Tinryland Juvenile G.F.C. Race Night a Huge Success
For the 10th successive year the annual Tinryland juvenile G.F.C. race night held on Friday last was a major success. Almost 200 horses were sold for the 12 race programme with one of the highlights once again being the auction race. Among the local winning owners on the night were Anne Lyons, Linda Kenny, Teresa Power, Chris Townsend, Pat Foster, Seamus Doyle, Laura Kirwan and Pat Whelan who was the lucky owner of the horse that won the auction race.
During the interval a presentation was made to handballers Padraig Townsend and David Donovan who recently won the All Ireland U17 doubles title and to Colm Doran in recognition of his contribution to Knockbeg’s All Ireland colleges victory.
The draw for two premium tickets to Croke Park for last Sunday’s games was won by Eddie Townsend while Tinryland G.F.C. secretary John Scott was the lucky winner of the main prize in the raffle a D.V.D. recorder.
Funds raised at last Friday’s event will be used to run the juvenile club for the next year. Tinryland currently has 9 juvenile teams ranging from u6 to u16.
The U14 division 1 team will be away to O’Hanrahans on Monday next in Deerpark at 7 30 p.m.
In last week’s games the U16 (B) team drew with Clonmore while the U14 team defeated Fenagh to maintain their unbeaten run in the championship. The U14 team continued their preparations for the All Ireland feile with a very useful workout with Stradbally Gaels on Friday last. In the Maurice Nolan tournament Tinryland U10s lost out by a single point to Eire Og on Thursday last but are still very much in contention in this competition with 5 more games left to play.
A table quiz in aid of Bennekerry-Tinryland ladies football club will be held in the Tinryland G.F.C. clubhouse in Rathcrogue on Friday 17th June at 8.30 p.m.
Proceeds from the quiz will be used to offset the cost of travelling to the All Ireland feile in Limerick at the beginning of July.
The Under 14 Girls team played two championship games during the week, losing to Old Leighlin and drawing with Mount Leinster Rangers.
Bennekerry/Tinryland played the final of the Mick McAssey 7 a side tournament on Saturday last and lost narrowly to Myshall on a scoreline of 4-2 to 1-10. The panel was Sinead Lyons (0-6), Caoimhe Whelan, Roisin Cleary (0-1), Simone Kelly (0-1), Amy Doyle, Sarah Doyle, Niamh O’Regan (0-1), subs Emma O’Regan, Carrie Lawlor (1-1), Lisa O’Regan, Lisa Marie Farrell and Laura O’Farrell.
