Limerick’s County Champions gave an exceptional display in yesterday’s Munster Scór na nÓg finals in Cashel.
Banogue Quiz team again acquitted themselves well yesterday. However the standard of answering was off the scale with eventual winners Clonakilty winning the Munster title by the narrowest of margins.
In the Rince Foirne competition Banogue stole the show and definitely had the cuteness factor dancing the 6 hand reel. The eventual winners from Tipperary are 5 in a row Munster winners and are the current reigning All Ireland Champions so Limerick were in great company.
Darragh Fitzgerald from Newcastle West gave an outstanding performance in the Recitation/Story telling competition with his take on Paddy Faley’s infamous “The Railway Line To Ardagh” Clare were crowned winners on the day.
Palasgreen were the Limerick representatives in the Ballad Group giving an excellent rendition of “Grace” and ” Far away in Australia” this young group had to give way to Kerry who are the current reigning Munster champions.
Palasgreen again carried Limerick’s hopes in the Instrumental Music competition. Experience seemed to win over youth with Cork taking the title in a competition where you could have made a case for any of the 6 to win.
The green and white was represented in the Set Dancing competition by Banogue with a fine lively version of the Sliabh gCua set. Eventual winners were Spa from Kerry , many times Munster and All Ireland champions.
As the members of the Scór Luimní committee waited side stage for the results – we were hoping and praying for Limerick winner. It has been 10 long years since Limerick has won anything at Munster level in Scór na nÓg and – it has been a long drought.
And the young lady to break that drought was Adelle O Sullivan from Athea in the Solo Singing competition. Singing Lough Sheelin Side , Adelle was last onstage to sing she gave only what can be described as an outstanding beautiful rendition of this song. This young lady now represents her club, county and province at the All Ireland final in the INEC on May 1st 2022.
THANK YOU to all our county representatives. You represented your club and county with distinction we hope you enjoyed the whole Scór experience and we will see you back for Scór na nÓg 2023.
