The big event in the club this coming weekend is the 50 years reunion function for the 1967 and 1969 u21 team and the senior league winning squad of 1968.

Months of planning has gone into organising this event and former players are travelling back to Tinryland from many places for the occassion. The reunion will start at 7.30 p.m. on Friday next 8th June with the sit down meal due to commence at 8 p.m.

All roads lead to Croke Park on Sunday next 10th June   when Carlow take on Laois in the Leinster S.F.C. semi- final at 2 p.m.  Many Tinryland supporters are intending to travel to Dublin for the game and a bus will leave the club at 10 a.m. on Sunday morning. There are a limited number of seats still available on the bus and further details can be got from Pat Whelan at 0862374297.

Tinryland G.F.C. wishes good look to the Carlow team and management including the 5 Tinryland players Paul Broderick, Cian Lawlor, Danny Moran, Shane Redmond and Diarmaid Walshe. 

On the playing front the club second string maintained their interest in the S.F.L. division 3 with an impressive victory over Palatine in Rathcrogue on Thursday last. An early goal from veteran corner forward Niall Barrett set the boys in blue and white on the road and 2 quickfire second half goals from Gary Fields and David Townsend gave the home side their second victory in the division with one game remaining against Leighlinbridge.

The game with Leighlinbridge on Saturday last resulted in another comfortable win for the men in blue and white. Goals in each half from Niall Barrett and David Townsend laid the foundation for victory but with other results not in Tinryland’s favour it looks like the team has lost out on making the knockout stages in division 3.

At senior level Tinryland will play Old Leighlin in Molaise Park this Tuesday evening at 8 p.m. with both teams needing a win to maintain their interest in the S.F.L division 1. 

The club championship fixtures were published recently. In the Michael Lyng motors S.F.C.

The club in association with Tinryland N.S. staged the 2nd annual Seamus Walshe football tournament for the pupils on Thursday last. The event in memory of the late long serving officer Seamus Walshe was a huge success and was blessed with ideal weather conditions. The winning captain Bobby Doyle was presented with the cup by Jimmy Walshe son of the late Seamus. Tinryland G.F.C. extends thanks to the Walshe family for their generous sponsorship of this very popular tournament
