Leinster Scór na nÓg success
Ballygarret/Réalt na Mara Club won Leinster honours in the Instrumental Music competition in Scór na nÓg which took place in Ballymore, Co. Westmeath on Sunday last.
The standard of the competition was very high with groups from Laois, Offaly and Longford taking part. The Wexford group played a beautiful set dance followed by a lively reel. The standard of their performance ensured that they were awarded first place and will now represent Leinster in the All Ireland in Killarney on Saturday 30th January. Members of the group are Kate O’Loughlin and Áine Neary (fiddles), Ben O’Connor(banjo), Cian Kenny(concertina) and Seán Walsh(bouzouki & guitar). All in Wexford Scór wish them the very best of luck in the All Ireland final.
