Tinryland qualify for Carlow J.F.C. (A) final with a tremendous 2nd half performance           

Tinryland 2-8           Leighlinbridge 0-10

Tinryland qualified for the Carlow J.F.C. A final when they accounted for favourites Leighlinbridge in the semi- final at Netwatch Cullen Park on Saturday last 3rd October. 13 days earlier when these two teams met in the league stages Leighlinbridge were comfortable 9 point winners which determined what team would top the division and progress straight to the semi- final. Tinryland then had to play a quarter final which they won against Rathvilly before facing the All Blacks once again in Saturdays semi- final.

With wind advantage Leighlinbridge dominated the opening half with Tinryland playing a game of containment which succeeded as the men from Leighlin only managed 6 points in the first 30 minutes. Tinryland scores were hard to come by with Alan Barrett and Ciaran Larkin the only players from the hoops managing to hit the target.

The second half began really well for Tinryland with Mark Lawlor slotting over a great point after only 17 seconds and when Dinny Farrell rattled the Leighlin net 4 minutes later the underdogs were level and had all to play for. In the 35th minute Ronan Curran put his team ahead for the first time and with their tails now up Tinryland began to dominate. Leighlinbridge staged a brief rally mid- way through the half before Padraic Whelan from a free and Eoghan Hosey with a great point nosed us ahead once again. The icing was put on the cake when centre forward Padraic Whelan crashed the ball to the Leighlin net with 10 minutes remaining and despite strong pressure from the All Blacks the Tinryland defence held firm and finished with a flourish scoring further points via Alan Barrett and sub Dean Farrell.

Tinryland will now play St Patricks in the final on this coming Friday 9th October in Netwatch Cullen park at 7.30 p.m. St Patricks were involved in a dramatic semi-final with neighbours Grange on Sunday afternoon and after extra time the sides were still level. The Tullow team then won through to the final in the penalty shoot- out.

All Tinryland players and subs contributed greatly to their win but there were outstanding performances from goalie Daniel Donegan, Eoghan Hosey, Peter Doran, Shane O’Neill, Barry Power, Gregg Murphy, Mark Lawlor and Padraic Whelan.

J.F.C. A Group 1

Leighlinbridge 4-10 Tinryland 0-13

Leighlinbridge progressed as group winners in this top of the table clash against the hosts at sun-kissed Rathcrogue on Sunday 20th September.

The old adage that goals win matches was never as true as the All Blacks found the net on 4 occassions to run out comfortable winners in the end.

The first major arrived as early as the 5th minute when Shane Farrell took advantage of a Tinryland defensive mix up and by the 25th minute the eventual winners were five points ahead after some well taken points scored by Aidan Lillis (2), Jason Daly and Shane Farrell. Tinryland ended the opening half well with the lively Mark Lawlor (2), Dinny Farrell and Padraig Whelan narrowing the margin to 3 points by the half time whistle.

After 10 minutes of the 2nd half the Leighlinbridge advantage was still 3 points but that advantage then doubled when Aidan Lillis converted his 3rd penalty of the season to give the home side a mountain to climb.

To their credit Tinryland kept plugging away but they were hit with another major when one of their defenders deflected the ball into his own net. The men in blue and white reduced the margin to 6 points once again with points from Ciaran Larkin, Evan Doyle and Mark Lawlor but a P. J. Haughney goal in the closing stages put the icing on the cake and the men from Ballinaboley deservedly progressed straight to a semi- final spot with Tinryland moving into the quarter final.

Leighlinbridge: Cian Kavanagh, Jonathan Stringer, Billy Lennon, Daniel Barron, Ciaran Casey, Sean Brennan, P.J. Haughney 1-0, Liam Brennan, Philip Kehoe, Jason Daly 0-3, Cathal Brennan, Fiach O’Toole 0-2, Aidan Lillis 1-2, Keith Lillis, Shane Farrell 1-1. Subs: Luke Kelly 0-1, Robert O’Byrne, Val Fleming, Paky Fleming 0-1.

Tinryland: Daniel Donegan, Eoghan Hosey, Peter Doran, Joey Ryan, Conor McGrath 0-1, Shane O’Neill, Ciaran Larkin 0-3, Barry Power 0-1, Peter Hennessy 0-1, Mark Lawlor 0-2, Padraic Whelan 0-1, Gregg Murphy 0-1 OG, Dinny Farrell 0-2, Gavin Power, Alan Barrett.

J.F.C. (C) group1

Tinryland 1-8 Mount Leinster Rangers 1-8

Tinryland and Mount Leinster Rangers served up an entertaining drawn game at Rathcrogue on Wednesday last 23rd September in the J.F.C. C championship. This result leaves the home team still in pole position in group 1 with one game remaining.

Rangers were fastest out of the blocks and led 0-4 to 0-1 at the first water break.

Dean Grennan (2), Jack Ryan and Niall Lynam were the MLR scorers in this phase with Richie Whyte slotting over Tinryland’s solitary point.

Both sides only managed a further single point each before the break from Gary Scully (Tinryland) and Dara Tobin (Rangers)

Tinryland began the second half on a high note and a Jason Noctor goal 2 minutes after the restart followed by quick points from Michael Mullen and Richie Whyte resulted in a 5 point turnaround as early as the 35th minute. Rory Joyce steadied the M.L.R. ship but 3 further points from Michael Mullen (2) and sub Andrew Hanly left Tinryland 4 points clear with 6 minutes remaining.

A Rangers goal from substitute Niall Canning left the minimum separating the sides with time running out. Tinryland looked to have taken all the points when Aongus O’Shea raised a white flag. However Mount Leinster Rangers gained a share of the spoils with 2 late points from one of their best players Dean Grennan.

Junior (A) Football Quarter Final

Tinryland 1-11 Rathvilly 0-9

Tinryland qualified for the semi-final of the JFC (A) with a 5 point win over Rathvilly at Bro. Leo Park on Saturday afternoon 26th September.

Despite the winning margin the men in blue and white hoops could never relax against the Wicklow border side who finished the game with 12 players. In a physical 2nd half Rathvilly players received 2 red and one black card.

Padraic Whelan opened Tinryland’s account when he converted a free after 60 seconds. This score was cancelled out by a Gary Owens point for Rathvilly in the 5th minute. Mark Lawlor restored the Tinryland lead in the 6th minute after good play by Whelan but Rathvilly responded once again with a successful J.J. Smith free. An excellent Peter Hennessy point and another from Padraic Whelan were followed by a Rathvilly point from ex Tinryland underage player Shane Keogh to leave the minimum separating the sides before the first water break.

When play resumed Tinryland enjoyed their best spell with a Ronan Curran point and a brilliantly worked Padraic Whelan goal after great play by Peter Doran, Gregg Murphy, Mark Lawlor and Alan Barrett.

J J Smith kept Rathvilly in touch with 2 quick points before Alan Barrett closed the first half scoring with a 29th minute point after more good work by one of Tinryland’s outstanding players Mark Lawlor. Half Time score Tinryland 1-6 Rathvilly 0-5.

The 2nd half began well for Tinryland with Ronan Curran increasing the advantage to 5 points in the 33rd minute after good play by Dinny Farrell, Conor McGrath, Ciaran Larkin, Shane O’Neill and Joey Ryan. Rathvilly were then dealt their first blow when their wing back was dismissed. Mark Lawlor increased the Tinryland lead to six points before Rathvilly staged a mini revival with points in the 43rd and 45th minutes. Despite their numerical disadvantage Rathvilly still looked dangerous and it took a tremendous save from Tinryland goalkeeper Daniel Donegan to keep his team in the comfort zone. The selectors then introduced fresh legs with Cormac McElligott, Gavin Power and veterans Evan Doyle and Paul Doyle entering the fray. Rathvilly went down to 13 men when a player received a black card and with a lot of space opening up Tinryland tagged on two further points via Mark Lawlor before veteran former senior star J J Smith received his marching orders from referee John Hickey. The final score of the game was a successful Padraic Whelan free in the 58th minute to ensure Tinryland progress to next weekend’s semi- final. All Tinryland players completed a good shift on Saturday with outstanding performances from Daniel Donegan, Eoghan Hosey, Barry Power Peter Doran, Shane O’Neill, Padraic Whelan, Ronan Curran and Mark Lawlor. Next week-ends semi-final will be a step up for Tinryland and improvement will be needed all round in order to progress to the Junior (A) final.

Tinryland: Daniel Donegan, Eoghan Hosey, Peter Doran, Joey Ryan, Ciaran Larkin, Shane O’Neill, Conor McGrath, Barry Power, Peter Hennessy 0-1, Ronan Curran 0-2, Padraic Whelan 1-3, Mark Lawlor 0-4, Dinny Farrell, Alan Barrett 0-1, Gregg Murphy. Subs: Cormac McElligott, Gavin Power, Evan Doyle, Paul Doyle.
