Weekly News Roundup - Wednesday 9 Jul 2003



Tinryland Intermediate footballers maintained their interest in the Carlow I.F.C. with a hard fought draw with Eire Og at Spellman Park Kildavin on Sunday last. This was a game that Tinryland could have and should have won but a litany of missed chances in the second half allowed Eire Og to stay in contact and the town team could have also won as they missed two gilt edged goal chances in the closing stages. After Tinryland had scored first after 20 seconds from the boot of Paul Doyle it was Eire Og who dominated the next 15 minutes with the aid of the strong breeze. Tinryland then moved Willie Power to midfield and by the 20th minute the scores were level at 4 points each. In a hard fought end to the first half both sides scored a point apiece to leave the scores level at the break.
On the resumption Eire Og scored first and it took Tinryland 11 minutes to register their first score of the second half. Despite losing midfielder John “Brick” Farrell with a nasty arm injury Tinryland began to dominate but some diabolical shooting ensured Eire Og maintained contact going into the closing stages. With 3 minutes remaining Alan Barrett slotted over two quick points to edge Tinryland ahead but Eire Og got the equalizer on the stroke of full time to maintain their interest in this years championship.
Best for Tinryland were goalkeeper Anthony Gaule who brought off a wonderful save near the end and he was well supported by Mark Doran, John Murphy, Connie Guidera, Brian Foster, Willie Power, Niall and Alan Barrett, Paul Doyle and Paul Kenny.
Tinrylands next game will be this coming weekend against St. Andrews.
Other teams from the club had mixed luck during the week. The U14 Division 2 team qualified for the latter stages of the championship by defeating St. Mullins by 1 point on Monday of last week. Best for Tinryland were Brian O’Halloran, Colm Nolan, Darren Murphy, Michael Mullen and Darren Hanlon.
Tinryland juniors were well beaten by St Andrews in the S.F.L division 4 while the U16 team were also well beaten by a strong Ballon team.

The Flower blooms at Bellewstown races.

Locally owned racehorse Electric Flower finally came good on Wednesday last when winning the Bumper at Bellewstown races. The aptly named six year old gelding by Jolly Jake is jointly owned by Tinryland Electrical Contractor Shay Byrne and by Frank Doyle of the Arboretum Garden centre in Leighlinbridge. On Wednesday last Electric Flower was given a fine ride by his regular jockey Pa Murphy who hails from Nurney Co. Carlow.
The winning horse started a well backed favourite in the 2 mile 1 furlong race and had a comfortably winning margin at the winning post. Electric Flower is trained in Gowran by Tony Mullins and may run next at Killarney races next week.

Cemetery Mass

A large congregation attended the annual cemetery mass which was held outdoors on Friday evening last. The celebrant was Fr. John McEvoy P.P. The permanent grave caretakers Pat McArdle and Peter Nolan can take much credit for the overall maintenance of the cemetery as well as the many families who had their burial plots resplendent on the night.

Neurodevelopmental Therapy

A developmental delay can cause difficulties in a child’s life, particularly in learning. Learning to read, write, spell, add and subtract. It may also effect concentration, coordination, balance or behaviour. The Institute of Neurodevelopmental Therapy (Ireland) trains professionals from the Medical and Educational fields as Therapists. Liz Franklin, one of the founder members of I.N.D.T.I will be tonight’s speaker. Liz has many years of experience working in this area. She and local therapists Margaret Doyle, Bernie Finnegan and Regina Doheny will be available after the talk and will be happy to answer any individual queries that you may have. All are welcome and admission is free.
