Scór

 
The GAA through its clubs has played a significant part in the revival of our Irish culture and heritage in creating an understanding and interest in its importance through the creation of Scór.
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.

The GAA through its clubs has played a significant part in the revival of our Irish culture and heritage in creating an understanding and interest in its importance through the creation of Scór.

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.

In the Official Guide of the Gaelic Athletic Association, Rule 4 states as a clear objective the following: "The Association shall actively support the Irish language, traditional Irish dancing, music, song and other aspects of Irish culture." This is exactly what the GAA sets out to achieve through Scór at all levels.

Scór na nÓg caters for the younger GAA members up to the age of 17 years. Scór Sinsear caters for adult members. Scór na bPaistí caters for younger members up to National School to compete to County Level.

The Competitions start with Regional Finals in each County. The County winners go through to the Provincial Finals with the winners at that stage qualifying for the All-Ireland Finals.

Emmets GAA, is located in the heritage town of Listowel, Co Kerry, the home town to the well known playwright the Late John B Keane, Author the late Brian McMahon and singer/song writer The Late Gary McMahon. 

The Club is very proud to be involved with Scór promoting our Irish Culture & Heritage and encouraging our young people in the Club to participate in Scór at all levels - Scór na bPaistí, Scór nÓg and Scór Sinsear.
