Scór na nÓg County Finals 2017

Wednesday 08.11.2017
Team Talk Mag


This past weekend has seen the semi-finals of Scór na nÓg concluded at two different venues in the county, Eglish on Friday 3rd November and Dún Uladh Centre on Sunday 5th November. All in all, so far, this has been a most successful season in Scór na nÓg with a total of forty three clubs participating in the eight different disciplines that make up the Scór schedule. This is in itself a magnificent achievement for clubs that go the extra mile to participate in all of the GAA activities on offer. The general aim of Coiste Cultúir agus Teanga is to have all the clubs of the county participating in Scór by the year 2019, which marks the 50th anniversary of the inception of Scór.

So far the revelation of the season has been the huge increase in the number of clubs taking part in Ceol Uirlise – Instrumental Music. This increase is largely due to the increased interest in learning to play a musical instrument. The talent on show for the first rounds and semi-finals has been phenomenal. While all the other disciplines also enjoy the exposure to competition most are clearly maintaining their interest levels. There does appear to be a slight fall off in competition at Rince Seit but this can be easily remedied by encouraging more clubs to participate in this skill.

Nevertheless the make-up of this year’s County Finals promises to provide us with an excellent evening’s entertainment. The finals take place in Galbally Community Centre on Sunday 19th November beginning at 3.00 pm.

This, of course, is the beginning of a quest for a county title which in turn will allow the relevant champion to represent Tír Eoghain in an Ulster semi-final. It is Tír Eoghain’s turn to host a semi-final which is also to take place in Galbally. The provincial semi-final takes place on Sunday 3rd December commencing at 5.00 pm. Competing counties in this event will come from Cavan, Donegal, Armagh and Tyrone. The second Ulster Semi Final will take place at a Derry venue, one week later, on Sunday 10th December. Two competitors will qualify from each semi-final and go forward to the Ulster Finals to be held in St Patrick’s Grammar School in Downpatrick on Saturday 13th January 2018.

The All Ireland Finals, with the ultimate prize of being crowned All Ireland Champions, will be held in Sligo Institute of Technology on Saturday, 17th February 2018, also beginning at 3.00 pm.
