Unfortunately Siobhán didn't get the nod from the
adjudicators, losing out to The Downs entrant who also won last year's County
Final. We can be confident, however, that Siobhán will bring glory to our club
in the coming years. Watch this space.
Ballycomoyle, under the guiding hand of Doreen
Farrelly, took part in the County Senior Scór on Friday February 10th in The
Down's clubhouse. The Club was represented in Three categories.
Quiz: Seamus McDermott, Niall McKenna and Seamus Coyle.
Despite galant efforts from Gráinne and our quiz team
neither made the cut for the next round. Siobhán Murphy on the other hand did
get the nod from the judges after singing beautifully in a very strong field.
She will be representing the club in the County Finals back in The Downs on
Saturday 25th of February at 7pm.
Scór na nÓg 2006
(Club and County Finals held at the end of 2005)
Ballycomoyle hosted Scór na nÓg first round in
Collinstown Hall on Saturday November
12th at 8pm after a
long absence from this competition. Great credit must go to Doreen
Farrelly, who having invested a lot of time and hard work in this project saw it
come to fruition on the night. Doreen
who is no stranger to Scór, having competed both at Junior and Senior levels
for no less than three separate clubs, recruited teams and individuals in
the following categories.
Recitation: Karen Coyle & Saoirse
Solo Singing: Samantha Smyth & Jane Coyle
John Corrigan, Jamie Ward & Steven
Sinéad Lynch, Cían Farrelly & Sinéad McNicholas
Hilary Gaffney, Alma Gunning & Cían Farrelly (the
instrumentalists are being coached by Siobhán Masterson).
All our competitors gave of their best on the night and
deserve great praise for their effort and bravery in getting on stage in front
of a capacity crowd. Jane Coyle, accompanied by Catherine Daly, qualified to go
forward to the county semi-final in The Downs clubhouse on Sunday November 20th
at 5pm in the solo-singing category. Dermot McKenna was at his usual best on the mike for the night and kept
a great night's entertainment moving along swiftly. This was the first of what
will hopefully be many nights of scór for the club.
Unfortunately, despite giving a brilliant performance on the evening of 20th
November in the Downs, Jane Coyle did not make the cut for the County final. Her
performance and that of all the Ballycomoyle competitors and organisers does
however augur well for the future. Jane at only 11 years old still has many
years of Scór na nÓg left.
