Laois Scór na nÓg will take place in St Fintan’s Hall Mountrath on Friday 23 November.
The competition is open to all GAA members under-17 on 1 January 2018 or younger who can dance, sing, play instruments, tell stories or take part in a novelty group.
A table quiz is also being held at the request of participating clubs, in a shorter format.
It’s four members per team for entry to the quiz, and it is advised if you have more teams to have a local quiz and let the winning team go forward.
Scór competitons are organized along similar lines to hurling and Gaeilic football championships where the following events take place: Rince Fóirne (Céilí Dancing) Amhránaíocht Aonair (Solo Singing) Ceol Uirlise (Instrumental Music) Aithriseoireacht/Scealaíocht (Recitation/Storytelling) Bailéad Ghrúpa (Ballad Group) Leiriú (Novelty Act) Rince Seit (Set Dancing) Tráth na gCeisteanna (Table Quiz).
The winning team in each event, apart from the Table Quiz, will go on to compete in the semi-finals for Leinster in mid December, while the Leinster final will take place mid January.
The winning table quiz team will automatically go straight through to the All-Ireland in Castlebar.
To win an All-Ireland title is seen as a great achievement and honor for any club.
So don’t forget the date – Friday 23 November. Registration takes places 7.30pm, with the proceedings starting at 8pm. Hope to see you all there.
We would encourage clubs to try and get organized for this event as soon as possible.
Your club will have received two of the new Scór booklets via your club secretary so please get someone in your club to take it on.
A notice in your local shop or on your Club’s Facebook page might elicit interest by individuals, fans or other interested parties.
