CROTTA ARE MUNSTER SCOR NA NOG CHAMPIONS
A packed hall at Eire Og G A A Pavilion, Ovens County Cork. was treated to the absolute best of talent on Saturday 15th April. Competitors from all 6 counties gave impressive displays and made things very difficult for the adjudicators on the day. But decisions were made and it is safe to say that we have an exemplary team of representatives for the province at the upcoming All Ireland final.
Michael Ryan was an outstanding Fear A Tí for the afternoon, keeping the show moving along nicely with some excellent insights along the way – you can’t beat the experience.
The Kingdom musicians were to the fore in the Instrumental Music competition with Crotta O Neills representing their Club, County and the North Kerry Hurling Board taking the win over Palasgrean, Diarmuid Ó Mathunas and Upperchurch /Drombane. This was a fantastic competition with next to nothing between all the groups. Playing “The Banks Of The Newfoundland” & “Andy McCanns Reel” the Kerry champions will now represent their club, county and province in a few weeks’ time.
Huge congratulations and well done to this talented group of Conor Brennan, Thomas Breen, Sarah Murphy, Ellen Trant and Grace Hannon Linnane, their mighty music mentor Aoife Murphy and fantastic Club Scor office Tom Breen who guided Crotta to its first Munster Scor title.
We would like to thank Aoife and Tom, the parents and everyone that has supported them on their journey to get here and we want to wish them the very best of luck in the National Final in the INEC in Killarney on May 6th.
