Tinryland U14 Boys team reach Feile Peil Na nOg finals in Tyrone
Underage football in Tinryland got a great boost last week when the U14 boys team qualified in fine style for the 23rd Feile Peile na nOg 2004 to be held in Co. Tyrone in early July. The Tinryland boys were in a class of their own in last weeks qualifiers handing out comprehensive defeats to Michael Davitts, O’Hanrahans and Eire Og and in the process reaching the Feile which the club last won at national level in 1999.
Tinryland amassed an amazing 12 goals and 62 points in the three 40 minute Carlow qualifiers and they will travel to the home of the current All Ireland champions with high hopes of doing well in the division 4 section where the team will be based in the rural village of Kildress. Tinryland’s hosts will be the local Wolfe Tones club and the other teams in the group will be fellow Tyrone club Rock and London. To progress in the Feile the club will have to top their group. Bennekerry-Tinryland girls U14 team have also qualified for the Feile and they will be based in Coalisland for the duration of the competition. The annual Tinryland juvenile G.F.C. race night will be held on Friday 4th June and part of the proceeds will be used to offset the cost of travelling to the Feile in Tyrone and kitting out the team.
