

At underage level the U16 team did not perform to their usual standards when they lost out to neighbours Palatine in the Fairgreen shopping centre U16 division 2 semi-final played at the Fenagh training centre on Friday last. After a poor start Tinryland got back into contention before half time but 2 quick 2nd half goals for the Cnoc Arda boys sealed Tinryland’s fate and they eventually lost out by 2-13 to 0-6. Best for Tinryland in this game were Sam Byrne, Jonah Dunne, Brian McGrath, Cian Nicholl, Padraig Thompson, Cormac O’Brien and Patrick Regan. The U12 team were out of luck also losing out to Muinebheag in the final played in Netwatch Cullen Park on Saturday last.

The senior ladies team will be seeking a 3rd consecutive Carlow S.F.C. title when they contest the final against Old Leighlin at Netwatch Cullen Park on Sunday next 10th September. The Bennekerry-Tinryland ladies have already lost to their opponents in the group stages of this year’s championship but have subsequently showed improved form in the victories against Palatine and former winners St. Fortherns. The throw in for the ladies final is at 3.15 p.m.
