Another successful week for Tinryland G.A.A. teams
Tinryland teams had another successful time during the past week with significant wins at adult and juvenile level. At adult level both junior teams were successful with the junior (A) squad defeating Eire Og and the Junior (B) squad accounting for Kilbride. At senior level Tinryland suffered another defeat when they lost to O’Hanrahans but there were glimmers of hope in the Tinryland performance with an improved effort from previous games.
At underage level the best performance of the week came from the U16 team who defeated Eire Og by 7 points in the championship. Tinryland found themselves 4 points in arrears just before half time but a Cormac Walshe goal just before the interval left only the minimum between the sides. In the second half Tinryland came out with all guns blazing scoring 1-6 without reply.
Another Cormac Walshe goal put the home side on the road to victory and with midfielder Donal Kingston in excellent form Tinryland ran out easy winners in the end. Outstanding for Tinryland were Shane Redmond at full back, Donal Kingston and Mark Morrissey at midfield and forwards Matthew O’Toole, Cian Clancy, Paddy Byrne and Cormac Walshe. The match involving the second U16 team was postponed as a mark of respect to the late Mrs Lil O’Neill.
Tinryland U14 (B) team scored their second victory in the championship accounting for the Pal- Askea combined team.
Tinryland juvenile G.F.C. held a very successful sponsored cycle in aid of the trip to the All Ireland feile on Sunday last. Well done to all the young players who helped raise much-needed funds for the feile project. Mentors Michael Murphy and Bernard Mullen provided one of the attractions on the day when they completed the cycle on a tandem bike.
