Laois clubs encouraged to enter annual Scór competition

Entries are currently being accepted for the Laois Scór competition which takes place at the end of the month.

Laois Senior Scór is due to take place on Friday 28th February in Portlaoise.

This competition is open to all GAA members over 17 years (over 17 on February 1, 2020) who can dance, sing, tell a yarn, play an instrument or be part of a novelty group.

The winning team in each event will go on to compete in the Leinster semi finals in Wexford on Sunday March 8 whilst the Leinster Final will take place on March 22.

To facilitate everybody, entries for this competition must be notified to the county board on administrator.laois@gaa.ie or nevinjohnp@eircom.net on or before this Friday, February 14.

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.

It is interesting to note the All Ireland Scór champions are presented with their medals by the President of the GAA.

Winners are All-Ireland champions in their own right in the same way as All-Ireland Senior Football or Hurling Final winners!
