With the onset of dark evenings and November nights, thoughts of many club members turn to Scor and the cultural aspects of the GAA. As a county Tyrone has long been to the forefront in promoting Scor and finding innovative ways of encouraging clubs to participate in this unique area of the Association. In addition to this the cultural committee has been working hard to promote the use and learning of the Irish language among members through clustering of clubs. Tyrone received special recognition and praise at Croke Park earlier this year for the work being done to develop the language. In addition to these solid foundations already put in place further new cluster groups have been set up that will build on this good work. Details on these are available from Donal Magee, Cliodhna Kerr or any member of the Culture Committee.
As for Scor this weekend sees the semi finals of Scor Na nOg and with so much talent on offer at both venues large crowds can be expected at St. Joseph’s Hall in Omagh on Friday night and then again in St. Patrick’s Hall Eglish on Sunday. There will be almost thirty clubs in total taking part over the two nights and as always the quality of entertainment will be well worth seeing.
