Thank You

Grace Ryan and Marie Tynan would like to thank everyone who supported them for their recent Belarussian Orphanage Project Fund. After holding a hugely successful night in Stapleton’s Bar on Friday April 18th, they have reached their target of €2,500. Many thanks to the local musicans, singers, auctioneer and all who helped out in any way. Above all, thanks to you for your generosity, because without it we would not be travelling on the 17th July.

Scór Homecoming
Members of Scór na bPáistí providing entertainment at the Homecoming
On Sunday evening last 27th April, in the Marian Hall, the Scór Committee organised a homecoming for the All-Ireland Senior Finalists in the Novelty Act competition . We previously had a homecoming in February for the Scór na nÓg – All Ireland Finalists in the Novelty Act competition. Yet again, they were the only Tipperary Representatives in the All-Ireland Final. They did their Parish, their County and Munster proud on the previous night in Killarney and were pipped on the night by a gallant team from Tyrone.

The team included Chris Vahey, Sarah Maher, Sharon Madden, Cathal Bourke, Rory Ryan, Jason Fahey and Conor Walsh. The coaches were Jack & Josie Fahey.

The MC as usual was Phil Maher. Parish Representatives from Scór na nÓg, Scór na bPáisti and Senior Scór provided entertainment. It was then the turn of the Novelty Act team to do their Act, much to the delight of all present. This was followed by well wishes from the Chairperson, Breda Ryan, Secretary of County Scór, Mary Bourke and Noel Joyce, Oifigeach Cultur, who all acknowledged their wonderful achievement. Jack Fahey acknowledged the great achievement by the team and confirmed that they would be back again next year to win the All Ireland.

Noel Joyce presented Cerificates to the team and Breda Ryan on behalf of Scór presented vouchers to them. Everyone then adjourned to the back room for refreshments.

Enjoying the homecoming festivities in the Marian Hall last Sunday.
