The cream of Munster talent took to the stage in Eire Og GAA Pavilion last Sunday in Cork to contest this year’s Munster Scór na nÓg finals.
Through to the All-Ireland Finals on Saturday, February 1 in the INEC Killarney are;
Question Time: Spa East Kerry Board, Emer O’Keeffe, Ian Coffey, Sean Hickey, Donal Hickey. Ballad group Glenflesk, East Kerry Board, Eabha Ni Ealaithe, Sinead Ni Ghliosain, Caitlin Ni Chroinin, Sorcha Ni Mhorain, Mallaidh Ni Dhonnchu, and Instrumental Music; Finuge, North Kerry Football Board, Kieran MacKessy, Mikey Fealy, Caoimhe Laide, Daibhin Laide.
Fear A Ti for the day was Fionnan MacGearailt from Ballymacelligott and the Kerryman not for the first time did an excellent job keeping the huge programme of events running smoothly, PRO Jack Hennessy said.
“However, we must spare a thought for our remaining participants who were all excellent and cannot be faulted having given superb performances, but failed to get the adjudicators nod. The Dromid Figure Dancers on their first appearance at this stage of competition are certainly up and coming and will have their glory day before long, as will Fintan O’Sullivan in the Recitation category representing Reenard.
Liam Randals from the Dr Crokes Club sang superbly, he added.
“Another club new to this stage of the competition were Reenard in the Novelty Act and they brought down the house with their performance of ‘HSE’. Finally we come to what has been one of the most successful clubs, not alone in the county but further afield, the Spa Set Dancers; last year’s All-Ireland finalists representing the East Kerry Board discipline, but unfortunately despite great performances lost out and they could have not been too far from entering the winner’s enclosure.”
