Scor Sinsear Final this weekend in Dun Uladh

By tyronepro Wed 3rd Feb

The Scór season in Tír Eoghain is quickly coming to a conclusion for the current year.
Scór na nÓg ended in a thrilling and most satisfactory conclusion, for Tír Eoghain and Ulster clubs, in INEC in Killarney on Saturday 30th January. Of the eight finals on offer Ulster counties and clubs brought home four of the national titles. Rince Foirne and Léiriú went to Armagh clubs while Amhránaíocht Aonair crossed over into Down. The Bailéad Ghrúpa competition was won by an excellent Donaghmore club. We knew this group had great talent and they certainly showed it on Saturday night. Also appearing in Killarney was the Aithriseoireacht of Moy’s Seán Ó Loingsigh. Those from Tír Eoghain who attended the finals at the weekend were very impressed with Seán’s performance and indeed, up to the last minute, firmly believed he had done enough to claim a further very coveted All Ireland title. But unfortunately it was not to be but it is suffice to say he did his family, community, club and county proud in his efforts. Well done Sean. In the Tráth na gCeist section Trí Leac put up yet another sterling performance and achieved a very creditable fourth place in a competition with twenty seven other counties. The top four counties were separated by only four marks – such was the level of competition.
In general terms there was a strong Tír Eoghain contingent in the audience of the INEC and they made themselves heard in support of all Tír Eoghain contestants. This is one area in which the GAA people of Tír Eoghain have always excelled. They will support their clubs and county on the national stage with a true level of community support. Many thanks to all those who made the long trip to Killarney last weekend – your support was greatly appreciated by all
Now we turn to the adults to show us what they can do. The Scór Sinsear County Final takes place this Sunday, 7th February 2016 at 6.00 pm in the Dún Uladh Centre at Killyclogher. The adult Scór programme has been compressed into a much shorter time scale that ever before but thankfully it will return to the usual format for the 2017 season. There will, nevertheless, be a wealth of talent on show at the finals. We will have the usual quota of the ‘always there clubs’, the ‘every now and then clubs’ and, a very welcome group of newer clubs.
Following the finals on Sunday the Ulster Semi finals will follow very quickly with Tír Eoghain clubs performing again in their semi final at Glenullin, Co Derry on Saturday night, 13th February. The Ulster Final follows on, one week later, 20th February, in St Patrick’s Grammar School Downpatrick. All in all, this will be a very hectic time for the successful Tyrone clubs.
The All Ireland Finals will take place in the INEC in Killarney on Saturday 2nd April.
On a more positive note, both Scór na nÓg and Scór Sinsear, All Ireland Finals in 2017 will take place in the Waterfront Hall, Belfast. No big long journey for the clubs and supporters.
This weekend is now the target for cultural activities beginning on Sunday, 7th February at 6.00 pm in Dún Uladh.
