Tinryland Win National Heritage Award
Congratulations are due to the local tidy towns committee whose entry for best heritage
project in the (Local Authority Members Association) LAMA awards took first place
recently. There were 7 finalists for best heritage project - from Carlow, Dublin,
Waterford, Monaghan, Laois, Galway and Mayo. The presentation was held in The Crowne
Plaza hotel in Dublin on January 22nd and was attended by some members of tidy towns, and
also personnel from Carlow Co. Council who supported the development of the old school
as a community hall.
The Late Mary Broderick
The death occurred on Wednesday January 26th 2011 of Mrs. Mary
Broderick (nee Matthews) of Ballycrogue after a long illness borne
with great dignity and courage. Mary, who was 62 years, was a native
of Castle Hill, Carlow. She married Des in 1971 and together they
reared a family of nine children. Sorrow came early with death of her
son Joseph in 1990 whom she cared for with great love and devotion.
Mary was always prepared to give a hand and was closely associated
with Bennekerry/Tinryland Community Games and the Tinryland AC
Rockford Race. An outgoing person, she made many friends as testimony
to the large crowd who were present at the removal of her remains from
her home in Ballycrogue to Bennekerry Church on Thursday evening and
at her Requiem Mass and burial in the adjoining cemetery on Friday.
She will be sadly missed by her husband Des, sons Kevin, DJ, Leo and
Noel, daughters Bernie, Margaret, Mary Clare and Teresa, brothers,
sisters, sons in law, daughters in law, brothers in law, sisters in
law and 15 grandchildren. Remains were removed from her home on
Thursday evening at 6.20 pm to St. Mary's Church, Bennekerry, arriving
for Reception Prayers at 7pm. Funeral Mass took place on Friday at
11am, followed by burial in the adjoining cemetery.
Tinryland Variety Group
The Tinryland producers recently attended a meeting in Wexford to arrange
dates for the South East Tops. Tinryland will stage their first show on Friday
4th March while their second show will be staged on Friday 25th March.
Tinryland will face teams from Adamstown and Kilrane/Rosslare Harbour on these
nights. Tickets will soon be available. Adult tickets are priced at ?10 while
children's tickets are 5. Following an objection from our group last
year, the adjudicators for this competition have been changed for this
year. It was decided that there will be one judge for the heats. Eddie
Wymbury from Waterford has been nominated for this task and the group are very
pleased with this decision.

should contact us as soon as possible. Any adults that wish to join
