Well done to Molly Donnery who won the All Ireland Scór Talent Competition with her beautiful voice on Saturday March 1 in Castlebar, Co Mayo.
On hand to make the presentation was GAA President Liam O’Neill, a huge supporter of Scór over many years, and he was thrilled to present the award to his neighbour Molly. No doubt the celebrations will continue and the good wishes have been pouring in, but for now it is back to the school books for Molly.
