Co. Final of Scór na nÓg   – CANCELLED

Saturday 5th  December at 7pm pm

Donaghmore/Ashbourne GAA Club.

A Rúnaí a Chara,

 Please forward this IMPORTANT information to your club’s Irish Officer or Scór Co-Ordinator. Act on this letter IMMEDIATELY  please to ensure that your club is represented at Scór na nÓg.

  1. Final of Scór na nÓg :- The Co. Final of Scór na nÓg, the GAA’s talent competition for young people under 17, takes place on Saturday 5th December at 7pm sharp in Donaghmore/Ashbourne GAA Club.
  1. Leinster Semi-Final :- The winners from the Co. Final will represent Meath in the Leinster Semi-Final on Sunday 13th December.
  1. General Rules :-
  • Competitors must be under 17 years of age on 1st January 2015 and must be registered GAA members.
  • A club may only have one entry per event.
  • A team in a group event may only comprise of members from one club.
  • There is no requirement to have acts in any event in the Irish language.
  • ENTRY FEE:- There is an Entry Fee of €20 per club (regardless of the number of events being competed in) and this should be brought along on the night of the Co. Final. This will cover participation in the Table Quiz which will be held in early 2015.

I have copies of the new Scór Rules cahngeand Information booklet and I can post one to any club that requests one.  Just to highlight some of the significant changes introduced last year :-

  1. Entry Form :- The Entry Form should be completed and emailed to meath@gaa.ir by midday on Wednesday 5th December. Entries will be accepted on the night but we ask clubs to get their Entry Form submitted as requested so that we know the schedule and a programme can be prepared.   
  1. Admission Charge to Co. Final :- Adults €5, Children €3, Competitors – Free of Charge
  1. Getting Entries from YOUR club :- Since Scór comprises seven separate events covering music, song, dancing, drama and comedy, and a club only needs an entry in just one of the events, there is no reason why every club in Meath should not have an entry. The young people who can dance, sing, play music and act are in your parish and community. Your club needs to contact them and get them to participate. The one key step required to achieve that is to get somebody in the club or the local community who has an interest in Irish music, song, dance etc. to be the Scór Co-Ordinator (your club’s Irish Officer is an obvious option but may not be the best option or even want to in all cases). Make sure that contact is made with local schools, ideally through a teacher who is also involved in your club.

Select a Scór Co-Ordinator immediately therefore, give them the necessary information and that should go a long way to ensuring an entry for your club in Scór na nÓg.

 Scór is a fantastic competition and a wonderful outlet for the talents of young people. It is OUR competition in the GAA and it is clubs who must promote and support it. So get those talented young people in your parish performing on stage and representing your club on 5th December.

Feel free to contact me for any information or assistance.

  • ENTRY FEE:- There is an Entry Fee of €20 per club (regardless of the number of events being competed in) and this should be brought along on the night of the Co. Final.

4.      Major Changes to Scór :- There are some significant changes to Scór this year. The new rules can be viewed on the Meath GAA web site. Also I have copies of the new Scór Rules and Information booklet and I can post one on to any club that requests one. 
The most significant changes to be aware of are:-

 

  • A club can participate by having an entry in just one event rather than the previous minimum of two events.
  • The Novelty Act competition has been replaced by a new competition called Leiriu (the nearest English equivalent would be Depiction or Representation). Basically it is a 12 minute (max) drama (including setting-up and removal of props) depicting an event or events from the history or mythology of Ireland. It can include comedy, live music, singing and dance. It is for a group of at least 3 and a max of 8 people. As regards props only hand held props (a hand held prop is defined as an object carried on stage by hand by a performer) are allowed.
  • The Quiz is gone and has been replaced by a Table Quiz which although part of Scór will be held on a separate date at both county and All Ireland Final level. Each county winner will qualify direct for the All Ireland Final. The Meath Co. Final of the Table Quiz will be held in January on a date which will be advised to clubs next week.
  • All time penalties are now imposed at the rate of one mark for the first ten seconds (or part thereof) and one additional mark per second thereafter.
  • The “Dance On” and “Dance Off” in Figure / Ceili Dancing and Set Dancing are limited to a max of 16 bars of music in each case. The penalty for breaching that rule is 10 marks in each case.
  • Solo Singing:- Accompaniment can only be by the competitor themselves. Accompaniment by someone else is no longer allowed. The song can only be of maximum six minutes duration. Time penalties as already described will apply if that rule is breached.
  • Instrumental Music:- The only electrified instrument, mains or battery operated, that is allowed is a battery-operated keyboard which can only be used in piano mode.
  • Schools of dancing costumes are not allowed, while the wearing of dancing wigs is also forbidden. A breach of either of those rules will incur disqualification.

5.      Entry Form :- The attached Entry Form should be completed and emailed to richardharahill@eircom.netby midday on Tuesday 26th November. Entries will be accepted on the night but we ask clubs to get their Entry Form submitted as requested so that a programme can be prepared.
6.      Admission Charge to Co. Final :- Adults €5, Children €3, Competitors – Free of Charge
7.      Getting Entries from YOUR club :- Given that the competition comprises seven separate events covering music, song, dancing, drama and comedy, and that a club only needs an entry in just one of the events, there is absolutely no reason why every club in Meath should not have an entry. The young people who can dance, sing, play music and act are in your parish and community. What is required is for your club to contact the relevant young people and get them to perform. The one key step required to achieve that is to get somebody in the club or the local community who has an interest in Irish music, song, dance etc. to be the Scór Co-Ordinator (your club’s Irish Officer is an obvious option but may not be the best option or even want to in all cases). Make sure also that contact is made with local schools, ideally through a teacher who is also involved in your club.
Select a Scór Co-Ordinator immediately therefore, give them the necessary information and that should go a long way to ensuring an entry for your club in Scór na nÓg.

 

Scór is a fantastic competition and a wonderful outlet for the talents of young people. It is OUR competition in the GAA and it is clubs who must promote and support it. So get those talented young people in your parish performing on stage and representing your club on 30th November.
