Glenavy host Ulster Semi Final of Scór

Moneyglass Instrumental and ballad groups who are both through to the Ulster finals

After a break of 9 years, Antrim hosted an Ulster Scór Sinsir Semi Final in Glenavy on 11th March 2018.  The first Semi Final was held on the previous night , 10th March, in Burtonport, Co. Donegal.

Glenavy was the venue for the occasion and what a great venue it was! A huge thanks to their committee and volunteers for providing a great venue. St Clare’s Hall was packed to capacity with supporters and participants from Down, Derry, Monaghan, Fermanagh and our own County Antrim and there was a fantastic atmosphere and great support for all of the competitors .

The Bean an Tí, Fionnuala McAteer from Kickhams, Creggan, did a fantastic job and kept the night running smoothly.

Antrim took part in 6 of the 7 disciplines . First up was Lámh Dhearg who danced the 4 hand reel and gave a lovely performance. Next was Órlaith McAteer from Creggan, who sang a beautiful version of the Irish song ” Jimí mo mhile stór.” Aisling Dean from Glenavy was next to give a fantastic performance in the recitation section. Moneyglass represented Antrim in the Ballad Group section and also in the Instrumental Music and both groups progressed to the Ulster final. Glenavy’s Léiriú was also successful in clinching a place in the Ulster final after a great performance. We are

delighted to have 3 acts in the Ulster final.

The Ulster Final which will take place in Silverbridge on 24th March at 5pm.
