HALL OF FAME AWARD:
Carlow County Board have honoured Joe Gorman with a Hall of Fame award. Joe, who had a lengthy career playing with Tinryland spanning two decades from the mid 1950’s to the 1970’s proved to be a deserving winner of this award. Having made his senior debut for Tinryland in 1958, he quickly progressed to the county senior team and gave outstanding displays for the county in the league and championship in the early 1960’s. He had an excellent year in 1971 when he trained and played on the Tinryland team that won the County Championship, winning two more county titles in 1972 and 1975 before his retirement. He acted as chairman, secretary, trainer and selector with Tinryland over the years and was considered unlucky by many not to make the Carlow team of the Millennium.
DOUBLE AWARD FOR EAMONN: The untiring voluntary work of Eamonn Byrne in his coverage of Gaelic games involving his club has been acknowledged this year when he receives both the Carlow County G.A.A and Coiste na n"g awards for his work.
Tinryland Juvenile G.F.C were runners up in the Football Club of the year, the award was accepted by secretary Brigid Doyle. The U.16 medals were presented to Ned Deane while Cormac O’Toole received the U.12 (C) medals on behalf of the club at the presentation night in Bennekerry on Friday.
BEST WISHES TO NOEL:
Popular Tinryland road haulier Noel Moore is wished a speedy recovery after a short illness by his many local friends. Noel is at present recovering in St. Lukes hosp. Kilkenny after been taken ill on Thursday last.
SOCCER: St Josephs 0- GRS 0. This under 10 game between two of the best teams in the league turned out to be as tight as anticipated. Both teams have a number of quality players and are well disciplined. As a result there were very few chances and any that were created were well looked after by the two very good goal-keepers. Saints started well and took the game to GRS but despite a lot of possession and some good football they never threatened the GRS goal. Both the home and away defences were in top form and half time arrived with neither team having any clear-cut opportunities. The second half saw the game open up and Saints broke through on three occasions only to see the away keeper make three excellent saves. GRS also managed to create one chance but Lee Buggle the home keeper produced an excellent save. Saints did not play with there usual sparkle but were well served with some fine performances. Paul Costello was the man of the match and there were fine performances from David Townsend, Kevin Barrett and Patrick Gillman.
Under 12: St Joseph’s 6-Hanover harps 2. Saints are slow-ly starting to play the football that everyone knows they are capable of producing. Some of the football in this game was as good as any team in the league but was also still littered with basic errors that this team knows they should not be doing. Saints were by far the superior team and went ahead when Ryan Curran fired low past the keeper. Moments later the same player was brought down in the area and from the resultant penalty Jeff Abbot scored to double the lead. Saints by this time should have been leading by more but missed on four occasions due to players not doing the basics. Jeff Abbot scored just before half time to leave the home team leading at half time by three goals to nil.
On the restart Saints went to sleep and Hanover were awarded a penalty in the first minute, which they scored from to give them a glimmer of hope. Saints were uncertain for a period but then Jeff abbot latched on to a through ball to get his hat trick and give the Saints a 3 goal cushion. Again Saints thought the job was done and gave Hanover an easy goal to put more pressure on them. At 4-2 Saints then produced the goal of the game when the keeper played the ball to Connor Byrne who played it straight to Jeff Abbott for him to get his fourth goal of the game. Mikey Murphy scored saints sixth with the last kick of the game. Best for the saints were Alan Kirwan, Jeff Abbott and Keith Byrne.
