A fantastic achievement on May Bank Holiday weekend for St. Lawrence’s Primary School, Fintona, as they have won the BBC Radio Ulster Junior School Choir of the Year for 2017.

In a weekend when a Primary School in County down wooed the judges with four “Yes'” on Saturday evening’s Britain’s Got Talent – it is difficult not to be impressed by the splendid young Fintona choir who have impressed all before them in a very talented province.

A terrific accomplishment for the small west Tyrone School. Well done to all involved… #SCOTY

Looking after the Choir was Sinead Loane and she was clearly elated following the fantastic success in the Ulster Hall today…

“We are overwhelmed. The standard is phenomenal. What we have witnessed in the Ulster Hall has been a megamix of choral magnificence and to be crowned winners of this award has surpassed anything we could have expected, or even dared to dream for the children all along.”

“There is such a buzz in our Community and the build-up has been amazing. This is a moment that everyone here will never forget and cherish forever”
