Scór

“Scór is upon us again”

The Scór season is about to begin again in Tír Eoghain for the forty ninth successive year. The Scór ideal was launched in Cork in 1970 and appeared in Tír Eoghain in the following year. As we approach the Golden Jubilee of Scór in Tír Eoghain clubs are asked to prepare this year for the celebrations and make an extra special effort to have entrants in at least three of the disciplines which make up the Scór programme.

Achieving this target of three is easily achievable in any of our clubs as there is a clear wealth of talent therein. This can be made up with as little as four or five children but in reality is a golden opportunity to involve a lot of children from every club in Tír Eoghain. Remember our aim in recent years is to have every club involved in Scór for the Golden Jubilee of Scór in Scór in 2020. Let this year be the beginning of the preparations. Last year there were a total of forty-three clubs taking part in Scór competition. Do you want your club to be one of few that do not participate.

Fair notice of the dates for Scór na nÓg have been issued so that every club can have adequate notice of when competition is to begin. There now remain eight weeks until the beginning of the first of the preliminary rounds.

The actual dates are as follows

First Round – Friday, Saturday and Sunday, 26th, 27th and 28th October 2018

Semi Finals – Friday 9th and Saturday 11th November

County finals  Sunday 25th November.

Times and venues for the  events will be issued in due course.

The Ulster semi-finals of Scór na nÓg will be held in early December. It is not yet known if there will be either two or three semi-finals in this year’s event. A decision on this will be made early in September to continue with last year’s procedure or return to the older three semi-finals format.

The Ulster Final will be held on Saturday 12th January 2019 and the All Ireland finals will be held in the RDS, Dublin on Saturday 23rd February 2019.

Should any club require assistance with preparing for Scór do not hesitate to get in touch with any member of the Culture and Language Committee.
