Scór Sinsir 2022 – Dátaí don Dialann


Le Jamie Ó Tuama

Tá Scór ar ais! Scór is back! The time has come for GAA clubs and members from up and down the country and further afield to dust down the bróga damhsa and the uislisí ceoil, to start rehearsing their songs and recitations and to polish up their novelty act skills.

Many, many days entertainment lie ahead and the aim for many, as well as entertaining their fellow GAA friends, family and neighbours, will be to reach a county, provincial or All-Ireland final and to bring and showcase their talents on bigger stages.

The following dates have been confirmed for the provincial finals. Beidh Babhtaí Ceannais Uladh ar siúl ar an Satharn, 15 Deireadh Fómhair agus beidh Babhtaí Ceannais na Mumhan ar siúl an lá arna mhárach, Dé Domhnaigh, 16 Deireadh Fómhair. Is ar an Satharn, 22 Deireadh Fómhair, a bheidh Babhtaí Ceannais Ceannais Laighean ar siúl agus is ar an Domhnach, 23 Deireadh Fómhair a bheidh Babhtaí Ceannais Chonnacht ar siúl. Beidh Babhtaí Ceannais na hÉireann ar siúl in Amharclann an TF, Caisleán an Bharraigh, ar an Satharn, 12 Deireadh Fómhair ar 2.00pm. The Scór Sinsir All-Ireland Finals will take place in the TF Theatre, Castlebar, on November, 12th.

Dúirt Cathaoirleach Choiste Náisiúnta Scór, Tomás Ó Muirí;

‘Tá an-áthas orm go bhfuil séasúr Scór 2022 buailte linn agus tá sceitimíní orm go mbeidh muid ag filleadh ar Amharclann an TF agus ar Chaisleán an Bharraigh an athuair! We are delighted to be returning to Castlebar’s TF Theatre this year for the Scór Sinsir All-Ireland Finals and I am delighted that Scór Sinsir is up and running again.

‘I would like to wish all participants, organisers, adjudicators and supporters all the very best of luck in the months ahead. Guím gach rath ar chuile dhuine a bheidh ag glacadh páirte i Scór Sinsir i mbliana. Tá mé cinnte go bhfuil féasta mór ceoil, damhsa, scéalaíochta, aisteoireachta agus amhránaíochta amach romhainn. Beirigí bua agus beannacht.’

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.

There are eight events/disciplines in Scór that cover all aspects of Irish culture: Figure/Céilí Dancing, Solo Singing, Ballad Group, Recitation/Scéalaíocht, Nuachleas/Novelty Act, Instrumental Music, Set Dancing and Table Quiz. The competition is divided into two age levels, Scór na nÓg, for young people under 17 and Scór Sinsir, for those over 17.

Eagraítear Scór go dátheangach - i nGaeilge agus i mBéarla - agus fáiltítear roimh iontrálacha sa dá theanga.

You can keep up to date with all Scór activity on Facebook @GAAScórOifigiúil.
