What is 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 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 field sports are on a break.
Scór seeks to advance the aspiration of the GAA to actively support the Irish language, traditional Irish dancing, music, song, and other aspects of Irish culture, through a range of competitions at youth and adult levels, designed to encourage participation, enjoyment, inclusivity and excellence. There are eight events/disciplines in Scór that cover all aspects of Irish culture:
- Rince Foirne: Figure or Ceilí Dancing
- Amhránaíocht Aonair: Solo Singing
- Aithriseoireacht/scéalaíocht: Recitation/Storytelling
- Bailéad Ghrúpa: Ballad Group
- Léiriú stáitse: Stage Presentation
- Ceol Uirlise: Instrumental Music
- Rince seit: Set Dancing
- Tráth na gCeist: Table Quiz

Scór in Kevin’s
Kevin’s first entered Scor in the 1970’s with an adult ballad group and have also participated in the Table Quiz. We also established a Scor na nOg group for our youth members in 2019 entering the Ballad Group and and Instrumental Music competitions. In our first year of entry we won the Dublin championship and represented our county in Leinster. Scor is open to all members of the local community and you don’t have to be a hurler or camog to participate.
