Scór Sinsir 2024

Scór Sinsir Mhuineacháin 2024

Friday night in Emyvale, saw a large crowd gather for the final of Scór Sinsir 2024. Recent
promotion of Scór at county level, contributed greatly to the large number of entries this year,
from across the county, and thus providing a great night’s entertainment for the vast
Seventeen teams took part in the Tráth na gCeist in Cremartin last Thursday, in table quiz
format, to begin with. The top three teams, namely Latton, Scotstown and Clontibret, battled
it out in the individual rounds, with Latton emerging as eventual winners.
The stage events kicked off on Friday night, with the hotly contested Solo Singing
competition, of six solo singers. Aghabog’s Katie Boyle retained her title with her rendition of
“The Ballad of Mary Spain”.
The Ballad Group and Traditional Music contests saw four different clubs compete, in two
very commendable competitions, which saw the Latton O’Rahilly Club gain another two
county titles.
In Recitation, Scotstown’s Paddy Sherlock added another county title to his tally, after taking
the honours, with his own penned poem, “Minnows winning Sam”. Paddy saw off stiff
competition here from Truagh’s Eoghan Flood and Monaghan Harps’ Danny Tracey.
Truagh emerged victorious in the Novelty Act section with “Kavanagh Country” in what was
a most highly entertaining and very close competition, giving the audience a belly full of
laughs along the way.
A massive well done to Latton on competing in the most disciplines and winning the most
titles, and they were deservedly awarded the Deirdre Rooney Cup.
Many thanks to host clubs Cremartin and Emyvale for all their hard work, in preparing the
venues, and for providing top class hospitality; no stone was left unturned. A huge thank you
to all clubs who took part in Scór Sinsir this year, in what was a superb night’s entertainment,
with the highest standard of cultural talent on display.
