What a day it was for Tipperary in the All Ireland Finals of Scór na nÓg 2014 in Castlebar on Saturday 1st of March.
Seán Treacy’s Club represented us in the new All County Table Quiz held in GMIT .In an extremely tough contest of knowledge and wit,in which 100 questions were asked of the competitors,our boys Brian Carey,Patrick Carey,Conor Nolan and Shane Stapleton produced a sparkling performance to come fourth out of the 28 counties entered.Comhghairdeas libh a bhuachaillí . Dhein sibh éacht ar son bhur glub agus ar son na contaethe. Comhghairdeas le bhur dtuistí agus le bhur lucht tacaíochta chomh maith. Bhí sibh thar barr.
Moving to the Royal Theatre in the afternoon excitement was palpable in the Tipperary camp as the inaugural Léiriú competition got underway. Standards were excellent from the four provinces but Borrisoleighs enactment of Briseann an Dúchas trí shúile an chait was received very well by the huge audience in the auditorium.We waited with baited breath for the adjudication and when Borrisoleigh Co .Tipperary were proclaimed winners,the bleu and gold was unfurled as players,mentors and families went wild with excitement.
Liam Ó Néill ,Uachtarán CLG presented All Ireland medals to Kate Delaney,Orla Ryan,Ciara Ryan,James Ryan,Nicky Cooney,Luke Cooney,Ewan Younge and Aaron Rabbitte and also presented the Perpetual Cup to a proud Orla Ryan-daughter of the author of the drama and mentor to the group-a very proud Kay Ryan.
The strains of Sliabh na mBan lingered long into the evening as the realisation of All Ireland Victory dawned. The wonderful Borrisoleigh Scór committee organised a lovely Homecoming on Sunday evening which saw,family friends and Scór supporters from far and wide come to congratulate and celebrate with na Buaiteoirí óga arís.
