GAA News - Sunday 30 Apr 2006
All roads lead to Dr. Cullen Park on Sunday next 3.30 p.m. when Tinryland U21 footballers take on Michael Davits in the Co. final.
Tinryland will be seeking a 7th U21title in this game having last won the championship in 2003. Tinryland won the first of their U21 titles in 1967 and won again in 1969 which heralded a mini golden era for the club as senior titles then followed in 1971, 1972 1975 and 1979. Next Sundays panel have all come through the successful juvenile ranks in recent years and many of the players have also contested a number of Co. minor finals. The opposition on Sunday proved their quality by knocking out a fancied Eire Og team in the semi final and the area combination from Ballinabranna, Leighlin and Old Leighlin will be as hungry as Tinryland for the title which should make for an excellent game of football at the Co. grounds. All Tinryland supporters are encouraged to go and cheer on the lads next Sunday.
