Tinryland continued their losing streak against Éire Óg last night in the SFL Division 1 match at Pairc Uí Bhrian. A goal in the 13th minute by Alan Barrett saw Tinryland take the lead (1-3 to 0-3) but this was quickly negated by a goal in the 15th minute from the Eire Og full forward. At the break the sides were tied at 1-5 a piece. In the second half Eire Og stormed into a three point lead and points from Paul Broderick(2), Alan Barrett and David Townsend saw the hoops take a 1 point lead in the 27th minute. However old failings came back to haunt the Tinryland side which saw them lose out by the narrowest of margins (as happened in the league final last year). The final score was Eire Og 1-12, Tinryland 1-11. Despite the disappointing result this match was played at a high intensity for the 60 minutes ans was easily the best game of the league so far.
