Scór na bPáistí


The rules for Kerry Scór na bPáistí were formally put forward for ratification at the County Committee meeting dated 17/2/2014 with the following explanation: 


The majority of the rules are the same for Scór Sinsir and Scór na nÓg. The following are the proposed changes only applying to scor na bPáistí.


-The set danced must be a Kerry Set (why? to protect the tradition of Kerry Sets)
- The table quiz will consist of 50 questions (100 questions is too many for u12s) The table quiz will have divisional winners (if all teams progressed to the county final, the number of teams would be far too big)
-The GAA questions will only go back 5 years (more appropriate for this age group)

All other rules as per the official rule book.

The inaugural Scór Na nÓg Table Quiz took place on Saturday night last November 30th at the I.S.K. Killorglin. This year the format for this category was changed and is now ran on a separate date to both Scór na nÓg and Scór Sinsear. 
Even though only 8 clubs participated; Austin Stacks, Kilcummin, Listowel Emmets, Fossa, Currow, Beaufort, Laune Rangers and Spa, it was a great occasion. Certainly it was a close contest all through and with only a point separating the top 3 teams at the final round of questions -went to a tie breaker between Listowel Emmets; (Daniel Sheehan, Sean Carey Daly, Jack Donovan, Eddie Browne) and Currow; (Jack Griffin, Alex Fleming, Padraig Broderick, Jonathan Hilliard),to decide who would finish in second place. 
However it was the latter who took second spot to receive their runner up medals, but the team that will represent the County in the All Ireland Finals of Scór Na nÓg in Castlebar on Friday February 28th, the eve of the Scór Na nÓg Finals will be Spa; Niámh Clifford, Thomas Fleming, James Lynch and Michael Aherne.
