The Leinster Semi-finals of Scór took place last weekend and Laois were represented in Clonroche by very talented acts.
Ballyfin’s Paddy Fitzpatrick represented us in Solo Singing and Recitation with his own compositions.
We were represented in Instrumental Music by Kilcavan Club and again by Ballyfin in the Ballad Group.
