Minister visits Tinryland
THE ongoing issue concerning the construction of the proposed new motor-way on part of the Tinryland GFC property at Rathcrogue was taken a step further on Tuesday of last week when the Minister for Transport Martin Cullen visited the club.
Accompanied by his Dail colleague M.J. Nolan and local councillor Enda Nolan, Minister Cullen was given a full presentation by the Tinryland GFC committee on the impact and consequences that the proposed new motorway will have on the club and the community in general.
The minister spent one and a half hours in the club and was full of admiration for what Tinryland GFC has achieved in its development to date and the service it provides to the community.
Tinryland GFC is hopeful that the minister will use his influence to ensure a positive and fair outcome for one of Leinster’s longest established GAA clubs that currently caters for over 200 members including 15 adult and juvenile teams.
