What is Scor
In 1969, Cork 's Derry Gowen initiated Scór and in doing so provided the foresight to promote all the best in traditional music, song and dance under the Cumann Lúthchleas Gael banner. It allows GAA members and communities the social outlet to participate in a range of stage activity.
Cumann Lúthchleas Gael on promoting Scór at adult and juvenile levels has helped to play an important role on the revival of our culture and heritage. Both juveniles and adults in towns and villages countrywide have been afforded the opportunity to interact in the best of Irish culture.
Competitions commence within a parish and progress onto divisional level with the standard of fare ever improving onto county and provincial finals. As on the playing fields, the climax of the season comes on All Ireland Final Day with Athlone, Belfast , Castlebar, Killarney, Limerick and Millstreet amongst the locations destined by Scór personel over the recent past. There are eight events/disciplines in Scór that cover all aspects of Irish culture: Figure/Céilí Dancing, Solo Singing, Instrumental Music, Recitation/Scéalaíocht, Ballad Group, Novelty Act, Question Time and Set Dancing. The competition is divided into three age levels.
- Scór na bPáistí - Open to all children attending Primary School
- Scór na nÓg - Open to competitors - Under 17 years of age on January 1st.
- Scór Sinsear - Open to competitors - Over 17 years on January 1st.
Where there is more than one competitor or team interested in representing a club area, the club concerned shall select their representative in the section/competitions concerned. Clubs are encouraged to have their own competition to select representatives for divisional rounds, but shall be obliged to compete in at least two categories.
