Leitrim County Scór Final was held last Saturday in The Mayflower Drumshanbo. A dissapointing level of entries in comparison to past years, with many categories only having one entry. Recitiation with the higest entries with 5 participants.  Entries did provide a fine evenings entertainment nonetheless. 

Congratulations to all of the clubs that took part and help keep the tradition alive. As Sean O Suilleabhain pointed out to the audience, Tyrone has the highest number of All-Irelands won at Scór and Leitrim is in second place, a fine achievement for a small county.

The Leitrim representatives will take to  the stage in the Connacht Finals in Tubbercurry on Saturday 28th March.

The All-Ireland Scór na nÓg Finals took place last Saturday 14th February in Citywest Dublin. Leitrim Gaels Ballad group gave a fabulous performance and sang their hearts out but lost out to The Downs club from Westmeath.
In Question Time, Liatroim was represented earlier in the day by Bornacoola. Tough questions put to the teams this year and was eventually won by Kerry. With the new procedures for the quiz since 2014, it is now a table quiz style competition with all 32 counties taking part and a nice twist, the top 3 teams recieve a medal.
The one and only medal to go to Connacht went to Aughamore of Mayo for Set Dancing, a first for the club in 25 years.
Irish TV were also in citywest to record the days proceedings. Two special documentaries from All-Ireland GAA Scór na nÓg and Scór Sinsir Finals will be broadcast later this year bringing our cultural highlights to a global audience. Further details of the broadcasting to follow.

One Connacht title for Leitrim in this years Connacht Scór na nÓg Finals last Saturday in Claremorris. Leitrim Gaels took home the only title in the Ballad Group

The first Leitrim performance to take to the stage was represented by the fine young ladies of St Marys in the Figure dance. the girls gave a fabulous performance  but the 8 ladies from St Dominics in Roscommon danced through to the All-Irelands once again.

In Solo Singing Aoife McLoughlin of Kilbride Roscommon won the Connacht title seeing off Leitrims Kathy Mc Loughlin of Leitrim Gaels.

Easkey won the only title of the evening for Sligo in Instrumental Music , winning over our Leitrim Gaels team who received great rapture from the audience but unfortunately not the judges choice and Easkey retained their title for a second year.

Recitation was a very entertaining competition and Patrick Mullooly of St Dominics Rosommon was declared the winner. Credit to Aughnasheelans Sarah Mc Weeney and the self penned tale of modern day Scór , it drew lots of positive attention and received commendation from outgoing chair Mick Rock of Roscommon in his closing speech.

Leiriu winner was St Dominics of Roscommon, Set Dance went once again to Aughamore of Mayo. Leitrim has no entries in either of these competitions much to the shock of other Connaught counties as we would be deemed strong on both of these. One to revive for next year and not let the talent pass us by unnoticed.

Leitrims standard of participation was as high as ever this year and no doubt Leitrim Juniors will be back with a bang again in 2015.


The All-Ireland Finals will be held in Citywest Hotel & Conference Centre on February 14th at 3pm. Please note it is a ticket only event, tickets are priced at €20 and are non-refundable. they can be ordered through your club officer or Maura Mulvey at 087-6486967, all orders must be placed by Monday –January 27th

Wishing Leitrim Gaels and all of the Connacht winners the best of luck.
