Bhí féasta mór ceoil, drámaíochta, amhránaíochta agus damhsa ag an 1,600 a bhí láthair le breathnú ar Bhabhtaí Ceannais Scór na nÓg inniu Dé Sathairn, 1 Feabhra, san INEC, Cill Airne. The 1,600 crowd at the Scor na nÓg All-Ireland Finals were treated to a feast of song, drama, dance and music today in the INEC, Killarney. There was very little between the clubs in the Rince Foirne competiton but it was the CLG An Caisleán Nua club from Tipperary who were victorious and declared champions. In the Rince Seit competition the CLG Mainistir Chnoc Maigh club from Galway were declared champions.
CLG Naomh Adhamhnán from Donegal took the Aithriseoireacht/Scéalaíocht title and CLG An Baile from Longford came out on top in the Amhránaíocht Aonair competition. In the Bailéad-Ghrúpa competition Westmeath Champions, Móta Uile-Bána, did their club and county proud by lifting the cup. The three clubs from Ulster, CLG Naomh Columba, Dún na nGall, CLG Chill Shléibhe, Ard Mhacha agus CLG Chorr na Féinne, An Cabhán managed to make the stage round of the quiz but it was the Cavan champions that came out on top in the end. All in the crowd agreed that it was fantastic to see the final parts of the quiz on stage and Máistir na gCeisteanna, Éamonn Ó Braonáin conducted the quiz fantastically.
The newly renamed ‘Nuachleas’ competition was a huge success but after a great entertainment from all clubs it was the Gaeil Leitir Ceanainn from Donegal who were declared All-Ireland Champions for 2020. The ‘Ceol Uirlise’ competition gave a platform for some of the greatest young musicians in the country to entertain the crowd and in a tight competition it was CLG Fionnúig from Munster who came out on top.
A hugely deserving comhghairdeas is due to Fear agus Bean an Tí Conor Ó Gallachóir and Muireann Ní Bhocháin for their great presentations during the day and there is no doubt that both have great careers ahead in whatever fields of work life takes them. Rinne Uachtarán Chumann Luthchleas Gael, Seán Ó hÓráin, comhghairdeas le gach duine a ghlac páirt agus labhair sé faoi thábhacht Scór i gCumann Lúthchleas Gael. Dúirt se freisin go raibh sárlá siamsaíochta ann. Is iad seo a leanas seaimpíní na hÉireann ag Scór na nÓg, 2020.
