O’Hanrahans laden with former stars and upcoming young players proved too strong for Tinryland in this division 4 clash in Rathcrogue on Thursday 7th May. Despite scoring first when Padraig Whelan converted a free in the 3rd minute the home team had to play second fiddle for most of the hour as the Blues racked up their winning score of 1-18 to 0-6. Former Carlow senior star Mark Carpenter was the tormentor of Tinryland in the early stages scoring a goal in the 10th minute after Lee Walker had opened the scoring for the town team. With the O’Hanrahans winning the midfield battle where Phillip Nolan excelled the Blues kept Tinryland scoreless again until the 16th minute when Padraig Whelan converted a ’45 and the same player was the only Tinryland man to get on the scoresheet in the entire first half. Padraig added 2 further points before the referee blew the half time whistle with O’Hanrahans leading by 1-7 to 0-4.

The second half saw the Blues in cruise control adding another eleven points to their tally with Tinryland only managing a Dean Farrell point at the start of the half and a point from James McGrath in the 50th minute. Final score O’Hanrahans 1-18 Tinryland 0-6.

Tinryland’s final game in this division will take place away to high flying Askea at 7.30 p.m. on this coming Thursday 14th May with a win probably needed to make the knockout stages of Division 4.

Team: Jack Lowry, Eddie Dowling, John Whyte, Owan O’Gorman, Cian Lawlor, Padraig Delaney, Garry Scully, Gregg Murphy, Alan Kirwan, Eoin Fields, Padraig Whelan 0-4, Killian Maher, David Townsend, Dean Farrell 0-1. Subs James McGrath 0-1, Conor McGrath, Adam Mullen, Cathal Whelan.
