MINORS IN CO. SEMI FINAL: Tinryland minor footballers will contest the county minor football (A) semi-final against Michael Davitts on Saturday. The winners will meet Eire Og in the final on Sunday, October 16. Since their quarter final victory over Burrin Rangers the minors have prepared well under their mentors Paddy Townsend, John Barrett and Paul Kenny and hopes are high that the team can reach another Co. final. Tinryland G.F.C. held a pre A.G.M. on Monday last which was attended by a facilitator from Carlow Co. board. The AGM proper will take place in early December.
All in Tinryland G.F.C. were delighted to read in last week’s Nationalist the good news story of the return after 57 years of Paddy O’Sullivan’s 1944 Leinster Senior championship medal, which was stolen in Waterford in 1946 and located recently in a pawn shop in Tramore.
Tinryland legend Paddy was re presented with the precious medal at a Carlow GAA function in the Dolmen Hotel on Thursday, September 22.
LADIES FOOTBALL: Bennekerry-Tinryland played St. Forchtern’s in the final of the Carlow 11 a side championship on Saturday and were unlucky to lose by 1-6 to 1-2 after a good game of football.
In the first period, B/T opened the scoring through a Sinead Lyons point from a free and another point from open play. Then Christine Scully was unfortunate to see her shot hit the post before St. Forchtern’s scored 1-2 without reply to lead by 1-2 to 0-2 at the break.
B/T started the second half bright-ly and were rewarded with a Roisin Cleary goal. From that moment on, St. Forchtern’s cancelled out B/T and scored 4 further points to win by 1-6 to 1-2. For B/T Clodagh Behan had a fine game in goal.
