Easter Ceremonies

The following is the timetable for ceremonies in St. Joseph's Church, Tinryland for Easter week.

Holy Thursday: The Mass of the Lord's Supper takes place at 8 pm. This Mass is the memorial of the institution of the Eucharist and the institution of the priesthood by Jesus Christ. The Blessed Sacrament will be carried to the altar of repose after Mass and will remain exposed until 10 pm.

Good Friday: The Station of the Cross will be conducted along the Parochial Avenue at 3 pm (weather permitting) and will be followed by the distribution of the Holy Communion in the Church.

The Celebration of the Passion and Adoration of the Cross is at 8 pm.

Holy Saturday: The ceremony takes place at 8 pm on Holy Saturday with another ceremony on Easter Sunday at 11 am. The lighting of the Paschal Fire and Candle will take place in the church. During the Easter Proclamation, which follows immediately after the lighting of the Paschal Candle, those present are asked to hold a lighting candle. This is also done during the renewal of baptismal vows, which is later in the ceremony. The Easter water will also be blessed.


Tinryland AC Athlete Tina Doyle, Rathcrogue, raised a large amount of funds for both Tinryland NS and St. Joseph's AFC by competing in the prestigious Ballycotton 10 mile race in Cork. After hard work fundraising, Tina still posted a very good time of 69 mins 11 seconds for the tough distance.

Trocaire Collection

All collection boxes should be brought to the Church on Thursday and Friday. All collections during masses on Thursday and Friday will be added to the Trocaire Collection.

Mrs. Phyllis Kavanagh

The death occurred on Saturday last in St. Luke's Hospital, Kilkenny of Mrs. Phyllis Kavanagh of Pollerton, Carlow after a short illness. The late Mrs. Kavanagh, who was 72, had a long and distinguished career as an officer in Carlow and Leinster athletics as well as Carlow Community Games. She recently attended the Eire Og Sports Dance where her daughter Fiona received Carlow athlete of the year. A permanent fixture at athletics meetings and functions, where she accompanied her family, who all competed with distinction. For a number of years she was a prominent member of Tinryland AC. She was predeceased by her husband Joe 2 years ago. She will be sadly missed by her son Thomas, daughters Mary, Eileen, Siobhan and Fiona, grandchildren, relatives and friends. Her remains were removed from R Healy and Son Funeral Home on Sunday at 6.45 pm to Askea Church. She was buried in St. Mary's Cemetery after 11 am Requiem Mass on Monday.


The 3rd stage of the St. Abban's Four County League takes place in Gowran Co. Kilkenny on Sunday next at 2 pm. Tinryland currently lead the Grade A Team Section and are placed 2nd in Grade B and 3rd in Grade C with Pat Byrne leading the individual section ahead of Tommy Payne.
A large local contingent attended the World Cross Country Championships in Leopardstown over the weekend where the 3rd place finish of the Irish womens team provided much excitement for the crowd.
Great credit is due to Carlow athlete Geraldine Hendricken, who was part of the Irish Womens Long Course Team on Saturday. After a strong start where at one stage she was among the top 10 she eventually finished 71st.

Under 12
St Pats B 1- St Joseph's 0
Saint Joseph's lost yet another game by one goal when they played away to St Pats on Saturday. This defeat was due to the failure again of the front players to finish. On a few occasions in the first half Joey's should have scored. St Pats had one chance and scored. If the midfield and front players had put in the effort they did the previous week things could have been a lot different. Instead it was down to goalkeeper Greg and the back four to keep the score at 1-0. Sinead Lyons was excellent in the centre and Darren Costello, James Thomson and Joey Ryan played really well. The club can take great heart from the fact that they are able to play a team that can contest a game of this nature when no fewer than 13 players were unavailable due to sickness or other commitments.

Under 9
St Pats 5- St Joseph's 1
St Joseph's sat back and let Pats play for the first half and as a result of this they trailed by four goals. Against a big St Pat's team the Joey's then started to play and they scored a great goal when David Townsend scored by lobbing the keeper. Joey's dominated the second half and the final sore did not reflect Joey's contribution to the game. Best for Saint Joseph's were Jason Noctor, Owen Maddock, David Townsend and Shane Callinan. Training for the under 9s continues in the field every Tuesday from 5pm to 6pm.

The club would like to thank everyone who supported us with our fundraising events over the last few weeks. As a result of this the under 12 team travelling to Blackpool are going in style. The team is playing 6 games in England and details of the trip will be in the Nationalist in 2 weeks time.

Under 14: the club is considering having an under14 team next year and want to hear from any lads interested. Phone Jim on 0503-46013 if you want to put your name forward.
