Local Scór Sinsir hopefuls set for All-Ireland finals

Five teams from three Roscommon clubs will head to the Dome at the Connacht Centre of Excellence in Bekan, Ballyhaunis this Saturday (20th) for the deferred 2020 All-Ireland Senior Scór Championship Finals.

Given its name by Roscommon man, Phonsie Tully of St. Aidan’s GAA at Congress in 1970, Scór has continued to serve clubs and has flourished as a focal point of inclusion, pride and fun.

Roscommon clubs have the distinction of representing Connacht in five of the eight events this weekend.

  St. Dominic’s will compete for honours in the Ballad Group and Novelty Act competitions, Elphin will take part in the Tráth na gCeist and Rince Seit finals while St. Ronan’s make a first appearance in the All-Ireland finals in the Ceol Uirlise.

Speaking at the official send-off for the club’s Novelty Act and Ballad Groups at St. John’s Community Centre in Lecarrow last Sunday, St. Dominic’s Chairperson Sylvia Kilcline said: “We’ll give it our best shot in what will be keenly contested finals. We’ve given both teams (Ballad and Novelty Act) a really good send-off this evening and we look forward to seeing them in the Dome next Saturday.

“Roscommon is represented in five of the eight events as reigning Connacht champions and we wish all our representatives including Elphin and St. Ronan’s the very best of luck this weekend”.

Competitions begin at 3 pm this Saturday and tickets are available through the official Scór Facebook page. You can follow all the action on TG4’s YouTube channel.
