Scór

Scór is a GAA competition that combines all the colour and rivalry of Gaelic Games with the social/fun element of Ireland’s traditional pastimes.  The competition was established by the GAA in 1969 with the aim of promoting Ireland’s traditional pastimes and culture, while offering club members the chance to meet up, have fun and represent their club during the winter months while Football and Hurling had ceased.

 

Scór na bPáistí is confined to Primary school going children.  There are 10 events/disciplines in Scór that cover all aspects of Irish culture: Figure/Céilí Dancing, Solo Singing, Instrumental Music, Recitation/Scéalaíocht, Ballad Group, Novelty Act, Solo Music, Solo Dance, Question Time and Set Dancing.  The competition also has 2 other age levels, Scór na nÓg, for young people under 17 and Scór Sinsear, for those over 17.

 

Just like the All-Ireland Football and Hurling Championships clubs, those taking part in Scór must first take part in a county championship.  The winners go on to the provincial championship and then the All-Ireland final.  Scór na bPáistí ends at county final level and doesn’t have provincial or All-Ireland competition.

 

Scoil an Athar Tadhg takes part in all the various disciplines.  The children greatly benefit from performing on stage and such opportunities work wonders for their self-confidence.
