Fourth class soccer competition!

Fourth class had a great outing to the sports complex in Cappamore sports centre on Thursday 24th of October. They were taking part in a futsall competition. This is an indoor version of soccer. They had a boys and a girls team and everyone really enjoyed the morning.

Futsal is the official FIFA version of the indoor 5 a side football. It is played between two teams of five players, one of whom is the goalkeeper and up to seven substitutes per team may be used.

Unlike some other forms of indoor football, the game is played on a hard court surface delimited by lines; walls or boards are not used. Futsal is also played with a smaller ball with less bounce than a regulation football.



Football Final; November, Monday 11th, in the Gaelic Grounds.

Tineteriffe are back in the Gaelic Grounds!

On Thursday the 10th of October, Tineteriffe travelled to Boher to play a football blitz.

They played Caherelly in the first game. Shane scored a great goal to make it one goal to nothing. Caherelly came back in the second half to draw by scoring three well earned points.

Boher was in very wet and mucky as the field was destroyed however that didn’t stop them comfortably beating Castle Connell five three to one, one.

They topped their group because they beat Castleconnell more than Caherelly did. They then went on to beat Ahane in a well fought semi-final .

Tineteriffe will play in the final against Caherline in the Gaelic grounds.

Tineteriffe's Girls Football Team.

Hard luck to the girls' football team. Having won both of their matches it came down to a final match against Murroe to qualify for the finals in the Gaelic Grounds.

A very tight first half failed to seperate the teams. However in the second half the wind picked up against the Tineteriffe girls and it was a struggle to fet the ball up the pitch. Hard luck girls and better luck in the hurling competition.



Sports Day, June 2019!

Tennis Champions, June 2019

East Limerick Camogie Winners!

Congratulations Tineteriffe's Camogie team!

On Monday 10th of June a convoy of cars headed to the Gaelic Grounds. The fifth and sixth class girls were taking on Ahane N.S. in the East Limerick 9 aside camogie final. It was great to be in the Gaeilic Grounds the day after Limerick beat Clare emphatically and play in the footsteps of the Limerick stars.

Nerves got the better of the girsl in the first half and Ahane went in a goal and two points the better. Their coach, Mrs. Meskell told the girls to keep working and the dividends would come.

And so it came to be! Momentum swung Tineteriffe's way when early in the second half, captain Fiona, led the way with two fine goals. Three more goals sealed the victory for the girls.

The convoy returnel with beeping horns and were welcomed by the rest of the school, waving flags and cheering. Speeches from the captain and Mrs. Meskell told us the story of the day.

Well done all concerned!

These are the boys that played on the Tineteriffe indoor hurling team in Caherconlish. It was a competitive competition with four teams invloved in round robin matches. Theboys played Doon, Caherelly and Caherconlish.

We had a great start with a win aginst Caherconlish N.S. Next was the Doon team. These were a stronger opposition and were the ultimate winners of this round of the competition. Our final match was against Caherelly, a tightly fought match with Caherelly the vitors in the end.

The boys were a little disapointed but enjoyed the afternoons sport. They are looking forward to the outdoor blitz next term! Thanks to all who organised the competition!

Best of luck to Colum in the East Limerick team.




John Kiely visits Tineteriffe!

John Kiely visits!

Tineteriffe were delighted to welcome John Kiely on Friday afternoon to the school. The children gave him a guard of honour as he passed them in the yard! Following high fives all round, he came to the hall to answer some of the many questions the children had for him.

They wanted to know his thinking behind his choice of selection, his favourite player, the best goal of the season, what he thinks of Joe Canning as a player, the most improved player, how he felt in the last minute of the game!

Mr Kiely answered all of the questions thouroghly with alll of us enjoying his every word. As one second class child said as she left the hall, 'that was brilliant'.

He promised that the Liam McCarthy would be coming soon!

We sang a verse of Limerick you're a Lady to complete a lovely afternoon!

Tennis Championship 2018!


Win for Tineteriffe girls in the Camogie Final!!

What a super day for Tineteriffe in the Gaelic Grounds on Monday, June the 11th. The Tineteriffe girls got off to a blistering pace putting Ahane N.S. immediately on the defensive. They showed superior strength on all parts of the playing field and won the match comprehensively.

Orla, accepting the trophy on behalf of the team, thanked her fellow players for their hard work and committment. She thanked Mrs Meskell for training them. She also thanked the parents and supporters for coming.

Finally, three cheers for the Ahane girls for their fine display.


Tineteriffe pull off the double!

The Tineteriffe boys cheered with exuberance when the final whistle went. It was a tight encounter, with Tineteriffe pulling away by a needed goal in the dying seconds.

Ahane has started the stronger, putting a goal and a point on the scoreboard quite quickly. But before half time, Tineteriffe scored a goal and the boys knew they were in with a chance.

The second half was in the balance, when Tineteriffe got a bevy of goals. However Ahane kept reducing the margin with some well taken points. They got within a point when Tineteriffe got the much need goal to give them a four point victory.

Ecellent workrate and determination saw them through.

Donnacha, the captain thanked players, supporters and trainer. And as Orla had, ended with three cheers for their opponents.



Hurling Blitz in Boher, May 2018

Match 1

Tinneteriffe v Roxborogh

Tinneteriffe didn’t let anything past them the whole game, scoring point after point, goal after goal. A Tineteriffe win.

Tinneteriffe Donoughmore

This team did put up a fight against us, even though they lost to Donoughmore in the group stages,they were a good team.They scored a few points and a goal but we still came out on top. That left us with 2 wins out of 2 so we were the top in our group and we had to play Killinure in the semi final. In the other tie there was Donoughmore V Ahane.

Tinneteriffe v Killinure

So our match kicked off with Killinure getting a good few scores and it wasn’t looking good for us. Before half time we had scored 0-2 and Killinure had 1-2. At half time we asked Patsy (the referee) ‘Whats the score?’, and he said 1-2 to 0-1. We asked why, but the score stayed the same.

So we were 1 goal and 1 point down. You would think we lost all hope, but a free that went in...GOAL to us!

Patsy gave a free to Killinure but out of nowhere a Killinure player pulled on Donnacha Hogan’s knee. After the free was given, it changed to a throw in which Tinneteriffe won! We tried for a point it dropped short for a Goal!.Tinneteriffe were back in it. Last puck of the game Colum Hanley received the ball from a puck out from Cathal Mulcahy. Colum Hanley sprinted with the ball down the wing, played a beautiful ball in front of Donnacha Hogan, a lovely flick up into his hand...Goal! That’s when we knew Tineteriffe 4 th 5 th and 6 th were into the 11 a side final against Ahane.

Mini 7s Camogie in Doon.

Mini 7s East Championship

Some of our girls have been involved in the mini 7s camogie competition. They played Knockea and Oola on a very cold and windy day in Doon last week. The girls played brilliantly and qualified for the East Limerick Finals. There they met Lisnagry, Knockea, Crecora, and Caherelly. Having won all their games they looked forward to the last game against Caherelly. The winner of this game would go through to the county final. 

The girls battled hard in what was a great game of camogie. Lots of skill and determination were displayed by the girls but unfortunately Tineteriffe were not victorious this time. 




Mini 7s Football in Caherelly.

Mini 7s Football Competition, March 2018.

The boys and girsl travelled to Ballybricken GAA field to participate in the mini 7's football competition. This competition had initially been postponed by Storm Ophelia and had Storm Emma to contend with this time round. It was a bright blustery day in Caherelly.

Fot the boys this was their first outing in the East Championship. They were up aginst tough opposition in Roxborogh and Crecora. In the first match, Crecora led but the boys redoubled their efforts and with some super goal taking, came out victors. next came Roxborogh. Their team were very strong and led by three goals at half time. Again the boys never droped their heads and in the second half and drew the match! This meant there was a play off to see who would meet Lisnagry in the east semi-final. Unfortunately for the boys they were beaten by a point. They performed really well, good sportsmen on the field.

The girls had reached the east final. This was their second outing in the mini 7s competition. They played Caherelly, Roxborough and Lisnagry. Again very tough opposition for the girls.


Indoor Hurling and Camogie!


Football Season Autumn 2017


On Monday the 10 TH of October we arrived at Ahane pitch everyone was full of enthusiasm.

Our first match was against Lisnagry. Both teams were competitive. We had to fight hard to win. It was a good match but Tineteriffe took the win.

Our second match was Murroe Boher both teams did their best to win. But Tineteriffe were winning in the first half. Unfortunately in the second half it went downhill. Everyone tried their best but it was a win to Murroe by a goal.

Our last match was against Ahane we were disappointed that we did not win our last match. Everyone was under pressure because everyone wanted to go to the final. It was not looking good because Ahane scored a goal in the first few minutes but Tineteriffe led their way to victory.

We were on our way to the final!!!

On the 25 th of October, we were on our way to the Gaelic Grounds. It was a nerve wrecking bus journey. Some 4th 5 th and 6th girls came to support. We had played against Murroe already. Unfortunately, we lost the first time. We were all nervous and excited. The whistle blew and we were off. We were off to a great start by getting the first two points. Then Murroe came back. Before we knew it, the whistle blew and it was half time. We were up by 1 point. The second half began and before we knew it Murroe got a goal. We were so disappointed we thought we were going to lose. We didn’t give up and came back stronger than ever. We got a point, then a goal. Our spirits lifted and the final whistle blew. We sprinted to the ref and asked the score. Tineteriffe won and took home the plaque.

On the bus journey home we were full of joy. All the school was out chanting for us. It was a great experience.

Hopefully they will bring it back again next year

By Niamh and Orla, 6th Class!

Win for Tineteriffe!

The girls battled hard and through pure committment and determination beat a strong Murroe N.S. football team to bring home the cup to Tineteriffe.It was the 9 a side East football final held in the Gaelic Grounds!

Great cheers went up around the school as the news broke that the girls had won! As news of their eminent arrival emerged, the school all went outside to welcome the home coming team with cheers and banners.

Mrs. Meskell ( trainer),explained to the large welcoming committee how tight a match it was with nothing seperating the teams at half time. Captain Sarah thanked her trainer, the parent supporters and expecially her teammates for their efforts.

The girls are very proud of their win and rightly so!! They have qualified for the next stage of the mini 7s which will be played after the mid term. Best of luck to them in that!


October, 2017

Tineteriffe boys had an energetic day in Boher on the 2nd of October. Their first match was against Killinure, but a strong revivial in the 2nd half was a little late and Killinure won narrowly. Next match was against Ahane. Tineteriffe began much stronger and this good start, despite a strong resurgence by Ahane, saw them through to victory.

This meant that Tineteriffe had qualifed second from their group and had to play the strongest team from the other pitch to make it to the final. Caherline were Tineteriffe's opponents and from the first kick showed their dominance. They were worthy winners and best of luck to them in the final in the Gaelic Grounds.

Although disappointed, the boys were pleased with their day out and enjoyed the cameraderie that comes of being part of a team.

Mini 7's

The mini 7's competition was held in Doon GAA field.


Tennis Finals in Tineteriffe!

In the month of June the school becomes tennis mad, with tennis rackets arriving every day for practices. For the 5th and 6th classes it means the boys and girls tennis championship is approaching! The draw was made and the tournament began in earnest in the last week of June. Both the boys and girls matches were competitive with some interesting results!

Over the last few years it has become the tradition to hold the finals on the last day with benches and chairs brought down to the court with the whole school watching. This year Mrs Enda O' Mahoney had presented two new cups for the tournament, one for the boys and one for the girls, so we welcomed her to the finals to present them to the winners.

The first final was the girls with Melissa and Niamh the finalists. There was a strong breeze which did affect some of the play.In the end it was a victory to Melissa, with her name being the first to be engraved on the new cup.

Finally it was the boys championship match. The second game went to deuce on at least ten occasions with Matthew winning the second game to bring the match to the third and final game. This time Jamie was the more accurate and claimed the cup.

Well done to both pairs of finalists for great entertainment!


Visiting Champions!

We were delighted to welcome two sets of champions to Tineteriffe on June 30th! There was great celebrations on Sunday night in Cappamore as the Feile bus arrived back from Fermanagh with the victorious U14 football winners! As Doug explained the final two matches were very tight and required a great effort on the part of the boys. Three past pupils, Mikey, Doug and Tadhg visited with four present pupils, Ultan, Seán, Jamie and Matthew who were also part of the team.

On the Saturday night the East/South divisional team were also participating in the Celtic Challenge final in Carlow. Again as Jack explained,a very tight match that went to extra time again with the Limerick team being victorious. It was great that Ollie Coffey their manager was able to visit also. He praised both sets of champions and encouraged them to continue to develop and participate in GAA games. Ronan, Jack, Kevin and Conor were the past pupils from Tinteriffe that were on the team. To conclude Ollie had two awards for best and fairest player of each game to present, on to Jack and the other to Kevin.

Finals Day!

Best of luck to Tineteriffe hurling and camogie teams. Booth have qualified for the finals in the Gaelic Grounds on Wednesday the 7th of May. Tineteriffe boys will play Caherline N.S. and the girls are against Ahane!

On the 15 th of May the girls in 5 th and 6 th travelled to Boher GAA Pitch to compete in the East Limerick championships. They warmed energetically to find out in disappointment that there was no referee. Everyone moped around waiting to clarify if the teacher could find two referees. The weather picked up and with astonishment two referees arrived.

Tineteriffe’s first two matches were won with ease. The goalie and some of the backs never even touched the sliotar. Next up Tineteriffe were playing there arch enemies. They beat them last year but lost against them in the football. It was a fairly even match and everything was level with two minutes to go. Both team were determined to win. Next minute Tineteriffe had a match winning opportunity. Orlaith O Malley stepped up to take the 65. She stuck the ball and it flew over the bar. Everybody cheered with joy. The referee blew his whistle and it was all over.

There was one match left. No matter what the score was Tineteriffe were through to the final. Of course Tineteriffe beat Killinure after a tough game. The final will be held in the Gaelic Grounds on the 7 th of June.

Melissa; 6th Class

Tineteriffe Boys Reach the Final.

On Tuesday the 11 th of May Tineteriffe boys travelled to Boher pitch. It was a beautiful day and beautiful conditions for a hurling match.

The boys warmed up and were ready to go at 12:00 and Patsy Coffey threw in the ball. Tineteriffe were playing Killinure. Killinure were playing down the slope in the first half. Tineteriffes attack was very strong and at half time Tineteriffe were winning after a strong performance. Tineteriffe made a few changes and were back out for the second half. Teneteriffe cruised through the second half.

Tineteriffe went on to win the rest of the matches and are now through to the East Limerick 11 a-side final. It will be played in the Gaelic Grounds.

Matthew; 6th Class

On the 11 th of May Tineteriffe boys were competing in the east limerick school championship. It was held in Boher GAA field. In the first match Tineteriffe played Killinure. The tension was high because Tineteriffe had beaten Killinure in the last three years. Patsy Coffee was the referee. Tineteriffe got off to a great start with 2 points from the first 2 plays. The Tineteriffe defence was indestructible. Tineteriffe were dominating the exciting physical first half.

The ball was thrown in for the second half. Tineteriffe came on with three subs . It did not change the possession or the scoring. Tineteriffe had the momentum after a brialliant performance in the first half. Killunure got tired and that’s when Tineteriffe showed their ability . Tineteriffe won all their games and now go on and to face Knockea in the a Gaelic rounds.

Seán; 6th Class

The boys and girls in 6 th class were victorious in the East Limerick Championships. They’ve been training very hard so they deserve the win They’re now heading to the Gaelic Grounds on the 7 th of June. They’re so excited I hope they win! I knew they won when they walked into the door with delight. All of them had a grin from ear to ear.Even though I’m not interested into hurling I do hope they win in the Gaelic Grounds on the 7 th of June. Good luck to the boys and girls.

Billy M; 6th Class


On the 15 th of May 2017 the Tineteriffe camogie team played their qualifier. Unfortunately the referees were unable to attend and all the teams were crestfallen. After a few tense moments of sheer panic the trainers managed to contact a few more qualified referees and the games began. After two matches the girls were still going strong, Winning the two previous matches had got the adrenaline going and the pulses racing. If the team could manage to win this third match they would be through to the finals held in the Gaelic Grounds.

They were playing Ahane who were very tough scoring the first goal of the game. The opposition scored the first goal of the match and cheered victoriously but little did they know it was all about to change. Tineteriffes defence and attack strengthened and it all became fast pace, Tineteriffe scored an unbelievable goal and after a great late free they scored a point. The performance was unbelievably good and o now both boys and girls victorious are going through to the East Limerick finals.

Disapointment in the Gaelic Grounds!

When we went to the Gaelic Grounds , the boys and girls in 5th and 6 thwere in the final. The boys played first but sadly they lost by three points to Caherline. While the boys were playing we and the 4 th were cheering them on despite them suffering a heavy defeat .After a while we were sent to changing room to put on our football boots. Then we went on the pitch for our warm ups.We were equal at half time but Ahane beat us by the one goal. When we got back it was half past 2. The opposition played well. Both girls and boys played well but disappointedly we both lost in the finals .

 When we went to the Gaelic Grounds we were very eager. The pitch was huge and we saw all the teams playing and getting ready. We were in our Tineteriffe jerseys and ready to go. The boys went on first and at the second half we warmed up and did our stretches. The boy’s unfortunately lost against Caherline. Next was our match against Ahane and we were ready to go. We warmed up and we tried our best but unfortunately we lost by a goal. 4 th 5 th and 6 th came. Hopefully we will win next year. It was so fun to play in the Gaelic Grounds. Hopefully we will win in hurling.

On Wednesday the 26 th, two teams, Tineteriffe and Caherline, gathered at the Gaelic grounds for what was to be an exciting match. After an encouraging speech from the captain of Tineteriffe (Billy) and vice captain (Jamie), the game kicked off. Starting off well, both teams rallied the ball back and forth, looking for a score. Eventually the Caherline team managed to squeeze a point. Undeterred, the Tineteriffe team pushed back, only to be greeted by a goal from Caherline! Then Tineteriffe got an outstanding point! After we got our first score then our heads were in the game. But after score after score after score, we sadly did not win. Caherline won by a goal, it was a tough day for the boys.

Caherline defeated Tineteriffe two goals four points to one goal four points.

Yesterday was a dreadful day for the Tineteriffe Gaelic football teams. Both teams did well to get to the final but came home with nothing to show for it. The boys game was first. We were playing Caherline. Our captain Billy Daly went in for the toss and we won it. We had beaten them twice already but that didn’t help. Some of the team were very confident and others just didn’t think about the two wins. We started slow but got into it and half time it was 1-1 to 3 points to Caherline. We were playing alright but not up to our standards. In the second half our discipline let us down. Caherline were letting the ball do the work but we were trying to run it a lot of the time. There was no encouragement from anyone. We could have got a few more decisions from the referee however that did not happen. We gave away soft frees which should not have happened. Our scorers were: Conor, David , Matthew , Sean Mc and Sean H. On the day Caherline were better team.

On Wednesday 26 th of October 2016 Tineteriffe came up against Caherline in the Gaelic Grounds. It was a tough match but at the end of the day there had to be a winner and that was Caherline. Tineteriffe`s captain was Billy and the vice captain was Jamie . The final score was 1-5 to 2-5. The referee was a bit against us and to be honest we definitely had it in us to win but in the end we were not victorious. It really was a shame that we lost since we had beaten Caherline by quite a lot in the qualifiers.

The girls team were playing their final on the day as well and they also came home with no trophy .

Indoor Hurling, January/ February 2016

Well done to 4th class boys who participated in an indoor championship in Caherconlish! It was an exciting afternoon with matches against Knockea N.S, Scoil Chaitriona ( Cappamore) and Caherconlish N.S.

All matches were close encounters and the final match was the ultimate decider! If either Scoil Chaitriona or Caherconlish had won their battle, then there would have had to be a play off against Tineteriffe. However they drew! Which meant we go forward by the narrowest of margins!

Girls Indoor Camogie Team!

Round 2 Boys Competition!
had a slow start aginst a strong Lisnagry team and were beaten in our first match of the 2nd round. Next was Murroe , a match which was tightly contested but went Tineteriffe's way. To be in with a chance we needed to beat Doon. Our 3rd match started well with Tineteriffe ahead by three goals, but Doon clawed it back. The two teams were evenly matched, but Doon were stronger towards the end and were the tournament victors.

Great determination from the Tineteriffe boys. Well done and hard luck!

3rd and 4th Class Tournament in Murroe!

In the first match against Killinure, Tineteriffe won well, by a goal and two points . The team played well, everyone got stuck in and always won the breaking ball. In the second match against Ahane, Tineteriffe whitewashed them, as they didn't score a single point. In the last match, it was more even and Killinure were winning initialy but with a change of keeper, we came back. The mid-fielders were on fire and the defenders were rock solid. For the strikers the goals were like a punching bag. Although we were playing a match that happens once in a lifetime, we were only one point up. Even worse, a Killinure player burst through and went for a shot to try and score. But the goalie had other plans. He leaped up and reached out and stopped the ball with the tip of his hurley. We had won! We won all three matches and cheered our way home!

Culainn: 3rd Class reporter!

Match 1; Tineteriffe won. 3-2 to 1-0. All the ball was in the Ahane half. The match was won thanks to great sidelines, daring points and crucial saves.

Match 2; Tineteriffe won. 2-3 to 0-3. As in the first match, all of the ball was in Killinure's half.

Match 3; Tineteriffe won. 2-4 to 1-3. The ball was moved about more evenly on the pitch in this match. This was a tighter match for Tineteriffe and thanks to a last minute goal , Tineteriffe N.S. won the tournament.

Hurling Season, Summer 2014

3rd and 4th classes had a great day in Doon participating in their hurling blitz. Wonderful weather and some great hurling. The boys won one, drew one and lost one match.

Camogie final day in UL.

Round 4; Well done girls! They played Lisnagry in their last match of the group. They led by three goals at half time but Lisnagry attacked strongly in the second half. Nailbiting stuff wth Tineteriffe the victors. They meet Crecora in the final. The last time these two met, it was a draw!

This was the last match for the boys in this group. Short a few players Ailbe and Emily joined them to add some strength. It was a draw at half time. Unfortunately although Tineteriffe battled really strongly, Killinure won in the end by a comfortable margin.

Round 3; The boys team played Nicker N.S. at home in Cappamore. A keenly contested match with little to seperate the sides, it was won in the end by Tineteriffe. Next match for boys and girls teams is the 1st week in June with their final match of the season before the finals on the 9th of June.

Round 2; The boys' team played Ahane N.S. in the second round. Ahane got off to a fine start with goals in quick succession. The team curbed this in the second half but scores didn't come easily and Ahane were the winners. The girl's team led by two goals at half time, but Crecora came back strongly in the second half and were leading at one stage by 3 points. Great defensive work by Tineteriffe and a well worked goal, brought the teams to level scoring as the whistle blew! Well done girls!

Round 1;A great start by Tineteriffe's hurling and camogie teams, as both returned victorious from their opening matches. The boys played Knockea N.S. in a skillful encounter with Tineteriffe finishing comfortably in the end. The girls led at one stage by 6 points, but a goal by Roxborough put them back into contention. It was a nailbiting finish with Tineteriffe winning by a single point. Keep up the good work!
