Donegal had tremendous success over the weekend at the Ulster finals of Scór na nÓg in Threemilehouse, Co. Monaghan:

 

  • Naomh Columba won the Tráth na gCeist with a final score of 82;
  • Síofra Harvey of CLG Naomh Adhamhnáin won the Recitation/Storytelling with her piece (Bandraoi Loch an Dúin) which was entirely as Gaeilge; and,
  • Gaeil Leitir Ceanainn won the Novelty Act with their act which was named Packie McNamee.

 

The ballad group from Naomh Adhamhnáin and the céilí dancers from Iorras also gave great performances and represented the county well but unfortunately lost out on the day.

 

 

This was one of Donegal’s most successful days in Scór with representation in five of the eight categories and winning three of them. The winners in the eight categories were as follows. Dún na nGall – 3, Doire – 2, Aontroim – 1, An Cabhán – 1 and Tír Eoghain – 1

 

Naomh Columba, Naomh Adhamhnáin and Gaeil Leitir Ceanainn will now represent their clubs, Donegal and Ulster in the All Ireland finals of Scór na nÓg in Killarney on the 1st February.
