What is Scór?
Scór is the GAAs cultural competition and it is open to every club in the country regardless of whether you are a Junior C Hurling club in Leitrim or a Senior Football club in Kerry!
It is divided into two sections, Scór Na nÓg, for young people under 17 and Scór Sinsear, for everyone over 17! In County Roscommon a competition called Scór Na bPaistí is held for National School children.
There are eight events / disciplines in Scór that cover all aspects of Irish culture and they are Figure Dancing, Solo Singing, Instrumental Music, Recitation, Ballad Group, Novelty Act, Question Time and Set Dancing. The competitions are organised in each county by the Coiste Scór, a committee, which is made up of delegates from clubs (every club is entitled to two delegates). The County Final of Scór na nÓg is a big occasion every year and is usually held in December (The county final of Scór Sinsear takes place in February / March). Like Football and Hurling Clubs qualify for the County Scór na nÓg final by winning through a number preliminary rounds. The County Final Winners progress to the Connacht final and from here to the national final. It is a tremendous honour for any club to be represented on All Ireland Scór final day; indeed the All Ireland Scór champions are presented with the same medal you get if you were to win Sam Maguire or Liam McCarthy and will be presented to you by the President of the GAA!
