All Ireland Scór Sinsir Preview.
Roscommon have excellent representation at this Saturday’s All Ireland Scór Sinsir Final in the TF Theatre, Castlebar. Having contested strongly in all 8 disciplines at Connacht level and winning the Cormac McGill Cup for the county with best participation and victories, the Rossies will look to complete a wonderful Scór campaign with national silverware.
Elphin are contesting 3 events this weekend, a rare distinction for any club. Early in the day they will vie for their place in the stage heat of the Tráth na gCeisteanna which is initially ran off as a table quiz amongst 12 qualifiers, 3 from each province. With a proven pedigree in this event, Ephin will hope to emulate the club’s very first All Ireland Scór title, won 50 years ago for Tráth na gCeisteanna in 1972. In contrast their Rince Foirne Team will hope that their performance of the Cross Reel will impress the adjudicators can earn Roscommon a first title in this event. Elphin will round off the day as they step it out in a competition they are synonymous with, the Rince Seit. Having won this prestigious title on two previous occasions, 1998 and 2001, Elphin will hope their prowess and tradition can get them over the line on Saturday.
St. Ronan’s have continued an excellent return to Scór activities in recent years by winning their second consecutive Connacht Scór Sinsir title. As their Ceol Uirlise Group take to the stage at this weekend, they will hope that perhaps this year they can bring national honours back to an area of the county steeped in musical tradition.
In the Novelty Act section, St. Dominic’s will be aiming to bring a first title back to the club in this discipline at Scór Sinsir. Having advanced through excellent competition both at county and provincial levels, the Knockcroghery group will aspire to recreate the delight their young actors brought the club upon winning the All Ireland Scór na nÓg title back in 2017.
Coiste Scór agus Cultúir, CLG Ros Comáin, extend their best wishes to all of the county’s representatives as they fly the flag for us in Castlebar. To have such strong Roscommon presence at the finals is a wonderful achievement in itself. Na Rosaithe Abú!
