At a meeting of Coiste Náisiúnta Scór yesterday evening it was confirmed the Scór na nÓg All-Ireland Finals would take place on the Sunday of the May Bank Holiday weekend, 1st of May, 2022, in the INEC in Killarney. It was also confirmed that the 2022 Scór Sinsir All-Ireland Finals would take place in the same venue on Saturday, 15th of October.
A draw was made regarding the running order of the provincial finals, and it was agreed that all four finals would take place over the same weekend due to time constraints. Beidh Babhtaí Ceannais Uladh agus Chonnacht ar siúl ar an Satharn, 2 Aibreán, agus beidh Babhtaí Ceannais Ceannais na Mumhan agus Laighean ar siúl ar an Domhnach, 3 Aibreán.
Dúirt Cathaoirleach Choiste Náisiúnta Scór, Tomás Ó Muirí;
‘Tá an-áthas orainn na dátaí agus an t-ionad do Bhabhtaí Ceannais Scór 2022 a fhógairt agus tá sceitimíní orainn go mbeidh muid ag filleadh ar Chill Airne agus ar an INEC, ach go háirithe. We are delighted to announce dates for our 2022 Scór Finals, and we are very excited to be returning to the INEC in Killarney.
‘Due to the uncertainty caused by the pandemic 2022 Scór Finals will take place this year at times of the year not usually associated with Scór, but we very much hope to realign our competitions to their traditional dates from 2023 onwards – although this will not happen without it’s challenges. However, the most important thing is that we can all look forward to a return to Scór action with some sort of certainty and our young Scór na nÓg GAA members can look forward to Scór competition for the first since January 2020.
‘Guím gach rath ar chuile dhuine a bheidh ag glacadh páirte i Scór i mbliana agus tá mé cinnte go bhfuil féasta mór ceoil, damhsa, scéalaíochta, aisteoireachta agus amhránaíochta amach romhainn 2022. Beirigí bua agus beannacht.’

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 in 1969 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 Football and Hurling had ceased.
There are eight events/disciplines in Scór that cover all aspects of Irish culture: Figure/Céilí Dancing, Solo Singing, Ballad Group, Recitation/Scéalaíocht, Nuachleas/Novelty Act, Instrumental Music, Set Dancing and Table Quiz. The competition is divided into two age levels, Scór na nÓg, for young people under 17 and Scór Sinsir, for those over 17.
Eagraítear Scór go dátheangach – i nGaeilge agus i mBéarla – agus fáiltítear roimh iontrálacha sa dá theanga.
