Scór na nÓg finals this weekend

Well done to our friends and fellow Comhaltas members from Killeagh parish; Cathal Brady, Helen Brady, Muireann Carton, Rachel Dunne and Ciaran Brennan who make up the Na Fianna Instrumental group, their mentor James Hogan and also to the Ferbane / Belmont ballad group who represented their GAA club, county and province in the All Ireland Scór na nÓg finals.

The Competitions took place in ‘The Venue’ at Ebrington this Saturday February 23rd as Derry hosts the national finals of Scór na nÓg for the first time.

Unfortunately success eluded both groups this time around, who knows what next year will bring.

 

To borrow a quote from the Derry Journal “Scór is a GAA competition which promotes traditional Irish music and culture and involves people of all ages.

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

Scór winners are  regarded as All-Ireland champions and are presented with their medals by the GAA president just like All-Ireland senior football and hurling winners”.
