The Senior team suffered their first defeat in this year’s league when they lost out to Eire Og in Rathcrogue on Sunday last. In a low scoring first half Eire Og led by 2 points at the break courtesy of a goal from Murtagh Ware and some well taken points from the same player. Tinryland had a number of goal chances in the opening half also but could not breach the Eire Og net. The Carlow town team added ten points to their account in the second half while Tinryland could only muster 1-3 with the consolation goal from James McGrath arriving in the closing stages. Tinryland have already qualified for the league semi-final and will play Old Leighlin in the final game in the group this coming weekend.

Despite losing to Eire Og the No. 2 Junior squad put up their best performance of the season so far and were competitive for much of last Wednesday’s division 4 game in Rathcrogue. Outstanding for Tinryland were Michael Delaney, Seamus Curran, Sean Kirwan, David O’Shea, Dean Farrell and Bobby Whelan. The No. 2 Juniors are back in action on tomorrow Wednesday away to Palatine at 7.30 p.m.

The No. 1 Junior team need to win their remaining 2 matches to reach the division 3 semi-final and they play Leighlinbridge at Paul Monaghan Park in Ballinaboley this Tuesday evening at 7.30 p.m.

At juvenile level the U14 team despite losing to a strong O’Hanrahans played very good football in a great game played on Friday last. Outstanding for the young Tinryland squad were James Hayden, Cian McGuire, Conor Carew, Jamie Fitzgerald, and Cillian Fagan.
