The Glenbeigh/Glencar Sports Hall was the setting on Sunday for an outstanding County Final of Coiste Scor Na nOg, featuring 21 clubs from around the County.
Proceedings got under way with the Quiz and here it was a ding dong struggle that needed a tie breaker with Spa and Tralee Parnells. But, at the end of the day the honours went to former All Ireland winners from Spa; (Emer O Keeffe, Donal Hickey, Sean Hickey, Ian Coffey) who got 52 out of 60 correct answers prior to the tie break. Ballymacelligott came in 3rd place. Next up were the Figure Dancers where Dromid Perarses just edged out Laune Rangers into second place. Six Solo Singers took part in this discpline but at the end of proceedings it was Dr. Crokes;( Liam Randals) and, Caide Ban Chorca Dhuidhne (Caoimhe Ni Chiobhain) to the forefront with the former to go forward. In the Recetation catagory Fintan O Sullivan, Reenard got the judges verdict with Eabha Healy, Glenflesk in second place. Just leading up to the interval we had the Ballad Groups with 4 in all competing and with entertainment to the full East Kerrys Glenflesk took first place over St. Pats, Blennerville. In the Novelty competition Reenard came up trumps with Tralee/St. Brendans a close second. Instrumental Music- 6 clubs competing and first went to Finuge, North Kerry Football who got the nod over their neighbours from North Kerry Hurling Board Crotta, who tied with Kilcummin, East Kerry for second place.
