Gaels from Killeavy, Whitecross and Cullyhanna will be amongst the large crowd expected at Saturday’s Ulster Scór na nÓg final in Downpatrick as their young ambassadors aim for a provincial title.
Having claimed the county Scór na nÓg crown and performing very well in the Ulster semi-final, the céilí dancing team from Cill Shléibhe will hope to emulate last year’s Armagh representatives, Whitecross, tomorrow night to retain the Ulster Scór na nÓg céilí title for Armagh. One of last year’s Ulster champions in the céilí discipline will return to the Ulster final yet again, this time in the solo singing competition. Cailíosa Ní Dhúill is well used to the big stage and having claimed the Armagh solo singing title for the second time, she will be hoping for a big performance on Saturday evening to add to her amazing haul across the Scór na nÓg disciplines and indeed in handball as well. The Coilleach Eanach léiriú will be looking forward to another Ulster final and they will be hoping to put in another solid performance at this stage to retain their Ulster title in léiriú. Is cinnte go mbeidh scoth na siamsaíochta traidisiúnta ar ardán san oíche amárach agus guíonn muid gach rath ar iomaitheoirí Ard Mhacha i gCraobh Uladh. Armagh GAA would like to send best wishes to Cill Shléibhe, to Cailíosa and to Coilleach Eanach and to all of their mentors and families for the Ulster Scór na nÓg final. The Ulster final will take place at St Patrick’s Grammar School, Downpatrick and will get underway at 5pm on Saturday 13 January.
