The County Finals of Scór na nÓg took place last Sunday in the Community Centre in Ballinamore. Fourteen clubs were on stage as almost 160 participants provided the best in Irish cultural activity, music, song and dance.
It was great to see such a packed hall and with the cream of the crop of leitrims finest entertainment provided for the audience. The adjudicators had a difficult job to do to settle on winners, as the standard was very high in all events. All of the winners received Scór medals presented by James Glancy of the Glencar-Manorhamilton Club and Leitrim County Player. Also, all participants received a Scór na nÓg Certificate indicating that they had participated in the County Finals.
A special mention must be given to the Fenagh Set Dancers who scooped the Leitrim Title for their 10th year running, a fine achievement by the Club.
Thank you to Fear a Tí for the night, Karl McCartin from Drumreilly who did an excellent job and helped to keep the event running smoothly for the afternoon. Overall, Scór na nÓg in Leitrim is a credit to the Clubs and Coiste Scór Liatroma for the effort they put into the event. The Cormac MacGiolla Shield for Club na Bliana was won by the Aughnasheelan club and was presented to Brendan Sammon.
