The Munster Scór season came to aconclusion at City Hall Cork on Saturday last March 2nd  with the Provincial  Scor Sinsear Finals.  A large and enthusiastic crowd attended thefinals which provided great entertainment over a  5 hour period that saw representatives from all six counties taking to the stage andin fairness the adjudicators had to make some difficult decisions before theirfinal deliberations; such was the serious talent that was on view .

Fear a Ti for the occasion was Jerry OSullivan, Cork,  who really dosent needany introduction ; one of the most highly rated Administrators in CumannLuthchieas Gael  having just completedhis term as Comhairle na Mumhan; and the man from Cloyne did a wonderful  job; while Munster Scor Secretary, Jerry Doody got the show on the roadsinging Amhran Na bhfiann.

From a Kerry point of view there was no joyon this occasion but all five who represented the Kingdom; Solo Singing,Proinnsias O Cathasaigh, Recitation, Sonny Egan, Crotto, Ballad Group St.Marys, Leiriu, Ballydonoghue and Set Dancing, Gneeveguilla;  with each performing brilliantly but just proved a bridge too far on thisoccasion; but in a few of those discplines the Kerry representatives mustfeel  hard done by. However it was agreat honour for Scor in the County to have so many involved at this stage ofthe competition and all the participants can feel proud of their performances,they did both their respective Clubs and County proud on the day. 

Both Cork and Tipperary took the honoursbetween them with 3 titles each; Cork in Solo Singing, Instrumental Music andBallad Group while Tipperary were victorious in Recitation, Figure Dancing andLeiriu. Clare completed the days programme with the Set Dancing.
