Tinryland footballers fall at first hurdle in Leinster IFC
Tinryland Intermediate footballers exited the Leinster Intermediate championship at the first hurdle when losing by the minimum margin to a more determined Erinís Own outfit at the Prince grounds in Castlecomer on Saturday. Despite playing badly for much of the game this was a match that Tinryland could still have won. Having led by 3 points to 2 at the interval the omens looked good for Tinryland who lined out in the Carlow colours when they went three points clear early in the second half through points from Paul Kenny and Paul Doyle. The home side kept in contention with a point in the 42nd minute and the Castlecomer men were back in front with 15 minutes remaining when their wing forward Ronan Ryan outran the Tinryland defence to score the only goal of the game. Erinís own who are trained by former well known athlete Dick Mullins then went three points ahead before Tinryland staged a mini revival to leave the minimum between the sides before Laois referee Eddie Kinsella blew the final whistle. Tinryland were forced to line out on Saturday without both Paul Broderick and Colm Doran who received injuries in colleges matches during the week but the team will have to improve considerably if they are to win the upcoming division 2 league final with Grange. At lot of hard won possession was lost on Saturday by misdirected and careless passing and a big improvement in this aspect of the game will be needed to survive against Grange.
