Ballinteer St Johns had a great day at the Leinster semi-final of Scór na nÓg held in Leixlip GAA Club on Sunday when two of our three entries won through to the Leinster final to be held in Ballymore this Sunday, 16th January 2011.
Gráinne Ní Lorcáin goes forward in the Amhránaíocht Aonair competition. Our Set Dancers, directed by Philip Denmead, Rachael Bennett, Caoilin McGivney, Orla Ni Fhaoláin, Caoimhe Ni Fhaoláin, Meadhbh O’Rourke, Gráinne O’Rourke, Aoife Ni Ruairc and Emily Naughton will also represent Dublin proudly in the next phase of the competition. Fionn Morrison and Philip Denmead Jnr provided live music in support of the dancers and this added a marvellous atmosphere to the performance. Our Tráth na gCeist team faced stiff opposition and lost out to Kildare who passed on only 3 questions out of the 18.
Wish them well as they compete to win a place in the All Ireland finals to be held in Castlebar.
