Roscommon GAA Scór Sinsir Final 2024

April 6th, 2024

Kilmurry Hall hosted a wonderful display of local GAA talent on Good Friday, 29th March, as clubs from all over the county contested the Roscommon Scór Sinsir Final. 

The first category for decision was the ever-popular Tráth na gCeisteanna. At the initial table quiz round teams from St. Michaels, Kilmore, St. Dominic’s, Elphin, Tulsk, Creggs, Kilglass Gaels, Clann na Gael and Pádraig Pearses, took part. Tulsk, Elphin and Clann progressed to the stage final round and after a battle, a formidable Elphin regained the title they last won in 2022.

The Amhránaíocht Aonair was a hotly contested affair with singers battling it out to be crowned county champion.  Peadar McCaffrey (Elphin), Fionnán Seale (Padraig Pearses), Philippa Barry (Clann na nGael), Geraldine Sheeran (Pádraig Pearses) Karl Foley (Kilmore), Eimear Browne (Shannon Gaels) all gave strong performances, but it was Niamh Reynolds who won the title for St. Michael’s with her beautiful rendition of ‘Sweet Lislea’.

The Recitation/Storytelling saw Tom Costello entertain the crowd with his delivery of ‘The Wake’, taking a richly deserved first senior title in many years at this level for Pádraig Pearses. In doing so, he beat off excellent opposition from Vincent Pierse and Patrick Mullooly (St. Dominic’s) and Sarah Seery from Clann na nGael.

The Ballad Group event proved a rousing and well contested competition. Groups from St. Dominc’s, Kilmore and Pádraig Pearses gave rousing renditions of their songs, but it was a talented young group from St. Michael’s, who won the hearts of the judges, regaining the title they won in 2022.

In the Novelty Act discipline, Elphin and Padraig Pearses, gave fantastic entertainment with two hilarious sketches. In a close contest, Elphin took county honours with their hilarious performance.

Undoubtedly the competition of the night, the Ceol Uirlise was a fantastic showcase for traditional music in Roscommon. Six groups from Padraig Pearses, Clann na Gael, Kilmore, Shannon Gaels, Elphin and St. Ronan’s, battled it out for their place in the Connacht final. The title went to an exceptionally polished St. Ronan’s team who last advanced to All Ireland level in 2022.

Sole entrants in the Rince Seit, Elphin rose the energy levels with a spirited display to finish off one of the best county finals in Roscommon Scór in many years.
