Loud cheers were heard in Belfast last Saturday night when our girl, Katie Shanahan was named as solo song winner in the All Ireland final. We are all so very proud of Katie in Borrisoleigh. Hundreds of well wishers gathered in McDonough Square on Sunday evening to welcome Katie home. Scór then held a reception for Katie in the community centre. The crowd were entertained by local singers and musicians. Katie is the first Borrisoleigh representative to win an All Ireland medal in Senior Scór. We also send congratulations to JK Brackens and to Newport on their victories.
