When final round of questions were completed and total marks totted up it was Churchill with 91 marks out of 100 from the Tralee/St. Brendans/Castleisland Board that will represent the County at the All Ireland Finals to be held in the Travellers Friend, Castlebar on Saturday April 26th. 

It was a very successful evening for the East Kerry Board who scooped 4 titles; Kilcummin in both Set Dancing and Ballad Group, Spa in the Recitation while Glenflesk made it a very successful evening for the Board taking the honours in the Figure Dancing. Spa Club were the overall winners of Club of the night and Club Scór Officer Shelia McCarthy accepted the Shield on their behalf. 

Other winners on the night were; Ballydonoghue in Instrumental Music, Austin Stacks in Solo Singing and Na Gaeil in Leiriú.
