Double Scor Success - In a highly entertaining evening of competition at a packed Clonmore Community Centre on Friday 18th, Moyne Templetuohy emerged victorious in both Novelty Act and Recitation in the County final of Senior Scor. They will now represent Tipperary in the Munster semi-final which will take place at Cappoquin, Co. Waterford on Saturday, March 5th. Well done to J.K. Brackens, victorious in Instrumental Music, Moycarkey-Borris in Ballad Group and Loughmore who topped the poll in Trath na gCeist. Thanks to all our supporters who travelled on the night and particularly to Bridie, a sprightly 90 year old from Manselstown. Best of luck to all the Mid representatives in the next round and to Borrisoleigh in Solo Song and Set Dance and Newcastle in Rince Foirne.
