Bhí oíche den scoth ag Gaeil Leitir Ceanainn areir. Gaels were well represented in the County semi-final of Scór. Méabh Ní Chathail sang a wonderful solo ballad and just missed out on a place in the County Final despite coming out with a score of 95/100. That just shows the standard of the competition. Michael O'Connor gave a hugely entertaining rendition of The Tae Man in the storytelling competition. Katrina Patton, Niamh Hanley, Clíona Conaghan, Méabh Ní Chathail and Bairbre Uí Chathail won the ballad group section with two great songs and fabulous, tight harmonies (with huge thanks to Brighdín Carr). The quiz team on the night included Paul Melaugh, Michael O'Connor, Garry Coll and Bairbre Uí Chathail. It may not have been their finest outing!! Brian Sweeney's entertaining play The AGM was brilliantly performed by the Gaels drama squad of Bernie Frain, Noel Sweeney, Garry Coll, Brighdín Carr, Sheila Sweeney, Celine Sweeney and Brian Sweeney. The play received a great response from the audience and you have an opportunity to see it and hear the ballad group in the Scór County Final next Saturday 25th February starting at 7.30 in the clubhouse at Glenswilly. Thig le Gaeil Leitir Ceanainn bheith fíor bhrodúil as an dream a bhí ar an ardan areir. Na Gaeil abú!
