SCOR SINSEAR CRAOBH NA hEIREANN 2012/13. The Glenflesk Figure Dancers of, Angela McCarthy, Linda O Donoghue, Siobhain Cashman, Mairead Cashman, Norita Cashman, Lisa Cronin, Cliona Creedon, Niamh Favier and Maria Cronin along with their Dancing Teacher, Norrie Sheehan and many supporters made the long trip to the Dome, in County Derry on Saturday last for the All Ireland Finals of Senior Scor. In fairness it was a duel between Omagh, St. Endas and Glenflesk for the title but unfortunately even though the Kingdom ladies danced to perfection and were well in contention for honours it was the Tyrone Club who received what must be a split decision when the Adjudicators made their final deliberations. However great credit is due to all associated with this wonderful group of ladies who have done both their Club and County proud and certainly there is no shame in defeat when you can perform like they did.
