The County Finals took place last Saturday, March 11th in the Mayflower, Drumshanbo. Navan O Mahonys Kathy Butler did an excellent job hosting the Senior table quiz final & Bean an Tí for the evenings entertainment.
The Leitrim county finalists took to the stage to present their best-polished performance to the judges from Cavan & Westmeath. Well done to all 10 clubs who took part. It was a lovely evening of music, song & dance. It was great to see some familiar faces returning to Scór Liatroma aris. Maith sibh go Leir. The quiz was held in the full table quiz format prior to the stage competition. Bornacoola emerged the winners after the 10 rounds were complete. They now represent Leitrim at the 32 county All-Ireland final. It will be held on May 6th in the Waterfront in Belfast alongside the Stage competition.
Medals were presented to the winners by Chairperson of Leitrim County Board Chairman Terence O Boyle. Eilis McGourty from Glenfarne accepted the Cormac MacGiolla Shield for Club na Bliana on behalf of Assumpta Clancy (cultural officer Glenfarne). It was proudly presented to Eilis by Ailbhe McGill, Bornacoola .

Scór na mBunscoileanna
Scór na mBunscoileanna dates are set for Friday 31st March in Cloone Community Centre & Saturday April 1st in the Mayflower Drumshanbo.
Both nights starting at 6pm. Reminder to schools to submit entries by march 20th, indicating which night your school is taking part.
For clubs, It would be encouraged that Schools Scór be promoted by the county clubs for participation as this is where the talent and love of the music song & dance is nurtured. It is a fantastic outlet & will help identify new people in your community that may not necessarily be involved in field games but may like to join the club and get involved in the area.
