Tinryland G.F.C. club notes 26th June 2022
Despite the best efforts of the weather gods to spoil the party the 2nd of 3 Summer Picnic concerts held in our club on Saturday last was a very enjoyable event.
Stars of the show were 21st Century ABBA one of Europe’s top ABBA tribute bands who travelled from the U.K. for the 1st of 2 concerts in Ireland at the weekend.
From the 1st minute that they took to the stage until their last number 2 hours later 21st Century ABBA had the large attendance rocking as they performed many of the iconic Swedish groups big hits including Mamma Mia, Dancing Queen, Waterloo and Take a chance on me. All in attendance were in agreement that this band were almost as good as the real ABBA as they all sang, looked and dressed like the original band.
The main act was well supported by “Tumbling Dice” who are a well known Rolling Stones tribute band and by local group “Luna”.
Well done to the many Tinryland club members who worked so hard on Saturday and at the clean up on Sunday.
Nine players from Bennekerry-Tinryland ladies club were part of the Carlow squad that advanced to the All-Ireland Junior semi-finals despite a 1-point loss to London at Netwatch Cullen park on Sunday last. The BT players were Ruth Bermingham (Captain), Nuala Mohan, Elaine Ware, Niamh Kelly, Sinead Hayden, Shannen Cotter, Roisin Byrne, Liz Lowry and Sinead Thompson.
It was another quiet week on the football front with our U17 team losing out to Grange by the minimum margin.
Well done to club member Adam Murphy Tinryland A.C. who reached the final of the 200m at the National track and field championships held in Santry on Saturday last. At the same meeting another former Tinryland G.F.C. player Marcus Lawler won his heat to reach the final of the 400m where he won a great silver medal clocking 47.94.
