Pupils from Kilnagross taking part in the Scor na mBunscoileanna in Cloone
The two nights of Scór na mBunscoileanna took place in Cloone Community hall last Friday and in the Mayflower Drumshanbo on Saturday.
Fourteen schools took part over both nights and the standard of performances were an absolute credit to the schools, parents and teachers, the children really promoted the culture and talent of the schools.
Some very strong and youthful contender's to possibly go forward to Scor na nOg next Autumn. Question Time was a tough competition with teams with top marks right to the end on both nights.
Many thanks and credit to our Bean an Ti's, Friday night was compared by Carrigallen's, Grainne Ni Mhaille and Friday was hosted by St Mary's Laura Crossan.
The best performance on each night in each event got medals in first and second place. Very strong performances and big numbers in Solo Singing & Recitation on Friday night, to which the judges also gave highly, commended medals.
The Cormac Mac Giolla shield for the best school overall was won by Scoil Mhuire National School, Carrick-on-Shannon.
