They will now go forward to the All-Ireland finals, which are being held in Castlebar in March. Club Scor Officer, Sinead McLaughlin was delighted with the result. “The acting on the night was excellent throughout, with great music, song and dance. The judges said ‘it was entertaining from start to finish’ and I totally agree with their judgement. The kids and Patricia put in a great deal of work preparing for this competition and I’m so proud of them.”The play was written and directed by Patricia Doherty Tinney and the judges commended her on a truly original and quality presentation. Mention was also given in the adjudication to the tin whistle playing of Noeleen Doherty which helped portray the dramatic effect in the story.This is a great achievement for Buncrana GAA as the club is relatively new to participating in Scór Na nÓg. The club and the team are looking forward now to the national final and hope to take an All-Ireland of a different kind back home to Donegal!The winning team are pictured here with Ulster GAA president, Martin McAviney.
