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!
We
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!

 

Antrim v Limerick!

Tineteriffe v Gleanann

The sun shone in Tineteriffe on Saturday the 7th of June as Antrim (Gleanann Primary School, Cushendall) played Limerick (Tineteriffe N.S.) in a friendly, hurling and camogie blitz. Two very competitive matches with the northeners the victors by a narrow margin. More importantly all the boys and girls had a wonderful morning, playing and chatting with their new friends.

The Antrim school was on their school tour visting Croke park on route, the blitz in Tineteriffe on Saturday and watching Tipp v Limerick in Pairc na nGael on Sunday. A great weekend for them and capped by a great victory by Limerick seniors!
