Young musicians appear on TG4 talent competition

FOUR local young musicians raised the roof when they played at the RTE television studios in Donnybrook, in the first round of the Scór Encore talent competition on TG4.

Their performance was recorded for airing at a later date, and a panel of judges will select which winning acts on the day go forward to the next round of the competition.

The musicians – Cathal Lee on banjo; Aine Neary on fiddle; Regina Prendergast on concertina; and Kate O'Loughlin on fiddle – qualified for the event at U18 level for Realt na Mara Ballygarrett GAA Club, through the North Wexford Scór competition, and then the county Scór competition.

They then auditioned for the television programme and earned their place in front of the cameras. They are members of Gorey Ballygarrett Comhaltas and Tuaisceart Loch Garman Comhaltas.
