Tinryland to Feature on National Television
The dispute between Tinryland GFC and the NRA over the proposed new motorway from Dublin to Waterford is to be a feature on the "Seachtain" bi-lingual weekly programme on RTE 1 next Sunday March 14th at 5.30 pm. There was a huge attendance of both adults and children at a Tinryland Juvenile training session in Rathcrogue on Friday last where much of the filming took place. The great atmosphere on the evening displayed the support of all concerned in the area with the club's ongoing battle with the NRA over the proposed new route.
The programme, which is presented by Siun Nic Gearailt, will contain interviews with people associated with both Tinryland GFC and the NRA.

The second half saw the home side get more into the game but the back four of Joeys were working well and with 10 minutes to go after some lovely football Brian O Neill was played in and coolly slotted his shot low past the keeper to give joeys their second goal. Best for Joeys were Alan Kirwan, Colm Nolan and Dominic Smith
