The result is six points better than 2011, and just 11 off this year's overall national winner, Abbeyshrule in South Longford earning Ballinahown a bronze medal award.
There were also good performances this year from Glasson, who received a highly commended award for a final tally of 273 marks, an increase of six and Athlone, who jumped a fantastic 12 marks on the 2011 standing,
Over in South Roscommon, the best performing area in 2012 was Lecarrow with a total of 255 points, a massive jump of 12 marks on their performance of twelve months ago. Nearby Curraghboy also had a good day at the office with a nine point gain to 246, while the rapidly growing area of Monksland received 205 marks.
