“I am delighted that Irish TV is covering both the national Scór finals this year as the promotion of all aspects of our culture is an important part of the GAA ethos,” said Uachtarán CLG Liam Ó Néill.
“The Scór competition has provided a very important social and cultural dimension to the GAA since it’s foundation in 1969.
“The club Scór competitions shine a spotlight on the passion and enthusiasm that exists for our rich Irish heritage within the Association and I want to compliment all who supported and promoted it over the years,” said O’Neill.
Scór was founded by Cork native Derry Gowen in 1969 to nurture and promote all aspects of Irish heritage, traditional music, songs and dance under the Cumann Lúthchleas Gael banner.
Scór offers GAA members and clubs the social outlet to participate in a range of stage activities with the national finals showcasing the core values of the GAA at its very best.
Irish TV CEO Pierce O’Reilly said he was delighted to be working with Coiste Náisiúnta Scór on this project as like the GAA, Irish TV is part of every community across the country both north and south.
“Our motto is local stories global audience and this fits perfectly with the GAA. Scór is an intricate part of club and community life in Ireland and the national finals are a wonderful showcase,” said O’Reilly.
Former Scór participants include several legendary GAA stars like Armagh stalwart, Jarlath Burns while household names from the entertainment world like Tommy Fleming, Eleanor Shanley and founder of Ragús Fergal Ó Murchú all first took to the stage at Scór finals.
Liam Ó Laochdha, Cathaoirleach Coiste Náisiúnta Scór said the Irish TV coverage is a very important element in promoting the cultural side of the GAA.
“Irish TV has its finger on the pulse of rural Ireland and we are thrilled to get this coverage. These programmes will showcase a very important aspect of the GAA that rarely gets any media attention and we are thrilled to be working with Irish TV,” he said.
The Scór na nÓg Final takes place on February 14 at Citywest Hotel in Dublin with the Senior Scór Final set to take place there also on April 25.
