Leitrim Scór na nÓg
The Leitrim Scór na nÓg finals were held in Manorhamilton this evening. It was a wonderful occasion with 160 participants taking part in the eight different events.
This year, for the first time, all competitors were presented with a certificate to acknowledge their participation in a County Scór na nÓg Final. The winners were presented with their medals by two of the girls from the Leitrim All Ireland winning Ladies team, Amanda Sweeney and Anna Conlon. Interestingly both Anna and Amanda have not only taken part in Scór but both of them have reached All Ireland Scór Finals. Amanda Sweeney won an All Ireland in Figure Dance with Glencar/Manorhamilton in 1999 and Anna was part of the Dromahair Music Group which reached the All Ireland Final in 2007.
