WEST Cork clubs savoured the fruits of a rewarding outing at the county Scór na nÓg finals on a terrific staging in the Éire Óg GAA Pavillion, Ovens.
Teenage talent from across underage, camogie and ladies’ football clubs pursued outright honours in the diverse cultural orientated programme.
An appreciative attendance enjoyed the spectacle with Boherbue from sampling four outright wins, Avondhu cheers rose for Kilshannig with Sam Maguires, St James and Carbery Rangers unleashing a
powerful Carbery surge to the delight of West Cork supporters.
St James took custody of the honours in the Ballad Group, the Ardfield quintet put together excellent harmonies with their double offering of ‘My Belfast Love’ and ‘Cill Mhuire’ good enough to better second-placed Cullen.
Carbery Rangers added a popular win in the novelty act with a topical presentation titled ‘Dublin: its places, its people and its five in a row’. And from the demanding recitation class, Shannon Buttimer from Sam Maguires collected the accolades with a hilarious offering titled ‘The Pig’, and second here was Finín Ó
Conaill representing Cill na Martra.
