Gallen Community School has triumphed for a second time in All-Ireland Scór competition.
Under the superb direction of Ms Deborah Reynolds, the school claimed the All- Ireland Scór Ballad Group title for the second time at the weekend. The latest success follows on from their first triumph back in 2012.
The group, made up of students Zoe Rooney, Avril Spain, Valene Greer, Sarah Kenny and Reveina Devery, did the school proud with their excellent renditions of ‘The Ballad of Michael Collins’ and ‘Eoghainin O’ Ragadain’ which saw them gain national honours once again in the TF Theatre in Castlebar.
The All-Ireland winning team received a rapturous reception from members of Ferbane/Belmont GAA club and the local community on their return.
