Tinryland will face Eire Og in this year’s Carlow Senior Football Championship final following the weekend’s semi-finals.
Tinryland overcame Bagenalstown Gaels in a low-scoring affair in the first game of the day with Paul Broderick leading his club to an 8-point to 3 defeat of Eddie Scally’s side. His performance also earned him the Man of the Match accolade after the game where he kicked half the points for his team.
Tinryland chairman Bernard Mullen paid tribute to former intercounty star Broderick after the game.
“Paul’s a class act and this was his stage today.”
“Poor conditions outside, we keep the ball well, bring it up into the areas and Paul will take care of business.”
“The script was written really.”
