Sixteen clubs took part in the two nights of Scór na nÓg last Saturday and Sunday. There were big numbers on stage on both nights particularly the second night in Carrick on Shannon.. Aughavas took part this year while Ballinaglera and Annaduff took part last year but not this year, so there was one club less but, overall, the number of items on stage was up slightly on last year. The entertainment was wonderful and a credit to the club mentors who coached the youngsters.
Some years ago the big numbers were in the relatively easy to organise events like Trath na gCeist, Amhranaíocht Aonair, Aithriseoireacht and less numbers in the dancing and group events. It is gratifying to see that the event with the biggest numbers this year was Rince Foirne with 18 groups taking part. Events such as this take a lot of time so it is great to see this level of involvement.
