The 2019 Carlow Senior Football Championship is the 119th edition of the Carlow GAA's premier club gaelic football tournament for senior graded clubs in County Carlow, Ireland. The tournament consists of 8 teams, with the winner going on to represent Carlow in the Leinster Senior Club Football Championship. The championship starts with a group stage and then progresses to a knock out stage.

Then - after the club took a break from hurling altogether for several years - in 2001 Willie Cullen captained Palatine to another Junior Hurling Championship at the age of 52. A Junior Hurling Championship was captured in 1983, and an Intermediate one in 1985. He also scored 1-4 on the day.

Rangers had barely made the quarter final from group2 having to rely on a single point difference when they gained their only grouppoint against Kilbride. On a day of sporting highs and lows and numerous shocksTinryland supporters were on the receiving end of another shock when the seniorteam exited the championship against Mount Leinster Rangers on Saturday 15THSeptember. Most pundits fancied aTinryland win in this game after some good performances in what was perceivedto be the strongest group.

The panel that captured the 1952 title included: Frank McGill, James Mahon, Jack Mahon, Tadhg Hendricken, Andy Dooley, Liam Hendricken, Paddy Byrne, Tom Kelly, Mick McAssey, Sean Kelly, Billy McGuill, Billy Kehoe Jnr, Jack McAssey, James Deering, Luke Hickey, Sean Hickson, Paddy Hickey, Liam Murphy, Lar Moran, Christy McGrath, Jimmy Hayes, Pat Metcalfe, Seamus Harmon, John Brady, Mick Brady and Paschal Hayes.

Knock-out Stages[edit]

The Borris-Ballymurphy based team opened theiraccount with a point from a 45 by Eddie Byrne in the 13th minute anddespite strong play from Tinryland it was Rangers that dominated the next 10minutes scoring a point from play via John Nolan and another one from an EddieByrne free in the 17th minute. Glen Doyle with a wonderful point in the 22nd minutefinally lifted the siege after good play by Adam Dunne and Tinryland began toenjoy themselves when John Murphy levelled matters after a pass from ConorByrne. Five minutes later Tinrylandsupporters finally began to feel happy when centre back Shane Redmond crashedthe ball past the Rangers keeper after good play by Paul Broderick and ConorOToole. Try as they might Tinryland found itdifficult to break down the South Carlow team who sometimes had 14 playersdefending. The dual club started well holding on to the ball in theopening stages but it was the men in blue and white that got on the scoreboardfirst when full back John Murphy burst forward to slot over the opening pointin the 7th minute. It got even better in the 29th minute when Cormac Walsheextended the lead to 4 points after a passing movement involving himself, PaulBroderick and Conor OToole.

They were re-graded back down to Intermediate again for the 1940 season, and won that title once more in 1948, returning to Senior. This team lost to Tinryland in the 1950 final and to Ballymurphy in 1953. Much of the team that won promotion from Intermediate would go on to win the Senior championship in 1952. After relegation to Junior level following a dispute with the County Board (following a game with Milford in the early 1930s), Palatine won the Carlow Junior championship in 1936 and the Intermediate championship in 1938.

Goals from Shane Redmond and GlenDoyle left the visitors only 2 points down. Special thanks to Palatine G.F.C who donatedtheir gate takings to the Carlow Hospice. The 8 point deficit leftTinryland supporters wondering how their team would respond in the second halfgiven that their past two second half performances were very poor. A fair result. Tinryland then took the lead forthe first time in the match with time almost up. Tinryland seniors picked up their first point of theirleague campaign in an entertaining match against their neighbours Palatine atPalatine G.F.C on Friday Night. Conditions were poor but that did not stop thehome team from taking control. After a high ball was launchedtowards their goal, the Palatine defence was unable to control the situationand the ball ended up in the back of the net. But creditto the Tinryland lads, they upped their game. The home teampressed forward and kicked the equalising point. With the help of two goals, it left the homeside leading 2-6 to 0-4 at the half time break.

The final score of the game came in injury time as Dean Quinlan slipped into the Martins box and blasted into the top corner to grab the fourth goal of the game. The first score of the second half went to St. With both sides tiring and changes been made from the benches, both defences seemed determined to keep the scoring down as points were traded. Martins kept them in the game but again the home defence kept them at bay and prevented too many scoring chances. As they pushed, the home defenders, led by full back Daire Brophy and Keith Moran in the centre held Martins to a single point. Then Martins were awarded a penalty and a chance to close the gap, with the Tinryland keeper in fine form though this was not a certain score and as the penalty hit the post and was scrambled clear the Tinryland players felt it might be their day. Straight from the kick out, Tinryland grabbed another goal, as a mix up in the Martins defence allowed Paddy Regan in to stick the ball in the net. A point for St. Tinryland, now sensing that there were scores for the taking began to attack at will and from deep, Kian Dooley carrying from corner back began an attack that led to the home sides second goal of the game as Killian Fagan worked a shooting chance and coolly slotted home. Darragh Brennan, playing at full forward had been a selfless provider for the Tinryland team all game and finally decided to grab a score for himself as he banged over a point. Martins as they attacked straight from the start.

In the closing stages of the first half both teams traded points with Darragh Murphy for Rathvilly converting another free and James McGrath slotting over a Tinryland point in the 27th minute after good play by Rory Doyle. Half time score Rathvilly 1-3 Tinryland 0-4. On the stroke of half time Tinryland conceded another free and Conor Doyle extended the Rathvilly advantage to 2 points as referee Frank Fitzpatrick sounded the half time whistle. Tinryland responded with a successful free from Niall Lowry after a foul on Adam Dunne and when Lowry converted another 45 in the 24th minute Tinryland supporters breathed a little easier.

In 2015, they defeated Old Leighlin 2-12 to 2-8 in the final. But their young team came good for them eventually,[tone] with captain Jason Kane leading Palatine to back-to-back championships for the second time ever in 2015 and 2016.

Tinryland won the clubs 9th U21 title in dramatic fashion at Netwatch Cullen Park on Friday last 18th August with 2 stoppage time points after their opponents Rathvilly looked certain to win their 9th title in the 53 year history of the grade. The tag of pre match favourites did not seem to fit comfortably with the Tinryland men as they looked lethargic for much of this game in contrast to their quarter- final and semi- final wins over Fenagh and Palatine.
