Go neamhghnáthach i mbliana tá 17 sa chraobh.  Sin é an slí ar oibrigh sé amach ós na moltóirí Paddy Glackin, Maeve Donelly agus Connie O Connell agus seachas bheith ag cur isteach orthu nó brú do chur ortha, do ghlacamar leis an mbreis.  Leis an tromlach agaibh nár imig ar aghaidh, tá mo bhuíochas agus mo gheann libh agus cuimhnigh nách é seo ach breith ar an 5 rian a chrochamhar suas ar an idirlinn.   Tá roinnt cáirde pearsanta liom féin in bhur measc.  Beidh Séamus i dteangabháil leis an 17 a chuaigh ar aghaidh.

Unusually this year we have 17 finalists.  This is because of the way the marks fell from the 3 adjudicators Paddy Glackin, Maeve Donelly and Connie O Connell.  Rather then interfere and force a reduction we decided to take the list.  To the majority of you, those who did not make the list, i would say you have my affection and gratitude for competing.  It is not a reflection on your overall playing, just the playing of the 5 tracks you uploaded.  I have some personal friends among you.  To the 17,  Séamus will be in touch with regard to arrangements.
