The seniors maintained their 100% record in this year’s S.F.L. division 1 with a comfortable win away to St. Andrew’s on Sunday evening. The result was never in doubt after Tinryland made a lightning fast start scoring 7 points from play in the opening 15 minutes. Tinryland led by 6 points at half time and made a good start to the 2nd half with a goal from full forward Diarmaid Walshe. Despite a St. Andrew’s rally Tinryland ran out winners on a scoreline of 1-18 to 1-9. The next league game is against Mount Leinster Rangers in Borris on Sunday 23rd April.

The minors made a good start to their league campaign when they defeated Burrin Rangers by 7 points in Rathcrogue on Monday last. Outstanding for Tinryland were Dinny Farrell, Tommy Dunne, Cuan Burke, Conor Brennan, Keelan Gaffney, Eoin Hosey and Jonah Dunne.

The minor league game due to be played last evening Monday against Rathvilly was postponed due to the death of Rathvilly stalwart Paudie Doyle.

Tinryland Junior A team competing in division 3 found Ballon too strong in round 2 on Tuesday last. The team is back in action this evening Tuesday away to St. Patricks at 7.45 p.m.  in Bro Leo Park.

The No. 2 junior team will be at home to Kildavin in the S.F.L. division 4 on tomorrow Wednesday 12th April at 7.45 p.m.

At juvenile level Tinryland performed well in the U14 game against St. Patricks. Despite eventually losing Tinryland had excellent performers in Michael Regan, Seamus McCullough, Matthew Gleason and Cillian Fagan.

Club members had success in a variety of sports last weekend. Marcus Lawler and Adam Murphy had a very productive weekend at the Irish Universities track and field championships in Cork with Marcus winning the 200m in a European U23 qualifying time with Adam son of club chairman Mick 4th in the same event. The 2 boys then combined to win the relay for Carlow I.T. in a very fast time.

Club member Martin Byrne tasted success in the equestrian field on Sunday when his home bred 5 year old gelding Global Citizen won at the Louth point to point at the first time of asking. The horse is trained in Rathoe by Willie Murphy.

Congratulations and best wishes for the future to Senior player Paul Doyle and his new bride Lisa who tied the Knot on Friday last.
