St Dominics had a well deserved victory over Shannon Gaels in this U21 Semi-Final played on Sat night in a wet and windy Kiltoom
The semi-finals of Scor na nOg took place in Ballyleague at the weekend. Comhghairdeas to all the St. Dominics competitors who secured a place in the Final. For the first time in several years St. Dominics will have representation in all categories as our musicians booked their place in the final on Friday night last. Thank you to all the competitors and mentors who have worked so hard in keeping the tradition of Scor alive in St. Dominics. We wish them all the best in the final and would ask that you lend your support to them in the Dean Crowe Theatre Athlone, on December 11th. This is an all-ticket affair and has been a sold out event for the past few years, so early booking is essential for those seeking tickets. Tickets can only be booked from the Dean Crowe’s ticket box on 090 64 92129 or online atwww.deancrowetheatre.com final.
Our U15 hurlers played Four Roads in the Semi Final on Saturday in Four Roads. This was a very hard physical match with both teams playing their hearts out to qualify for the final next weekend. St Dominics played in a determined fashion to gain revenge for their previous defeat to Four Roads in the U16 Championship. After some great play from the defence in the first half who supplied good ball into the forwards, they lead by 3.07 to 0.4. Four Roads started brightly in the 2nd half with 2 points but then St Dominics regained superiority and ran out convincing winners on a final score line of 5.10 to 0.7. It was a very good team performance and we wish the team well in the Final next weekend. Please come out and support the team next weekend.

The Scor na nOg Parish final took place to a full house on Sunday 23rd October in St. John’s Community Centre. 83 boys and girls aged from 7 to 16 took part in 8 disciplines. First up was the figure dancers who started proceedings with the High Caul Cap and St. Patrick’s Day. The solo singing was hotly contested with Aisling Byrne and David Finnerty ultimately winning out in what was a strong field of some of the finest singers the parish has to offer. Three teams entered the ceol uirlise and the audience were treated to some fine music from tinwhistle and fiddle. The scealaiocht had seven competitors who recited Yeats to some self penned poetry. (Vincent Pierse look out!!!). Roisin Roddy and Micky Joe Egan won through to the next round. Seven ballad groups took to the stage on the night with some wonderful renditions including Molly Malone and Connemara. There were several younger ballad groups who showed that talent is alive and well in St. Dominics. After the interval we had the brainiacs for trath na gCeist. Thirteen competitors took to the stage and after 30 questions from Pat Dennehy we had a tie break. It took a further six questions to find two teams who who will represent the club in the next round. The novelty act was the second last discipline of the night and once again the audience were not left disappointed. From a three legged man to an elephant, from Fionn MacCool to aunt Maggie’s toenails, not to mention a flag which could cause damage and lads on the fiddle, the audience were left in stitches with the antics on stage. The set dancers proved a fitting finale for the night. With all the competition out of the way, the way was left clear for the younger members of St. Dominics to show what they can do and boy can they do it! They performed Snow White in the novelty act and their songs of ‘Bare Necessities’ and ‘We are the World’ showed that the tradition of Scor is in safe hands. A huge thanks to all the participants, mentors, Fear an Tí Thomas Murray and everyone who helped in any way to make this a successful day. Congratulations to all the winners and good luck as you go forward to the next round.
The quarter finals of Scor na nOg South will be held on Saturday 5th November in St. John’s Community Centre, Lecarrow. Please come and give your support to all our competitors on what promises to be excellent nights entertainment.
