There was great excitement in Cappamore last Saturday night when it was announced that Katie Shanahan was the winner of the Solo song competition in the Munster Final of Senior Scór.  This is a fantastic achievement for Katie as a little over a year ago she won the Munster Final in Scór na nÓg.  Katie will participate in the All Ireland final in Belfast on the 6th May.  It was a great night for Tipperary in Cappamore as they won 6 out of 7 competitions on the night.  We would like to congratulate JK Brackens and Newport clubs on their victories.  We look forward to the blue and gold being well represented in Belfast.
