CLASS acts from Carbery surfaced at the county Scór na bPaistí finals in the presence of a bumper audience in the Éire Óg GAA Pavilion, Ovens.
The hosting shone a light on the enthusiasm from participating teams towards a cultural programme promoted by the GAA. On doing so, the standard on parade bore testimony to the many hours of practice.
Outright honours were enjoyed by clubs and schools from five divisions. Castlehaven came to prominence in the Leiriú, their production titled ‘The Big Inspection’ sweeping the honours from Ovens, Belgooly and Dungourney.
Castlehaven team members included Daniel McCarthy, Ailish Buckley, Ellie McCarthy, Éabha McCaffrey, Grace O’Connell, Ellen Buckley, Eamonn O’Donovan and Hugh Buckley
Meanwhile Muiris Buttimer from Sam Maguires maintained a brilliant family tradition to secure the accolades in the recitation class with a composition titled ‘The Birthday spent in Glandore’.
Elsewhere, Diarmuid Ó Mathúnas Music Group collected runner-up position. There was success too for Cill na Martra Set Dancers on a brilliant performance to collect the overall accolades.
Chairman of Cork Scór Tony McAulliffe and county cultural officer Richard Murphy presented the prizes to the winners and runners up. Boherbue emerged popular winners of the Padraig Ó Cearúil Cup as Best Scór Club in the county in a league competition based on participation and success at underage and adult level. In doing so, Boherbue were retaining their title.
