Two wins for Leitrim at Connacht Scór
Leitrim qualified for the All Ireland Scór Finals in two events at the Connacht Scór Finals in Elphin on Sunday. In Rince Foirne Glencar/ManorhamiltonÓgave a great performance and it was no surprise when they were declared winners
In Nuachleas, Ballinamore Seán O Heslins were the winners. Again they were clear cut winners and they will be back in yet another final They got that far last year as well.
There was a historic first when Diarmuid Rock represented London in Recitation. London were invited to compete this year and they took part in this event only. What made it even more unique was that just immediately before Diarmuid, his father Mick Rock took part in the same competition representing Elphin and Roscommon
Connacht Council has put up a trophy for the County with the best participation and performance each year and the trophy has been named after Cormac MacGiolla who worked so hard for Scór in Leitrim and nationally. Appropriately enough the award went to Leitrim this year and was presented to Scór Cathaoirleach, Seán Ó Suilleabháin by Cathaoirleach of Coiste Scór Chonnacht, Frank Burke.
