Tinryland Tigh an Raoireann
After an exciting semi-final draw with Rathvilly, this u-16 championship replay was eagerly awaited. However, a very inept performance by the blue and whites led to an easy Rathvilly win on a score of 3-8 to 0- 8 in Dr. Cullen Park on Monday evening. Tinryland mentors rearranged the team for this match which unfortunately led to a porous backline that leaked 3-6 in the 1st half.
Best for the Rathvilly side was the wily Daniel O'Brien who bagged a total of 3 goals in a wonderful display at No.13.
A very poor second half performance by both teams saw Rathvilly score just two points to Tinryland's one. A consolation for the Tinryland team is that most of the team is underage for 2001.
Best for Tinryland were goalie Evan Doyle, Mark Doran, Shane O'Neill (0-4) James O'Reilly (0-3), Alan Barrett (0-1) and Cian Moore.
