What is Scor?

Scór is a GAA competition that combines all the colour and rivalry of Gaelic Games with the social/fun element of Ireland’s traditional past-times. The competition was established by the GAA in 1969 with the aim of promoting Ireland’s traditional pastimes and culture while offering club members the chance to meet up, have fun and represent their club during the winter months while Football and Hurling had ceased.

Event Catagories

There are eight events/disciplines in Scór that cover all aspects of Irish culture:

English / Bearla Irish / Gaeilge
Figure/Céilí Dancing Rince Fóirne

Instrumental Music Ceol Uirlise
Recitation Scéalaíocht
Ballad Group Grúpa Bhailéad

The competition is divided into two age levels, Scór Na nÓg, for young people under 17 and Scór Sinsear, for those over 17.
