We are delighted to hear the news that Aghagallon’s Bronagh Lennon has been appointed to the National Scór committee in Croke Park by newly appointed GAA President Larry McCarthy. This is a fantastic opportunity for Bronagh and a great privilege for the club and County. To serve on a National committee is a huge honour and a testament to the hard work and dedication that Bronagh has given to Scór in Antrim over the last number of years.
Bronagh is no stranger to Scór. She has competed at both Scór na nÓg and Scór Sinsir levels, having great success as a member of our Ballad Group and even took part in the quiz and Rince Foirne competitions. As well as being a competitor, before her involvement at County level, she was a mentor for younger scór competitors within the club. She holds 7 County titles, 5 Ulster titles and a coveted All Ireland medal in the ballad group section. Following the success of the ballad group in 2015, they performed at the Senior All Ireland Hurling Final in Croke Park and they also received an Ulster President’s Award.
After being appointed as County Cultural Officer for County Antrim in 2015, Bronagh served on the Antrim County Board and Ulster Scór and Irish Language Committees, bringing a new lease of life to Scór in Antrim and taking the competition levels in the County to new heights. During her period as Cultural Officer, Antrim hosted a number of Ulster semi -finals as well as the All Ireland Final in Belfast’s Waterfront Hall in 2017. Antrim Scór competitors saw much success during this time, winning a number of Ulster titles in both Scór na nÓg and Scór Sinsir, including 3 All Ireland Scór na nÓg titles. Over the lockdown period, she continued to keep Scór alive with a wide range of online activities such as Culture week, a six week Scór singing programme, virtual scór and an online concert for Seachtain na Gaeilge as well as the virtual performance of the green glens of Antrim. We wish Bronagh every success in her 3 year term on Coiste Náisiúnta Scór in Croke Park. Ádh mór ort!
