Scór na mBunscoileanna

The 2 nights of Scór na mBunscoileanna took place in Cloone Community Hall Friday 31st of March the Mayflower Drumshanbo on Saturday April 1st. Fourteen schools took part over both nights. The standards of performances were an absolute credit to the schools, parents and teachers, the children really promoted the culture and talent of the schools. Some very strong and youthful contenders to possibly go forward to Scór na nÓg next Autumn. Question Time was a tough competition with teams with top marks right to the end on both nights.

Many thanks and credit to our Mná an Ti, Friday night was compered by Carrigallens, Grainne Ni Mhaille and Friday was hosted by St Marys Laura Crossan.

The best performance on each night in each event got medals in first and second place. Very strong performances and big numbers in Solo Singing & Recitation on Friday night, to which the judges also gave highly, commended medals.

The Cormac Mac Giolla shield for the best school overall was won by Scoil Muire National School, Carrick-on-Shannon.
