Participation in Scór has increased Three Fold

May 28th, 2010

‘Participation in Scór has almost tripled in the past three years and the numbers attending Scór competitions has also increase significantly’ – that was the message from Scór Chairperson Micéal Greenan at GAA Congress.

An chathaoirleach felt that Scór showcasing during the 125th Anniversary of the GAA and through the 40th anniversary of Scór, has helped increase the profile of Scór.  The profile of scór has also increased also due to the fact that Scór now participates in all Ulster inter-county and club championship matches. An chathaoirleach urged all county Scór officers to ensure that this continues.

Micéal Greenan also warmly congratulated Harry McEvoy on receiving the president’s award for his service to Scór over the years.

During his report Scór Secretary Fergus Magee said, “Scór is a central and integral part of an Chumann Lúthchleas Gael and is becoming more important than ever in a fast changing world where we are trying to hold on to our unique and ancient cultural values. Our language, music, song, dance and storytelling which have been handed down to us through the generations, is possibly more valuable today than ever before and it is our duty to maintain, nurture and develop this seod luachmhar.”
