SCÓR NA NÓG COUNTY FINAL – Well done to our 24 St. Mary’s participants who competed so brilliantly at the Leitrim Scór na nÓg County Final on Sunday. The hard work paid off because everyone that performed did so superbly.

We came away with four titles including The Figure Dancing consisting of Emma Morgan, Áine Morgan, Nicole Glancy, Grace Duignan, Rhianna Ward, Kaneisha Beirne, Sienna Beirne and Amelia Zawadzka. Recitation: Michael Connorton. Ballad Group: Ava Brogan, Roisin Noone, Elsie Harman, Eleanor Smith and Rionach Nic Conmara and finally The Instrumental Music Group consisting of Ava Brogan, Roisin Noone, Emer Kavanagh and Niamh Kavanagh.  Well done also to Kathy Butler who acted as Bean an Tí on the day, Kathy did an excellent job, putting the young contestants at ease and keeping the shown running to time. A big thank you to Laura and Claire Crossan also for all their hard work, time and dedication in ensuring that all participants are well rehearsed for Scór each year.

Michael and the three winning groups will go on to represent Leitrim at the Connacht Scór na nÓg Final in Claremorris on Sunday 14th January.
