Tinryland G.F.C. news
The past week brought good and bad news to Tinryland G.F.C. Following the recent serious injuries to star players Paul Broderick and John Murphy last Saturday’s Bank Of Ireland football championship win by Carlow over Offaly brought further bad news for Tinryland supporters. The game was barely 5 minutes old when Tinryland’s Willie Power received a serious leg injury which resulted in him being stretchered off the field and hospitalized. All Tinryland supporters extend good wishes to all three lads for a speedy recovery from their injuries. On the field of play Tinryland juniors put up a good performance to draw with Old Leighlin in the S.F.L. division 3 semi final at Fenagh on Wednesday last. Tinryland trailed their opponents by 8 points at one stage in the first half but following some astute substitutions by the backroom team they clawed their way back into the game to lead with 2 minutes remaining. The final minutes were played out in a welter of excitement with Old Leighlin equalising with virtually the last kick of the game. The replay was fixed for the same venue yesterday( Tuesday) evening. Best for Tinryland were John Paul Moore, Ian Scully, Paul Kenny, Mark Dempsey, Peter Doran, Brian Byrne and Barry McDaniel.
Pat Doyle was the lucky winner of the Croke Park premium tickets which were raffled recently. The tickets are valid for all games at the venue for the rest of the current season. Tinryland U14s will wind down their preparation for the All Ireland feile when they compete in a mini feile hosted by Wicklow on Saturday next. A detailed preview of the All Ireland feile in Limerick will be included in next week’s notes.
