THERE was excitement and jubilation in abundance amongst Offaly supporters in Ballymore, Westmeath on Sunday last, March 25 when the results of the Leinster Senior Scór Finals were announced.
Offaly scooped no less than four titles on the day and so the Faithful County will make up a very impressive 50% of Leinster’s representation in the All Ireland final in Killarney on April 21!
The successful acts were: Birr Figure Dancing: Emer Teehan, Sarah Teehan, Deverla Kirwan, Lynn Kirwan, Amy Ryan, Ashling Sammon, Fiona Ward and Nikita Murphy.
Clara Ballad Group: John Scanlon, Maura Evers, Ashling Connelly, Paul Scanlon, Colette Rabbitte.
Killeigh Instrumental Music: James Hogan, Lelia Brady, Eileen Brennan, Adrian Brady, Eithne Garry.
Ferbane Quiz Team: Christy Higgins, Liam Maher, Danny Mullery.
Congratulations to all concerned.
Well done also to Birr’s, Bernadette Spain, and Ballycumber’s Tony Coolihan, who both gave excellent performances in the solo singing and recitation categories respectively.
