A weekend of mixed fortunes for the club in Scór last week end! On Friday night we enjoyed great success in the North 'B' Final of Scór na bPaisti held in Borrisoleigh. We had success in the Quiz (Aaron Pearson, Clara Collins, Aidan Ryan, and Eimear Shanahan), Léiriú (Mollie O'Hora, Clara Collins, Kevin O'Brien, Damien O'Brien, Aaron Pearson, Shauna Pearson, Aoibheann Collins & Aisling O'Gormon), Instrumental Music (Michael Hewitt, Keith Hogan, Caragh Flynn, Emma Clifford & Sarah Fitzpatrick) and Recitation (Mollie O’Hora). We also had great performances from Leah Hogan in the Solo Singing and from Eryn Kennedy, Aoife Kennedy, Sadbh Lenihan, Aisling O'Sullivan and Abbie Lenihan in the Ballad Group.  We were awarded the overall Club of the Year at Scór na bPáisti level. Well done to all concerned and best of luck to our representatives in the County Final of Scór na bPaisti in Cashel on Sunday next. They are as follows - Tráth na gCeist (John Ryan, Conor Shanahan, Diarmuid O'Riordan and Kevin O'Brien) and Rince Seit (Sarah Floyd, Claire Coffey, Orla Coffey, Emma Clifford, Ava O'Malley, Alanah Murphy, Ailish Byrne & Sinead McGlinchey).

Unfortunately we didn’t taste success in the Munster Final of the Scór Sinsear in Ovens, Cork on Saturday last despite excellent performances by Lil O’Grady in the Recitation and by Teresa Galvin, Marie Floyd, Lorna Floyd, Brian McAuliffe and Ruairi Floyd in the Ballad Group.
