Scór na nÓg fi­nals bring out the best!

Wicklow People (West Edition) - - SPORT - BREN­DAN LAWRENCE Sports Edi­tor

WICK­LOW’S Scór na nÓg took place re­cently with some won­der­ful per­for­mances on the day in St Kevin’s Hall in Bless­ing­ton.

Scór in all its forms has suf­fered badly from lack of num­bers in re­cent years but that didn’t stop a ded­i­cated and tal­ented crowd of comp­ti­tors from var­i­ous clubs in Wick­low from en­ter­ing the com­pe­ti­tion and im­press­ing the judges.

‘As we cel­e­brate the 50th an­niver­sary of Scór na­tion­ally, Wick­low has plenty to be proud of when it comes to our achieve­ments in the com­pe­ti­tion down through the years,’ said Wick­low’s Ir­ish and Cul­tural of­fi­cer Kathryn Noone.

‘From All-Ire­land suc­cess to those who par­tic­i­pate in a county fi­nal, great en­joy­ment and a sense of club and county pride is what we aim to pro­mote. Our de­ter­mi­na­tion to achieve this aim can be seen in the en­tries for our Scór County Fi­nals which in­clude a num­ber of new clubs each year.

‘This year the county fi­nal took place in St Kevin’s Hall and it was a great af­ter­noon with new and re­turn­ing acts tak­ing to the stage.

‘Hosted by Bless­ing­ton GAA Club and un­der the watch­ful eye of Cather­ine Be­han, Noreen Kee­gan Ka­vanagh, Fear an Ti Pat Mol­loy did a great job in mak­ing the day a fun and en­ter­tain­ing ex­pe­ri­ence. We are de­lighted to have a com­peti­tor in ev­ery sec­tion bar Set Danc­ing for the Le­in­ster semi-fi­nal. The win­ners who go on to rep­re­sent their clubs and Co.
