Scór Sinsear: Pride of place this week goes to Shane Hagan who won the Solo Singing competition at the Senior Scór county final on Friday night last in Ardagh. It has been a few years since the club has won a county title in Scór so it was great to see Shane deservedly come home victorious. Hard luck to our instrumental musicians (Shane Hagan, Rúairí Carthy and Cathal Culliney) who gave an exceptional performance and were very unlucky not to win. We would like to thank the lads for competing and also our Scór Co-ordinator Lorraine Corrigan who organised our competitors. Thanks also to Betty Creegan who was there on the night to help the lads. Best of luck to Shane as he prepares for the Leinster Semi Final in The Downs, Co. Westmeath on Sunday, March 4th.
