Rachael Lyons of St Patrick’s GAA Club, Ardagh, who is a student at the Mercy Secondary School in Ballymahon, swept aside the competition to win the storytelling category. Meanwhile, Nathan Brady, a student at Cnoc Mhuire in Granard who is attached to Colmcille GAA Club, clinched the top prize on the solo singing category.

Rachael and Nathan will now compete in the All-Ireland Finals, which will be held at the City West Hotel in Dublin on Saturday, February 14.

“We have high hopes for them,” said Pauline Flood, Chairperson of Longford Scór. “Nathan has won many fleadhs, has appeared on Scór Encore on TV, and has appeared on Miriam O’Callaghan’s show. He’s from a very musical family.

“Rachael is also from a musical background, and in addition to storytelling, she sings, and plays guitar and bodhran.”
