Scór Concert 

It is customary when one of our Scór groups reaches an All Ireland Scór Final to have a concert before the event. This year our Scór na nÓg Ballad group are in the All Ireland Finals on 16 February in Athlone. The Sean O’Heslins Ballad Group has made history for the club because in the 38 years of Scór we have never made an All Ireland Final in Ballad Group before in Scór na nÓg. We have been in All Ireland finals in Scór na nÓg in Rince Foirne, Rince Seit, Amhranaíocht, Aithriseoireacht, Trath na Gceist, Nuachleas and now, for the first time in Bailéad Ghrúpa. Many people have not yet seen this excellent Ballad Group and the opportunity will come when we hold a Scór Concert in the Commercial Hotel on Thursday 14 February. Start time will be 8.30. Other scor acts from Seán O’Heslins and neighbouring clubs will be on stage.

Top Ticket sellers.

When it comes to fundraising or selling tickets for the club, we have a number of excellent workers. Over the years we depend greatly on their support. On many occasions P J McLoughlin has been “King of the Sellers”. For our big draw at Christmas this year PJ was still to the fore but he had to concede the top position to a new “King of the Sellers”, Philip Farrelly. Philip’s name was in the “sellers” line for an amazing 226 tickets. Well done Philip but we are sure the top spot will be contested by PJ in the next round. The full list of sellers can be seen on our website.
