What is Scór?

Scór is the GAA's 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! Scór Here in County Roscommon we also run a competition called Scór Na bPaistí 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). In Roscommon, Scór na nÓg entails four preliminary rounds, two in the north of the county and two in the south, winners here progress to the county semi-final (also known as the northern final or southern final). The county final is a big occasion every year and is usually held in early January (The county final of Scór Sinsear takes place in March). 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!
