https://www.tinryland.ie Introduction by John Farrell, Chairman Tinryland A. C. The Tinryland Athletic Club booklet was produced in 1995 to mark the 25th Anniversary of the club. The booklet covers the history of Tinryland AC from its inception in 1970 right up to the mid 1990’s. It also contains profiles of the founding members of the club and star athletes who have helped to make the club a succesful force on the Irish athletics stage
“As Chairman of Tinryland Athletic Club I feel honoured to present this book celebrating 25
years of success. Few clubs have made such an impact since our inception in 1970. Our achievements are
due in no small way to the dedication, hard work and discipline of our athletes.
Our Club has been very successful at county, national and international level We have over this period of
time produced athletes of the highest calibre at track, field, road running and cross-country. Our athletes
have also been prominent in walking competitions, hill running and veteran athletics.
I am very proud of our lady athletes who are proudly carrying the club’s banner at senior and
underage level. We have an excellent record in B.L.O.E. and Community Games.
Sponsorship is vital for a successful athletic club and in this area we are delighted to have a
successful firm like Dan Morrissey Ireland Ltd. as our main sponsors.
I am indebted to my fellow officers, both past and present, for the efficient running of our club over the last
25 years. So here’s to the year 2020 when the club will celebrate its Golden Jubilee.”
