Tinryland Minor Footballers out of Carlow M.F.C.
Tinryland minor footballers must wait at least another year to win that first elusive Carlow M.F.C. title following their two point defeat at the hands of Eire Og in the first round replay at Dr. Cullen park on Tuesday last. Tinryland took a long time to get going in last Tuesday’s game but despite playing badly in the first half were all square at three points each with their town opponents at half time. In the first half Tinryland were guilty of some terrible misses but so were Eire Og who should have been well ahead at the break. Early in the second half two defensive errors gifted two goals to the defending champions and suddenly Tinryland had a mountain to climb with seven points separating the sides. It was then that Tinryland at last started to play and a brilliant goal from substitute Colm Nolan left only three points separating the sides entering the closing stages. It was all Tinryland at this stage but try as they might the boys in blue and white could only add a further point to their tally as the game entered stoppage time and it was a relieved Eire Og that welcomed the final whistle while the Tinryland lads were very disappointed at the end. The final score was Eire Og 2-5, Tinryland 1-6. Best for Tinryland were Paddy Kelly, Padraig Whelan, Ryan Curran, Cormac Walshe, Matthew O’Toole, Michael Mullen and sub. Colm Nolan.
Tinryland seniors are due to play Grange in the Carlow S.F.C. shield final next weekend.
Cormac O’Toole was the winner of the Tinryland G.F.C. supporters club September draw which took place on Friday last.
