Kildavin-Clonegal 4-9                                                  Tinryland 3-7

The Carlow J.F.C. (B) knockout stages were finalised following this exciting final group 2 fixture at Rathcrogue on Wednesday last 18th July. The winners advanced to the semi-final while Tinryland progress to the quarter final after Eire Og overcame O’Hanrahans at Pairc Ui Bhrian.

After a competitive opening 25 minutes Tinryland led by the minimum following well taken points from Gary Moran, Richard Whyte, Joe Byrne and Gregg Murphy (2). Kildavin-Clonegal stayed in touch with early scores from Dylan Kelly, Eoin Roche, Mark Nolan and Richard Sinnott.

The shape of the game was then formed in a 5 minute spell just before the interval when the Wexford border team added 2-3 without reply with their goals coming from corner forward Podge Ryan and centre forward Mark Nolan after some sloppy defending by the home side.

Tinryland rang the changes at half time and one of their substitutes Ronan Curran slotted over a point within 30 seconds of the re-start before full forward Richie Whyte signalled a major revival when he found the K-C net in the 36th minute. The Kildavin-Clonegal response was swift and another Podge Ryan goal in the 40th minute extended their lead back to 7 points. Both sides then emptied their benches and with 12 minutes remaining Tinryland were awarded a penalty which Gary Moran duly converted. At the other end sub Paddy Kavanagh slotted home a 4th goal for Kildavin-Clonegal. Tinryland continued to press and were rewarded with a point and a goal from substitutes Niall Barrett and Barry Power before former Carlow senior player Richard Sinnott had the luxury of tapping a penalty over the bar to ensure that his team advanced to the semi-final as group 2 winners. One pleasing aspect from Tinryland’s point of view was that 28 players were available for this fixture. Not bad going for a rural club’s third string.

Outstanding for Kildavin-Clonegal were Liam Murphy, Andrew Nolan, Paul Kelly, Ian St. Ledger, Eoin Roche, and Podge Ryan. Tinryland’s stand out player was the diminutive Colm Kearney backed up by Gary Scully, Gregg Murphy, Eoghan Hosey, Jack Lowry and Gary Moran.

Kildavin-Clonegal: Damien Byrne, James Kavanagh, Liam Murphy, Robert St. Ledger, Andrew Nolan 0-1, Paul Kelly, Martin Boland, Killian Redmond, Barry Foley, Dylan Kelly 0-1, Mark Nolan 1-1, Ian St. Ledger 0-1, Eoin Roche 0-1, Richard Sinnott 0-3, Padraig Ryan 2-1. Subs: Paddy Kavanagh 1-0, Donnacha Ryan, Niall Hickey.

Tinryland: Lee Buggle, Fergal Kelly, Colm Kearney, Joey Ryan, Gary Scully, David O’Shea, James Murphy, Gregg Murphy 0-1, Eoghan Hosey, Gary Moran 1-2, Jack Lowry, Joe Byrne 0-1, Cathal Whelan, Richard Whyte 1-1, Padraig Delaney.

                Eire Og 5-14                                                           Tinryland 2-13

Blanket defence was non- existent in this high scoring game at Pairc Ui Bhrian on Wednesday last 27th June when the home side got back to winning ways after losing their opening game to Kildavin-Clonegal.

Full forward James Ryan opened the Eire Og account in the 4th minute with a cracking goal and when he repeated this effort 4 minutes later the men in red and white looked to be in cruise control. Tinryland responded with a string of well worked points from Richard Whyte, Gregg Murphy, Dinny Farrell, Garry Scully and Garry Moran before Leigh Callinan, Ben Costello, Andy Byrne and Diarmuid Ruth raised white flags for the home side. Andy Byrne found the Tinryland net with another Eire Og goal 4 minutes before the interval but Tinryland kept responding with a pair of well taken points from their best forward Garry Moran.

Tinryland lost one of their most influential players Richard Whyte with a hamstring injury just before the break and when play resumed James Ryan completed his hat trick when he crashed the ball past Tinryland goalkeeper Mick Delaney. Garry Moran then began to dominate for Tinryland scoring a goal and 3 points in a 4 minute spell to leave 6 points separating the sides mid- way through the second half. Eire Og responded with a Tomas Walshe goal followed by excellent points from Diarmuid Ruth, Leigh Callinan, Mark Corcoran and Cathal Myers before Tinryland finished on a positive note with another Moran point and a superb goal from the experienced Niall Barrett who deflected the ball past former Donegal senior goalkeeper Gerry McGill who was back in the Eire Og colours in this match.

Outstanding for Eire Og were goalkeeper Gerry McGill together with Conor Walsh, Cathal Myers, Leigh Callinan and the full forward line of Mark Corcoran, James Ryan and Andy Byrne who scored 4-8 between them.

Tinryland’s most prominent players were Colm Kearney, Garry Scully, David O’Shea, John Whyte, Dinny Farrell and Garry Moran who finished with a personal tally of 1-8. Tinryland will be back in action in the J.F.C. (B) when they play Kildavin-Clonegal in the final group stage game on Wednesday 18th July.

 Tinryland 3-11                                                          O’Hanrahans 0-10

Tinryland opened their J.F.C. (B) campaign with a comfortable win over O’Hanrahans at a wind- swept Rathcrogue on Wednesday last 13th June.

With a strong wind in their favour O’Hanrahans shaded matters in a low scoring first half. 

Gregg Murphy opened the Tinryland account in the 4th minute before Paul Clancy levelled matters 2 minutes later. Former senior star Colin Nolan edged the Blues ahead in the 11th minute with a point from a free before Joe Byrne replied for the home side following a scoreless 10 minute spell. The Blues then enjoyed their most productive period of the match scoring 3 points from Paul Condron, Peter Fagan and Paul Clancy before Gary Moran replied with a Tinryland point on the stroke of half time.

When play resumed Tinryland introduced Dean Farrell and Richard Whyte into the fray and within 10 minutes the men in blue and white hoops had taken the lead following well taken points from Joe Byrne, David O’Shea and Gary Moran. Paul Core and Harry Walker briefly restored the O’Hanrahans lead at the mid-way stage of the 2nd half but it was then that Tinryland went into overdrive. Using the strong wind to their advantage Tinryland went long and were rewarded with 2 goals and 4 points in a 10 minute spell. Goals from sub Richard Whyte and Gary Moran were the catalyst for Tinryland’s improving fortunes with Whyte scoring 1-2 in a 4 minute spell. The O’Hanrahans tried to stem the tide with 3 late points from their best player Colin Nolan but the icing was put on the Tinryland cake with a superb Dean Farrell goal just before referee Billy Fanning sounded the long whistle.

Outstanding for Tinryland were Colm Kearney, Peter Doran, Gary Scully, David O’Shea, Gregg Murphy, Dinny Farrell and Gary Moran together with subs Dean Farrell, Richard Whyte and Niall Barrett.

                Old Leighlin 3-10                                            Tinryland 1-10

With a place at stake in the S.F.L. division 1 semi-final this game had a championship flavour on a warm evening in Molaise Park on Tuesday last. Showing much improvement from their previous game against Rathvilly, Tinryland took this game to the home side from the start. 3 early points from Matthew O’Toole, Rory Doyle and O’Toole again gave the visitors a 3 point cushion before the home side opened their account after 15 minutes with a Seamus Kinsella point. Aaron Amond reduced the margin to the minimum before Tinryland replied with a John Murphy point in the 19th minute. Exchanges were tough at this stage and another Seamus Kinsella point for Old Leighlin was matched by a Cormac Walshe point to leave 2 points separating the sides after 25 minutes.

The fast pace of the game continued despite the warm conditions and a Mikey Bambrick point for the home team was followed by a brilliantly worked goal for Tinryland from David Townsend. The first half scoring ended with an Old Leighlin point from Cathal Coughlan to leave the visitors leading by 3 points at the interval.

Early second half points for Tinryland by Cormac Walshe and Conor O’Toole were matched by Derek Butler and Cathal Coughlan for Old Leighlin and when Seamus Kinsella raised another white flag in the 40th minute Old Leighlin supporters sensed a comeback was on the cards. To their credit Tinryland kept taking the game to their opponents and two quick points from sub Glen Doyle and Niall Lowry kept their lead intact entering the final quarter. Old Leighlin were then denied a goal when Ciaran Byrne deflected a Seamus Kinsella piledriver over the bar and the home team’s tails were up in the 47th minute when Cathal Coughlan found the Tinryland net after a good passing movement. Niall Lowry closed the Tinryland account with a point from a free in the 55th minute as the Old Leighlin onslaught on the Tinryland defence continued. David Bambrick a second half substitute slotted over a point and in the space of 3 minutes Aaron Amond found the net twice to ensure a league semi- final place for his team.

Old Leighlin: James Clarke, Declan Kelly, Michael Meaney ( Blackbush), Kevin Carpenter, Sean Bambrick, Willie Minchin, Padraig Coughlan, Mikey Bambrick 0-1, Ian Atkinson, Derek Butler 0-1, Cathal Coughlin 1-2, Declan Gough, Brendan Kinsella, Aaron Amond 2-1, Seamus Kinsella 0-4. Sub. David Bambrick 0-1.

Tinryland 2-11                                                       Leighlinbridge 0-7

Tinryland junior (A) team maintained their winning momentum in the S.F.L. division 3 with their 2nd win in 48 hours against Leighlinbridge on Saturday. With 4 changes from the starting fifteen that accounted for Palatine on Thursday, Tinryland made the early running but only led by 3 points after 20 minutes due to numerous missed chances and superb goalkeeping by Leighlinbridge netminder Christy Kearney. Early points from Gary Fields and Niall Barrett opened the Tinryland account before Val Fleming converted a free for the All Blacks. Further Tinryland points from David Townsend, Gregg Murphy, and Barrett put the home side 4 points clear before Leighlinbridge responded with points from Val Fleming and Philip Kehoe. 

On the stroke of half time Tinryland finally breached the Leighlin rearguard with a goal out of the top drawer from full forward David Townsend following good play from Dean Farrell, and Niall Barrett.

The early stages of the 2nd half saw Gary Fields and Val Fleming trade points but Tinryland then asserted with a Niall Barrett goal and 5 unanswered points from David Townsend, Gary Fields (3), and sub Padraig Delaney. With time running out Leighlinbridge finally woke from their slumber scoring 3 quick points from Pakie Fleming, sub Shane O’Reilly and Sean Brennan.

Outstanding for the winners were Peter Doran, Jack Lowry, Colm Kearney, Dean Farrell, Gregg Murphy, Padraig Whelan, David Townsend and Niall Barrett.

Leighlinbridge were best served by Christy Kearney, Pakie Fleming, David Kehoe, Adrian Dermody, Philip Kehoe and Val Fleming. Saturdays win puts Tinryland into 4th place on the league table but with other clubs having games in hand it is unlikely that we will make the knockout stages. Attention will then turn to the J.F.C. (A) which commences on week ending 22nd July against St. Patricks with further games in August against last Saturday’s opposition Leighlinbridge and Naomh Eoin. 

Tinryland: Lee Buggle, Jack Lowry, Peter Doran, Gary Scully, Colm Kearney, Adam Dunne, Padraig Townsend, Shane O’Neill, Dean Farrell, Michael Dobosz, Gregg Murphy 0-1, Padraig Whelan, Gary Fields 0-5, David Townsend 1-2, Niall Barrett 1-2.

   Tinryland 3-16                                     Palatine 0-13

Tinryland’s 2nd string were impressive in winning the division 3 points against neighbours Palatine at Rathcrogue on Thursday last 31st May. The home side were never headed after veteran corner forward Niall Barrett deflected a high delivery to the net after only 30 seconds of play. Palatine responded with 3 points via Lee Gordon, Eoin McMahon and Cian Forkan before Tinryland re-grouped to raise white flags from Gregg Murphy, Niall Barrett, Gary Fields (3,) Michael Dobosz,, Dean Farrell and David Townsend. The game should have been wrapped up at this stage as the men in blue and white fluffed 4 gilt edged goal chances. Towards the end of the opening half Palatine staged a mini rally with points from Lee Gordon and Eoin McMahon which left them trailing by 6 points at the interval. Half Time score Tinryland 1-10 Palatine 0-7.

The start of the 2nd half was a replica of the beginning of the first half as Tinryland struck first with a brilliant Dean Farrell point with the men from the Kildare border responding with points from McMahon and Cathal O’Neill.  Tinryland then began to exert control with 3 quick points from the impressive Gary Fields, David Townsend and sub Padraig Townsend before 2 well worked goals from Fields and David Townsend left 13 points separating the sides entering the final quarter.

      St. Andrews 8-11                                                                             Tinryland 5-10

Referee Billy Fanning was kept busy making entries in his notebook for all the right reasons in this amazing game in Rathcrogue on Wednesday last. 34 scores in 60 minutes is definitely a rare occurrence for an adult game in Carlow. Straight from the throw in both teams went on the attack and by half time six goals had been scored with the winners getting 4 via Robert Thompson, Neil Martin, David Tuite and Dessie Dowling. Tinryland started well scoring an early goal from Gary Fields while Jack Lowry got their second major just before the break. 

It was more of the same early in the second half with Declan Salter for St. Andrew’s and David O’Shea for Tinryland rattling the respective nets. Mid-way through the second half the Bagenalstown side held a 9 point lead but Tinryland kept responding and 2 goals from Dean Farrell and Jack Lowry kept the eventual winners on their toes. The men from McGrath Park kept up the pressure and were rewarded with some superb goals and points including 3 more goals from Dessie Dowling, sub Paddy Kennedy and Craig Doyle.

The winners had outstanding players in goalkeeper Keith Hickey together with Rory Doyle, Craig Doyle, Michael Gardiner, David Tuite, Dessie Dowling and sub Paddy Kennedy. Tinryland were best served by Jack Lowry, Gary Scully, David O’Shea, Gregg Murphy, Joe Byrne and sub Dean Farrell.

Rathvilly 2-18                                                                              Tinryland 0-4

Rathvilly were in cruise control in this one sided encounter at Fr. Ryan park on Sunday. Three   early points in the opening minutes set the tone for this game in which Brendan Murphy finished with a personal tally of 2-6.

Rathvilly despite playing against the breeze led by 1-11 to 0-3 at the interval with former Co. players Murphy, Alan Kelly and J.J. Smith pulling the strings in an overall dominant performance. The second half was a walk in the park for the home side but Tinryland did squander at least 3 clear cut goal chances which would have put a more respectable look on the scoreboard.

Tinryland who now play Old Leighlin in their final league game will quickly want to forget this display. The winners had outstanding players in the aforementioned Brendan Murphy, J. J. Smith and Alan Kelly together with Conor Doyle, Josh Moore, Danny Molloy and Brian Murphy.
