Winners announced at county final of Scór na nÓg
Sunday evening proved to be a great night of entertainment at the county final of Scór na nÓg, which was held in St Catherine’s College, Armagh. The competition got underway with céilí dancing with the four teams of Whitecross, Mullaghbane, Killeavy and Silverbridge putting in good performances and setting the tone and the high standard for the night. The solo singing competition was another all south Armagh affair with singers from Mullaghbane, Crossmaglen, Silverbridge and Carrickcruppen performing in English and in Irish. The instrumental music competition proved to be great entertainment with teams from Ballymacnab, Whitecross, Silverbridge and Mullaghbane keeping the audience’s feet tapping. In the recitation competition, the first representative from north Armagh Éire Óg performed along with some younger members from Mullaghbane, Silverbridge and Ballymacnab.
The ballad groups from Silverbridge, Ballyhegan, Crossmaglen and Cullyhanna performed a beautiful array of traditional and more modern ballads. The two novelty acts from Cullyhanna and Crossmaglen had the audience in stitches and the quiz teams of Silverbridge, Ballymacnab, Éire Óg and Dromintee wrapped up the night by answering questions on the GAA, Irish history and general knowledge. The adjudicators certainly had a difficult task and the winners were presented their awards by county chairman, Paul Dougan. The club of the year award for participation in Scór na nÓg 2011 was Silverbridge, much to the delight of the large Silverbridge support, and the club awarded the most improved club for participation went to St Brenda’s camogie club, Ballymacnab. The winner of the céilí dancing competition was Whitecross, solo singing was Mullaghbane, instrumental was Mullaghbane, recitation was Éire Óg, ballad group was Silverbridge, novelty act was Cullyhanna and quiz was Silverbridge.
