Dún Uladh Killyclogher was the venue for the Tyrone Scór Sinsear finals on Sunday afternoon. A huge crowd turned out to see the best in music, dance, song and stage craft in the county and those in attendance were treated to an evening of quality cultural performances. Fear a Tí Stiofán Ó hAodha oversaw the evening’s clar and ensured all ran to schedule.
After the events were completed and the Tráth na gCeist over the time came for the tallying of the votes and the awarding of the winners. First up was Rince Foirne with Omagh N Éanna taking the title.
Solo singing was next on the clar and the winner this time went to a club with a long tradition of achievement in Scór. Donaghmore’s Niamh Nic Cristóil secured the title following her rendition of “Leaving Limerick”.
Third on the programme was the keenly awaited Aithriseoireacht where again the standard of competition was extremely high. Defending county champion Annette Ní Cheallaigh retained her crown with “Lack of Identity”.
The standard in the Traditional Music competition was as expected very high and it was easy to see just how difficult a task that the adjudicators face when deciding the winners of the various disciplines. This year it was Derrylaughan Kevin Barry’s who were deservedly declared county champions.
Derrytresk were the sole entrant in the Léiriu competition and unsurprisingly retained their county title with a very entertaining piece entitled “The Rath of The Fairies”. Errigal Ciaran were declared winners in the Ballad Group section while Omagh St Endas picked up the Rince Seit title with a very assured performance from a very experienced team.
The final event on the programme saw six reams compete in the Tráth na gCeit section before An Eaglais N Pádraig lifted the title.
