Bhí buanna iontacha Ghaeil Leitir Ceanainn le feiceáil thuas ar an ardán Dé hAoine seo caite ag comórtas Scór Sinsir. The County semi-final was hosted by Club Naomh Pádraig in Muff. Méabh Ní Chathail won the solo ballad competition and the ballad group - Bernie Frain, Katrina Patton, Deirdre Ní Dhochartaigh, Geraldine Hanley and Méabh Ní Chathail also won their section with two beautiful songs. These will now go through to the Donegal County Final this coming Friday 29th January at 7.30 in Glenswilly. The music group consisting of Deirdre Ní Dhochartaigh, Marian Kerr and Deirdre Diver were highly praised by the judges. The Quiz team of Paul Melaugh, John Hughes, Tom Murray and Danny Cahill performed very well although there were a few heated debates about some of the answers! Tá Scór ag dul ó neart go neart i gClub s'againne agus tá feabhas agus forbairt ar intinn againn don bhliain seo chugainn. Please come along on Friday night and support your club members at the County Final. Ádh mór dóibh siúd uilig a bheas ag glacadh páirt.
