2022 Munster Scór Sinsear Final
Four counties shared the spoils at the 2022 Munster Scór Sinsir Final held last Sunday, October 16th in a packed Cappamore Community Centre in Co. Limerick.
All Munster’s six counties were represented across the eight disciplines with competition of the highest standard throughout the evening.
The evening’s proceedings got underway with the Tráth na gCeist and after the tough, challenging questions set by Maistir na gCeist, Liam Rabitte, Monaleen of Limerick, Churchill of Kerry and Millstreet of Cork finished in the top three, thus progressed to the on-stage quiz later in the programme and in doing so booked their ticket for the All-Ireland Final.
The stage competitions got underway with the Rince Foirne where Tipperary’s Newcastle dancing the ‘Cross Reel’ completed their Munster Scór Sinsir four in a row and ensured their place in Castlebar as they hope to complete a three in a row on the National stage.
All six counties took part in the Amhránaíocht Aonair and it was Kerry’s first win of the night where Mark O’Leary of Gneeveguilla took the Provincial crown following his rendition of ‘The Hills Around Listowel’. In Aithriseoireacht, Noel Joyce of JK Brackens took victory to now go on and defend the 2020 All Ireland title he won last November in Bekan, Co. Mayo.
The first half was completed with the Bailéad Ghrúpa where Newport won out for the ‘Premier’ with their songs ‘The Streets of Promise’ and ‘The Orchard’. After the ‘sos’, Monaleen took victory for the ‘Treaty County’ following the completion of the on-stage quiz and after going to tie-breaker questions with Churchill.
The Newport Nuachleas group ensured a double of Munster crowns for their club and now hope to complete a ‘hatrick’ of All Ireland titles, like fellow Tipperary club Newcastle in Rince Foirne. Kilshannig earned Cork’s only Munster title of the evening and will head to Castlebar with hopes of reclaiming the Ceol Uirlise cup they won for ‘The Rebels’ in 2019.
East Kerry’s Gneeveguilla took a second Munster cup back to the Kingdom following their performance of the ‘Caledonian Set’ in the Rince Set competition.
Chairman of the Munster GAA Council, Ger Ryan presented the provincial silverware along with Cathaoirleach Coiste Scór na Mumhan, Mairéad Uí Fhaoláin and wished the Munster Champions the very best of luck as they now go forward to represent the province at the All-Ireland Final on Saturday 12th of November at the TF Royal Theatre, Castlebar, Co. Mayo.
