Cooraclare Claim Munster Scór Crown

Cooraclare GAA club Novelty act capped off an excellent year of Scór activities taking  the Munster Scór Sinsir Nuachleas title on Saturday evening last in Newport, Co. Tipperary. The member of the groups are Helen Kelly, Monica Lillis. Marina Mulqueen, Senan Lillis, Michael Griffin, Joe Garry, Johnny Friel & James Corry.
Clare were represented at the packed event in 5 categories and all acquitted themselves well in high standard contests.
Éire Óg, Inis were most unlucky to lose out in the opening competition, Tráth na gCeist, going down by just 1 mark in the preliminary rounds before Sionnan Ó Laighléis, Cuar an Chláír gave another powerful rendition of the Bishop’s speech from John B. Keane’s “The Field” in the Aithriseoireacht competition, but had to give best to LImerick’s, Rita Uí Ghrádaigh.
The Clare Bailéad Ghrúpa winners, Cooraclare Ladies Football Club, roused the large attendance at the Tipperary venue but it was the local group, Newport, who successfully defended their title.
An Tobar, winners of the Clare Uirlise title, made a brave bid to add provincial honours but, in what must have been a very marginal call, the honours went to Corcaigh’s, Clann na nGael.

Success finally came to the Banner in the Nuachleas category when the Cooraclare sketch beat off strong Cork and Tipperary opposition to claim the crown last held by the West Clare club in 2013. The drama titled “Sceal an Iascaire” has an 8 strong cast depicting a humourous tale from ages past and proved to be a real hit with the audience. The sky blues will now contest the All Ireland final at the INEC in Killarney on November 18th.
