The Killoe group was mentored by Gràinne Fox and consisted of Olivia Whelan, Alanna McKeon, Anna Moorhead, Niamh O’Brien and Michelle Mollaghan.

Longford enjoyed double success at the Leinster GAA Scór na nÓg finals which took place at the National Opera House, Wexford on Sunday, January 14.

Katie Lynch, representing Ardagh St Patrick’s, was triumphant in the Aithriseoireacht (Recitation), while Killoe Emmet Óg were victorious in the Bailéad Ghrúpa (Ballad Group).

The Killoe group was mentored by Gràinne Fox and consisted of Olivia Whelan, Alanna McKeon, Anna Moorhead, Niamh O’Brien and Michelle Mollaghan.

Katie and the Killoe ballad group will now participate at the All-Ireland Scór na nÓg finals, which will be held in Sligo in February.

Meanwhile, the very talented Mostrim Scór Stage Presentation group narrowly missed out on provincial glory with their production of ‘Walters Spuds’.

Group members were Caoimhe Crossan, Cora Murphy, Setanta Flood, Aisling Browne, Caoimhe Connell, Meave Brady, Ailbhe Brady and Nadine Smith and they were managed by Pauline Flood and Kate O’Donohoe.

Killoe Emmet Óg were also represented in the Solo Singing category by Olivia Whelan and she was unlucky to lose out to Wexford’s Kayleigh Moran (Bannow/Ballymitty).

The Downs, Westmeath won the Stage Presentation and Set Dancing titles. Birr, Offaly were the Figure Dancing winners and Borris/Kilcotton, Laois won the Instrumental Music category.
