“Scór is upon us again”
The Scór season is about to begin again in Tír Eoghain for the fiftieth 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 two of the disciplines which make up the Scór programme.
Achieving this target of two 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 six weeks until the beginning of the first of the preliminary rounds.
The actual dates are as follows
First Round – Friday, Saturday and Sunday, 18th, 19th and 20th October 2019
Semi Finals – Friday 8th and Saturday 10th November
County finals – Sunday 24th November.
Times and venues for the events will be issued in due course.
The Ulster semi-finals of Scór na nÓg will be held on 8th and 14th December.
The Ulster Final will be held on Saturday 4th January 2020 and the All Ireland finals will be held in the INEC, Killarney on Saturday 1st February 2020.
