Minors through to Final: Tinryland minor footballers gave a very impressive performance in Dr. Cullen Park on Friday evening last to overcome the challenge of Kildavin/Clonegal on a score of 5-21 to 1-8 to reach their second consecutive Co. Final. They will again meet Eire Og on Sunday Sept. 3rd. After fifteen minutes, with Tinryland leading by 4 points to 2 Kildavin/Clonegal suffered their first killer blow when a well worked move by Tinryland's star Paul Doyle was finished to the net by Trevor O'Reilly. At the interval Tinryland led by 2-10 to 1-4. K/C came more into the game in the second half, but were frustrated by an excellent Tinryland goalie in Anthony Gaule. In the space of a few minutes Gaule saved a penalty, and shortly afterwards brought off a great reflex save. This ended the south Carlow challenge and Tinryland ran out easy winners. Tinryland had great players in Paul Doyle (2-5) John Doyle (1-5) Trevor O'Reilly (1-2) Brian Foster (1 goal -penalty) Alan Barrett (0-2) Cian Moore (0-2) Willie Power (0-2) James O'Reilly and Anthony Gaule.
