Due to the Covid-19 Pandemic we were forced to call a halt to Scór Sinsir 2020 competition in early March. In the intervening period coistí Scór at provincial, county and club level have been innovative in using social media and other fora to promote Scór. Molaim go mór na feachtais sin agus gabhaim buíochas le gach duine a bhí páirteach iomtu.
As Ireland now moves out of “lockdown” and restrictions imposed North and South are being lifted we have had many enquiries as to what is intended for Scór competition in the coming months. With that in mind, an online meeting of Coiste Náisiúnta was held last weekend to ascertain the views of Coiste members across the country. Arising from that discussion a number of decisions were unanimously agreed. The purpose of this letter is to inform all units of:
Situation at Present
At the point where Scór Sinsir 2020 competition ceased, three provinces were at provincial final stage and the fourth (Munster) had county finals to complete. Current regulations set 50 people as the maximum allowed at an indoor event and this will change to 100 in the coming weeks. A Provincial or National final with four competitors in each of the 8 stage events, together with mentors, adjudicators, stage, lighting and sound hands, stewards and organisers involve a minimum of 220 persons without an audience. While all the conditions attached to “Return to Play” on our pitches will not apply to Scór competition, a certain number will in terms of safeguarding competitors and others in contact with them. An event requiring overnight accommodation as is the norm in Scór All-Ireland Finals is fraught with dangers.
The members of Coiste Náisiúnta Scór were unanimously agreed on the following points:
Should the situation relating to Covid 19 change dramatically we will revisit these decisions as required. In all events changes will be notified in good time to give everyone certainty of the path ahead and time to prepare.
Idir an dá linn, tugaigí aire daoibh fhéin agus do bhur muintir. Leanaigí ar aghaidh ag canadh, ag seint agus ag rince agus déanaigí bhur ndícheall imeachtaí Scór a choimeád i mbéal agus i súil an phobail.
Le gach dea-ghuí
