Dungloe woman Catriona Solan won the Ulster final of Scór Sinsir in Monaghan last weekend!
Scór is a branch of the GAA which encourages the social elements of Ireland’s traditional past times, with eight categories encompassing all aspects of Irish culture including; Céilí dancing, solo singing, ballad group, recitation, stage presentation, instrumental music, set dancing, and a table quiz!
Catriona will now go on to compete in the All-Ireland finals in Belfast on the 8th of May.
Speaking to Donegal Woman, Catriona says; “I sang The Dying Rebel, the first verse in Irish.
“I am totally over the moon. There was huge competition there, it is always very hard to get an Ulster medal.
“I was particularly delighted for Fergus Mc Gee who is a huge support and has put massive effort into Scor in Donegal. It’s great to be representing club, county and now province alongside Gweedore club.”
A spokesperson for Dungloe GAA says; “A very deserved success for a very talented singer. All at CLG An Clochan Liath are rightly very proud of your success.”
“We would appeal to supporters to come along to this very special occasion in the club’s history. We will organise a bus for anyone wishing to travel. We extend our congratulations to our neighbours Gaoth Dobhair who also won the Ulster final in the sketch competition.”
Dungloe GAA also expressed their commiserations to the instrumental group of Aisling Sweeney, Amy McGarvey, Geraldine Bonner and Karl Doherty who also competed.
