The championship season is upon us and there will be three Tinryland teams in action in the coming week. First up is the Junior B squad who play Kildavin-Clonegal in Rathcrogue on Tomorrow Wednesday at 8 p.m. This team needs a win to guarantee a quarter final spot having defeated O’Hanrahans and lost to Eire Og in previous rounds.

On Saturday next the senior team will open their campaign in the Michael Lyng Motors Carlow S.F.C. with a mouth- watering local derby against neighbours Palatine at 7.30 p.m.

On the following Sunday evening The No. 1 junior team will open their championship campaign in the Talbot Hotel J.F.C. against St. Patricks at the training centre in Fenagh at 6.30 p.m.

The main action in the past week concerned the U17 team who were very impressive in defeating Mount Leinster Rangers in round 4 of the championship. The boys in blue and white got off to a great start with a Padraig Thompson goal in the early stages and further goals from Jonah Dunne, Aongus O’Shea and Cormac O’Brien left the home side leading by 4-3 to 0-4 at half time.

With dominant displays from Cormac O’Brien and Paddy Regan Tinryland kept their foot on the pedal despite strong pressure from their southern opponents. A penalty miss failed to deter Tinryland and the goal tally was increased when Aongus O’Shea scored his team’s 5th goal just before the final whistle. Outstanding for Tinryland were goalie Cian McCreanor, defenders Sam Byrne, Brian McGrath, Dannan Burke, together with Paddy Regan, Aongus O’Shea, Cormac O’Brien and Jonah Dunne.

Bennekerry-Tinryland ladies had a good week also. At senior level Roisin Byrne, Elaine Ware and Leah Mullins were part of the Carlow team that defeated Derry in the TG4 All Ireland qualifiers on Saturday last. Carlow will now play Limerick in their next game on August 11th with a place in the All Ireland semi-final at stake. At juvenile level Bennekerry-Tinryland girls won the U12 (A) championship defeating Old Leighlin at the Carlow training centre. The U14 team were narrowly beaten in their final by the holders Naomh Eoin in a very exciting match.

The Annual Tinryland G.F.C. golf classic will take place in Gowran Park on Friday 10th and Saturday 11th August. Further details from Cormac Walshe 0861945633 or Mark Morrissey 0861231208.

Sympathy is extended to club registrar Eamonn O’Sullivan from Rathcrogue on the passing of his father Sean on Saturday 7th July. Mr O’Sullivan was laid to rest in the west Cork village of Enniskeane on Tuesday last. Ar Dheis De go raibh a h-anam dilis.
