The Senior Scór County Final took place last Saturday, February 9th in St Marys Hall, Carrick on Shannon. Declan Bohan PRO of Leitrim County board hosted as Fear an Tí for the evening’s stage competition Though disheartening not to have an entry for all 7, It was strong and very entertaining competition. Leitrim has a tradition at all Ireland level from past years and it was disappointing to see no club entry for Leiriu once again. Something for the county to work towards going forward, given the legacy of past all Irelands won in this competition. However, it was fantastic to have some familiar faces returning to Scór Liatroma aris. Maith sibh go Leir.
Leitrim County Medals were presented to the winners by Leitrim County Board Chairperson Terance Boyle. The Cormac MacGiolla Shield for Club na Bliana was chosen by the panel of judges from Westmeath. Cultural Officer Sheila McNulty from Aughnasheelin accepted the award which was presented by Ailbhe McGill, Bornacoola.
