Many congratulations to the Clonduff Scór na nÓg Ballad Group who competed in the 5-county Ulster Semi Final on Sunday 10th December in Swatragh Co Derry - two teams qualified from Down, Derry, Antrim Monaghan and Fermanagh to earn the right to compete for the Ulster title in St Patrick's High School Downpatrick on Sunday 13th January 2018. Very well done to (l to r) Kayleigh McPolin, Aoife Trainor, Emma McGreevy, Katie Murnin and Jordan McPolin (in front) and to your mentors, members of the 2017 All Ireland Scór Sinsir Champions - Caroline Carvill, Colleen Walls, Paul Kelly, Agnes Murnin. Keep up the hard work and we will see you in Downpatrick next month!



The Clonduff youngsters fought off competition from Glasdrumman, Saul and Ballygalget to clinch the County Title with their very polished performances of ‘Abbeyleix’ and ‘Trasna na dTonta’ (or ‘Westering Home’ to many of us). Some of this group have been together for four years and it is just reward for perseverance and effort. Well done (front row l to r): Kayleigh McPolin, Emma McGreevy, Katie Murnin, Aoife Trainor and at the back Jordan McPolin! And well done your mentors Colleen, Caroline and Paul; thanks to your parents and families who have supported you throughout. The group is pictured with William Smith County Cultural Officer, Paula Magee (County Scór Secretary) and John Devanney (Vice-chair Down County Board).
We will see you all in the Ulster Semi Final in Swatragh Co Derry on Sunday 9th December commencing 3pm

Over 40 Clonduff youngsters (U16) took part in the first rounds of Scór na nÓg 2018 held over the weekend of 10th-12th November 2017 in Burren Social Club, Glasdrumman AOH Hall and St Patrick's Primary School Hilltown. Clonduff had participants in all three venues but the big majority of them were in St Pat's. The Instrumental Music Group, Ballad Group and two Set Dancing teams qualified directly for South Down Final with quite a few others progressing to the Qualifying Round on 17th November in Mayobridge Community Centre. Competition, as in the first rounds, was very tight for the two remaining places in each discipline and there was little to choose between the top competitors and those not qualifying can count themselves unlucky! 
Aoife Trainor and Grace Clancy took the two places in Solo Singing; Sinead McPolin took one of the places in Recitation/Storytelling. They will join our winners from the first rounds in the South Down Final in St Mark’s Warrenpoint on Sunday @ 4pm. Clonduff will be very well represented by the two Solo Singers, Recitation, Ballad Group, Instrumental Music and two Set Dancing Teams. Plunkett McConville will be Fear an Ti and Mary Catherine Murray will sing Amhrán na bhFiann. Our Culture is in good health in the Clonduff GAA Club!
