St Patricks 7-13                                                       Tinryland 2-9

Former senior outfit St. Patricks proved too strong for Tinryland’s second string in the opening round of the Talbot Hotel Carlow J.F.C. (A) at the Fenagh training centre on Sunday evening 22nd July.

The first half was a competitive affair with Tinryland leading by 4 points at one stage courtesy of a cracking individual goal from Ronan Curran and a quintet of well taken points from Shane O’Neill, Ciaran Larkin (2), Mark Lawlor and Mark Dempsey. St. Patrick’s came more into the game at the half way stage of the first half with 2 Jack Kennedy goals but Tinryland remained competitive with a brilliant goal from Mark Dempsey after great work from Ronan Curran.

Tinryland were dealt a blow just before half time when Padraic Whelan received a harsh looking red card from referee John Hickey and a further blow was dealt at half time when Keith Jackson and Liam Fitzpatrick both had to retire with injuries. Half time score St. Patrick’s 3-6 Tinryland 2-6.

The second half was a one way affair with the Tullow team adding 4 further goals to their tally courtesy of Paddy McCall, John Fitzgerald, Cathal Murray and Shane Rohan.  Tinryland could only manage 3 further points in that second half from substitute Niall Barrett, Ciaran Larkin, and Barrett again on the stroke of full time.

Tinryland’s most prominent players on Sunday were Peter Doran, Conor Ryan, Mark Lawlor, Shane O’Neill, Ronan Curran, Mark Dempsey (until injured) and Ciaran Larkin. Tinryland’s next outing in the Talbot Hotel J.F.C. (a) will be against Leighlinbridge on August bank Holiday weekend 5th August.

The final group game will be against Naomh Eoin at the end of August.

Tinryland: Chris Townsend, Colm Kearney, Peter Doran, Liam Fitzpatrick, Shane Webb, Conor Ryan, Tommy Dunne, Keith Jackson, Mark Lawlor 0-1, Padraic Whelan, Shane O’Neill 0-1, David O’Shea, Ronan Curran 1-1, Mark Dempsey 1-1, Ciaran Larkin 0-3. Subs: Niall Barrett 0-2, Eoghan Hosey, Padraig Delaney.
