COISTE SCOR NA NOG CRAOBH NA hEIREANN 2012/13 The curtain came down in Scor Na nOg the first Scor competition of the year that started back in November 2012 at District Board level and came to a conclusion on Saturday last February 23rd in the Dome in County Derry where the All Ireland Finals took place. Kerry were represented in both Recitation, Gearoid Galvin representing his North Kerry club, St. Senans and Spa from the East Kerry Board Liam Spillane, Gary O’Sullivan, Ciaran O’Doherty, Eoin O’Donoghue, Katie O’Connor, Anna O’Connor, Katie Cronin, and Ciara O’Shea taking part in the Set Dancing. The standard of competition was of the highest order with four clubs in each category and just one to be crowned All Ireland Champions; it certainly kept everybody in tenderhooks until the Adjudicators made their final deliberations; however despite giving tremendous performances our Kerry representatives failed to get the Adjudicators nod on the day. In the Recitation Gearoid Galvin was just edged out by Monaghan while the Spa Set Dancers must feel unlucky as they were well in the shake up for honours also. Cavan were the winners here and surely after appearing in the last 7 consecutive All Ireland Finals they deserved their moment of joy in securing their first title in this discipline. There was some consolation for Kerry though as Boherbue of Cork won the Figure Dancing and here Triona Mangan of Killarney. Tipperary in the Novelty Act were the only other Munster County to win.
ALL IRELAND On behalf of the North Kerry Football Board we would like to take this opportunity to wish Gearoid Galvin of St. Senans who will be representing his Club, District Board, County and Province in the Recitation catagory at the All Ireland Finals of Scor Na Nog which will take place in the Dome in County Derry on this Saturday 23rd February.

This Saturday March 23rd is a very special day for the families of Gearoid Galvin, St, Senans and the Set Dancing group from Spa comprising of Liam Spillane, Gary O’Sullivan, Ciaran O’Doherty, Eoin O’Donoghue, Katie O’Connor, Anna O’Connor, Katie Cronin, and Ciara O’Shea who will be representing their Clubs and County in the Scor Na nOg All Ireland Finals which will take place on this Saturday February 23rd at the Dome in County Derry
While some may think that all of Kerry’s efforts revolve around activities on the field of play, I can assure you that on this occasion the very best of Kerry talent will be displayed in two very important categories namely Recitation and Set Dancing at the All Ireland Finals of Scor na nÓg.
To reflect on that fantastic journey I will begin by giving a brief profile on the competitors that carry all our hopes and best wishes. In the Recitation category we have a young man by the name of Gearoid Galvin carrying the County colours. Gearoid hails from the St. Senans Club in North Kerry and having been involved in Scor for the past seven years; 2012/13 was the year that he made the break-through winning a County and Munster title in this category. But indeed he is no stranger to the stage having played the leading role in the Clubs Novelty Act and he has to his credit four County Titles, along with making three Munster Final appearances. He also featured in All Irelands and won Titles at Culture Corner and Scleipe Gaeil, (Scealaiocht) Scoil Competitions. The Spa, Set Dancers, carry the East Kerry Football Board and County Colours and who make up the very talented set that saw them emerge in recent times from Scor Na bPaisti a competition first introduced in 2004. Certainly with 12 Senior All Ireland Dancing Titles to their name I suppose All Ireland glory is nothing new to the Spa Club when it comes to Dancing; with their Seniors having achieved glory in both Figure, (6) and Set (5) since 2002. The remaining title was won by Siobhain O Brien in the Solo Singing category back in the late 80s. A remarkable achievement indeed. Having achieved glory at Scor Na bPaisti this latest group who are new to the scene at this level will be strong contenders for a National Title going by their performances to date. However the Club having been involved in Scor Na nOg for over 30 years or so ; this is only their second time to contest an All Ireland at this grade. However the Clubs record speaks for itself when it comes to National Titles in dancing. So spare a taught during the next few days for these young competitors as they embark in a lifetime memory by representing their Club and County at All Ireland level in the wonderful Dome in the beautiful city of Derry. We know they will do us all proud.
