Quiz Team Winners L-R: Daniel Sheehan, Shawn Carey, coach Brenda Pierse, Eddie Browne and Ciaran Pierse
Coiste Scór na bPaistí Chiarrai Thuaidh took place last Sunday 26th Feb in the Tintean, Ballybunion to a packed Theatre. The audience was treated to over five hours of fantastic entertainment from the young competitors of North Kerry, representing 11 clubs. The evening finished with a performance from the Scór na nÓg 2012 All Ireland Music Winners from Ballydonoghue who represented Kerry in Castlebar, Mayo a few weeks ago.
Emmets were well represented on the day. Olivia Stack took the North Kerry title for Amhranaoiocht Aonaoir singing Lough Sheelin Side against very strong competition from 8 other clubs. Our Quiz Team of Daniel Sheehan, Ciaran Pierse, Eddie Browne and Shawn Carey took the title for Trath na gCeisteanna giving an oustanding performance answering 21 out of the 22 questions correctly. Well done to their coach Brenda Pierse as all the hard work paid off.

Commiserations to our other 2 acts who both gave outstanding performances but weren't the judges choice on the day to go forward to the semi final on this occasion. Seamus O Sullivan gave a brilliant Recitation of Peig the Damsels Slate House. He did the club proud and came in a commendable 3rd place out of 8 competitors thanks to his coach Frances Kennedy. Our Ceol Uirlise - Music Group were unfortunate also on the day, comprising of Meabh Trench, Edel Quinn, Darragh Mackessy and Aisling Keane. They played 2 tunes; The Humours of Ennistymon and The Mountain Tune. Again they received a very commendable 3rd place out of 10 groups which is a great achievement and great credit to their coach Karen Trench.

Finally, congratulations to Jack Hennessy and his team for another very successful and well organised day of Scór.

Next up is the County Semi Final in Currow Sunday 11th March @ 2pm for Olivia Stack Singing and our Quiz Team- Daniel Sheehan, Ciaran Pierse, Eddie Brown, Shawn Carey.
