Our wonderful Scór na nÓg Ballad Group continued their great run by taking the Dublin Final with a win over Na Fianna, St Pats and a much-fancied Fingalians, who competed in no fewer than 5 of the 8 disciplines in the County Finals and took Corn na Bliana by some distance. Robert Aherne, Fionn Doherty, Enda Larkin and Andy O’Connor were delighted to receive their trophy and medals from Gráinne Quinn, star of Dublin Camogie.
No strangers to the belt of a Hurl, these lads might just be seen taking a closer interest in Camogie in future !
Go raibh míle maith agat a Ghráinne agus go n-éirí go geal leat le foireann Bhaile Átha Cliath amach anseo.
As Fionn has headed off to the Antipode for a Transition Year work experience to beat them all we had to conduct trials for a fear-ionad to join our group for the next round of Scór na nÓg which is the Leinster semi-finals in Clonaslee, Co Laois, on 15th December 2012 – this Saturday !
I’m delighted to report that Ben Broderick stood tall when his moment came and has slotted in perfectly. Not only has Ben got a great singing voice but his record on the Football and Hurling pitches makes him a natural fit with his new team mates, with whom he will surely play at Minor and beyond.
Raidio na Life were so taken with our group that they brought them in for a chat and to hear them sing – live on air. Ben could have been excused this assignment as he had only 1 hour’s practice with the lads behind him but he wouldn’t hear of it and took his place in the line-up as if he had always been there.
If you’d like to hear how they got on and practice do chuid Gaeilge, mar is Gaeilgeoirí líofa iad go léir, click on the link and be amazed.
Support Ballinteer St Johns in Scór na nÓg as Rob, Ben, Enda and Andy take on the might of Laois, Longford, Meath, Louth and Offaly in Cluain na Slí, Contae Laoise, ag an deireadh seachtaine seo chugainn.
