The U13 Girls in the Truagh Choir with their mentors, Emily and Ellen McMeel, returned
from the Community Games Finals in Athlone with an All-Ireland victory on Sunday,
May 29th 2011. This was a great achievement as the competition was extremely high.
They arrived back to St. Mellans where a huge crowd of family, friends and well-wishers
gathered to meet them and congratulate them. Inside they were officially welcomed
by Chairman of Gaeil Truicha, Raymond Treanor, and Parish Priest, Fr. Sean Nolan.
The choir rendered their winning pieces to rapturous applause after which Emily presented
the All-Ireland medal to each participant. Two of the girls, on behalf of the choir,
presented bouquets of flowers to Emily and Ellen.
Members of the Choir include: Nicole Daly, Leona McKenna, Amanda McCaughey, Megan
McKenna, Eilis Keenan, Kenna Harnett, Chloe Magnone, Laura McKenna, Megan McQuaid,
Ellen Deery, Sinead Rafferty, Megan Markey, Amy Halligan, Emma Geary, Ciara Treanor,
