Tinryland U21s fail to
progress to Co.Final
U-21S LOSE OUT: Tinryland
U-21 footballers lost out to
a very slick Rathvilly outfit
in the replayed
COUNTYsemi final at Dr.
Cullen park on Tuesday of
last week. Tinryland were
forced to line out without
their ace forward Paul
Broderick who recently
underwent an operation
on his injured leg and this
handicap proved too much
for the boys in blue and
white on this occasion.
Tinryland were first on the
scoresheet when Padraig
Townsend pointed in the
2nd minute and the team
was still well in contention
up to the 23rd minute
when Rathvilly scored a
goal after goalkeeper
Paddy Kelly appeared to
have been fouled. Another
Rathvilly goal in the 28th
minute left Tinryland with
a mountain to climb and by
the 4th minute of the second
half 9 points separated
the sides. Tinryland introduced
a number of substitutes
which helped stem
the flow and they succeeded
in holding Rathvilly
scoreless up to the 61st
minute when Brendan
Murphy shot home the
Wicklow border sides
fourth goal. Rathvilly will
now play Burrin
Rangers in the final
which was due to be
played last night in Dr.
Cullen park. Tinryland
were best served on
Tuesday by Evan Doyle,
Mark Morrissey, Padraig
Townsend, Colm Doran,
Shane Redmond and
Cormac Walshe.
Well done to Tinryland
Minors on Co. team
Well done to the
Tinryland players who are
members of the Carlow
minor squad that recently
reached the Leinster
M.F.C. semi final with a
great victory over
Westmeath. Shane
Redmond played a very
prominent role at centre
back in the victory over the
midlanders and he also figured
prominently in
Carlowís previous wins
over Meath and Wexford.
Matthew OíToole, Paddy
Kelly and Cormac Walshe
are also members of the
Carlow panel who will now
face Louth in the Leinster
semi final on July 4th following
the break for

the past 18 months, a
sound field system has
been installed in a middle
standard in Tinryland
School to assist a child
with a hearing loss. The
childs problem is called
unilateral hearing which
means the total loss of
hearing in one ear. The
sound field speaker system
comes recommended
by Dr. Jesudas Dayalan,
an audiological scientist
attached to the HSE in
Kilkenny. The new system
benefits all the children in
the classroom as the
teachers voice is amplified
so that all the children can
hear clearly with the benefit
of four speakers strategically
placed around the
