Environmental Award for School
Tinryland N.S. was this years Carlow winner of the E.S.B. sponsored Environmental Awareness Awards. A plaque with a cheque for 650 euro was presented to the school at a function in the Dolmen Hotel recently by T.V star Geri Maye.

The past week was a relatively quiet one on the local G.A.A. scene with only two competitive games at juvenile level. On Monday of last week the U14 (B) squad gained their third victory in the McDonalds U14 Division 2 with a comfortable 7 points to spare over Ballon. Tinryland were always in control in this game but a string of bad wides by the home side left only three points between the sides at half time despite Tinryland domination. There was a big improvement in the second half and a goal from full forward Bobby Whelan enabled Tinryland to stretch clear at the finish. Others to impress for Tinryland were Brian O Halloran, Ryan Curran, Joey Ryan, Darren Murphy, Michael Mullen and goalkeeper Lee Buggle. Tinryland will play St. Mullins in their next game on Monday next 30th June in Rathcrogue at 7.30 p.m.
On Sunday last in Deerpark the U14 (A) squad went down to a strong O'Hanrahan's outfit in the McDonalds Division 1 championship. The final score in this game was 4-14 to 4-5 but Tinryland did play well in patches against one of the favourites for the championship. Best for Tinryland were Mark Morrissey, Donal Kingston, Cian Clancy, Conor Byrne, Matthew O'Toole, and goalkeeper Patrick Kelly. The next game for this team will take place on Monday next 30th June against Eire Og.
