Club Notes JournalistOmagh

Scór Success – In what is shaping up to be one of the most successful seasons for Scór in the club, last weekend will be remembered for a long time with the Scór Sinsear teams claiming a remarkable five of the eight titles at the Tyrone finals in Killeeshil on Sunday afternoon. There were wins for our Ceili and Set Dancing teams, Instrumental Music team, Ballad group and Léiríu (formely Novelty) with a total of 32 Tyrone medals being awarded to all our contestants. Congratulations to everyone and also our other three groups who were placed second in their category. Full details on our website. Our thoughts also go out to Michelle Mullin who had to pull out of the finals due to the death of her father on Friday. The club extends sympathy to Michelle and her family.

All-Ireland – On Saturday our Scór na nÓg Ballad group gave a fantastic performance at the All-ireland final in Castlebar but sadly they were narrowly pipped at the post in a very tough competition which was won by Ferbane of Offaly. There was a great reception for the young group in the clubrooms on Sunday evening where there were joined by our senior Scór teams for an evening of celebration. See photo gallery for homecoming photos.
