Scòr na nÒg

August 22nd, 2017 | Scór

A Chairde,

It is time to start thinking about Scór na nÓg with the Antrim finals on in November. St. Brigid’s has some wonderful talent that represented the club last year and we are looking to increase our numbers this year in all events. All competitors must be under the age of 17 for Scór na nÓg (minimum 12). The 8 disciplines are:

– Rince Foirne- Ceili Dancing (minimum of 4 and maximum of 8)
– Amhránaíocht Aonair – Solo singing
– Aithriseoireacht/Scéalaíocht – Recitation/story telling
– Bailéad Ghrúpa – Ballad Group (Minimum of 3 and maximum of 5 singers)
– Léiriú Stáitse – Stage Presentation
– Ceol Uirlise – Instrumental music (minimum of 3 and maximum of 5 musicians)
– Rince Seit – Set dancing
– Tráth na gCéist – Table quiz (this is a separate event to the other categories)

Scór really is a fantastic aspect of the GAA to be involved in. So don’t miss out! A county medal in Scór is exactly the same as a county medal in any other sport in GAA. The President of the GAA, Aogán Ó Feargháil presents the All Ireland medals to Scór competitors just like he does for hurling and football.

Below is the Scór rule book and a promotional video developed by Antrim’s cultural officer Bronagh Lennon.
