Tinryland lose in Schools Final
Having been well beaten in the early rounds by Bennekerry, Tinryland were determined to put up a much better show in the Carlow Schools Division 2 Final on Saturday last. They had defeated Ballyconnell a few days earlier in the semis and felt confident. At half time after some poor scoring efforts by both sides, Bennekerry led by 1-4 to 1-2. On the change over, Bennekerry with the aid of the wind, completely dominated and scored a further 2-3 to Tinryland’s solitary point. There was no denying Bennekerry who were worthy winners of the Nationalist Cup for a historic third time in a row. For Tinryland, James Murphy had a great game in goals while Colm Curran and Cathal Whelan in defence, midfielder David Townsend and forwards Martin Deane and Eoin Maddock all had good displays.
